The Browns have placed LB Christian Kirksey on IR because of the hamstring injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. That ends his season and could leave the Browns without 2 of their starting LBs for the Week 10 clash with Atlanta. MLB Joe Schobert has missed the past 3 games with his own hamstring injury. We'll see if he can make it back to the field this week, but he has yet to even practice since suffering the injury. Jamie Collins should be a safe bet for full playing time the rest of the way. Kirksey started at Schobert's middle spot against K.C., with rookie Genard Avery on the weak side. Avery looks like a good bet for more than 50% playing time the rest of the way now and could stick in the 60-75% range -- especially if Schobert remains out. Tanner Vallejo replaced Kirksey after last Sunday's injury and would likely enter the Week 10 lineup if Schobert sits again. Avery's worth a pickup in many IDP leagues this week, bringing pass-rushing upside to go with his recent playing-time upswing.

Browns LB Christian Kirksey left Sunday's loss to the Chiefs with a hamstring injury and did not return. That's a new injury for a guy who missed 2 games earlier this season while dealing with shoulder and ankle issues. Cleveland has also been without MLB Joe Schobert since Week 6. We'll see about the status of Kirksey and Schobert for Sunday's matchup with the Falcons. A Week 11 bye waits on the other side.

Browns LB Christian Kirksey is officially questionable for Sunday’s game against the Ravens as he battles the flu. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reports that the team expects him to play, however. Plan to have Kirksey in your IDP lineups

Browns LB Christian Kirksey is expected to miss his 2nd straight game. He's doubtful for Thursday night's matchup with the Jets because of shoulder and ankle injuries. James Burgess started in Kirksey's place in Week 2 and played 62% of the snaps, which isn't a trustworthy level for IDP usage. Jamie Collins, however, stayed on the field for every snap in Kirksey's absence after playing just 61% of the snaps in Week 1. He's usable in moderately deep IDP leagues with Kirksey out. Cleveland will also miss DE Emmanuel Ogbah again. He's out for the 2nd straight game with an ankle injury.

The Browns have rule LB Christian Kirksey out for Sunday's game in New Orleans. Kirksey's dealing with shoulder and ankle injuries but managed limited practices all week. We'll see about his status heading into Week 3. Cleveland could use James Burgess or Tanner Vallejo in his place. Vallejo is listed as Kirksey's backup, but Burgess has filled in at multiple LB spots for injured starters in the past. Neither will be worth much of a look in IDP leagues. Kirksey's worth holding in redraft leagues of moderate depth.
