Peek was running down the field in practice, planted and tore his right patellar tendon. He will have surgery today.
"He had the feeling that it was something major," Crennel said of Peek. "He was disappointed."
To replace Peek, Cleveland signed linebacker Shantee Orr, who was cut by the Browns last week. Orr already knows the defense after spending the entire summer with the team.
The Browns open the 2008 season with a high-profile matchup this week against the Dallas Cowboys.
"In this business guys get hurt," Crennel said Thursday. "But guys understand we have to move forward because we have a game to play on Sunday."
