More bad news for the Browns' defensive line...

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

It seems like the Browns can't catch a break on the defensive line. The Browns announced that John Hughes will be placed on short-term IR with a knee injury he suffered Sunday against the Raiders.

Given that Hughes was placed on injured reserve - designated for return, he won't be able to return for eight weeks. That means that he'll be eligible to return for the season finale in Baltimore.

The Browns have been decimated by injuries on the defensive line, so this news is certainly not good. Hughes had recently been playing well.

To fill the vacant roster spot, TE Ryan Taylor was claimed off waivers from Baltimore. Taylor is in his 4th season after being drafted in the 7th round by the Packers in 2011. He has 8 career receptions for 45 yards, and a touchdown through 50 games.
