Browns vs. Bengals: Inactives, live game thread
The Cleveland Browns seek their first win of the season today against the Cincinnati Bengals in an AFC North matchup.
While the Cleveland sporting world is preparing for a crazy Tuesday, the Browns are still seeking a single win in 2016.
The Browns are in Cincinnati today to continue that quest against a 2-4 Bengals team. The Bengals have destroyed the Browns in the last few matchups, but that was with an entirely different Cleveland roster. So even though this team is 0-6, they may have a solid shot at defeating the inner-state rival.
The Browns will try to do so without a key player in the lineup, as Joe Haden will miss today’s game with a groin injury. He joins this week’s list of inactives.
Haden’s constant injury issues bring up the question of his value to this young team, but he has proven to be a reliable player and leader, so it may be too early to think of his name coming up in any potential trade situations. Plus, he would need to be healthy for a team to offer up fair value in a trade.
The good news is that Terrelle Pryor will indeed be active for today’s game after dealing with some hamstring problems. His absence may have derailed any hopes of success on offense, so it is nice to see he is able to go.
Pryor may join A.J. Green in having a huge day, as Green will surely light up the Browns’ secondary. Hopefully, Pryor can return the favor.
