The Cleveland Browns will be without the NFL's current interception leader for their push toward the playoffs.
Safety Tashaun Gipson suffered a Grade 3 MCL injury Sunday, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source who has spoken to the player.
The safety avoided any ACL damage. He could return for the playoffs, if the team makes it to January and keeps his active, per Rapoport.
Losing Gipson is a big blow to a Browns secondary that was playing better the past few weeks after struggling to open the season. Cleveland (7-4) ranks ninth in the NFL, allowing 232 passing yards per game.
Gipson had six interceptions and eight passes defensed to go along with 52 tackles on the season. Pro Football Focus ranked him as their No. 3 safety on the season.
