Braylon Edwards out for season

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns rookie wide receiver Braylon Edwards will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury, yet another setback for one of Cleveland's first-round draft picks.

Edwards, the No. 3 overall selection in the draft, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee while trying to make a leaping catch in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 20-14 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Edwards' knee buckled awkwardly to the inside after he landed stiff-legged on the incompletion. Edwards had caught two touchdown passes from fellow rookie Charlie Frye.

Coach Romeo Crennel said surgery has not been scheduled. Players with similar injuries typically need eight to 12 months of rehab to recover.

Since the Browns rejoined the NFL in 1999, their top picks have either been busts or injured. Of the seven picks, only center Jeff Faine (2003) is starting for the team.

Last season, tight end Kellen Winslow, the club's top pick in 2004, broke his leg in Week 2. He missed all this season after injuring his knee in a motorcycle accident, and was on the sideline for the first time on Sunday.
