The Browns confirmed Jakeem Grant‘s Achilles injury.

“I really feel awful for Jakeem,” Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said in a statement. “We’ve witnessed how hard the young man has worked since he got to our team. We all realize injuries are part of our game, but that doesn’t make it any easier to accept, especially for someone who works as hard and carries himself like Jakeem.”

Grant was carted off with the injury during Tuesday’s practice, and he will miss the 2022 season.

He signed a three-year contract with the Browns as a free agent this offseason. He was a Pro Bowler as a returner last season and was voted a second-team All-Pro in that role in each of the past two seasons.

The Browns also reported that defensive tackle Sheldon Day (back), cornerback Shaun Jolly (groin), cornerback Denzel Ward (foot) and receiver Michael Woods II (hamstring) did not practice Tuesday.

  1. Loved Jakeem Grant on the Dolphins, I hope he has a speedy recovery. There seems to be a black cloud hovering over Cleavland that will not go away.

  2. Art Modell’s curse is in full gear.
    The Browns under Jimmy Haslam will NEVER win a thing . Roger Goodell will see to that.

  3. This is a tough one. I always liked him in Miami. He’s a good return threat with a bit of ability on offense as well. This kind of injury doesn’t bode well for what makes him dangerous. I’d be surprised to see him as a starting returner after this.

  4. Sadly players will keep dropping until a certain QB leaves the team …. karma much ???

  5. candaianpatsfan:” Sadly players will keep dropping until a certain QB leaves the team”. Right, that’s why no other teams have any injuries. Dope.
