Fantasy Impact

Christian Kirksey lands on injured reserve

Christian Kirksey (chest) has been placed on IR.

Fantasy Impact

Kirksey might be a candidate to return to action later this season. It all depends if he needs surgery to address what may be a torn pectoral muscle. Mack Wilson is in line to fill Kirksey's spot in the team's starting lineup.

Christian Kirksey with a quiet MNF

Christian Kirksey posted only four total tackles in a win against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact

Kirksey has not had a big game through the early goings of this season, as his teammate, Joe Schobert, has been the one posting double-digit figures. Kirksey looks to get back on track this Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams.

Christian Kirksey placed on IR

The Browns placed starting linebacker Christian Kirksey (hamstring) on injured reserve Wednesday, ending his season.

Fantasy Impact

Kirksey injured his hamstring in Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs. He had 43 tackles, one fumble recovery, and two interceptions in seven games. It’s a tough blow for a Browns defense that was already without starting middle linebacker Joe Schobert as well as multiple other starters. Tanner Vallejo is expected to get first crack at replacing Kirksey in the starting lineup.
