We're breaking down who played how much in the Browns' 20-13 primetime loss to the Rams on Sunday night.
-- When you count the two starters placed on injured reserve during the week -- TE David Njoku and LB Christian Kirksey -- the Browns were down seven starters Sunday. The number grows to eight when you count WR Rashard Higgins, who typically plays a lot of snaps when he's active. On top of the seven inactive players Sunday, the Browns didn't play two others -- S Sheldrick Redwine (hamstring) and DE Chris Smith (personal). Backup QB Garrett Gilbert also did not see the field.
-- The defense was particularly battered heading into the game, as all four starters in the secondary -- S Damarious Randall, S Morgan Burnett, CB Denzel Ward and CB Greedy Williams -- were among the inactives. As a result, the Browns relied on seven players to play all 66 defensive snaps -- LB Joe Schobert, LB Mack Wilson, S Eric Murray, CB T.J. Carrie, CB Terrance Mitchell, S Juston Burris and S Jermaine Whitehead. A couple points of context: Wilson did not play a single defensive snap in the season opener and Burris was claimed via waivers Friday.
