  • Browns' Grant Delpit: Could play Week 1

    Delpit (hip) could play Week 1 against the Panthers, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.

  • Browns' Grant Delpit: Will start Sunday

    Delpit will start Sunday's contest against the Ravens, Zac Jackson of The Athletic reports. With Ronnie Harrison (ankle) inactive for Week 14, Delpit will draw the start at strong safety. Delpit will have big shoes to fill Sunday, as Harrison tallied a season-high 14 tackles and recorded his first interception of the season during the Browns' Week 12 loss to the Ravens. Delpit normally operates in the slot, so his shift to safety will likely result in Troy Hill garnering plenty of snaps in the slot.

  • Browns' Grant Delpit: Aggravates hamstring injury

    Delpit aggravated his hamstring injury at Wednesday's practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Delpit previously suffered a setback in his recovery process Aug. 13, the severity of which left him looking unlikely for Week 1, so it's worrying to see him now aggravate the issue after attempting to resume practicing Wednesday. An Achilles injury forced the 2020 second-round pick to miss his entire rookie campaign, and it now appears that Delpit's debut with the Browns could be further delayed.

  • Browns' Grant Delpit: Hamstring injury lingers

    Delpit (hamstring) suffered a setback and is unlikely to be ready to go for Week 1, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports. The second-year safety missed all of last season with an Achilles injury and is now struggling to take the field with his hamstring injury. When the 22-year-old gets healthy, he should be in line for a significant role on the talented Cleveland defense. Until then, Ronnie Harrison and John Johnson are expected to occupy the two starting safety spots.

  • Browns' Grant Delpit: Torn Achilles feared

    The Browns fear Delpit tore his Achilles at Monday's practice, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Delpit was selected by the Browns in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft and was expected to start at free safety this season. If a torn Achilles is confirmed, it will bring his rookie campaign to a premature end. Andrew Sendejo would be the prime candidate to start at free safety if that is indeed the case.

  • Browns' Grant Delpit: Ready to answer critics

    Delpit (ankle) enters the NFL motivated to change the perception that he has issues tackling, Shaun Bennett of the Chronicle-Telegram reports. The Browns drafted Delpit in the second round (44th overall) of the 2020 draft. Delpit was ranked higher by some evaluators, but the tackling issue stuck after the safety was credited with 38 missed tackles over the last two seasons. "I'm so tired of hearing that I can't tackle, I might tackle you for asking that question," Delpit said with a big smile Friday night. A high-ankle sprain may have influenced that perception, but Browns general manager Andrew Berry acknowledged Delpit will need to work on tackling technique. "I think that he would be the first to admit that it is something that is going to be a focus of him as an area of improvement coming into the NFL," Berry said. Aside from the ankle, scouts believe he takes bad angles in pursuit, fails to calm his feet, and looks for the big hit instead of proper technique. The Browns see him playing both safety positions and lining up at multiple areas of the field. "It just allows you a lot more flexibility as a defensive coordinator when you have a guy who can play the post proficiently, who can play in the line of scrimmage, cover tight ends and play big nickel. We think that is something that Grant will be able to do at the NFL level," added Berry.
