Scott Fujita injury: Browns LB discusses retirement after being put on IR

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

Scott Fujita will miss the remainder of the season with a neck injury.

Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita has been placed on injured reserve and will miss the remainder of the season which is raising questions about his retirement, according to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com.

Fujita has been experiencing "stingers or numbness and pain" in his surgically repaired neck since he last last played on Oct. 7 against the New York Giants.

Browns kicker Phil Dawson and linebacker D'Qwell Jackson named Fujita the honorary captain for Cleveland's game versus the San Diego Chargers this Sunday, which caused the veteran linebacker to get emotional while declaring that he needs more time to consider his long-term plans.

Fujita has appeared in four games this season for the Browns, recording 14 tackles and one sack.

For his career, the 11-year veteran out of California has 767 tackles, 23.5 sacks and seven interceptions for the Kansas City Chiefs, Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints and the Cleveland Browns.
