Browns repeat Week 15 for Week 16: Elevate 2 defenders versus Texans

Browns roster needs lead to Tanner McCalister, Charlie Thomas III being elevated

NFL: Chicago Bears at Cleveland Browns Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

The news this week that LB Anthony Walker underwent knee surgery was just another injury-hit for the Cleveland Browns in 2023. The Browns also ruled out safety Juan Thornhill, LB Jordan Kunaszyk and DE Ogbo Okoronkwo for Week 16 versus the Houston Texans.

The Texans had a few really important players ruled out on Friday and have three others listed as questionable for Sunday’s game.

Cleveland is listed as a favorite going on the road despite struggling away from home this season. A lot of question marks going into this week which could make some interesting prop bet decisions.

As they did last week, the Browns are elevating safety Tanner McCalister and LB Charlie Thomas III.

In Week 15, McCalister played in 18 snaps on special teams while Thomas was in for 10, also on special teams. Neither recorded a statistic last week.

Both McCalister and Thomas have been elevated three times, including this week, the maximum allowed each season.
