Achilles Browns tear likely for Jackim Grant


The Cleveland Browns are expecting the worst when it comes to their free agent wide receiver and returner Jackiem Grant. Grant was injured during practice on Tuesday and struggled to get on the car to get off the field.

Grant was attached to the Chicago Bears as a free agent. Grant began his career with the Miami Dolphins for more than five years. In both places, he was primarily used as a returner with six career touchdowns on special teams.

As a receiver, Grant has caught 100 passes for 1,140 yards.

Cleveland signed a three-year, $10 million deal to help them revive their special teams with the prospect of a threat out of the slot as well. As expected when he went down, Brown believes the injury is serious:

In general, on-field testing for an Achilles injury is generally reliable and further imaging confirms the tear.

While Cam Akers returned for the Los Angeles Rams tore his Achilles in late July, his return came in late December. It’s possible that Cleveland could hope the same for Grant, but that would require putting him on the initial 53-man roster before placing him on injured reserve as he did LB Jacob Phillips last year.

Brown would now look elsewhere to address return issues, which he hoped Grant would take care of.
