CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns announced their inactive players for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions and wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones will not be taking the field.
Peoples-Jones injured his groin Wednesday during practice and was sidelined Thursday. On Friday, Peoples-Jones returned to practice in a limited basis but the Browns opted to rest him Sunday after listing him as questionable to play on Friday.
