BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Cleveland Browns linebacker Antwan Peek has
suffered a season-ending knee injury.
Coach Romeo Crennel said Thursday that Peek ruptured his right
patellar tendon while running during Wednesday's workout.
It's a big setback for a Cleveland defense which ranked 30th
overall last year and must face the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
The club will re-sign Shantee Orr, who was waived last week, to
fill Peek's roster spot.
Crennel said Orr will likely see playing time Sunday along with
rookie Alex Hall, a seventh-round pick who had an impressive
training camp and exhibition season.
Peek was signed as an unrestricted free agent in 2007 after
spending four seasons with Houston.
