The Browns waived injured players as a part of their initial roster cut down to 75. Three of those players cleared waivers today and made it to the Browns’ injured reserve.
Marcus Benard (DE) Placed on IR (dislocated elbow).
Auston English (DE) Placed on IR (undisclosed).
Antwuan Reed (CB) Placed on IR (undisclosed).
Obviously the most disappointing of those for Browns fans is Marcus Benard. Benard has been productive for the Browns in the past and should have had a good opportunity to contribute again this season at times rotating with Jabaal Sheard, Frostee Rucker and Juqua Parker. After dislocating his elbow in the last pre-season game it won’t happen.
