Pierre Desir is inactive Monday against the Ravens.
As a result, Justin Gilbert will draw the start at left cornerback for the Cleveland Browns in place of Desir on Monday.
Pierre Desir will start at cornerback in place of the injured Joe Haden (concussion).
Desir drew the start last week against the Broncos, and ended up tallying a career-best 12 combined tackles. Despite some struggles defending Peyton Manning and the Denver passing attack, the Cleveland Browns will once again turn to Desir to start opposite Tramon Williams.
Pierre Desir logged a career-best 12 tackles (10 solo) in Sunday's loss to the Broncos. He was also credited with one pass defended.
Desir stepped into a starting role with Joe Haden (finger/concussion) out for the contest, and ended up with a productive fantasy effort. This doesn't mean he played well, however, as he was beaten multiple times on deep, back-shoulder routes, and that is partially responsible for the high tackle total. Any utility that can be drawn from the impressive statistical performance is likely to evaporate as soon as Haden returns. If anything, the output provides clarity to a cornerback depth chart that had been a bit cloudy after Haden and fellow starter Tramon Williams.
