The Browns have ruled S Karl Joseph (hamstring) and S Ronnie Harrison (concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. That should leave Sheldrick Redwine starting next to Andrew Sendejo at the back of Cleveland's secondary. Pittsburgh has shortened its passing game early this season vs. the past couple of years, but Cleveland's safety situation could motivate some deeper shots this Sunday. Either way, it's certainly not bad news for Ben Roethlisberger, TE Eric Ebron and deep-threat WRs Chase Claypool and James Washington.
Browns rookie S Grant Delpit suffered a torn Achilles' tendon Monday and will miss the season, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. That had been the fear, and MRI confirmed the injury. Sheldrick Redwine looks like the next guy up, but we'll keep an eye on the replacement plan. S Karl Joseph, meanwhile, gets a boost in tackle upside.
Update: Scott Petrak of the Chronicle-Telegram reports that Andrew Sendejo is getting the 1st shot at replacing Delpit. We'll see whether the Browns sign another competitor.
