BEREA, Ohio: Browns safety Grant Delpit was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, joining a lengthy list of significant Cleveland players who have sustained major injuries this season.

Delpit injured his groin on Sunday against Jacksonville, one day before he signed a three-year, $36 million contract extension. Delpit sacked the Jaguars’ Trevor Lawrence for a 13-yard loss before getting hurt.

He’ll miss the final four regular-season games for the Browns (8-5), who are currently in the No. 5 playoff spot in the AFC. It’s not yet known if Delpit will have a chance to return if the Browns make the postseason.

The 25-year-old Delpit was having his best NFL season, leading the team with 77 tackles and anchoring Cleveland’s solid secondary. Delpit, who was drafted in the second round in 2020, also has an interception and fumble recovery.

The Browns have been hit hard by injuries since training camp.

Just this week, they lost starting tackles Jedrick Wills Jr. and Dawand Jones for the rest of the season. Wills had knee surgery on Tuesday and Jones is scheduled to have a procedure after injuring his knee in practice last week.

Cleveland is also missing quarterback Deshaun Watson (shoulder), running back Nick Chubb (knee), tackle Jack Conklin (knee), safety Rodney McLeod (biceps) and defensive tackle Maurice Hurst (pectoral).
