    [size=24px]Browns center Bentley hurts knee first day of campESPN.com news services[/size]



    Bentley
    BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Pro Bowl center LeCharles Bentley sustained an injury to his left knee during the Browns' first 11-on-11 drill of training camp on Thursday.


    Bentley got tangled in a pile of players as he was blocking on a running play for Reuben Droughns.


    Bentley screamed, "No," before remaining on his knees as the Browns moved their scrimmage up the field so trainers could attend to the 6-foot-2, 309-pound player.


    He stayed on the ground in a seated position for several minutes before Cleveland's medical staff immobilized his left knee and carted him to the locker room.


    Bentley covered his face with a towel on the short drive to the field house as Browns players and fans looked on in shock.


    The extent of Bentley's injury is not yet known.


    Bentley, a five-year veteran, signed as a free agent with the Browns in March.

    And Bentley was supposed to be the lynchpin of that offensive line.

    Hopefully it's nothing more than a minor hyper-extension and he can get back in training before the end of camp.

    Your sympathy is overwhelming Vikeswin2005.

    Injury really sucks. I hope he's ok and it's just a minor deal.

    He was the premier O-lineman in FA and if Birk hadn't been coming back that is who I would have wanted the Vikes to go after to replace him. If this is as bad as it seems Cleveland is losing a hell of a player.

    Hoping it is not bad, but it doesn't seem to be a minor injury.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Injuries suck when they happen later, too.
