Jakeem Grant Sr. Lands On Injured Reserve

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jakeem Grant Sr. (knee) landed on the injured reserve list on Sunday and will miss the 2023-24 campaign. The 30-year-old, who also missed all last season with an Achilles injury, suffered a ruptured patellar tendon during the preseason finale against the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday. Although he wasn't expected to be a viable fantasy option as a wideout, his effectiveness as a return man isn't good for the Browns special teams unit this season.

Jakeem Grant Suffers Broken Patella

Cleveland Browns returner Jakeem Grant (knee) likely suffered a broken patella during Week 3 of the preseason, according to Mary Kay Cabot of Head coach Kevin Stefanski added that he hopes Grant's patella is not torn. An MRI will be conducted Sunday to confirm the diagnosis. Nevertheless, it's an unfortunate development for the Browns and their talented 30-year-old special teamer, especially after he missed all of 2022 with a torn Achilles. Grant has never been a major contributor in the passing game, but his value as a returner is tremendous. In his absence, Donovan Peoples-Jones and Jerome Ford (hamstring) would likely handle punt and kick returns, respectively.

Jakeem Grant Sr. Injured On Saturday

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jakeem Grant Sr. (knee) exited Saturday's preseason finale against the Kansas City Chiefs. The 30-year-old, who missed all last season with an Achilles injury, suffered a knee injury in this one. Even worse, he was taken off the field on a cart, which isn't a promising sign. Grant isn't expected to be a direct fantasy asset this season. However, his success as a return man over the years makes him a valuable commodity for the Browns special teams unit. There should be an update on Grant's condition soon.

Jakeem Grant Sr. To Return Kicks On Saturday

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jakeem Grant Sr. (Achilles) will return punts and kicks during the team's preseason finale against Kansas City on Saturday. The returner injured his Achilles last training camp and hasn't seen game action since. Signs have pointed to Grant opening the season as the lead return man. He is often taking the first-team reps during those drills. The 30-year-old has six return touchdowns in his career but he can be ignored in almost all fantasy leagues.
