The Cleveland Browns preseason slate of games kicked off tonight just after 7 PM in Jacksonville. The Browns won the coin toss and chose to take the kickoff first, getting QB Deshaun Watson on the field quickly.
The first two plays were incomplete passes but new starting center Nick Harris getting hurt on the second play was far worse. While blocking, Harris was bull rushed and attempted to reestablish his base when it looked like his knee buckled.
Harris went down grabbing his leg immediately and the cart was brought onto the field to transport him to the locker room.
With the Browns releasing veteran J.C. Tretter, Harris was set to start at center this year after being a fifth-round draft pick in 2020.
Ethan Pocic replaced Harris at the position after the injury.
We will keep you up to date on the extent of the injury as soon as information becomes available.
