Cribbs wins AFC Special Teams award

Zac Jackson, Staff Writer


Joshua Cribbs has been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his efforts in the Browns' win over the Steelers last Thursday.


Cribbs had a 55-yard punt return to set up the Browns' first points of the game and averaged 21.5 yards per on two kick returns. He also had a special teams tackle and shined in his usual role as one of the Browns' top kick cover men.


"The award is well deserved," Browns head coach Eric Mangini said. "Josh was outstanding."


Cribbs finished the game with 200 all-purpose yards including a career-high 87 yards rushing.


This is Cribbs' second AFC Special Teams Player of the Week Award. He last won the award on Oct. 4, 2006.


He also won an internal award as Mangini and the coaching staff give out player of the week awards following victories. Cribbs was the outstanding offensive player, while the defensive award went to David Bowens and Blake Costanzo was special teams player of the week. Practice squad linebacker Titus Brown was the practice player of the week.
