It turns out that Cleveland's loss to the Saints was so infuriating that one Browns reporter will miss time for his outburst.

When the Browns host the New York Jets on Thursday Night Football, they'll be without sideline reporter Nathan Zegura. In fact, he'll be banned from the team's broadcasts for the next eight games.

During last Sunday's game, Zegura yelled at an NFL official over a call.

Additional details on his eight-week ban are available on cleveland.com:

During the ban, Zegura will also not participate in the pre-game or post-game shows.

Zegura, co-host of Cleveland Browns Daily which airs from 1-3 Monday through Friday on ESPN 850, will also be removed from that show for two weeks.

One source said that Zegura has been yelled at in the past for similar actions. As of now, the first Browns game that he would be eligible for is on Nov. 25, when Cleveland takes on the Bengals.

With the Browns playing the Jets in primetime tomorrow, Zegura's ban will officially begin.
