The Browns are ready to welcome back one of their top tacklers and rookie playmakers from Injured Reserve.
The team designated rookie LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah to return from IR on Wednesday after a three-game absence. Owusu-Koramoah, a 2021 second-round pick, suffered an ankle sprain in the fourth quarter Week 6 against the Cardinals. He will return to practice, and the Browns will evaluate him this week before determining whether he'll return to game action Week 10 in New England.
"'JOK' will do some work today," coach Kevin Stefanski said. "We'll see how he does to make a determination as to whether he'll be available to us."
Owusu-Koramoah was among the Browns' leading tacklers before his injury with 29 tackles and one tackle for a loss. He also registered four pass breakups, one forced fumble and a half-sack and saw a significant uptick in snaps before his injury. He played in over 85 percent of defensive snaps in his last two games after hovering between 30 and 50 percent in the first four games.
