Barker ruptured his left Achilles during Saturday's practice and was subsequently waived with an injury designation, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Barker will be added to Cleveland's injured reserve if he goes unclaimed on waivers, which seems likely since he'll miss the entirety of the 2017-18 season. The 26-year-old lineman was signed this offseason to provide depth to the offensive line.
Barker suffered an ankle injury during Saturday's practice, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
The severity of Barker's injury is still unclear at this time. Cleveland claimed him off waivers in May with the hope he'd be able to provide some depth on the offensive line.
Barker has appeared in six regular-season games over the course of his career, most recently spending all of last season on the Patriots' practice squad before being waived this offseason. He'll have the opportunity to provide depth on the offensive line for the Browns.
