The Cleveland Browns will be without a few prominent players for this afternoon’s matchup against the Indianapolis Colts.

The Cleveland Browns are in Indianapolis this afternoon as road favorites, which is quite the rare sight.

DeShone Kizer is looking to improve after throwing three interceptions a week ago, while the defense is trying to take advantage of a Colts offense with Jacoby Brissett under center.

The Browns will do this without a few key players, as seen in today’s inactive list.

Myles Garrett remains out, although his return to the practice field this week means we may see him at home next week against the Cincinnati Bengals. But the team must be careful to only let him play if he is fully healthy.

Jamie Collins is the other prominent player out today, as he is dealing with a concussion suffered last Sunday. He hasn’t made a major impact this year, but his leadership will be missed. Maybe this is the week Joe Schobert takes over as the leader of the defense.

As always, use this post’s comments section to discuss today’s game with other Browns fans. Hopefully the conversation is a positive one, as the Browns should be able to win this game.

It is early in the season but this game is a must-win. A victory today gives the Browns a great chance to rattle off a few wins in a row as the Bengals and Jets are coming to town in the following weeks, but a loss today would start the rumblings of Hue Jackson being on the hot seat.
