Dorian Thompson-Robinson sees rookie NFL season come to a close with injury
Dorian Thompson-Robinson has been placed on season-ending injured reserve by the Cleveland Browns.
The Browns announced the news on Tuesday. Thompson-Robinson is dealing with a hip injury sustained late in Sunday’s win over the Houston Texans. The fifth-round pick from UCLA appeared in eight games with three starts during his rookie season, completing 60 of his 112 passes for 440 yards with one touchdown and four interceptions.
After a strong career in Westwood, Thompson-Robinson quickly grabbed headlines in the NFL preseason by leading a come-from-behind 21-16 win over the New York Jets in the Hall of Fame game.
He opened the regular season as the backup behind Deshaun Watson. DTR made his first career start in Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens when Watson was a late scratch. He re-entered the lineup in Week 11 when Cleveland faced Pittsburgh, led a 13-10 win, and then was concussed a week later against the Denver Broncos.
Joe Flacco has started the last four games.
Thompson-Robinson signed a four-year, $4.18 million contract with the Browns in May of this year.
