Cleveland Browns injury report has one big-name out for Week 9
Entering their Week 9 game against the Denver Broncos, the Cleveland Browns are relatively healthy, although one big-name does show up on the injury report
With a record of 2-5, the Cleveland Browns are needing a win to turn their season around. They head to Denver to look for that win as they face the Broncos, a team they beat in Week 15 last season.
This season will be different as the Broncos are turning to a new quarterback in Brandon Allen due to a neck injury to Joe Flacco — who also wasn’t part of the Denver roster last season when these two met.
As for the Browns, they come into this one relatively healthy, although they will be without one of their better players on defense as defensive back Damarious Randall will miss this game.

According to the team’s official website, Randall will be out with a hamstring injury which will be his fourth missed game of the season. For Randall, the injury is concerning as he’s in the final year of his contract and surely wants a new deal.
However, the Browns seem hesitant to lock him up and the young defender has yet to play a full 16 game season. He came close in 2018 when he played 15 games but he missed nine in his first three seasons with Green Bay.
The starting free safety will be joined on the inactive list by safety/corner Eric Murray, who is out with a knee injury, and tight end Pharaoh Brown who is dealing with concussion symptoms.
In addition to the three players who won’t suit up, reserve tackle Kendall Lamm enters the weekend with the questionable tag as he also has a knee issue.
Denver not only ruled out Flacco but also cornerback Bryce Callahan, foot injury, tight end Jeff Heuerman, knee injury, tackle Ja’Wuan James, also a knee problem, and safety Will Parks, with a hand injury, will all miss the game.
They also listed defensive end DeMarcus Walker as questionable with a shoulder problem — all per Pro Football Talk.
