CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns released a list of inactive players ahead of Sunday’s season opener against the Baltimore Ravens and some notable starters who will look to make an impact as the team takes the field for the first time this season.

The following players have been listed as inactive for Sunday’s matchup:

  • WR Donovan Peoples-Jones
  • CB Greedy Williams
  • CB Kevin Johnson
  • LB Mack Wilson
  • T Chris Hubbard
  • DE Joe Jackson

Williams has been dealing with a shoulder injury, Johnson has been recovering from a liver laceration, and Hubbard and Wilson are both dealing with knee injuries.

With Peoples-Jones out, Browns fans should expect to see wide receiver JoJo Natson handling many of the punt returns with D’Ernest Johnson sharing some of the work.

The Browns also announced a list of notable changes to players expected to start Sunday, including center JC Tretter, cornerback Terrence Mitchell and rookie linebacker Jacob Phillips.

Tretter underwent a knee scope last month and it was uncertain if he’s be able to start Sunday, but was able to return to practice Monday, although limited.

With Williams out, Mitchell is expected to replace him at cornerback, providing veteran experience in a tough matchup on the road.

Phillips, the rookie out of LSU, will have a task ahead of him, making his first start in the National Football League against division champs. In his time at LSU, Phillips recorded 218 career tackles with 13.5 tackles for loss, two sacks and an interception. He led the national champion Tigers and SEC in tackles last season and had eight tackles in LSU’s title game win over Clemson. Now starting for the Browns, Phillips will look to make an impact with Cleveland.

The Browns-Ravens game kicks off at 1 p.m.
