BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns placed linebacker Scott Fujita and cornerback Eric Wright on injured reserve Tuesday.

Fujita has been out since November 14 when he strained a left knee ligament against the New York Jets. Signed as a free agent in March, he finished his ninth season in the NFL with 51 tackles, 3 1/2 sacks and an interception.

Wright hurt his left knee this past Sunday in the 19-17 loss at Cincinnati. He began the season as a starter, but lost that job to rookie Joe Haden after getting beat for several touchdowns. He totaled 42 tackles and an interception along with nine passes defensed in his fourth season.

To fill the roster spots, the Browns signed nose tackle Travis Ivey off the practice squad and free agent linebacker Steve Octavien.

Also, the team signed fullback Tyler Clutts to the practice squad.
