BEREA, Ohio — It’s been an up-and-down season for Browns rookie quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson, and now it might be over.
He injured his hip in Sunday’s 36-22 win over the Bears and was placed on injured reserve for a minimum of four games on Tuesday. He walked across the locker room on a crutch and stopped in front of his locker for a minute.
“My hip is damaged,” he told cleveland.com. “Waiting to hear the results.”
He said he wasn’t sure which play it happened on, but added, “I feel good right now.” He rushed for minus-5 yards once and had a two-point conversion after a 21-yard catch from David Njoku that extended the Browns’ lead to 22-7.
Morally speaking, Thompson-Robinson was depressed at not being able to help the team in this crucial period over the next four weeks.
“I hope to go back soon,” he said.
To replace him, the Browns signed PJ Walker to the active roster from the practice squad. He went 1-1 for the Browns this season and came off the bench in the first quarter of the 39-38 win over the Colts to earn this huge victory.
Walker will back up Joe Flacco in Thursday night’s game against the Jets at Cleveland Browns Stadium and can handle some of the same spot duties as Thompson-Robinson during the game, including the occasional RPO or two-point run or pass.
“We will see in terms of role, but we are very confident in PJ,” Stefanski said. “He started games for us, won games for us, came in and won games for us. He knows our system, so very confident.
