Vernon (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Vernon suffered a ruptured Achilles in the Week 17 win over the Steelers, thus ending his 2020 campaign. The 30-year-old finished his ninth NFL season with 36 tackles, nine sacks -- his highest total for a season since 2013 -- and three pass breakups. With the injury occurring in the season finale, it's unclear if Vernon, who will be a free agent in March, will be ready for the 2021 season.
