Browns HC Hue Jackson confirmed Monday that C Austin Reiter does, in fact, have a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the season.
Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Browns C Austin Reiter is believed to have suffered a torn ACL and is headed to injured reserve.
Reiter, 24, is a former seventh-round pick of the Redskins back in May of last year. He was unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason last year but was later signed to the team’s practice squad.
Washington elected to bring Reiter back on a future/reserve contract this past January and he was able to crack the 53-man roster this year. However, the Redskins waived Reiter before adding him to their practice squad a few weeks ago.
The Browns signed him off of the Redskins’ practice squad a week later.
