Here is a wrap-up of the injury situation for the Cleveland Browns heading into this week's game against the Denver Broncos:
- The Browns will be without three defensive starters: ILB Craig Robertson, CB Joe Haden, and FS Tashaun Gipson. CB Pierre Desir and S Jordan Poyer are expected to start in the secondary, with ILB Christian Kirksey and ILB Tank Carder continuing their rotation at inside linebacker.
- QB Josh McCown is nursing an ankle injury, but it isn't expected to limit him during the game.
- RB Robert Turbin is expected to make his debut this week. RB Isaiah Crowell has been limited in practice with a toe injury, so it'll be interesting to see how the reps shake out at the position this week.
- The Broncos will be without starting OLB DeMarcus Ware. WR Demaryius Thomas and CB Aqib Talib are battling injuries, but both are expected to play this week. The Browns could be catching yet another break on the offensive line front. LT Ty Sambailo will miss his third straight game, and OG Evan Mathis will be a game-time decision after not practicing all week.
