Browns placed DE Emmanuel Stephens on injured reserve, ending his season.
Stephens never returned to the game last week after sustaining a neck injury in the first half. A rotational end, Stephens had been the Browns' most productive per-play pass rusher this season. They need Jabaal Sheard to step up in the second half. Tue, Oct 30, 2012 06:39:00 PM

Browns DC Dick Jauron suggested RE Emmanuel Stephens (I.R., pectoral) could return as the incumbent starter in 2012.

"I was so happy with Emmanuel, and how hard he plays," Jauron said. The Browns also want to bring back 33-year-old OLB Scott Fujita, who Jauron says is the "definition of a pro" and "clearly a guy that takes care of himself."

Browns placed RE Emmanuel Stephens (pectoral) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Stephens recorded 17 tackles in 11 games after being claimed off waivers from the Falcons in September. Jayme Mitchell will likely move back into the starting lineup if he can return from his ankle injury this week. Already a dream matchup for opposing running backs, the Browns are down two key starters heading into a matchup with Ray Rice.

Browns RE Emmanuel Stephens will miss "significant time" after straining his pectoral in Sunday's loss.

Any time someone is slated to miss "significant time," they're a good bet to be placed on injured reserve this late in the year. Jayme Mitchell should fill in at right end against the Ravens provided he's over his ankle injury. Stephens replaced Mitchell as the Browns' starting right end in Week 11.

Browns RE Emmanuel Stephens left Sunday's game against the Bengals with a strained pectoral muscle.

The Browns have benched RE Jayme Mitchell in favor of Emmanuel Stephens going forward.

Mitchell got out of the gates hot with 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble in the Browns' first three games, but he's been a non-factor ever since. At 6-foot-3, 255, Stephens more fits the profile of a weak-side rusher than Mitchell (6'6/285). Stephens, however, doesn't have a sack on the year. The Browns will need to find another edge pass rusher in the offseason.

Browns claimed DE Emmanuel Stephens off waivers from the Falcons.

Quick off the edge, Stephens impressed Falcons observers in practices last season and preseason action this year. He could be used as a rotational end in Dick Jauron's 4-3 scheme.
