Catching up on the Browns' injuries
Cleveland Browns offensive tackle Jedrick Wills Jr. (71) takes the field before an NFL football game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Thursday, Sept. 22, 2022, in Cleveland, Ohio.
The first injury report came out as the Browns prepare for the Commanders, and ten names appeared on it. Most of the names were players who did not practice, but two names stood out. First, defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is back after missing last week with a concussion. The second name that stood out is left tackle Jedrick Wills, who missed Wednesday’s practice with a back injury. You can see the full list here.
On Washington’s report, they were missing five players from practice including former Ohio State Buckeye Chase Young and running back Antonio Gibson. Starting defensive backs Kam Curl and Benjamin St-Juste were limited, and running back Brian Robinson practiced in full.

The first big news that came down from the Commanders was that they are turning the keys to the car back over to quarterback Carson Wentz as they prepare to take on the Browns. The Browns had great success against Wentz in 2020 and will be looking to repeat that performance in Week 17 as they look for their seventh win of the season.
Then, another NFC quarterback made news in Cleveland as Aaron Rodgers declared himself a Browns fan this week. The Packers need the Commanders to lose so they can enter a win-and-in situation in Week 18. Signing off of his weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers made his allegiance known, closing with a solid “Go Browns.”

Up and down from the practice squad this season, Rochell has appeared in six games for the Browns in 2022.
Secondly, despite being eliminated from postseason contention, running back Nick Chubb has no plans of shutting it down over the next two weeks. On pace to shatter his personal bests across the board, Chubb sits third in the NFL in rushing with 1,344 yards and 12 touchdowns on 276 carries this season.
