Browns to miss Dansby, Sheard | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Browns HC Mike Pettine said Monday that LB Karlos Dansby could miss "upwards of a month" after spraining his left MCL in Sunday's loss to Houston, according to The Plain Dealer. Dansby's absence will hurt IDP lineups, but his absence should mean more playing time for impressive rookie Christian Kirksey. We'll see how that plays out in a lackluster LB matchup with the Falcons this weekend. The Browns D is also expected to miss OLB Jabaal Sheard for the rest of the season because of an unspecified bone injury in his foot. That removes a pair of key pass-rushers from a unit already mediocre in that area.

Browns DT Sheldon Richardson (back) is active for today's game against the Ravens. DE Olivier Vernon (knee) is out once again.

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.

Browns starting CBs Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams are inactive for today's game against the Seahawks. That marks the 4th straight game both players will have missed with hamstring injuries.

Browns CBs Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams are questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks with their hamstring injuries. Both players missed the past 3 contests, but both also returned to limited practices this week. Neither should be in your IDP plans even if active.

Browns CBs Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams will miss their 3rd straight games. Both are dealing with hamstring injuries and have yet to return to practice since going down. S Morgan Burnett is returning, though. He's active after missing the past 2 contests with a quad injury.
