Monday Morning Snap Counts: Who played how much in New Orleans

Breaking down who played how much in Sunday's loss to the Saints…

— Browns linebackers Jamie Collins and Joe Schobert played 66 of 66 defensive snaps. Schobert, the third-year player, has played every snap thus far this season. 

— On the other side of the ball, quarterback Tyrod Taylor and Cleveland's starting offensive line played 62 of 62 offensive snaps. 

— Making his first regular-season start, rookie receiver Antonio Callaway played 50 snaps (81 percent) and caught three passes for 81 yards and a touchdown. The fourth-round pick out of Florida replaced Josh Gordon, whom the team will part ways with Monday. 

— With veteran linebacker and captain Christian Kirksey (shoulder/ankle) sidelined, James Burgess played 40 snaps (61 percent). He finished with three tackles. 

— One week after playing 84 of 84 snaps, Myles Garrett played all but one defensive snap (65 of 66) in New Orleans. 

— Guarding Saints star receiver Michael Thomas for much of the afternoon, rookie cornerback Denzel Ward hardly came off the field, playing 64 snaps. 

— After playing one defensive snap against the Steelers, cornerback T.J. Carrie made the most of an increased role against New Orleans, recording eight tackles, one sack and a tackle-for-loss in 35 snaps. His teammate, defensive back Briean Boddy-Calhoun, played five snaps after 62 the week before. 

— With Emmanuel Ogbah (ankle) out, Chris Smith played 38 snaps in his first career start. He finished with four tackles.

— Second-year defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi had perhaps the best game of his career, recording two sacks (and a third that wiped out because of a penalty) in 58 snaps. 

— Cornerback Terrance Mitchell played 53 snaps and forced two fumbles in the process, bringing Cleveland's takeaway total to eight this season. 

— Rookie Austin Corbett, the 33rd overall pick who was inactive last week, made his regular-season debut and played four snaps in the team's jumbo package.
