The Cleveland Browns placed starting right tackle Jack Conklin on injured reserve Saturday with a dislocated elbow.

Conklin will miss at least three games, including Sunday’s contest at Cincinnati.

The Browns (4-4) also activated fullback Andy Janovich and center Nick Harris from IR ahead of the AFC North clash with the Bengals (5-3).

Conklin, 27, was injured during last Sunday’s 15-10 setback to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has started six games this season and 78 in his career with the Tennessee Titans (2016-19) and Browns. The 2016 first-round pick was an All-Pro first team selection in 2016 and 2020.

Janovich, 28, landed on IR with a hamstring injury on Oct. 12. He has played in five games this season and scored a rushing touchdown in a Week 2 win against the Houston Texans.

Harris, 22, went on IR with a hamstring injury on Oct. 5. He has appeared in four games as a reserve this season.

Cleveland also elevated defensive tackle Sheldon Day and tight end Miller Forristall to the active roster from the practice squad.
