LB D’Qwell Jackson Placed on IR

The Browns today placed linebacker D’Qwell Jackson on injured reserve with a shoulder injury he sustained in last Sunday’s game at Pittsburgh, the team announced. In addition, the club signed defensive lineman Keith Grennan to the practice squad and released defensive lineman Carlton Powell from the practice squad.

Jackson started all six games this season, and recorded a team-high 57 tackles, two passes defensed and one forced fumble.

“It’s disappointing any time you lose a player for the season, and this is especially true with someone like D’Qwell, who has proven to be an outstanding leader for us both on and off the field,” Eric Mangini said in a statement on Tuesday.

Grennan was originally signed to the Browns’ practice squad on September 9, before being released on October 9.

    This is a pretty big setback for a defense that is starting to come together. It looks like the rookies are going to have to step up now, seeing as they didn’t sign a linebacker.

    If there was any doubt this is a rebuilding year, it is now. there is absolutely no reason not to play all the rookies now, and, it is time to PLAY QUINN THE REST OF THE WAY OUT. Let’s see what happens. they’re both gone anyway if they don’t. Play all the rookies and let them swim or sink.

    It is a defense that had moments, that is all — and a lot of other moments that were more than forgettable. We’ve got a second round draft choice that should be able to step in and play; any second round draft choice should be contributing during their first year. Play Francies for McDonald. Why not? McDonald cannot or will not tackle and has blown as many plays as he has made. Whoever the QB is only has to get the ball in the hands of the receivers and backs; if they drop it, they drop it. BQ is already history. There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind by this point that they are not going to play him in Cleveland. DA is playing minutes to get through a season; somebody has to play QB for this dismal excuse of a team. This means a QB in the draft or acquisition of a veteran is going to happen. Half of this roster will not be around next year. For now, this means no consistency and no stability. Enjoy your $8 hot dogs — and the millionaire hotdogs on the field.
