Veteran wide receiver Marquise Goodwin, who signed with the Cleveland Browns in March, was placed on the non-football illness list Friday due to blood clots
The Browns said Goodwin would miss the start of training camp this month after a doctor's check-up revealed blood clots in his lungs and legs. Goodwin had been dealing with slight shortness of breath and leg discomfort
"It was really alarming at first because I've experienced injury throughout my career, but it's never been anything like this that could turn into something detrimental if it's not taken care of," Goodwin told the team's website. "It was frightening at first, but now I'm at ease with it. I've prayed and just given it over to God. It's out of my control, and the only thing I can control is my effort and attitude and how I approach each day moving forward."
Goodwin will still be around the team when camp opens, attending meetings and being present on the practice field without participating.
"I'm grateful for that, and hopefully this thing gets back under control and I can feel my body and what I need to feel so I can help this team make this run," Goodwin said.
Goodwin, 32, spent last season with the Seattle Seahawks and caught 27 passes for 387 yards and four touchdowns in 13 games (two starts).
In nine NFL seasons spent with the Buffalo Bills (2013-16), San Francisco 49ers (2017-19), Chicago Bears (2021) and Seahawks, he has 187 career receptions for 3,023 yards and 18 touchdowns.
