The Browns today placed S Tashaun Gipson on Injured Reserve due to a knee injury suffered during the fourth quarter of last month's game against the Atlanta Falcons. Gipson, enjoying a breakthrough season in 2014, is the currently tied for the NFL interception lead, despite missing three weeks due to the injury.
To replace Gipson, the Browns have elevated LB Scott Solomon off the practice squad. Solomon, who will wear number 54, has bounced around the league after being drafted by Tennessee in the seventh round in 2011. In addition to the Titans, Solomon has appeared in games for the Jets and Bucs, registering ten tackles and one sack over 20 games.
