Browns rookie linebacker Tony Fields has a foot injury that will sideline him a few weeks, coach Kevin Stefanski said Friday.

Fields, who already signed his rookie contract, appeared in nine games for West Virginia in 2020 and totaled 88 tackles, one sack, one interception and three passes defensed.
