Mangini Sorry for Cribbs' Injury

By  | 

CLEVELAND (AP) - Following wide receiver Josh Cribbs' scary last-second injury, Browns coach Eric Mangini said he wishes he would have handled the final play of Monday night's game differently.

Cribbs was taken to a hospital after he was flattened on a last, meaningless play in Baltimore's 16-0 win over the Browns. Mangini
called it a "competitive situation" and said Cribbs improvised on the pass play by lateraling the ball before being hit by Ravens defensive end Dwan Edwards.

Mangini said Cribbs did not sustain a concussion. He's optimistic that his best playmaker will be available for Sunday's game in Detroit.

Mangini would not say if he thought Edwards' hit was dirty.
