CLEVELAND — Browns rookie linebacker Barkevious Mingo remains hospitalized after suffering a bruised lung in an exhibition game.

Mingo, the No. 6 overall pick in this year’s draft, is at The Cleveland Clinic. Browns coach Rob Chudzinski says Mingo will spend at least one more night in the hospital and adds he’s not sure how Mingo got hurt in the first half of Thursday night’s game against Detroit.

Mingo was one of five Browns players injured in Cleveland’s 24-6 win. Running back Dion Lewis broke his left leg and will need surgery.

It’s possible the Browns will place the versatile Lewis, acquired in a trade from Philadelphia in March, on injured reserve.
