Neck injury ends Fujita's rocky season

CLEVELAND - Former New Orleans Saints and current Browns linebacker Scott Fujita will be placed on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his stormy season.

Fujita, one four players suspended by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for his role in the New Orleans Saints' bounty scandal, was inactive the past two games.

He last started on Oct. 7 in a game against the New York Giants.

Browns coach Pat Shurmur does not know if Fujita, an 11-year veteran and one of the league's most informed players, will retire.

The 33-year-old Fujita had neck surgery in college.

Fujita had his three-game suspension reduced to one by Goodell.

However, Fujita was angered by a letter he received from the commissioner and harshly criticized Goodell for his handling of the Saints' situation and questioned his track record on player safety.
