BEREA, Ohio (WKBN) – Cleveland Browns defensive ends Alex Wright and Isaiah Thomas both underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on Tuesday.

According to a release from the Browns, the injuries will require several weeks of rehab and a full recovery is expected early in the season.

“Injuries are our least favorite part about this game,” Stefanski said. “Those guys will both be back, but they’re going to have to deal with these injuries, and we’ll support them as they do.”

Wright was a third-round draft pick of the Browns in 2022, while Thomas was selected in the seventh-round last year.

Wright, a 2022 third-round draft pick, played in all 17 games as a rookie and amassed 28 tackles and two tackles for a loss. Thomas, a 2022 seventh-round selection, recorded one sack, nine tackles and two pass breakups in 10 games.

Due to these injuries, the Browns signed defensive end Charles Wiley on Monday morning.
