Per Ian Rapoport, it has been confirmed that the Browns' WR and return specialist Jakeem Grant has officially torn his Achilles and is out for the season. (Ian Rapoport )
After earning his second straight All-Pro honor and a Pro Bowl nod as a punt returner in 2021, reports were positive coming out of the Browns’ training camp thus far for Grant, who seemed to be making a push for more snaps as a pass-catcher while also being their go-to return man on special teams. Unfortunately, the recent news of a confirmed torn Achilles will bring his season to an end. The six-year veteran was the only player listed as a punt returner and kick returner on Monday when the Browns released their first unofficial depth chart. Demetric Felton is among the top candidates to replace Grant in those roles but Cleveland will undoubtedly be impacted by his loss, especially in the return game.
