Cleveland Browns tight end Ricky Seals-Jones caught a pass on angle route against the Denver Broncos during their final drive of the first half. Baker Mayfield hit him on a pass that went for six yards on the last offensive play of the half, but a Broncos safety went low, taking him out at the knees for the tackle. Seals-Jones was evaluated, got up and walked off under his own power.
The Browns finished the drive with a field goal and they went to the half. Seals-Jones initially came out for the second half, but at least for the moment, has gone back in to the locker room. The press box has announced that Seals-Jones has been ruled out for the rest of the game with that knee.
That means the Browns will only have two tight ends left for the rest of the game in Demetrius Harris and Stephen Carlson. Neither really brings anything resembling the dynamic that Seals-Jones does.
Harris is more of a blocker, who has been decent the last six quarters catching passes while Carlson is being utilized largely as a fullback. He was only signed to the active roster this week in place of Pharaoh Brown. This will likely force the Browns to utilize more receivers.
