The Cleveland Browns will try to pick up a win in 2016 when they take on the Washington Redskins in a Week 4 matchup.
When the Cleveland Browns were given the 2016 schedule, this Week 4 matchup had special meaning for one player.
Robert Griffin III was set to get his revenge against his former team, only to get injured in Week 1 against the Philadelphia Eagles. He will now be watching from the sidelines, his arm in a sling as Cody Kessler gets his second start of his young NFL career.
While Griffin is on IR, there are several others who are inactive for today’s game:
- Josh McCown, QB
- Corey Coleman, WR
- Tramon Williams, DB
- Ibraheim Campbell, DB
- Cameron Erving, OL
- Seth DeValve, TE
- Carl Nassib, DE
The good news from this list is that Joe Haden is not on it, meaning he will be back in the lineup after missing last week’s game.
Erving’s absence at center will be filled by the newly signed Austin Reiter, while John Greco will slide back over to the right guard slot after holding down the center position last week in Miami.
It is tough to predict what the Browns will do any given week, but this game presents a realistic opportunity to pick up a win on the road before Tom Brady and the New England Patriots come to Cleveland next week.
Terrelle Pryor should once again be the focus on offense, but the Redskins will be ready for him after seeing the tape from last week.
As always, we want to keep the conversation going throughout the game. So be sure to comment on this post during today’s game with your thoughts. After two tough losses, hopefully today’s comments will be a bit more positive as the Browns try to finally pick up a win in 2016.
