Hope you’ve studied up on back of the roster players for tonight

When the Cleveland Browns faced the New York Jets in the Hall of Fame game, the team had just 53 of their 90-man roster active. Last week against the Washington Commanders, a much larger contingent of players were on the field for the Browns.

For the team’s third preseason game, technically Week 2 of the NFL’s preseason schedule, we are back to not seeing a ton of players against the Philadelphia Eagles. Overly simplified, your favorite Cleveland player is probably not on the field tonight:

  • CB Greg Newsome II
  • S Juan Thornhill
  • WR Amari Cooper
  • QB Deshaun Watson
  • LB Anthony Walker Jr.
  • LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah
  • WR Elijah Moore
  • WR Jakeem Grant Sr.
  • WR Donovan Peoples-Jones
  • WR Mike Woods II
  • WR Jaelon Darden
  • WR Marquise Goodwin
  • CB Denzel Ward
  • S Grant Delpit
  • CB Martin Emerson Jr.
  • RB Nick Chubb
  • S Rodney McLeod
  • RB Jerome Ford
  • CB A.J. Green III
  • LB Matthew Adams
  • LB Sione Takitaki
  • DE Ogbo Okoronkwo
  • C Ethan Pocic
  • DE Isaiah Thomas
  • G Drew Forbes
  • T Jedrick Wills Jr.
  • G Joel Bitonio
  • G Wyatt Teller
  • T Jack Conklin
  • TE Jordan Akins
  • TE David Njoku
  • TE Harrison Bryant
  • DE Alex Wright
  • DT Dalvin Tomlinson
  • DE Myles Garrett
  • DE Za’Darius Smith

We are uncertain why the team released the names in the order that they did. It is not alphabetical, not grouped by positions and not organized by starters and backups.

Either way, DTs Jordan Elliott and Shelby Harris are two of the potential starters that could see the field. Otherwise, a good chance for rookies and bubble players to make a name for themselves including a few we noted today that we are looking forward to.

We do not have any information on who will play from the Eagles at this point.

Also, don’t forget to join our game thread to talk all about tonight’s contest with your fellow fans.

What do you think about the Browns decision to sit all those players?
