Injuries have been a major struggle for the Cleveland Browns during the 2022 season. This issue is most apparent on defense, where several starters and key pieces have missed multiple games already this year.

However, Cleveland has received some good news on the injury front after its Week 9 bye.

EDGE Chase Winovich was one of two players designated to return from the injured reserve list on Monday. This officially opens his 21-day practice window and puts him one step closer to getting back on field.

Winovich was acquired via trade from the New England Patriots this past offseason. He played in the Browns' first two games, but then popped up on the injury report with a hamstring issue. The former third-round pick then landed on IR, missing the team's last six contests.

Hopefully Winovich is able to finally move past this injury, which limited him in 2021 and flared up again in training camp before sidlining him again this season. When healthy, he could provide a serious threat off the edge, as evidenced by the 5.5 sacks he posted in back-to-back seasons to begin his career.
