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.

Browns linebacker Christian Kirksey left Sunday’s game after injuring his hamstring in the first half of the 37-21 loss to the Chiefs. He was unable to return.

Fantasy Impact

Kirksey recorded three solo tackles before the early exit. Interim head coach Gregg Williams did not provide an update on the injury after the game so it will be important to monitor his practice participation throughout the week. The Falcons are up next in Week 10.
