    Thornhill (calf) is good to go for Saturday's wild-card matchup with the Texans. Thornhill sat out the Browns' regular-season finale, but it looks like his health recovered in time for Saturday's tilt. Look for him to resume his usual responsibilities at safety assuming he avoids any setbacks.

  • Browns' Juan Thornhill: Makes return to practice

    Thornhill (calf) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. After missing the Browns' regular-season finale and being listed as a nonparticipant at practice Tuesday, Thornhill was able to take a positive step Wednesday toward possibly suiting up for the wild-card round. He'll still likely need to manage a full practice Thursday to avoid carrying an injury designation into Friday and potentially gameday.

Thornhill popped up on the injury report Thursday with an apparent calf injury, putting his status in question for Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Bengals.

  • Browns' Juan Thornhill: Quiet day Thursday

    Thornhill recorded four tackles (three solo) in Thursday's 37-20 win versus the Jets. Despite leading Cleveland's safeties in snaps in Week 17 (55), Thornhill was only able to tally four total tackles in his return from his calf injury. He continues to play relatively well in coverage though, so he will likely retain a near every-down role in Week 18 at Cincinnati.

  • Browns' Juan Thornhill: Ready for Sunday

    Thornhill (calf) has no injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Zac Jackson of The Athletic reports. The 28-year-old safety was a full participant in Friday's practice, and it now seems as if he's had enough time to move past his calf issue. Thornhill has appeared in 10 games in his first season with the Browns, logging 50 total tackles and one pass deflection.

  • Browns' Juan Thornhill: Misses practice Wednesday

    Thornhill (calf) did not participate at the Browns' practice Wednesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Thornhill has played through his calf issue each of the last two weeks and even lead the team with seven tackles in Cleveland's 36-19 loss to the Rams, so his absence at practice to open the week isn't particularly concerning. The safety will look to return to the field at some point ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Jaguars at home.

  • Browns' Juan Thornhill: Leading tackler in loss

    Thornhill logged seven total tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 36-19 loss to the Rams. The 2019 second-round pick tallied his fourth game this season with seven stops, and he tied Martin Emerson for the team's leading tackler. Thornhill has had a productive year in his first season with Cleveland, recording 50 total tackles and one pass deflection through 10 appearances. The 28-year-old and the Browns' defense will look to rebound against a Jaguars team that will likely be without star quarterback Trevor Lawrence (ankle) in Week 14.

  • Browns' Juan Thornhill: Will play Sunday at Rams

    Thornhill (calf) does not carry an injury designation into Sunday's game at the Rams, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. As he did in Week 12, it seems like Thornhill will be able to play through the calf issue he's nursing in Week 13. He was not on a pitch count in the Browns' loss at Denver in their last contest, so it's reasonable to expect he'll play a full complement of snaps again Sunday.

  • Browns' Juan Thornhill: Cleared for Monday Night Football

    Thornhill (calf) is active for Monday's matchup against the Steelers. Thornhill missed the season opener due to a calf injury and was listed as questionable for Week 2. The 2019 second-round pick will be available to make his Browns debut Monday night, but it's unclear how big of a role he'll have right away. However, eventually, Thornhill should take over as a full-time starter.

  • Browns' Juan Thornhill: Still recovering from injury

    Thornhill (calf) did not practice Thursday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Thornhill is being considered day-to-day, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski. The Virginia product was unable to play Week 1 against the Bengals; however, it sounds like he may be able to return to the practice field soon. Even if he does, though, the fourth-year pro may still not be ready to suit up Monday against the Steelers.

  • Chiefs' Juan Thornhill: Makes all-around impact Week 14

    Thornhill posted seven tackles (five solo), including one sack, and a pass defended in Sunday's 34-28 victory over the Broncos. Thornhill contributed one of his team' six sacks in this impressive outing for the Kansas City defense. The fourth-year safety also logged two more tackles against Denver quarterback Russell Wilson, who was forced out with a concussion early in the fourth quarter. Thornhill has now played every defensive snap since returning from his one-game hiatus due to a calf injury, totaling 17 tackles over these two contests. Expect him to continue slotting in as one of the Chiefs' top defenders Week 15 in Houston.

  • Chiefs' Juan Thornhill: 10 stops in return

    Thornhill compiled 10 tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 27-24 defeat against the Bengals. Thornhill returned to his every-down role following a one-game absence with a calf injury. As a result, the safety finished with the Chiefs' second-most tackles behind prolific linebacker Nick Bolton (16). Thornhill also had what would have been his second interception of the season wiped away due to a defensive pass interference penalty by cornerback Trent McDuffie on the opening series of the game. Nevertheless, Thornhill still ranks second on the team in passes defended (six) this season, and he should play a prominent role in stopping the Broncos' paltry pass offense Week 14.

  • Chiefs' Juan Thornhill: Notches first INT of 2021

    Thornhill recorded six tackles (four solo) and his first interception of the season Sunday versus the Broncos. Thornhill's rookie season drew some buzz thanks to a trio of interceptions and a promising tackle total (58). While he has just one interception in each of the last two seasons -- 2021 still has some time for him to add to it -- Thornhill seems to be trending up in his tackle count. If he maintains his current pace, the third-year safety would finish out the season with a career-best of about 64 tackles.

  • Chiefs' Juan Thornhill: Moving into starting role

    The Chiefs plan to start Thornhill at free safety in Sunday's game in Washington ahead of Daniel Sorensen, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Perhaps no player in the Chiefs' much-maligned defense has struggled as much as Sorensen, who Pro Football Focus ranks as its 83rd safety among the 85 players at the position who have played 100-plus snaps this season. In addition to missing nine tackles -- 20.5 percent of his overall opportunities, per Pro Football Reference -- Sorensen has also been responsible for a 153.8 passer rating when targeted in coverage this season. The Chiefs are hoping that Thornhill can provide an upgrade at the back end, and even if he's not a standout performer in real-life terms, he should have ample opportunities to record statistics. Thanks in part to his own shortcomings in coverage, Sorensen still racked up 35 tackles through five games, a total that ranks tied for 13th among secondary players.

  • Chiefs' Juan Thornhill: Leads Chiefs' Week 3 tackle count

    Thornhill topped the Chiefs' defense with six tackles (five solo) Monday against the Ravens. Although he hasn't quite put up the numbers to suggest a repeat of his rookie season, Thornhill and Tyrann Mathieu were the only two players to play every defensive snap Monday. He should continue to see consistent action at safety moving forward, but his numbers haven't put him on too many IDP radars just yet.

  • Chiefs' Juan Thornhill: Comes off PUP list

    The Chiefs activated Thornhill (knee) from the active/PUP list Wednesday after he passed a physical, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Thornhill's rookie season came to an end when he suffered a torn ACL in his left knee Week 17, causing the 2019 second-rounder to miss the Chiefs' Super Bowl run. He's made significant progress in his rehab, though, and appears ready to partake in practice in some capacity. Thornhill's status for the Chiefs' Week 1 matchup with the Texans remains undecided, but if he's able to suit up, he likely will serve as the team's starting free safety.
