CLEVELAND (AP) -Cleveland Browns wide receiver Joe Jurevicius will miss the first six weeks of the regular season while he recovers from knee surgery.
The Browns placed Jurevicius on the physically-unable-to-perform list Tuesday.
Jurevicius had swelling and discomfort in his right knee related to a previous operation and needed another procedure in June to further clean it out.
After the sixth week of the season, the Browns have three weeks to allow Jurevicius to start practicing. Once he begins practicing, the Browns will have another three weeks to make a decision on his roster status.
Jurevicius had 50 catches for 614 yards and three touchdowns last season.
