Browns C Austin Reiter Done For Year

Browns center Austin Reiter is believed to have suffered a torn ACL, as Mary Kay Cabot of tweets. He will be placed on IR. Austin Reiter (vertical)

Reiter played well in his first career start at center but, unfortunately, his season is already over. The Browns plucked Reiter from the Redskins’ practice squad late last month, giving them some depth after losing starter Cameron Erving for an extended period of time. Now, they’ll be without Erving until his bruised lung is better and they’ll be without Reiter for the season.

When Reiter went down on Sunday, the Browns moved guard John Greco to the middle and used rookie Spencer Drango at right guard. They could go with that O-Line makeup going forward, but it stands to reason that they will also add a lineman to the 53-man roster.

The banged up Browns are now 0-4 heading into this Sunday’s game against the Patriots.
