The Browns Place Jedrick Wills Jr. and Cameron Mitchell on Injured Reserve
Key Players Sidelined with Injuries
The Cleveland Browns made an unfortunate announcement on Tuesday, revealing that T Jedrick Wills Jr. and CB Cameron Mitchell have been placed on injured reserve. This news comes as a blow to the team, as both players have been valuable assets on the field.
Wills’ Injury Not Season-Ending
Head Coach Kevin Stefanski provided an update on Monday regarding Wills’ condition. He confirmed that the talented tackle suffered an MCL injury during Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. However, Stefanski reassured fans that the injury is not season-ending.
Stefanski expressed his disappointment for Wills, acknowledging his strong performances throughout the season. “Jed’s played some really strong games for us,” Stefanski stated. “I thought he was playing well in that last one yesterday as well. So, disappointed for him, but I know he’ll work really hard and we’ll get him back out there.”
Wills’ Impact on the Browns
Jedrick Wills Jr. has been a crucial component of the Browns’ offensive line, starting in all eight games at left tackle. His presence has greatly contributed to the team’s success, with the Browns currently ranking third in the league for rushing yards per game, averaging an impressive 144.4 yards. Since joining the Browns as a first-round pick in 2020, Wills has started a total of 53 games, showcasing his reliability and skill.
Mitchell’s Consistent Performance
Cameron Mitchell, a fifth-round pick in this year’s draft, has also been impacted by injury. Despite this setback, Mitchell has shown promise on the field, appearing in all eight games and even earning one start. His contributions have not gone unnoticed, and the Browns will undoubtedly miss his presence in the upcoming games.
The Browns will now have to rely on their depth and resilience to overcome the absence of these key players. The team remains determined to continue their successful season and will work tirelessly to ensure the swift recovery and return of Wills and Mitchell.
