Browns' Edwards still in hospital with infection

BEREA, Ohio (Oct. 10, 2005) -- Browns rookie receiver Braylon Edwards remained in a hospital, recovering from surgery to eradicate an infection in his right arm that kept Edwards out of a 20-10 win over Chicago and could sideline him longer.

The team was awaiting lab results to determine the nature of Edwards' infection, which caused abnormal swelling near his elbow and prompted a team doctor to perform surgery.

"I know the doctor was satisfied about the surgery he performed to clean out that infection," Browns coach Romeo Crennel said. "After he looks at it, he was hoping it would show good progress and that he would be able to give us some kind of timetable as far as when Braylon may or may not be back."

The Browns were vague in releasing more than the basic information on Edwards, the No. 3 overall pick in April's draft. The team said Edwards will remain in the Cleveland Clinic and continue to receive antibiotics.
