Saturday's NFL injury and roster news for Week 2

Browns defensive end Adrian Clayborn is dealing with an injury that may linger this season.

Clayborn left Thursday night’s win over the Bengals with a hip flexor strain but hopes to play through it while getting treatment, a source told NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

Clayborn managed to get a sack before exiting what was his debut with the Browns. Entering his tenth year in the league, Clayborn, 32, signed a two-year deal with the team this offseason.

Here’s other news Around The NFL is monitoring on Saturday:

  • Dallas Cowboys cornerback Anthony Brown was placed on injured reserve for a rib injury, the team announced. Brown first popped up on the injury report Friday but the team felt the issue was bad enough to shelve him for at least three games. In a corresponding move, the Cowboys promoted tackle Eric Smith from the practice squad.
  • The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed undrafted rookie tackle Brandon Walton to their practice squad. The move comes off the heels of losing starting right tackle Zach Banner (knee) for the entire season and placing right guard Stefan Wisniewski (chest) on injured reserve after Week 1. The Steelers are also missing starting guard David DeCastro (knee) to start the 2020 season.
  • The Indianapolis Colts have elevated undrafted rookie tight end Farrod Green from the practice squad to the active roster with Jack Doyle (ankle/knee) out this Sunday for their home opener against the Vikings.
