The Cleveland Browns lost more than a game Sunday, as they will also be without one of their younger defensive stars for an extended period of time.
Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski announced Monday that rookie linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah will miss multiple weeks with a high ankle sprain.
#Browns coach Kevin Stefanski describes RB Kareem Hunt’s calf injury as significant and confirms he’ll miss weeks. He says LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah is out weeks, too, with what I’m told is a high-ankle sprain. Those are generally 4-6 weeks.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 18, 2021
The timetable for Owusu-Koramoah’s recovery means he will most likely miss Cleveland’s Week 8 matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Selected in the second round of April’s draft out of Notre Dame, Owusu-Koramoah has made an immediate impact on Cleveland’s defense.
The rookie has recorded 29 total tackles, four passes defended, a forced fumble, a tackle-for-loss and half a sack.
