BEREA, Ohio — The Cleveland Browns could be missing several starters Sunday night when they face the defending NFC champion Los Angeles Rams.
Tight end David Njoku (wrist), linebacker Christian Kirksey (chest), right tackle Chris Hubbard (foot) and safeties Damarious Randall (concussion) and Morgan Burnett (leg) missed practice Thursday.
Njoku broke his right wrist in Monday’s win over the Jets and may need surgery. Coach Freddie Kitchens said the team is still exploring medical options with the third-year tight end.
One of the team’s captains, Kirksey is also facing a possible operation and Kitchens said “we are talking to other doctors to see what the action is.”
If Kirksey can’t play, rookie Mack Wilson will start in his spot. Wilson had four tackles against the Jets.
Hubbard was in Cleveland’s locker room wearing a walking boot. Justin McCray, who was signed last month, would replace him in the starting lineup.
