Report: Browns fear torn Achilles for Takkarist McKinley
Cleveland pass rusher Takkarist McKinley is feared to have torn his Achilles during the Browns’ Monday game against the Las Vegas Raiders, according to NFL Network.
McKinley was scheduled to undergo an MRI exam Tuesday morning to confirm the extent of the injury.
The fifth-year veteran was carted off the field after going down in the third quarter. He grabbed toward his ankle before the team’s medical staff arrived to attend to him.
McKinley, 26, entered the game with 2 1/2 sacks and a forced fumble in 10 games (one start) with the Browns. He is in his first season in Cleveland after spending four seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, who drafted him in the first round (No. 26 overall) out of UCLA in 2017.
