What to know for the Cleveland Browns Thursday night game


CLEVELAND (WJW)– The injury-riddled Browns take on the Broncos Thursday night in Cleveland.

The game between the 3-3 teams kicks off at 8:20 p.m. from FirstEnergy Stadium.

Here’s what else you need to know:


The Browns are dealing with a slew of injuries and the short week is not helping. Veteran Case Keenum will start at quarterback as Baker Mayfield continues to deal with a shoulder issue.

The dynamic running back duo of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt are out. Rookie linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah is also on the injured reserve.

On Tuesday, Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder), Jack Conklin (knee), JC Tretter (knee) and Jedrick Wills (ankle) did not practice.


The city of Cleveland said parking restrictions will begin at about 5 p.m. and last until two hours after the game is over. Signs on poles and parking meters indicate areas affected by restrictions. 

Fans are also reminded that many of the downtown parking lots will be occupied during business hours.

Muni lot

Since it’s an evening game, the municipal parking lot will open at noon. It costs $25 per occupied space.

Cleveland police will not allow cars to line up on the Shoreway, and drivers should not gather on East 9th Street, South Marginal Road, East 55th Street or St. Clair Avenue. Instead, they can line up on King Avenue eastbound to East 40th Street, then south to Lakeside Avenue.

As always, there are rules for the muni lot:

  • No open pit fires
  • Propane grills only
  • No alcohol
  • No saving spaces
  • You will be charged for each parking space you occupy
  • No in-and-out privileges
