Meder (ankle) won't return to Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.
The out designation could signal a long-term injury for Meder, and he'll have one week to recover before Week 12's matchup with the Bengals. Expect more updates on this injury when the Browns resume practice on Wednesday. Larry Ogunjobi will fill in for the time being.
Meder hurt his ankle during Sunday's game against the Jaguars and is questionable to return, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.
Meder plays sparingly on the Browns' defensive front, so his absence won't shake up their scheme too much. Rookie Larry Ogunjobi will pick up Meder's reserve snaps until he can return.
Meder became a regular starter at defensive end for the Browns, recording 48 tackles, one sack and one pass defensed over 16 games (15 starts) last season. The 25-year-old blocked a field goal attempt during the fourth quarter of Week 16's matchup with the Chargers, helping to secure the Browns lone victory on the year and earning him AFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors.
Meder was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday.
Meder seemingly injured his thigh during Sunday's matchup against the Bengals, a game in which he posted three tackles. If he's unable to against the Bills, Xavier Cooper would be in line for more snaps.
