Report: Scott Fujita has neck injury that may be career-ending

Browns linebacker Scott Fujita may have played the last game of his NFL career.

Fujita has a neck injury that could be career-ending, and he may never play another game, ESPNís Chris Mortensen reports.

That news comes as a major surprise. Fujita missed Sundayís 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 Fujitaís career could be in jeopardy.

The 33-year-old Fujita is currently embroiled in a fight with the NFL over his suspension in the leagueís investigation of the Saintsí bounty program. The league initially suspended him for three games before cutting his suspension to one game. He is appealing that one-game suspension, and he is still eligible to play at least until his appeal is heard.

But now comes the possibility that Fujita may never play again, ending an 11-year career that has seen Fujita play for the Chiefs, Cowboys, Saints and Browns.

That's sad. Scott was a stand up guy. Wish we would have kept him.

This was a total shock to me as well. Didn't even know there was an issue. I feel bad for him, especially the way things have been with the whole bounty issue. hate to think he'd end his career on such a sour note.

If Fujita has played the last game of his career, I would hope he decides to continue the fight against Der Kommisar...

To make sure the biased nature of the league doesn't happen to another player.

I feel sad about this. Fujita has returned to the attention of New Orleans fans and he defended us and Vilma with the bountygate BS.

I sure wish him the best of luck with his injury. I'll always remember him as a Saint.

Is this where it would be appropriate for a Falcons fan to come in and make a bounty scandal joke? No? Okay...

It's a shame to lose any player, especially in a manner that ends their career. Sucks to hear that.
