The original story is below.

The Cleveland Browns secondary took a potentially major hit on Monday when rookie safety Grant Delpit went down with an injury to his Achilles.

The extent of Delpit’s injury is still unknown as he is undergoing additional testing, according to the Browns.

According to cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot, Delpit was injured during an interception drill when he went up for a pass and came down in pain despite not having any contact.

Delpit was Cleveland’s second-round draft choice out of LSU in this year’s draft and was expected to have a big role in defensive coordinator Joe Woods’ system.

There was more bad news for the secondary as second-year cornerback Greedy Williams left practice early with an apparent shoulder injury.

If that wasn’t enough, cornerback M.J. Stewart Jr. injured his hamstring during practice and spent the rest of the day watching from the sidelines. Stewart had been filling in for cornerback Kevin Johnson, who has been out since last Wednesday after suffering a lacerated liver during practice.

Cornerback Terrance Mitchell, who has a knee injury, and safety Karl Joseph, who has a foot injury, also did not practice on Monday.
