Olivier Vernon Fantasy Football News 2019

The Browns have ruled DE Olivier Vernon (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Vernon already missed multiple games with the injury.

Browns DE Olivier Vernon (knee) is active for today's game against the Steelers. He missed the past 3 games and returns to a lackluster sack matchup. But Vernon's OK for IDP consideration. Cleveland also made the surprising move of making FS Damarious Randall a healthy scratch. Randall reportedly didn't even travel with the team. Scott Petrak of BrownsZone.com writes that "it's likely a disciplinary measure." Juston Burris and Sheldrick Redwine will likely start at safety against the Steelers. Neither is a strong IDP option.

Vernon figures to jump back into our top 20 D-linemen for 2019.
