Browns put Tucker on injured reserve

Published 12:16 am Sunday, November 2, 2008

The Cleveland Browns have placed offensive lineman Ryan Tucker on injured reserve for the rest of the season due to a knee injury.

The injury kept Tucker out of the previous two games. He missed the first four games of the season because of a hip injury and only started in one game this season — the Giants’ Oct. 13 win against the New York Giants.

Tucker’s knee will be examined by a doctor next week.

The Browns also signed wide receiver Steve Sanders to the active roster on Saturday.

Sanders, a Cleveland native, played in the team’s first four games, including his NFL debut in the season opener on Sept. 7 against Dallas. He had one reception for 18 yards in the game.
