  • JC Tretter: Parting ways with Browns

    Tretter will be released by the Browns on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Tretter's release will clear $8.2 million in cap space for the Browns, but losing one of the more reliable centers in the league is also a notable blow for a run-first offense. The transaction appears to open the door for 2020 fifth-round pick Nick Harris to start at center in 2022. Tretter, whose only missed game in the last five years came when he landed in the COVID-19 protocols, will have to play his age-31 season in a new uniform.

    Tretter (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Tretter continued the same trend of the last few weeks, recording just one limited practice but still suiting up Sundays. The presence of the starting center means Michael Dunn and Hjalte Froholdt will likely assume backup roles.

  • Browns' JC Tretter: Good to go Week 2

    Tretter (knee) is active for Thursday's game against the Bengals, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports. Tretter will play through his lingering knee issue for the second consecutive contest.

  • Browns' JC Tretter: Dealing with injury

    Tretter (knee) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Bengals, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Tretter had been dealing with the knee issue all last week before playing in Sunday's game against Baltimore, so the team will be hoping for a similar scenario. Chris Hubbard (ankle), Jack Conklin (ankle/finger) and Jedrick Wills (shin) are all dealing with injury as well, so it's unclear how the offensive line will look for Thursday's contest.

    Tretter (knee) returned to practice Monday, Andrew Gribble of the team's official site reports.
