Carder entered concussion protocol Monday, ESPN's Tony Grossi reports.

EDGE Analysis

Carder, a reserve linebacker, didn't log a single snap on defense Sunday against the Jets, but was on the field for the majority of special teams action. It's unclear when he sustained the concussion, though. However, he is now subject to the NFL's concussion protocol and is questionable to play in Week 9.

Browns GM Tom Heckert confirmed Tank Carder is "in the mix" for the Week 1 strongside linebacker job.

Fourth-round pick James-Michael Johnson (oblique) is questionable for the season opener, and without a timetable for return. The Browns will also be without Scott Fujita (suspension) for the first three games. Carder will be given an extended look with Craig Robertson and L.J. Fort the only current options on the active roster. Chris Gocong (Achilles) is out for the year, and expected to be placed on injured reserve.

Browns claimed LB Tank Carder off waivers from the Bills.

Cleveland is a perfect landing spot for a fifth-round pick who was a mild surprise in Friday's cuts, as injury has decimated the Browns' linebacker corps. The majority of Carder's snaps should come on special teams, but it's possible he'll get some looks on defense, at least until James-Michael Johnson (oblique) is healthy.

The Bills believe No. 147 pick ILB Tank Carder plays "a lot faster" than his 4.69 Combine 40 indicates.

"He is an instinctive player. He is smart and he has played inside and out. He closes very fast," said Bills scout Shawn Heinlen. "He plays a lot faster than he times." Heinlen also believes Carder has "great" coverage skills even though he's been billed primarily as a run-stuffer. It's unlikely Carder will be asked to do more than stop the run as a rookie.
