Carder (knee) was placed on the Browns' injured reserve after tearing his ACL in Monday's exhibition matchup versus the Giants, Tom Withers of the Aurora Sentinel reports. Carder, a special teams' captain last season, was competing with Joe Schobert for the starting middle linebacker role. He has played in 77 games with the team since 2012, but will now be sidelined until next season.
Carder has a torn ACL and will miss the entire 2017 season, Mary Kat Cabot of Cleveland.com reports. The loss of Carder is a tough blow for Cleveland, as he was expected to start at inside linebacker this year. Carder will undergo surgery in the coming days, clearing the way for Joe Schobert to fill in where necessary.
Carder (concussion) is active Sunday against the Cowboys. Carder sustained a concussion last week against the Jets, but has evidently passed through concussion protocol and should be set for use usual workload on special teams.
Carder entered concussion protocol Monday, ESPN's Tony Grossi reports. Carder, a reserve linebacker, didn't log a single snap on defense Sunday against the Jets, but was on the field for the majority of special teams action. It's unclear when he sustained the concussion, though. However, he is now subject to the NFL's concussion protocol and is questionable to play in Week 9.
The Browns list a whopping 16 players on their Friday injury report, but half are probable for the Week 17 battle in Pittsburgh, including All-Pro tackle Joe Thomas (back). The other offensive players among them are running back Willis McGahee (knee) and tackle Mitchell Schwartz (toe). The four defensive probables are linebackers Paul Kruger (illness) and Tank Carder (shoulder), safety Jordan Poyer (toe) and safety T.J. Ward (shoulder, illness). Punter Spencer Lanning (knee) is also probable.
