Cleveland Browns Notes, Quotes 2008-12-03
--QB Derek Anderson hurt his left knee late in the loss to Indianapolis, an injury that could have effects on Anderson's future.


Anderson's left leg bent in when OT Kevin Shaffer fell into him after being bull-rushed by the Colts' Robert Mathis. Mathis then tackled Shaffer and fell on Anderson's knee.

Anderson suffered a torn MCL, but no surgery is necessary. Anderson's future in Cleveland is in question after Brady Quinn ascended to the starting spot.

--OT Kevin Shaffer has had a rough season at right tackle. Shaffer was one of Phil Savage's first free agent signings, but he struggled at left tackle in 2006. He had a decent season in 2007 when he moved to the right following the drafting of Joe Thomas, but this season he has struggled.

The lowlight: Robert Mathis' bull rush that knocked Shaffer over and into the knee of QB Derek Anderson on Sunday. At 245 pounds, Mathis is a speed rusher, but he surprised Shaffer with his rush.

Shaffer also was steamrolled on a key play against Baltimore. That play was a screen pass, but because Shaffer did not hold his ground, the timing was off. The pass was intercepted and returned for a touchdown.
