Browns designate LB Jacob Phillips for return

Cleveland's 2nd-year linebacker has been sidelined since training camp


The Cleveland Browns have designated LB Jacob Phillips for return from injured reserve. In addition, the team placed TE Stephen Carlson on reserve/COVID-19.

Phillips, a third-round pick in 2020, appeared in nine games last season and recorded 24 tackles. He was placed on injured reserve with a biceps injury on Sept. 1.

*A player on injured reserve is allowed to return after missing only three games, and teams may return an unlimited number of players from injured reserve throughout the year.
