The Cleveland Browns have announced that they have placed WR Miles Austin on season-ending injured reserve.
On Wednesday Browns head coach Mike Pettine announced Austin suffered a kidney injury against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday and was still recovering.
“Miles sustained a kidney injury in Buffalo and remains in the hospital,” Mike Pettine said in a statement from the team. “Our thoughts are with him and we wish him a speedy recovery. Miles is a guy who embodies what ‘Play like a Brown’ means and instills that in our receiving corps.”
Austin has 47 catches, 568 yards and two touchdowns in this 2014 season, his first with the Browns. Austin spent the first eight years of his career with the Dallas Cowboys, recording a total of 150 catches over the 2009 and 2010 seasons before hamstring injuries spoiled his last three seasons.
