After a report that the Browns would be cutting veteran offensive lineman Ryan Tucker and a report refuting that report, there’s a middle ground.
Tucker, the team announced, has been placed on injured reserve. (Yeah, Rosenthal posted something on this earlier. As I now realize.)
The Browns also placed veteran offensive lineman Fred Weary on IR.
Tucker has spent 12 seasons in the NFL, and the past seven with the Browns. Weary was one of the original draft picks of the Texans in 2002. He spent 2008 on injured reserve with Houston, and signed with the Browns earlier this year.
