CLEVELAND (WAFB) - Former LSU safety Grant Delpit, a second round pick of the Cleveland Browns, tore his Achilles during practice on Monday, August 24, the team has confirmed.

The Browns added Delpit will undergo surgery and is expected to miss the entire season.

Delpit was reportedly lying on his stomach in pain after the non-contact injury, pounding the ground before trainers were able to move him and he had to be carted off the field.

The rookie, who is originally from New Orleans, was selected No. 44 overall by the Browns in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Delpit played in 40 games for the Tigers, starting 37 of them. He finished his collegiate career with 199 tackles (120 solo), 17.5 tackles for loss, 7.0 sacks, eight interceptions, 32 passes defended, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries.

Former LSU cornerback Greedy Williams was also hurt during practice. He needed to be attended to by trainers because of a shoulder injury. He eventually left the field with them. Williams missed the first four games last season because of a hamstring injury.
