The Cleveland Browns will be short a middle linebacker for "a little while" and a wide receiver for the rest of the season. 

In Sunday's game against the Chargers, wide receiver Rod Streater suffered a stinger during the first play of the game.

Doctors diagnosed Streater with a neck fracture and said he will miss the remainder of the season. 

The Browns said the injury does not require surgery and team doctors expect a full recovery. 

Middle linebacker Joe Schobert suffered a hamstring injury during the third quarter of Sunday's game.

Coach Hue Jackson said he expects Schobert to be out for the foreseeable future. 

“He’ll be down for a little while, how long that will be, we’ll see how that will all unfold,” Jackson said. 

Schobert had 49 tackles, 1.5 sacks and an interception in six games.
