Browns place LB Kirksey, CB Gaines on IR


The Cleveland Browns placed linebacker Christian Kirksey and defensive back E.J. Gaines on injured reserve, leaving the defense short-handed 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 could also be without rookie cornerback Denzel Ward, who was injured Sunday and did not practice Wednesday, but interim coach Gregg Williams said Ward should practice Thursday.

The Browns have already been missing Pro Bowl linebacker Joe Schobert for nearly a month due to a hamstring injury.

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

Later Wednesday, Cleveland claimed defensive backs Phillip Gaines (from the Buffalo Bills) and Jermaine Whitehead (from the Green Bay Packers) off waivers, waiving defensive back Denzel Rice to make room on the roster.

Phillip Gaines (unrelated to E.J. Gaines) had started six games for Buffalo before his release. Whitehead was waived on Tuesday, two days after being ejected from Sunday night's loss to the New England Patriots.
