Along with losing to the Kansas City Chiefs, the Cleveland Browns also left Sunday’s game with concern about left tackle Jedrick Wills’ immediate future.

Wills was blocking on Jarvis Landry’s touchdown run when he stepped on a Chiefs player that had gone to the ground. Wills immediately went down and was helped off the field by trainers. Shortly thereafter, the Browns medical staff placed him on the cart and took him back to the locker room.

The team announced that they ruled Wills out for the game shortly following halftime and worry lingered that he could be out for much longer. Head coach Kevin Stefanski spoke to the media and calmed those concerns:

Day-to-day gives hopes that Wills would be available for Week 2’s home opener against the Houston Texans but Cleveland is likely to play it safe. Ankle injuries can linger if not properly cared for and the team has long-term goals in mind for 2021 and beyond for their 2020 first-round pick.
