The Browns’ receiving corps sustained a setback. Second-year wideout Michael Woods suffered a torn Achilles during an independent workout.

The injury occurred during a recent workout with Deshaun Watson in Texas, per CBS Sports’ Josina Anderson, who initially reported the team feared this significant injury. This will threaten to end Woods’ season months before it would have begun, though it occurring at this juncture of the offseason opens the door to a return later in the year. Watson has been hosting teammates for workouts near his home in Houston, Cabot adds.

The Browns drafted Woods in the sixth round last year. The 6-foot-1 target saw action on 23% of Cleveland’s offensive snaps, logging 155 as a rookie. He was on the field for 36% of the Browns’ special teams plays. Woods caught five passes for 45 yards during his first NFL season. While he would have been ticketed for a backup role again next season, Cabot adds the Browns were pleased with his progress thus far. This certainly represents a blow to the Day 3 draftee’s development.
