With the unique schedule the Cleveland Browns have this week while practicing at UCLA, we will have to wait a little longer for the official injury report. We know that the focus from most will be on the Browns quarterback position and DE Myles Garrett as injuries linger for both.
No big deal, right? Cleveland is only fighting for their playoff lives to join a rare group to make the playoffs starting three or four quarterbacks in a season.
While we asked you Tuesday if Flacco should start this week no matter what, HC Kevin Stefanski informed the media Wednesday that Flacco is the backup but would start if DTR is unable to play:

Prior to practice, the Browns also provided a list of seven players who would not be practicing due to injury. There may be more that are DNPs on the official report on top of:
- Myles Garrett - Shoulder
- Marquise Goodwin - Concussion
- Kareem Hunt - Groin
- Juan Thornhill - Calf
- Wyatt Teller - Calf
- Dorian Thompson-Robinson - Concussion
- Denzel Ward Shoulder
We will get you the full practice participation report as it becomes available shortly.
