Report: OL Ryan Tucker Released by the Browns; Pool, Harrison, Hadnot Return

UPDATE (9/1/09): Since this posting, it was learned that Ryan Tucker was placed on the Injured Reserve by the Browns. Either way, his career in Cleveland and the NFL could be finished.

First Rod Hood, now Ryan Tucker. ESPN Cleveland is reporting that the Browns have released veteran offensive lineman Ryan Tucker. It was revealed earlier today that Tucker had his knee scoped last Wednesday. Tucker was under contract for the veteran minimum.

I wish Tucker could have come back and made an impact the way he could when he was at his best, but the wear and tear on his body over the years was apparently too much. It almost feels like a Gary Baxter situation -- no matter how hard they try to return to full strength, it just isn't going to work.

In positive news, three key players returned to practice today for the Browns:

Harrison was wearing a brace on his left knee. You have to love the "hush hush" regarding injuries around Berea:

Strange, but true. Minutes before practice today, Browns RB Jerome Harrison said he "didn't have a clue" when he'd be back on the field for practice. He practiced today. Players are well-versed at being mum about injuries under coach Eric Mangini.
