Browns’ Jackson has surgery

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Cleveland Browns linebacker D’Qwell Jackson has undergone surgery in New York to repair his injured shoulder.

Jackson’s agent, Brian Mackler, said the Browns’ leading tackler, is expected to make a full recovery in 12 weeks. The operation took place at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York and was performed by Dr. Frank Cordasco.

Jackson got hurt defending a pass in the first half of Sunday’s 27-14 loss at Pittsburgh.

The Browns placed him on injured reserve Tuesday. Coach Eric Mangini said Jackson intends to remain involved with the team.

“D’Qwell’s such a good guy. Even though he’s not playing the field, he’ll be very active in meetings,” Mangini said. “He’ll work with the young guys. He’ll work with whoever. That’s who he is.”
