CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Browns backup safety Judson Flint is out of action indefinitely with a broken right ankle.
A team spokesman said Flint suffered the injury during practice Wednesday.
Flint, 26, a fourth-year man from Farrell, Pa., was drafted in the seventh round in 1979 by the New England Patriots. He missed his rookie year because of a knee injury and was the last man waived by New England in 1980.
Flint has never started for the Browns, but played in all 38 games since Cleveland picked him up in 1980.
