The Browns’ pass rush will take a hit with outside linebacker Quentin Groves out for the rest of the season.
Browns coach Rob Chudzinski confirmed today that Groves needs ankle surgery and will be placed on season-ending injured reserve.
Groves followed defensive coordinator Ray Horton from Arizona to Cleveland this offseason, and he got off to a good start and had a sack in Week One. But in Week Two he suffered the ankle injury that has plagued him throughout the year.
Now Groves’s season has come to an end, with a stat line consisting of just four total tackles, two sacks and one forced fumble.
