Cleveland Brown’s right tackle, Jack Conklin, tore the patellas tendon in his right knee and will miss the rest of the season, coach Kevin Stefanski announced Monday.
Tests on Monday confirmed the injury, which occurred in the first quarter of the Browns’ 16-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens Sunday night.
Stefanski said he was “sick” over Conklin’s injury.
“Obviously, Jack is a big part of what we do,” Stefanski said on Monday. “He’s a good man, a good teammate.”
Stefanski would not wonder if Conklin would be back in time for training camp next year.
Conklin went down on the Browns’ second offensive possession. After being helped to the sidelines by the Browns’ training staff and his teammates, he was driven to the locker room.
Conklin had just returned from a dislocated elbow that he suffered in week 8.
He was an All-Pro selection in his first season with Cleveland in 2020 after signing a three-year, $ 42 million contract that included $ 30 million guaranteed.
