Cleveland Browns Player News: All Positions

News: Ward (hamstring), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, isn't expected to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Impact: The likely absence of the Browns' top cornerback comes at an unfortunate time with Cleveland facing a Rams passing attack that has often proven prolific during Sean McVay's tenure as head coach. With fellow cornerback Greedy Williams (hamstring) also listed as questionable, TJ Carrie and Terrance Mitchell are preparing to slot into the starting lineup if both Ward and Williams are sidelined.
News: Kirksey (chest) has been placed on IR.
Impact: In a corresponding move, the Browns promoted fellow linebacker Willie Harvey from their practice squad. It remains to be seen if Kirksey might be a candidate to return to action later this season, with that possibility likely tied to whether or not he needs surgery to address what may be a torn pectoral muscle. In the coming weeks, Mack Wilson is in line to fill Kirksey's spot in the team's starting lineup.
News: Kirksey (chest) is a candidate to be placed on IR, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Impact: Per Cabot, the linebacker may have suffered a torn pec, an injury that would require an extended recovery. If that's the case, this will mark the second season in a row that Kirksey will be derailed by an injury. After playing all 16 games in each of his first four NFL campaigns, the 27-year-old was limited to seven games in 2018. Going forward, Mack Wilson is expected to move into Kirksey's starting spot, while linebacker depth will be added by the promotion of Willie Harvey from the team's practice squad.
News: The Browns will promote Harvey from their practice squad to the team's 53-man roster,Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Impact: With Christian Kirksey dealing with a torn biceps, Harvey, who went undrafted out of Iowa State, will provide the Browns with some added linebacker depth heading into Sunday night's game against the Rams.
