Myles Garrett isn’t the only defender the Browns lost for the season Thursday night.

Safety Morgan Burnett tore his Achilles against the Steelers, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports Friday night. Burnett will miss the rest of the season.

It was fairly obvious what Burnett’s injury was when he limped off with 1:26 remaining in the first half.

He made five tackles and an interception.

In his first season in Cleveland, Burnett made 41 tackles, two sacks, two pass breakups and an interception in eight games.

  1. It sucks when a player is loss to injury but it happens, but someone made terrible choices and will now be missing the rest of the season. Cuz them it will hurt more and more as the depth chart gets tested through the end of the season

  2. wow that’s really surprising. Make a play, get hurt, rehab, make a play, rehab, get hurt again. Pretty much the story of this guy’s career.
