Browns place WR Massaquoi on IR
The Cleveland Browns have placed wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi
on injured reserve and elevated quarterback Thad Lewis from the
practice squad to the active roster.
Massaquoi started five games this season, possibly his last with
Cleveland. His contract expires in March and the former
second-round pick (No. 50 overall in 2009) may not be part of the
team’s future plans. He finished with 17 catches for 245 yards this
season. He’s made 118 catches for 1,736 yards and seven touchdowns
Massaquoi did not play Sunday in Denver because of a knee
Although Browns coach Pat Shurmur has not ruled out starting
rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden from this week’s game in
Pittsburgh with a right shoulder sprain, the club promoted Lewis,
who could be Colt McCoy’s backup if Weeden sits for the finale.
