CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns have taken another hit at linebacker after Montrel Meander suffered an ankle injury during Sunday's preseason game against the New York Giants.

Meander was ruled out after being carted off at the end of the thrid quarter.

The team announced Meander suffered an ankle injury.

Meander was cut from the roster in the first round of roster cuts last week but was signed back to the team on Friday after linebacker Jordan Phillips sustained a biceps tendon injury, making it likely he misses the season.

The Browns also signed linebacker Willie Harvey Jr. Friday to add depth to a depleted position on the roster.
