The Cleveland Browns have been riddled with injuries on defense for much of 2022.
Now, they get back a key member of the defensive line.
Jadeveon Clowney returned to practice today after missing last game in concussion protocol.

Despite the good news on Clowney, he has not had the year that many had hoped for when the Browns re-signed him last year.
He had a very effective game against the Bengals in week 14 (one of the best games of his career), but his overall season totals have been disappointing.
With only 2 sacks on the season, he has not had the impact that he or the Browns expected after registering 9 sacks in 2021.
Last year, Clowney turned down better offers that included multi-year deals to re-sign with the Browns.
With a potential offseason change at defensive coordinator coming and a disappointing year, it will interesting to see if the feelings are mutual on a return.
