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.

The Packers have activated LB Christian Kirksey. He has been out since Week 3 with a right shoulder injury. Green Bay has had no one settle in as a regular with starter-level playing time at ILB since Kirksey went down. We're treating him as a starter right away for his 1st game back Sunday against Jacksonville. Check out where Kirksey lands in our Week 10 IDP rankings.

The Packers have placed LB Christian Kirksey (pectoral) on IR. That means he'll miss at least the next 3 games, starting with the Monday night Falcons clash we already knew he'd miss. That also should make LB Ty Summers a starter for those 3 games. If he didn't already get claimed off waivers in your IDP league, go ahead and grab him.

ESPN reports that Packers LB Christian Kirksey will miss at least 1 game with the shoulder injury that knocked him out of the win over the Saints Sunday night. The report says that Kirksey will "likely" avoid surgery but that he's awaiting a 2nd opinion. A stint on IR remains a possibility. LB Ty Summers makes for a solid waiver pickup for at least this week, ahead of Monday night's game against the Falcons.

Packers LB Christian Kirksey left in the 1st half of Sunday night's game at New Orleans with a left shoulder injury and was ruled out for the game. Ty Summers stepped in and wore the green dot. If Kirksey misses more time going forward, that could mean a full-time role for Summers -- a 7th-round pick in 2019. We'll watch for updates on Kirksey's status early in the week.

The Packers have reached a 2-year, $16 million deal with LB Christian Kirksey. That's clearly starter money for the former Cleveland Brown. It also makes you wonder whether Green Bay has decided to let veteran ILB Blake Martinez walk in free agency. Martinez figures to command at least as much on the open market -- and likely more. Kirksey should go back to being a solid-to-good IDP LB with the Packers, if he can stay healthy. Injuries limited him to just 9 of a possible 32 games over the past 2 years. We'll see about Martinez.
