The Cleveland Browns will face off with the Cincinnati Bengals today off the shores of Lake Erie. Injuries are generally the biggest concerns going into games but early season tends toward more healthy teams.
Going into today’s game, once CB Denzel Ward was cleared from concussion protocol, the biggest concern for the Browns was safety Juan Thornhill. For the Bengals, DE Joseph Ossai topped the list.
Today’s inactive reports are now out:
- S Juan Thornhill
- CB Kahlef Hailassie
- C Luke Wypler
- DE Isaiah McGuire
- DT Siaki Ika
Thornhill being out is the big name but it is also interesting to see all the rookies that make up the last three names. Rodney McLeod will start in his place
- DE Joseph Ossai
- RB Chase Brown
- CB DJ Ivey
- OL Jackson Carman
- OL Trey Hill
Cincinnati also misses out on their top concern on the defensive line. The Bengals have depth on their defensive line but missing Ossai will test that today.
