Cleveland Browns’ field at FirstEnergy Stadium was reportedly damaged by someone driving around on it early Tuesday morning.

According to News 5 in Cleveland, the Browns notified the city’s police department and it is investigating the incident as a possible break-in, as it appears someone jumped a fence and used a golf cart to damage the field.

The Browns said repairs were already underway. The team notified the NFL of the situation, and a spokesperson said Cleveland is “confident that it should not impact” Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers

The Cleveland Browns seem to have opened up a can of worms when they signed Deshaun Watson to a guaranteed $230-million contract. Now the NFLPA wants it investigated.

A memo was sent to “club owners, presidents, general managers,” and their lawyers alleging “teams and the league have colluded to prevent clubs from offering players fully guaranteed contracts.” Just another reason for league owners to not like the Browns.

On Tuesday, Ohio State football’s Twitter account revealed that NBA superstar LeBron James donated black and scarlet cleats for the players to wear when the team hosts Michigan on Saturday, which will undoubtedly help in the “look good” department.

Ford just debuted a new type of steering wheel that transforms into a table for your laptop.  It tilts forward when you’re parked, and there’s a tray that fits on top of it.  They’re only offering it in Europe for now though.

It appears Antonio Brown was at it again, allegedly he posted altered images of Tom Brady’s ex-wife Gisele Bundchen in the buff to Snap Chat. The post was taken down shortly after it was posted. What’s not clear is whether it was taken down by Brown…or by Snap Chat content moderators. Either way, it’s hard to imagine what the point of the post might be, other than just another AB dysfunctional attention grab.

On TikTok, a McDonald’s worker is offering up complimentary ordering advice when you’re craving a visit to the Golden Arches.

  • If you want to guarantee completely fresh French fries, order them without salt. Then, ask for packets of salt.
  • Do the same if you want your burger made fresh, too.
  • McD’s fries are best within seven minutes of coming out of the fryer.
  • At the drive-thru, employees can hear everything that’s going on in your car. Keep that in mind.
  • Two six-piece McNuggets are cheaper than one ten-piece box.
  • Using the app can save you some cash.
