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.
