The Cleveland Browns secured a joyous win over the San Francisco 49ers, but bad news did emerge from the victory.

Browns wide receiver Brian Hartline is out for the season with a broken collarbone.

The veteran suffered the injury sometime during the club's big 24-10 win over the Niners. Head coach Mike Pettine announced after the game that Hartline's injury will require season-ending surgery.

Before his injury, Hartline was having a great day. The Ohio State product finished the day with eight receptions for 107 yards.

The 29-year-old wideout ends the season with 46 receptions for 523 yards and two touchdowns.

Hartline expressed appreciation for the outpouring of support after the game.

The loss of Hartline is a tough one for the Browns, considering both Hartline's contributions and the thinness of the depth chart behind him.
