Browns WR Edwards Accused of Punching Man at Nightclub

By  | 

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns coach Eric Mangini said he has spoken with wide receiver Braylon Edwards about an alleged fight outside a
Cleveland nightclub Monday morning.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that a 28-year-old man accused Edwards of punching him in the face following an argument. The man said Edwards hit him with a closed fist. He said he suffered a black eye and cut and was treated at a hospital.

Mangini said he was aware of the incident. He added his players' personal conduct is important and that he was still gathering information on the incident.

Edwards did not catch a pass in Sunday's 23-20 overtime loss to Cincinnati. It was the first time in 62 career games Edwards did not have at least one reception.
