Browns place Anthony Walker on injured reserve

USA TODAY Sports

The Browns placed linebacker Anthony Walker Jr. on injured reserve Friday, the team announced.

Walker is out for the season with a torn quadriceps muscle that requires surgery.

Walker, voted a team captain this season, started all three games. He totaled seven tackles, four tackles for loss and two passes defensed.

Walker initially signed a one-year deal with the Browns in March 2021 and played nine games for the team last season. He re-signed with Cleveland on a one-year deal in March.

The Colts selected Walker in the fifth round of the 2017 draft, and he spent his first four seasons in Indianapolis.

  1. avoiding injuries to star players can bring your season to a grinding halt . hard to over come.. Browns seem to losing there fair share.

  2. Can’t wait until they play actual good teams and find out that beating two very bad teams and losing to another bad team does not make them good. It makes them think they are good until it all comes crashing down. Which it will.

  3. As a Ravens fan I am getting tired of all the injuries – to any team! No answers in sight, but I think most NFL fans want to see a team built in the off season to go out every week and battle. Too often one team is disadvantaged and the game loses something.

  4. the age of paying superstar QBs, WRs, DEs, CBs, such a large portion of the salary cap amplifies the impact of injuries to other starters…most teams are so tight against the cap they can’t pay for quality depth.
    the Browns actually have cap room THIS year, but need to roll it over so they can make it work NEXT year.
