Grant had to be carted off the field during Tuesday's practice after suffering the injury in the drill. A source said the team is awaiting imaging to confirm the Achilles tear. The Browns signed Grant to a three-year deal this offseason to be their kick and punt returner; Grant, however, was also having a standout training camp as a receiver out of the slot, as well.

If Grant is out, the Browns will likely turn to Demetric Felton to return punts and kicks for them.
