DeShone Kizer to play in Week 11 after X-rays come back negative

Posted November 13, 2017

That wasn't the worst part of Cleveland's first-half performance.

After missing on five of his first seven passes, Stafford finished 17 for 26 through the air for 249 yards and three touchdowns with one interception.

Kizer played well until he was hurt, then came back and did what he could.

Detroit took its first lead at 17-10 with 3:55 to go in the half when cornerback Nevin Lawson picked up a fumble and scampered 44 yards into the end zone.

Myles Garrett wasn't surprised to see the Detroit Lions rally from an early 10-point deficit Sunday.

Browns tight end Seth DeValve, though, said Kizer did audible into the quarterback dive. Then, after a 29-yard punt return after a three-and-out from the Browns, Stafford found Tate for a 40-yard touchdown, which gave the Lions a two-score advantage. The touchdown came on a good read, as Kizer saw a blitz and threw to the hot receiver (Britt), who was able to make someone miss and score.

But after the game, the X-Rays on the rookie quarterback came back clear, and he's set to play next week.

What it means: If the Browns played this way all season, there would be unhappiness about the record but credit for an undermanned team competing to win.

Kizer, Jackson, and the Browns definitely have a lot of work to do. QB DeShone Kizer has four rushing touchdowns, the most by a Cleveland quarterback since Brian Sipe had four in 1974. I saw a better version of him today. It went nowhere, and the Lions wisely made sure the Browns could not get up to spike the ball for a field goal try.

Tight end Eric Ebron's second touchdown of the season moved the Lions back in front after Kizer's injury.

The Browns drove 85 yards following the second-half kickoff to tie the game at 17. The Week 10 matchup was much closer than most anticipated, with the Browns putting up 10 unanswered points to start the contest. "He's a good player".
