It looks like Cleveland Browns center Nick Harris will be out for the year after injuring his knee in Friday night’s preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Head coach Kevin Stefanski spoke to the media on Saturday and said it was “likely” Harris would need season-ending knee surgery, although the team would get a second opinion before proceeding. take a decision.
Harris’ right knee appeared to give way on the second play of the game. He tried to put weight on it, but couldn’t and had to be carried. He had an MRI on Saturday morning.

As for who could replace Harris, it could be a familiar face. JC Tretter was released by the Browns in March, and Harris, who was a fifth-round pick in the 2020 draft, took his place. Considering Tretter hasn’t signed with another team and remains a free agent, bringing him back into the fold might be the easiest option since he spent five seasons with the Browns and already knows the crew.
