Browns put Lewis on IR, waive Norwood

The SportsXchange

The Cleveland Browns on Monday placed running back Dion Lewis on season-ending injured reserve after Lewis had surgery last week to repair a fractured fibula.

Lewis had a firm hold on being the backup to Trent Richardson before being injured on Aug. 15. The Browns acquired Lewis from Philadelphia, where he averaged 4.75 yards per carry the past two seasons.

The Browns also waived wide receiver Jordan Norwood, who had spent the past three seasons with the Browns.

Defensive back Vernon Kearney, defensive lineman Dave Kruger, wide receiver Cordell Roberson and linebacker Tommy Smith also were waived.
