An­other loss for Browns’ ’D’

Chicago Sun-Times - - SPORTS -

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)

More in­juries

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.
