Cleveland Browns DL Marcus Bernard Out for Season After Accident

Various Cleveland media outlets are reporting on Wednesday morning that Cleveland Browns defensive lineman Marcus Bernard will miss the rest of the season and will be placed on the non-football, injured reserve list. Cleveland based reporter Scott Petrak reported this on the situation:

#Browns DE Benard placed on reserve-nonfootball injury list. Officially done for year. Still in hospital.

The situation with Bernard is pretty messy, but at this point you can’t do anything but wish him a speedy recovery and hope he can figure his legal issues out.

In the meantime, the Browns added a defensive lineman to the practice squad. From Petrak via Twitter:

#Browns sign DT Kiante Tripp to practice squad. Went to Georgia.

Tripp is a 6’6" 295 pound rookie from Georgia who was a key reserve for the team last season.
