Christian Kirksey Out for Season Following Chest Surgery

Christian Kirksey

Cleveland Browns linebacker Christian Kirksey will miss the rest of 2019 following a chest surgery.

Kirksey suffered a pectoral injury in Week 2’s victory against the New York Jets. He was placed on injured reserve following the injury. The Browns were hoping he could make a return this season, but following the surgery Cleveland shut him down for the season.

This is the former third-rounder’s third injury in just two seasons. He missed two games in early 2018 with a shoulder injury, then five more starting in November with a Grade 2 Hamstring strain. Before this stretch, he played all 16 games in each of his first four seasons.

Off to a productive start before his injury, he racked up 11 tackles (five solo, two for a loss). For his career, he has 469 tackles, 11.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and two interceptions. Kirksey has been a mainstay of a defense that lost some veteran leadership.

The Browns have reportedly signed Willie Harvey off of their practice squad. Harvey was previously an undrafted free agent. Week 5 will be Harvey’s first NFL start.

The 2-2 Browns continue their season against the 3-0 San Francisco 49ers on Monday, October 7.
