Injury Notes

  • Four players have been ruled out for the Browns: OT Chris Hubbard, LB Mack Wilson, CB Kevin Johnson, and CB Greedy Williams.
  • The cornerback position is the position most impacted by injury this week. With Williams out, veteran Terrance Mitchell is expected to start in his place (although that’s not necessarily a bad thing; everyone here knows how much I like Mitchell). Johnson, the team’s nickelback, remains out. M.J. Stewart Jr. would normally take his place, but he is questionable as he comes off of a hamstring injury. If Stewart can’t play, specialist Tavierre Thomas would likely fill in. It is worth noting that wide receivers typically do not see a lot of action in Baltimore’s offense.
  • The other big injury-related news for Cleveland is that C JC Tretter is listed as questionable, as opposed to being ruled out. Given how much he has gutted through in the past, I expect Tretter to suit up. If he can’t play, though, then rookie Nick Harris would get the call. Backup offensive tackle Chris Hubbard is also out.
  • The Ravens will be without third rookie DT Justin Madubuike, who has a knee injury. Backup RB Justice Hill and WR Chris Moore are also out, but neither player was likely to receive much action anyway.
