Scott Fujita placed on IR
CLEVELAND -- Browns starting linebacker Scott Fujita has been placed on injured reserve, his season ended by a broken hand.
The team put Fujita on injured reserve Tuesday, two days after he broke his right hand in two places during the second half at Cincinnati. Fujita will undergo surgery later this week. He started 10 games for Cleveland this season, missing one with a concussion.
The Browns also placed defensive end Emmanuel Stephens on injured reserve with an injured chest muscle. Stephens got hurt on Sunday against the Bengals in his third straight start since replacing Jayme Mitchell at right end.
Linebacker Benjamin Jacobs and defensive lineman Brian Sanford have been signed to the active roster from the practice squad.
