Cleveland Browns linebacker D’Qwell Jackson will miss the rest of the season because of a shoulder injury.
Cleveland placed its leading tackler on injured reserve Tuesday, two days after he damaged his shoulder during the first half of a 27-14 loss at Pittsburgh.
“It’s disappointing any time you lose a player for the season, and this is especially true with someone like D’Qwell, who has proven to be an outstanding leader for us both on and off the field,” Browns coach Eric Mangini said in a statement.
Jackson got hurt in the second quarter on Sunday. He faces possible surgery.
Though undersized at 6-foot, 240 pounds, Jackson has been one of Cleveland’s best defenders over the past three-plus seasons.
Jackson led the NFL with 188 tackles last season and was chosen as a Pro Bowl alternate.
He is eligible for free agency after this season. The loss of Jackson is another blow for the Browns. Will Eric Mangini still be head coach when the 2010 season rolls around?
