Browns place LB Kirksey, CB Gaines on IR

Updated: 07-11-2018 21:49 IST

The Cleveland Browns placed linebacker Christian Kirksey and defensive back E.J. Gaines on injured reserve, leaving the defense shorthanded entering Week 10.

Kirksey injured his hamstring in the second half of Sunday's game against the Chiefs and has had multiple injuries this season. Gaines sustained his second concussion in less than a month. The Browns are also likely to be without rookie cornerback Denzel Ward, who was injured Sunday.

Cleveland signed Juston Burris to the 53-man roster off the Jets' practice squad. Burris was a fourth-round pick in 2016.

Kirksey was starting in place of leading tackler Joe Schobert.
