Mosley becomes fifth Browns defender placed on injured reserve

BEREA, Ohio -- Cleveland Browns defensive lineman C.J. Mosley is done for the season with a leg injury.

Mosley got hurt in the first quarter of Sunday's loss to San Diego. The team placed Mosley on injured reserve, the fifth Cleveland defensive player to go on IR.

Browns coach Eric Mangini did not specify Mosley's injury, but said the 26-year-old will likely have surgery. Mosley left the stadium on crutches and told some teammates he broke his ankle.

Mosley, who played for Mangini with the New York Jets, was expected to get more playing time with Kenyon Coleman nursing a knee injury and nose tackle Shaun Rogers out with a season-ending injury. Mosley started for Coleman against the Chargers.
