Scott Fujita injury: Browns LB might have career-ending neck issues

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Scott Fujita has already been in the news for various injuries and the drama surrounding the Saints bounty scandal, but now a neck injury places his entire NFL career in jeopardy.

Scott Fujita has already suffered through a myriad of issues on and off the field in the last year as a member of the New Orleans Saints and Cleveland Browns. The former Chiefs linebacker has been one of the key members of the Saints bounty scandal speaking out against NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. He's also had a hard time getting on the field this year due to various injuries. However the latest news is the worst of all.

Fujita has reportedly suffered a neck injury and the extent of that injury could threaten his career. For now it's all speculation, but it's clear that some are expecting the worst. Still it comes as a major shock for most who cover the league.

"That news comes as a major surprise," writes Pro Football Talk's Michael David Smith. "Fujita missed Sunday's game against the Bengals with what the team called a shoulder injury, but he had played in four straight games before that, and there have been no previous reports that Fujita's career could be in jeopardy."

Fujita, 33, played three seasons with the Chiefs and has been in the league for 11 total seasons.
