CLEVELAND (AP) — Browns All-Pro right tackle Jack Conklin will miss at least three games after being placed on injured reserve with a dislocated elbow.

Conklin got hurt in the second quarter of last weekend’s 15-10 loss to Pittsburgh.

He had just returned after missing two games with a knee injury.

Blake Hance will start for Conklin on Sunday as the Browns visit the Cincinnati Bengals.

Any player placed on IR must miss a minimum of three games.

It’s possible Conklin could be out longer, but coach Kevin Stefanski said he expected him to return this season.

The team released wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on Friday. He’d been in Cleveland since 2019.

The team said in part, “After careful consideration, internal discussions and conversations with Odell and his representation… it is best that we move forward as a team without Odell.”

The Browns face the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday at 1 p.m.
