Browns' Christian Kirksey: Shifts to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns placed Kirksey (hamstring) on injured reserve Wednesday, Andrew Gribble of the team's official site reports.

The linebacker had battled through a number of injuries during the campaign, sitting out Weeks 2 and 3 as a result. Kirksey had played each of the past six games and recently shifted over from the weak side to fill in for the injured Joe Schobert (hamstring) in the middle before departing in the second half of Sunday's loss to the Chiefs with a hamstring issue of his own. An MRI apparently revealed that Kirksey's injury was at least a week-to-week concern, prompting the Browns to shut the 26-year-old down for the rest of the season. With Kirksey out of commission and Schobert's return date still uncertain, rookie Genard Avery should be locked into a starting role for the rest of the way.

Browns' Christian Kirksey: Departs game with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirksey injured his hamstring and is questionable to return to Sunday's game versus the Chiefs, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Kirksey made three solo tackles before leaving the contest. He's been highly durable in his career, missing just two games -- both this season -- in his five-year career. If he doesn't return, expect Tanner Vallejo to see an uptick in usage.

Browns' Christian Kirksey: Tallies another interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirksey recorded 10 tackles (seven solo), recovered a fumble, and intercepted a pass in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

Kirksey didn't record a single interception through his first four seasons, but he now has two in as many weeks. He'll be a quality IDP if he can continue stacking performances like he has the past two weeks. Looking ahead, he and the Browns will head to Pittsburgh to face off against the Steelers in Week 8.

Browns' Christian Kirksey: Grabs first interception Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirksey posted one tackle and defended two passes, including an interception, in Sunday's loss to the Chargers.

Kirksey's interception Sunday was the first of his five-year NFL career. While his one tackle was none too impressive, he made a couple quality plays in pass defense. He and the Browns will look to secure another win in Week 7 when they take on Tampa Bay.

Browns' Christian Kirksey: Double-digit tackles in Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirksey recorded 12 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 12-9 win over Baltimore.

Kirksey's 12 tackles more than doubled his season total entering Sunday's tilt. He had struggled with the flu during the week, but it didn't seem to affect him during the contest. He'll look to build on his strong performance next week against the Chargers.
