BAXTER BLOWS OUT BOTH KNEES

Browns cornerback Gary Baxter tore patella tendons in both knees on Sunday while trying to break up a pass, according to the Associated Press.

It's the first time such an injury has occurred, in our recollection, since former Bears receiver Wendell Davis tore two ACLS  on the old green cement surface of Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia, way back in 1993. 

Baxter will have surgery on Tuesday, and is expected to be sidelined for an entire year.  He joined the Browns in 2005 as a free agent, after jumping to Cleveland from the Ravens.  Though we can't remember all of the details (and we're feeling too lazy right now to research it), we vaguely recall that Baxter had a verbal agreement in place with the Ravens before bolting for the Browns.

Said one league source in response to the news:  "[Baxter] has never been durable.  He's a tight athlete.  That was why some people thought [the Browns] overpaid.  Guys who get hurt a lot usually get hurt a lot."
