Browns center Cameron Erving was taken to the hospital after Sunday’s loss to the Ravens and spent the night before being released on Monday morning with a pulmonary contusion.
Erving’s status for future games will be handled on a week-to-week basis, leaving the Browns with some shuffling to do on the offensive line. Right guard John Greco will take over at center with Alvin Bailey stepping in to Greco’s old spot, which makes sense given Greco’s past experience at the position.
It does leave the team short on backups, something that they are remedying on Tuesday. Multiple reports have the team signing Austin Reiter off of the Redskins practice squad and Reiter’s agent told Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com that Reiter is on his way to Cleveland.
Reiter was a 2015 seventh-round pick out of South Florida and spent last year on the practice squad. He made the initial cut to 53 players this year, but was waived last week before rejoining the practice squad.
