Cleveland Browns' D'Qwell Jackson out 3-8 weeks: Browns Insider

The Plain Dealer—Cleveland, OH—August 12, 2010

Browns linebacker D'Qwell Jackson's surgeon told him Thursday that surgery is not necessary and that he could be back in three to eight weeks from a strained right pectoral muscle, a league source told The Plain Dealer.

Jackson's surgeon, Dr. Frank Cordasco of the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, reviewed Jackson's MRI and other tests taken in Cleveland on Tuesday and reached the same conclusion as the Browns' medical staff -- Jackson could be back in a month or two, the source said.

If Jackson makes it back in Cordasco's minimum of three weeks, he could be ready for the season opener Sept. 12 at Tampa Bay. If it takes the full eight weeks, he should be back to play against the Falcons on Oct. 10.
