Fans hoped to see linebacker Scott Fujita return to help Cleveland’s run defense in the final two games, but the veteran was placed on the injured reserve today, ending his season.â†µ
Fujita suffered a knee injury against the Jets earlier this season and hasn’t played since. In his first season with the team, Fujita finishes with 51 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 1 interception, and 2 forced fumbles.â†µ
The Browns also placed cornerback Eric Wright on the injured reserve yesterday. With two open roster spots, the Browns promoted NT Travis Ivey from the practice squad and signed special teams linebacker, Steve Octavien, formerly of the Dallas Cowboys.
