Lewis to IR, career likely over

NFL.com - [Full Article]

The Cleveland Browns placed running back Jamal Lewis on injured reserve Wednesday with what the team called post-concussion symptoms, ending his season and most likely his NFL career.

Joining Lewis on IR was starting safety Brodney Pool, who sustained at least his fourth known concussion during Sunday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

"After consulting with our medical team, we felt that this was in the best interests of both Jamal and Brodney at this time," Browns coach Eric Mangini said in a statement released by the team. "As I've said before, organizationally, players' health and safety are paramount in any decision we make with regards to putting them back on the field."
