UPDATE: The Browns have confirmed that Gocong has a ruptured Achilles and will have surgery. He is out for the season.

The Cleveland Browns fear that linebacker Chris Gocong may have ruptured the Achilles tendon on his right leg, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Gocong planted and then grabbed at the back of his right leg after he planted. The injury was a non-contact injury.  Gocong was sent for an MRI to determine the extent of the injury.

"It would be a huge hit,'' said linebacker D'Qwell Jackson. "Chris is a great player.''
