It is over before it even started.
The Browns have announced that they have placed ILB D'Qwell Jackson on season ending Injured Reserve. They have filled his roster spot by signing Sam Aiken who was last seen playing for the New England Patriots.
Last we heard was that DQ had a setback in his rehab and was planning on giving it some rest. Apparently it was much more severe than originally thought. This puts DQ's future with the Browns in major peril. An ILB that has missed a season and a half due to the same injury, albeit different sides, can't be counted on as a major cog in a defense. He is a free agent after this season, after signing his one year restricted free agent tender before this year.
This move means that someone in the middle is going to have to step up. With Maiavia and DQ now on IR, the Browns ILB depth is quickly drying up.
