LB - CLE
Week 14 Outlook
Per Adam Schefter, the Browns have placed LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah on injured reserve with an ankle injury.
After hurting his ankle during the Week 6 game against the Cardinals, the Browns placed their rookie LB on injured reserve. A big loss for a defense that is ranking in the bottom-half of the league in points allowed per game.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Browns have placed LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
The Browns selected LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah with the 52nd overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft. He played college football at Notre Dame, where he won the Butkus Award and was named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year and a unanimous All-American as a senior in 2020. He is expected to make an immediate impact for the Browns’ DST.
The Cleveland Browns have selected LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah with the No. 52 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Trading up with the Carolina Panthers to get to the No. 52 overall pick, the Cleveland Browns targeted Notre Dame LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah as the latest addition to their strong defensive unit. He's a twitchy hybrid linebacker-safety, allowing the Browns to drop him into coverage or rush him off the edge to rack up TFLs. The energetic and passionate Owusu-Koramoah is the second defensive selection for Cleveland in the draft, bringing intensity and making receivers and backs hesitant to cross the middle of the field on a route. The winner of the 2020 Butkus Award finished his senior season with 62 tackles, 11 TFLs, and three forced fumbles to wreak havoc all over the gridiron at the collegiate level. His skillset and motor will provide the spark needed to engage tight ends and big-bodied wideouts operating out of the slot.
