Two offensive starters for the Colts and Browns are out due to injury.

Two offensive starters for the Colts and Browns are out due to injury.

Prior to their game against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, the Indianapolis Colts ruled out starting offensive linemen Braden Smith and Kylen Granson.

The Indianapolis Colts needed to complete their last full practice day on Friday in order to be ready for this weekend’s AFC matchup against the visiting Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Outside receiver Alec Pierce, the starting quarterback for the Colts, continued to put in more plays than tight end Kylen Granson and right tackle Braden Smith, who were both sidelined by injuries.

On their injury report, the Browns saw a number of encouraging developments.


OCT. 31.

TE Kylen Granson (concussion), WR Alec Pierce (shoulder), OT Braden Smith (hip/wrist), and CB Tony Brown (back) were not in action.


OT Braden Smith (hip/wrist) and TE Kylen Granson (concussion) did not play.

WR Alec Pierce (shoulder) is a limited participant.

Tony Brown, the CB, is a full participant.


DT DeForest Buckner (rest), TE Kylen Granson (concussion), C Ryan Kelly (rest), and OT Braden Smith (hip/wrist) were the ones who did not play.

Participating in full: Alec Pierce, wide receiver; Tony Brown, cornerback (back).

WR Alec Pierce is a questionable player.

OPTIONAL: OT Braden Smith, TE Kylen Granson.

Granson’s absence means that we’ll likely see more of Drew Ogletree and Will Mallory, and Mo Alie-Cox might stick to the part he played in the first few weeks.
Isaiah McKenzie, Amari Rodgers, and/or Juwann Winfree may see increased playing time outside if Pierce is unable to suit up.



TE Harrison Bryant (hip), WR Amari Cooper (rest/ankle), DE Myles Garrett (rest), K Dustin Hopkins (personal), RB Kareem Hunt (thigh), CB Greg Newsome (hamstring), DT Dalvin Tomlinson (rest), LB Anthony Walker (concussion), and QB Deshaun Watson (shoulder) did not participate of the game.

Some key players have put in more work than usual for the Browns during practice this week.
On Friday, head coach Kevin Stefanski informed the media that they will wait to decide whether Watson, Bryant, and Newsome will play on Sunday in order to observe how they react to the additional reps over the course of the next week.

It had been a few weeks since Watson had last visited the practice field.
Bitonio returned to the game after missing the previous week.
