Below Joe Thomas Jersey , we analyze the snap counts and stats on defense for the Cleveland Browns’ Week 9 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.Defensive LinePosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsMyles Garrett’s lone sack puts him at 9 for the season, keeping him on pace for 16. With the exception of Emmanuel Ogbah’s tipped pass that nearly stayed up for an interception, though, the line was not impactful for most of the afternoon.Per PFF, Garrett was the only member of the Browns to record multiple pressures with five (one sack Chris Hubbard Color Rush Jersey , two hits, two hurries).LinebackerPosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsJamie Collins led the Browns in tackles, but his lack of effort on so many plays is astounding. I think back to that very first game (or half) when Cleveland acquired him, and how good he was. I haven’t seen it since. He either has a big-time motivational problem or was a flash in the pan.Christian Kirksey’s early injury forced Tanner Vallejo into action. On a day where the Browns couldn’t tackle anyone, Vallejo had a stretch in which he made three very sound tackles.CornerbackPosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsHow rotten of luck was is for E.J. Gaines and Denzel Ward to both be lost for the game after 8 plays? Cleveland’s attempt to try man coverage went out the window after that. Not that Cleveland would’ve stopped Kansas City’s offense anyway https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Seth-Devalve-Jersey , but you never know — maybe they would’ve gotten one or two stops to allow them to compete better in a shootout.Denzel Rice logged a cheap interception at the sideline to end the first half. But it kept the Browns’ turnover streak alive.SafetyPosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsWe saw a season-high workload for both Jabrill Peppers and Derrick Kindred, due to the absence of Damarious Randall and then the early injuries to the cornerbacks (which forced Briean Boddy-Calhoun to corner instead of free safety).If you thought the Browns were helpless in coverage, there was one player who got a good coverage grade: SS Derrick Kindred. PFF says Kindred “allowed zero catches on one target (39.6 passer rating allowed) while in coverage on 31 snaps, adding six combined tackles and one run stop.” CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns placed starting cornerback Terrance Mitchell on injured reserve with a broken right wrist.Mitchell got hurt in the second quarter of Sunday’s 45-42 loss at Oakland. He underwent surgery on Monday, when coach Hue Jackson said he didn’t think Mitchell’s injury was season-ending. The team can designate two players to return from injured reserve after six weeks.Mitchell broke his wrist while breaking up a pass intended for Jordy Nelson. Following the play Kevin Zeitler Jersey , Mitchell grabbed his arm and immediately went to the sideline.To replace Mitchell, the Browns signed Jeremiah McKinnon from their practice squad. McKinnon is in his first NFL season out of Florida International. He was originally signed by Dallas in 2016.Mitchell, who signed with Cleveland as unrestricted free agent earlier this year, had 19 tackles and one interception in four starts.Jackson said either E.J. Gaines or T.J. Carrie will replace Mitchell as a starter.
