  • Browns' Montrel Meander: Lands on IR

    The Browns placed Meander on injured reserve Tuesday after he underwent surgery to repair his Achilles tendon, Anthony Poisal of ClevelandBrowns.com reports.

    As expected, Meander has been placed on injured reserve after being carted off the field during Sunday's preseason contest. Anthony Walker is currently the only healthy middle linebacker for the Browns, as Jacob Phillips recently underwent surgery to repair his torn bicep.

  • Browns' Montrel Meander: Rejoins Browns

    Meander signed with the Browns on Friday, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Meander, who started training camp with the Browns, returns to Cleveland after he was waived Monday. The decision to re-sign the 26-year-old linebacker out of Grambling State no doubt was influenced by a run of injuries at the position. Jacob Phillips suffered an elbow injury Friday that's expected to wipe out 2021; Sione Takitaki (hamstring) didn't practice; and Mack Wilson (shoulder) has been limited all week following a blow received in the preseason-opening win over the Jaguars last Saturday. That MASH unit also includes 2021 fifth-round draft pick Tony Fields (foot), who has yet to participate in practice.

  • Montrel Meander: Cut loose by Cleveland

    Meander was waived by the Browns on Monday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.

    Meander was dealing with a nagging hamstring issue last week that caused him to miss the Browns' first preseason matchup against the Jaguars. However, Cleveland did not designate an injury for the 26-year-old when he was waived, suggesting that the hamstring was not the reason for the move. Meander only saw work on special teams during his rookie season and will likely land on a practice squad after clearing waivers.

The 26-year-old has seen mostly second-team reps on defense, so his loss won't have a huge impact. The linebacker saw the field only on special teams during his rookie season in 2020.
