The Cleveland Browns are 2-2 coming out of the earliest bye week possible in the NFL. The Browns defense looked great for three games before falling apart, along with the rest of the team, in Week 4. The offense sputtered without RB Nick Chubb except for a Week 3 performance that made fans excited about what could be.
Fortunately for Cleveland, the bye week came at a perfect time to, hopefully, ensure that QB Deshaun Watson only misses one game due to a shoulder issue. Major injuries to OL Jack Conklin and Chubb have had significant impacts on the team.
With some changes to the roster, coming out of the bye week is a perfect time to take a look at the Browns 53-man roster and practice squads.
