Armanti Edwards headed to IR with ankle injury

What looked like a second chance for a young receiver has ended.

According to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports, the Browns are putting wide receiver Armanti Edwards on season-ending injured reserve because of an ankle injury suffered Sunday.

Edwards, who was declared the training camp MVP by the Panthers before being released midseason, got some work with the Browns as a returner.

The former third-round pick, who was a college quarterback at Appalachian State, never got many chances during the regular season with the Panthers, and will now have to wait until next preseason to impress again.

    I saw him in a couple plays in the game on Sunday as I was flipping channels on Sunday Ticket. Didn’t see anything outstanding.

    I think the issue with Edwards is that he was so much faster than everybody else on the I-AA level that he seemed super-human. But moving up to the NFL, he’s not that much faster than everybody else and he can’t make the super plays he made at App St. He never did master route-running in Carolina. Perhaps he will do better in Cleveland with the extra work he will get once the ankle heals.

    That stinks, here’s to a fast recovery. I fear the Browns have a very bad 5-day stretch in their future. Not to mention day 6, when they realize their ride has turned into a pumpkin.

    Sign them and IR them.
    I feel the dam is leaking and about to burst.

    The Browns IR bus should be running out of seats by now.
