Wilds (shouder) reached in injury settlement with the Browns on Tuesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Wilds injured in his shoulder in the latter half of training camp, and was unable to earn a spot on the 53-man roster. He reverted to the team's injured reserve after getting waived/injured by the club. He will now be free to find a new opportunity after he recovers from his shoulder ailment.
Wilds (shoulder) was placed on IR Sunday.
The expected became a reality Sunday once Wilds cleared waivers. The South Carolina product will likely sit out the 2017 season with an opportunity to showcase his skills next year.
Wilds (shoulder) was waived/injured by the Browns on Friday.
Wilds signed with the Browns in late July but recently suffered from a shoulder injury that kept him out of Thursday's preseason finale. He'll now likely end up on the team's injured reserve, where he'll have to be medically cleared before being able to sign with another team.
Wilds (shoulder) is not likely to play in Thursday's exhibition finale against the Bears.
Wilds isn't likely to hold onto a roster spot as a running back, but there still is a chance he makes it for special teams purposes. However, he appears to have a better of chance of sticking on the practice squad than on the active roster.
The Browns opted to waive running back George Atkinson and add Wilds in a corresponding roster move. The 24-year-old played in four games for the Jets last season, tallying 27 yards on 10 carries in the process. He figures to be a long shot to land on the final roster, but will compete for a role providing depth at running back.
