In addition to Dawand Jones, the Cleveland Browns have added Jedrick Wills’ name to their long list of season-ending injuries, and let’s hope he’s the last one.

It looks like both the team and Wills had hoped that his knee would heal on its own after his knee scope earlier in the season, but it unfortunately didn’t. They felt like surgery was the next best option and according to the team’s Head Physician James Voos, MD, he had a successful knee procedure done this morning at University Hospitals Drusinksy SMI.

This news more than likely means that Geron Christian will remain the starter at left tackle for the remainder of the season. There’s also a good chance that the team will add another offensive lineman to the practice squad if the Browns choose to elevate Justin Murray or Alex Leatherwood to the active roster for depth reasons.
