The Browns will be down one key starter on defense this Sunday as defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah has been ruled out with an ankle injury. Ogbah’s absence comes following a four-sack performance from the Browns defensive line last week.
Also of note, linebacker Christian Kirksey is listed as questionable after being limited throughout the week of practice with a shoulder and ankle ailment. Making his Browns debut will be cornerback E.J. Gaines who missed last week’s season opener with a knee injury that he suffered in the preseason.
As for the Saints they’ll be missing just one player for Sunday’s contest in starting nose tackle Tyeler Davison.
