Sunday Snap Counts: Injuries on defense force young Browns into major action

A closer look at who played how much in Sunday's loss to the Packers.

-- Joe Schobert and Christian Kirksey played all 76 defensive snaps. Neither linebacker has missed a snap this season.

-- The Browns defense was without three of its regular starters/contributors Sunday -- Briean Boddy-Calhoun, Jabrill Peppers and Danny Shelton. That's on top of the two starters -- Emmanuel Ogbah and Jamie Collins Sr. -- who are on injured reserve. In light of their absences, undrafted rookie Kai Nacua saw the biggest increase in playing time, logging 75 of a possible 76 snaps at free safety.

-- Some other players who saw the field more than usual: DB Mike Jordan (36), Trevon Coley (62), Larry Ogunjobi (46) and Caleb Brantley (16).

-- Josh Gordon was on the field for 53 of Cleveland's 58 offensive snaps. Corey Coleman played 39, Rashard Higgins played 28 and Ricardo Louis was used four times. Sammie Coates played on special teams but not offense in his first game back from an injury.

-- Isaiah Crowell, who finished with a season-high 121 yards, played 62 percent of the offensive snaps. Duke Johnson was on the field for 43 percent of them.
