CLEVELAND (WJW) – Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jakeem Grant was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.
Sabol showed video of Grant being carted off the field Tuesday during 1-on-1 drills.
“I really feel awful for Jakeem. We’ve witnessed how hard the young man has worked since he got to our team. We all realize injuries are a part of our game but that doesn’t make it any easier to accept especially for someone that works as hard and carries himself like Jakeem,” head coach Kevin Stefanski said.
The 29-year-old Pro Bowl punt returner/wide receiver was signed in the offseason to a three-year contract, coming to Cleveland from the Chicago Bears.
The deal struck was reportedly worth $13.8 million dollars.
The Cleveland Browns first preseason game is Friday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
