The Browns re-signed Jackson (hamstring) on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Jackson was waived by the Browns earlier this month after having appeared in 10 regular-season games in 2020, before a hamstring issue caused him to hit IR. Now presumably back to full health, Jackson will return to Cleveland as a quality depth option. He's also proficient on special teams.
The Browns waived Jackson (hamstring) on Thursday, Zac Jackson of The Athletic reports. Jackson appeared in 10 regular-season games with the Browns in 2020 before landing on IR due to a hamstring injury in the playoffs. During that span, Jackson notched six tackles and one pass breakup and he also got his first career start against the Steelers in Week 17. Once back to full health, Jackson will look to earn a depth roster spot elsewhere in the league.
Jackson (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. Head coach Kevin Stefanski said Monday that Jackson was simply day-to-day, but now he'll be unavailable until the Super Bowl. The second-year cornerback out of UNLV made his first career start in the wild-card win over the Steelers, but he was simply going to be depth for the rest of playoffs as long as Denzel Ward and Kevin Johnson returned from the reserve/COVID-19 list as planned.
Head coach Kevin Stefanski said Monday that Jackson (hamstring) is considered day-to-day, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Jackson made his first career start in Sunday's wild-card win over the Steelers, but he exited after 77 snaps. It appears the injury is minor, although he'll be closely monitored through the practice week. Even if he's able to shake the injury, both Denzel Ward and Kevin Johnson have a good chance to return from the reserve/COVID-19 list for Sunday's AFC divisional-round matchup against the Chiefs.
Jackson will make his first career start Sunday against Pittsburgh, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Jackson has seen almost all his reps this season on special teams, but he'll ultimately be the next man up with Denzel Ward on the COVID list. He's only seen six snaps on defense this year, but he and opposite-side corner Terrance Mitchell will be the first line of defense against Mason Rudolph and the Pittsburgh passing attack.
