Meder re-signed with Cleveland on Thursday.
Meder played in the first ten games of Cleveland's 2017 season, recording 178 snaps and 13 tackles before landing on injured reserve due to a high-ankle sprain. If healthy, the 27-year-old rotational run-stopper should play another limited role in the Browns' 2018 campaign.
The high-ankle sprain Meder suffered in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars was likely to keep him sidelined for at least one game, so the Browns decided to shut down the reserve lineman for good in order to free up a roster spot for a healthy player. Meder finishes the 2017 campaign with 13 tackles across 10 games.
Meder was diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain following his departure in Sunday's 19-7 loss to the Jaguars, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.
The injury sounds like something that could keep Meder out for the Week 12 matchup with the Bengals, if not longer, but further clarity on his status should come later in the week when the Browns resume full practices. A reserve lineman for the Browns, Meder has tallied 13 tackles and no sacks across 10 appearances this season.
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.
