  • Kirksey limped off the field during Friday's scrimmage with an apparent leg injury, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Kirksey went down just three plays into Cleveland's intersquad scrimmage. According to the report, he was surrounded by the medical staff before limping off with the help of a trainer. Kirksey led the team with 148 total tackles in 2017 and figures to play a similar role this season, if healthy.

  • Kirksey is expected to move from inside to outside linebacker in 2017, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports. Kirksey was prolific as a middle linebacker in 2016, recording a career-high 148 tackles. With the Browns switching from a 3-4 defense to a 4-3 setup in 2017, Kirksey will have to adjust to a different spot on the field, but he'll still be tasked with helping snuff out the run game. The shift shouldn't prove too difficult for the fourth-year linebacker, but it could result in him seeing a slight dip in tackles from a season earlier.
