" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Browns are concerned Delpit suffered an Achilles injury.
A two-time All-American in college, Delpit was the 2019 Jim Thorpe Award winner as he helped LSU win the national title.
Before going down, Delpit was aiming for a starting role at free safety. Now, the Browns await word on if his season is over before it started.
During training camp, the Browns have been rocked by injuries. Cornerback Kevin Johnson suffered a lacerated liver during a recent practice and had to be hospitalized, while linebacker Mack Wilson is expected to miss time with a knee injury.
Those are just two examples. Second-year cornerback Greedy Williams was banged up after Delpit went down, and the Browns' full injury list is shocking to look at.
We'll see if we get any updates on Delpit's condition this afternoon.
Update: Delpit is officially done for the year. He tore his Achilles today.
Just absolutely brutal news for Delpit and the Browns.
