BEREA, Ohio (AP) -Cleveland Browns safety Gary Baxter, attempting a comeback from two freak knee injuries, underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on Tuesday.
Baxter, who tore both patellar tendons on the same play in a 2006 game, sat out all last season while rehabbing. A former cornerback, he switched to safety to try and extend his career.
Cleveland coach Romeo Crennel gave no timetable on a return date for the 29-year-old Baxter, who has played in just eight games since signing with the Browns as a free agent in 2005. No player has ever come back and played after tearing both patellar tendons.
