Browns LB Sione Takitaki suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's win over the Texans. Cleveland on Wednesday placed him on IR and signed veteran LB Reggie Ragland. Tony Fields and Deion Jones worked 3rd and 4th among Cleveland LBs at Houston, trailing Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah and Takitaki. JOK looks like the only 1 worth considering for IDP lineups right now.

Browns LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah put in full practices all week and is off the final injury report for Sunday's game against the Bills. He missed the past 2 games with a knee injury but intimated this week that he felt ready to return last week against the Dolphins. LB playing time has varied in Cleveland this season, so it's tough to know who will stay on the field most among JOK, Sione Takitaki and Deion Jones. There's decent tackle upside to any, but the Buffalo matchup has been negative for LB scoring overall. That plus the playing-time uncertainty should have you leaning elsewhere in many close IDP lineup decisions.

Browns LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. His playing time had already been shaky, so this shouldn't carry too much IDP impact. It does solidify Deion Jones and Sione Takitaki as the team's top 2 LBs for the game. See where they stand in our Week 10 IDP rankings.

Browns LB Mack Wilson won't need surgery on his hyperextended left knee, according to multiple reports. He's expected to be ready some time this season, but the Browns expect to miss the starting LB for at least another month. Wilson's absence looks like it'll mean more playing time for LBs Sione Takitaki and Jacob Phillips. Each carries 3-down potential in a fairly shallow defense that has dealt with injuries at every level.

Browns LB Mack Wilson suffered a "significant" hyperextension of his left knee in practice Tuesday, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Cleveland.com reports that Wilson doesn't yet know whether he'll need surgery, but he tweeted Wednesday like a guy who expects to be out a while: "A lot of emotions running through my head rn ... 5ive1 will be back and better with an even bigger chip on my shoulder I promise you." We'll see about the specifics on Wilson's condition. For now, though, you shouldn't be drafting him in IDP leagues. Cleveland faces a muddle at LB now, with rookie Jacob Phillips, 2nd-year man Sione Takitaki and free-agent addition B.J. Goodson among the leading options for playing time.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that LB Joe Schobert has agreed to a 5-year deal with the Jaguars worth $53.75 million, including $22.5 million guaranteed. That should position Schobert as the MLB starter in a Jacksonville defense with new questions in the LB corps. Does Myles Jack slide out from the middle to start on the weak side in 2020? Will Telvin Smith return from his 2019 personal-life hiatus? And if so, where will he play? We'll see about those. What we can count on is Schobert heading into 2020 with the group's strongest IDP outlook. Back in Cleveland, meanwhile, 2019 rookies Mack Wilson and Sione Takitaki appear to have clear lanes to starting gigs, with Schobert and Christian Kirksey gone. We'll see if the Browns add anyone else at the position.
