DE - CLE - OUT

Cleveland Browns edge rusher Olivier Vernon is inactive for the team's Week 2 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday Night Football due to an abdomen injury.
Vernon recorded two tackles in Week 1 but was listed as questionable heading into Thursday's matchup due to an abdomen injury. He'll now have 10 days to recover ahead of the team's Week 3 matchup against the Washington Football Team at home.
The Browns and DE Olivier Vernon have agreed to a renegotiated contract that will turn $15.25M non-guaranteed into $11M guaranteed through a $7M signing bonus.
Vernon will have a base salary of $3.75M with an additional $250K workout bonus. He’ll also have $2M worth of incentives in his contract. He’ll be an unrestricted free agent after this season in Cleveland. Vernon missed six games last year due to injury but has been a very productive pass rusher in his eight-year career when healthy. He’s totaled 55 sacks in 113 games played with the Dolphins, Giants, and Browns.
Cleveland Browns defensive end Olivier Vernon is officially inactive for Week 16 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Vernon being absent is an upgrade to the Ravens already dominant rushing attack. Sheldon Richardson is active in the middle, but the Ravens should have their way on the edges. Mark Ingram has solid RB1 upside against a depleted Ravens defensive line.
Cleveland Browns defensive end Olivier Vernon has been ruled out for Week 14's contest against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Olivier Vernon is back on the sidelines with his knee injury. Vernon being absent is a big upgrade for the Joe Mixon and the Bengals rushing attack. Missing both of their starting book end rushers should also decrease the Browns pressure rate on Andy Dalton, who also gets a small upgrade with Vernon ruled out.
