The final injury report of the week was announced on Friday, and once again, Joey Bosa, Travis Benjamin and Kyzir White have been ruled out. Meanwhile, Jatavis Brown, who started for White last week, is listed as doubtful.

Three players are listed as questionable in Caleb Sturgis, Russell Okung and Joe Barksdale.

Sturgis, who has been dealing with a sore quad all week, was once again limited in practice, and Head Coach Anthony Lynn said the decision on who will kick will be made closer to game time as he wants to give the veteran "as much rest as possible." The Bolts signed Michael Badgley on Thursday as an insurance policy in case Sturgis can't play.

Meanwhile, Barksdale is questionable to play after being out since Week 1 and Okung may return after missing last week's win over the Raiders.

Though limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, Mike Pouncey is confirmed to play on Sunday, as he was removed from the injury report along with Virgil Green and Damion Square.

For Cleveland, third-year wide receiver Rashard Higgins, a favorite target of rookie QB Baker Mayfield, has been officially ruled out. Higgins is week-to-week with an MCL tear suffered in last week's game against the Ravens.

The Browns were expected to lean on rookies Derrick Willies and Damion Ratley to fill Higgins' spot, but they will be down to just one of those rookies after Willies injured his shoulder in Friday's practice. Meanwhile, linebacker James Burgess Jr., who has been sidelined with a knee injury since Week 3 and was limited in practice all week, is marked as questionable.

Finally, a major part of Cleveland's special teams, linebacker Tanner Vallejo, has been ruled out after suffering a concussion during Thursday's practice.
