Browns place D'Qwell Jackson on injured reserve


Posted by Michael David Smith on September 25, 2010 8:08 PM ET

The Cleveland Browns have announced that linebacker D'Qwell Jackson has been placed on injured reserve, meaning his season is over.


Jackson suffered a pectoral injury in August and had missed the first two games of the season, but he was said to be making progress, so the news comes as a surprise. Jackson missed most of last season with an injury to his other pectoral muscle.


The Browns have filled Jackson's place on the 53-man roster by signing wide receiver Sam Aiken. Last year Aiken caught 20 passes for 326 yards for the Patriots, but he was released after the preseason this year.


The Browns also announced that receiver Brian Robiskie (hamstring) and defensive lineman Shaun Rogers (ankle, hip) will miss Sunday's game and receiver Joshua Cribbs (ankle) has been downgraded to questionable.

Browns lose linebacker D’Qwell Jackson

Return to Original ShareretweetEmailPrintCLEVELAND (AP)—This was supposed to be D’Qwell Jackson’s(notes) comeback season. It’s over already.


In a somewhat surprising move, the Browns placed the linebacker on injured reserve Saturday because of a right chest muscle injury—the same kind that ended Jackson’s 2009 season with 10 games left.


Jackson, who led the NFL in tackles in 2008, had just returned to practice this week from a partially torn chest muscle sustained in training camp on Aug. 10. He practiced Wednesday and felt fine, but after practice on Thursday, he felt tightness and fatigue in his pectoral muscle.


On Friday, Jackson, who had hoped to play Sunday in Baltimore, said he and the team’s training staff were being cautious and shutting him down. He expected to practice again next week and was sure he would be able to play again this season.


But the Browns decided to put him on IR for the second straight year, a blow to one of their steadiest players who turns 27 on Sunday. Jackson is in the final year of his contract and he had been hoping to work out a long-term deal with Cleveland, or impress other teams to sign him as a free agent.


Now, after two major injuries in two years, his career is in jeopardy.


Jackson missed Cleveland’s final 10 games in 2009 after tearing his left pectoral muscle and needing surgery.


The Browns replaced Jackson on their roster with Sam Aiken(notes), a veteran wide receiver released by New England earlier this month.


Aiken may need to get ready quickly for the Ravens after the Browns announced that wide receiver Brian Robiskie(notes) will miss Sunday’s game with a hamstring injury and that receiver/kick returner Joshua Cribbs(notes) is questionable with an ankle injury.


Robiskie pulled up during practice on Thursday and Cribbs got hurt on Friday.


The Browns also said nose tackle Shaun Rogers(notes) will sit out with a leg injury.

The Brown missile Carlton Mitchell will be unleashed on the baltimore ravens sunday

Its unfortunate the missle is still raw and untested...in pre-season i recall him being easily nudged off his route, but its not like the ratbirds aren't going to know who the intended targets are and even the routes they will be running on any particular play...

This is starting to look pretty scary, injury-wise. Now it's looking like two of our best players (Rogers, Cribbs) will miss today's game against the Ravens. It's hard to see how we can overcome such significant losses.


Seems like this happens every friggin' year...
