Another loss for Browns’ ’D’
The Browns’ defense might have taken another jarring hit Monday when rookie safety Grant Delpit was carted off the practice field with a right Achilles injury. He’s the latest Browns player to go down in what has been a tough training camp for the team.
A second-round pick from national champion LSU, Delpit was expected to start. The 6-2, 213-pounder got hurt during individual drills. He pounded his hand on the ground in frustration before being helped onto the cart and taken inside the team’s facility.
The Browns only confirmed Delpit’s injury and said he will undergo further testing. Delpit was penciled in to start alongside Karl Joseph, who was signed as a free agent in the offseason but is nursing a foot injury. The Browns also signed veteran safety Andrew Sendejo.
Not long after Delpit got hurt, starting cornerback Greedy Williams — another former LSU player — left practice with a reported shoulder injury.
The Browns already are missing two potential starters on defense: Mack Wilson (knee) and projected nickel back Kevin Johnson (lacerated liver)
Raiders receiver Tyrell Williams has a torn labrum in his shoulder that he will try to play through this season. A person with knowledge of the injury confirmed that Williams got injured in practice last week. He will try to rehabilitate it over the next few weeks.
Seahawks defensive end Branden Jackson was back at the team facility, two days after he suffered a head injury in a team scrimmage and was taken away in an ambulance.
Shipley in, Brown out
Center A.Q. Shipley is reuniting with Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians, according to ESPN. Shipley played for Arians from 2013 to ’17 with the Cardinals. An 11-year veteran, Shipley helped anchor an offensive line that led the Cardinals to their best rushing season in franchise history in 2019.
The Falcons released veteran offensive lineman Jamon Brown, who started nine games at guard last season after signing a three-year, $18.75 million free-agent contract.
