Browns vs. Panthers injury report Week 1: O-Line could be thin in opener

The Cleveland Browns start the 2022 season the same way as 2021, with a loaded injury report. And in Week 1, they could be thin at offensive tackle

Some things never change. For whatever reason, the Cleveland Browns continue to have one of the deepest and most extensive injury reports in the league. But at least there’s some good news with their Week 1 report to go with the bad.

First, the bad. Greedy Williams was placed on the IR. That means he will miss at least four games after already missing 21 games in his first two seasons. Also, Michael Woods II was downgraded to out as he deals with a hamstring injury.

As for the good, Woods is the only one who is officially listed as out on the Browns injury report (since Williams is technically on the IR). Unfortunately, the list is still crowded and two of the players listed as questionable happen to be starting right tackle Jack Conklin and their best reserve Chris Hubbard.

Conklin is still trying to get back to full health after a patellar tendon injury ended his 2021 campaign. Hubbard is dealing with an elbow injury and has played in just 12 games the past two seasons due in large part to injuries.

If both miss the game, James Hudson will get the call and he struggled when relied upon last year. There are others listed that are concerning, including Grant Delpit, Ronnie Harrison, and Jadeveon Clowney who have all had issues with durability in their respective careers.

For the Carolina Panthers, things look much better. They have just one player, Brandon Smith, on their report since running back Christian McCaffrey was removed.

Check out the full report for both teams below.
