Reynolds (knee) was released by the Browns on Monday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
After clearing waivers last week, Reynolds was initially placed on Cleveland's injured reserve, but the team ultimately released the safety on Monday and gave the IR spot to rookie Rod Johnson (knee). The 25-year-old accumulated 43 tackles in 2016 and is now free to sign with any interested team.
The Browns waived/injured Reynolds (knee) on Tuesday.
Reynolds figured to have a hard time landing on the final roster before going down with a knee injury. He's expected to clear waivers, which will be followed by him reverting to the Browns' injured reserve.
Reynolds (knee) suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament during practice on July 29 and will miss six weeks, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
If Reynolds heals within the time frame suggested in the report, he should be healthy enough to face the Colts in Week 3. Meanwhile, Derrick Kindred is still expected to be the Browns' starting free safety, but Trey Caldwell could see increased reps in Reynolds' absence.
Reynolds is expected to miss significant time with the knee injury he suffered during Saturday's practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Reynolds reportedly didn't suffer a torn ACL, but it's still unclear how severe it is and if it will need surgery. Either way, Reynolds is in line to miss a good chunk of time, putting his availability in question for both the preseason and regular-season opener. Reynolds was expected to battle for snaps as the Brown's backup free safety, which could leave more playing time for Trey Caldwell behind projected starter Derrick Kindred.
