Browns coach Romeo Crennel said both veterans have some loose cartilage that will be repaired.
"It's usually 3-4 weeks (recovery time) on those scopes, and then we'll move on," Crennel said.
"It gives some younger people more opportunities," Crennel said. "Nat Dorsey and Jon Dunn will get more reps than they would (at right tackle) if Tucker was here.
"Same thing in the defensive backfield - (Daven) Holly will get more reps. Antonio Perkins will get more reps."
