Cleveland Browns Latest News & Updates: Cody Kessler Ready For More Sacks, Vows To Play Through Pain
Cody Kessler drew the admiration of many when he showed his willingness to win. While that has yet to happen, the fact that the Cleveland Bowns rookie refuses to sit and make excuses of his condition speaks a lot of his character.
Cody Kessler has taken a beating at quarterback for the Cleveland Browns who have yet to taste victory. He has so far been sacked 10 times, six happening in that loss to the Tennessee Titans. Either way, Kessler made it clear that he is not coming out unless opposing teams find a way to make him quit.
"My brother's fighting through what he's fighting through (a heart ailment)," Kessler said, via Cleveland.com. "So unless they force me to stay out like they did last week, I'm not coming out.
Considering that the Cleveland Browns season may be headed nowhere, Cody Kessler may have just gotten something else for their sacrifice -- respect. Moving forward, Kessler and the Browns may not be showing it now but could eventually do so. But to get there, the Browns need to do a proper analysis of their roster, particularly their durability.
Aside from Kessler, Josh McCown, and Robert Griffin III are on the injury list. Hue Jackson will need to make a proper assessment after this season, which could include releasing several names who have been constantly injured and underperforming.
As mentioned in a previous post, Kessler already drew admiration from two of his teammates -- Terrelle Pryor and Joe Thomas. That alone is proof that even as a rookie, Kessler has gained the attention and respect of some veterans at the Cleveland Browns fold.
Kessler has yet to fully recover from an injury he sustained against the New England Patriots, taking a hit on a backward pass, Fox Sports reported. He may be playing hurt but as long as he can, Cody Kessler will stay on and perform until he is unable to get back up.
