Conklin has not played since Week 7, but the Browns were hopeful he could return from the injury. After a torn patella tendon was confirmed, it made a return impossible.
He has been a Brown since signing a three-year, $42 million deal with Cleveland in the 2020 offseason. Before 2021, he had only missed one game with the Browns, earning a First Team All-Pro selection in 2020. Conklin was also a former first round selection by the Tennessee Titans, who could not retain him after his rookie contract expired.
Stay tuned for more NFL injury news, including more on Jack Conklin and his eventual return.
