The injury is concerning for the Browns offense going forward. The Tennessee Titans 2016 first-round pick made the All-Pro team twice in his NFL career.
After investing in him to protect Deshaun Watson, Conklin’s injury is untimely for the Browns. He signed a $60 million extension in December.
The Browns will ask rookie Dawand Jones to step up and replace Conklin this season. Jones was taken by the Browns in the fourth round of April’s draft. He played for Ohio State last season.
