CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns are playing in their first Sunday Night Football game in 11 years against Super Bowl contender Los Angeles Rams, but will be doing so with a very thin roster.

A little more than an hour before the game, the Browns announced the players listed as inactive. Cleveland is down two cornerbacks, two safeties, two tackles and a wide receiver—five of whom are starters.

Here are the Browns players listed as inactive for tonight's game against the Rams:

  • CB Denzel Ward
  • S Damarious Randall
  • CB Greedy Williams
  • S Morgan Burnett
  • T Chris Hubbard
  • T Kendall Lamm
  • WR Rashard Higgins

The following players will start in place of the inactive starters:

• Damion Ratley starts at WR (Njoku)
• Justin McCray starts at RT (Hubbard)
• Mack Wilson starts at WILL (Kirksey)
• Juston Burris starts at DB (Taylor)
• T.J. Carrie starts at CB (Ward)
• Terrance Mitchell starts at CB (Williams)
• Eric Murray starts at S (Randall)
• Jermaine Whitehead starts at S (Burnett)

The Rams also announced their inactive players going into Sunday night's game:

Rams inactives:

  • WR Nsimba Webster
  • CB David Long
  • OLB Ogbo Okoronkwo
  • RG Austin Blythe
  • OT Bobby Evans
  • TE Tyler Higbee
  • DT Greg Gaines

Rams star defensive tackle Aaron Donald was previously listed as questionable but was not moved to the inactive roster ahead of the game, implying his full participation Sunday.
