Three Browns have been ruled out for Cleveland’s Week 10 matchup against Buffalo.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Friday that Olivier Vernon, Ricky Seals-Jones and Eric Murray will all miss Sunday’s game.

Vernon, who came over in the trade that brought Beckham to Cleveland, is nursing a knee injury. He suffered the injury in the Browns’ loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 9. It is not known whether it will keep him out for multiple games, but is bad enough to hold him out of an important matchup against the Bills. His replacement on the right side is Chris Smith. Chad Thomas may also take snaps at right defensive end in his absence.
Cornerback Eric Murray will also miss Week 10 with a knee injury. He underwent knee surgery on November 1, which kept him out in Week 9. His recovery schedule does not make another absence too surprising.
The third knee injury belongs to Ricky Seals-Jones, who did not practice at all this week. Being officially ruled out was an inevitability. The Browns could go with Demetrius Harris, Pharaoh Brown and/or Stephen Carlson will fill in at the tight end position.
The 2-6 Browns will try yet again to turn their season around on Sunday, November 10 when the Bills come to town.
