Sep 15, 2013; Baltimore, MD, USA; Baltimore Ravens guard Kelechi Osemele (72) prepares to block Cleveland Browns linebacker Barkevious Mingo (51) during the second half at M

Rookie first-round pick Barkevious Mingo would make his first start if injured linebackers Sheard and Quentin Groves, who’s also battling injury, can’t play.

“You know (we’re) still waiting to see how everything unfolds (on the injury front), but if I’m called upon I’m going to take the opportunity and run with it.” Mingo said during a conference call, via The Plain Dealer. “I can if I’m called upon to do so.”


He recorded a sack on his first play and added another one last week in the Browns’€™ 31-27 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Mingo has contributed six tackles and a deflected pass, and looks to be everything the Browns had hoped he’d be when they made him the No. 6 overall pick this past April.
