Browns Place Linebacker On Injured Reserve

For all intents and purposes, it appears that the Cleveland Browns are now out of the race for the AFC North crown, with Cincinnati and Baltimore both locked in a tie four games ahead of Cleveland, but with four games to go, there's still plenty on the line as this franchise looks to build towards the future with DeShaun Watson as their starting Quarterback. 

That means that all their young talent will be playing a big role going forward to prove they belong going forward, so it's unfortunate that young linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah will now miss the remainder of the 2022 season after being placed on Injured Reserve with a foot injury.

In two years at the NFL level, Owusu-Koramoah has racked up 146 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 4 forced fumbles and 8 passes defended, and while he's certainly not among the elite young linebackers in the NFL, he's a promising starter for the future, and his absence will certainly be noticed in Cleveland.
