Jets LBs Neville Hewitt (neck, knee) and Brandon Copeland (hip) are active for today's game against Washington. Hewitt missed the past 4 games with his injury but should see full-time snaps. Copeland likely returns to a backup role, with James Burgess the expected starter next to Hewitt.
Jets LB Neville Hewitt (neck) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. The team will also miss LB Blake Cashman, who landed on IR this week with a shoulder injury. With those 2 out, plus LBs Avery Williamson and Albert McClellan on IR and C.J. Mosley out at least another month, James Burgess will start against Miami. The Jets also signed LB Zach Brown, who got dumped by the Eagles after their Week 6 loss at Minnesota. We've added Burgess to the Week 9 IDP rankings.
Browns HC Hue Jackson said Monday that MLB Joe Schobert will be "down for a little while" with the hamstring injury that knocked him out of Sunday's loss to the Chargers, according to the team website. James Burgess replaced Schobert in that game but then left with his own hamstring injury and could also miss further time. Jackson said he and his staff would have to discuss the replacement plan behind Schobert and Burgess. OLB Jamie Collins reached a 90% snap share for just the 3rd time in 6 games against the Chargers and becomes more of an IDP starting option with the injuries in the middle.
