Browns center Nick Harris will likely need season-ending surgery after injuring his right knee during the Browns’ preseason win against the Jaguars on Friday, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski.
Harris, who is entering his third NFL season, injured his knee on the second play of the game when he faced a bull rush from the Jaguars and his knee buckled underneath him. He went down in pain and was carted off the field.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Harris plans to get a second opinion to confirm his diagnosis. Harris was expected to be Cleveland’s starting center after the departure of longtime center JC Tretter.
If Harris’s injury keeps him out for the season, veteran center Ethan Pocic would likely move up to the starting spot as he currently sits No. 2 on Cleveland’s depth chart.
