CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns beat the Detroit Lions 20 to 16 in the final preseason game on Thursday.
Earlier today, the Browns made a trade with the Buffalo Bills for Guard Wyatt Teller. The Browns gave Buffalo 2020 5th and 6th round picks for his services. Cleveland got back a 2021 7th rounder in the deal.
Teller started seven games last year at guard and certainly comes in to Cleveland with a great opportunity to play immediately at the right guard position. The move puts Eric Kush on the bubble.
The Browns also announced that RB Kareem Hunt would not play in Thursday’s game after undergoing surgery this morning for a sports hernia injury. A full recovery is expected before his return in Week 10 of the regular season.
Many of the other backup players got their chance to shine as those final spots on the roster come into focus.
The final cutdown is Saturday afternoon at 4 p.m.
There are battles at back up running back, at place kicker, tight end and those last few spots in the receiving corps could be decided as well.
