The Browns waived defensive end Marcus Benard from injured reserve today.
Benard dislocated his left elbow Aug. 24 in a preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles and was waived/injured Aug. 27. He then landed on IR with the Browns because no other team claimed him.
Benard, who's pictured above, led the Browns with 7.5 sacks in 2010. He compiled 39 tackles, including 11.5 sacks, in 25 games with the team. Benard spent this past summer fighting for a roster spot after missing most of last season with injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident in October 2011.
The Browns also cut linebacker Benjamin Jacobs from their practice squad today. Last season, he appeared in five games with the team.
