CLEVELAND – The Cincinnati Bengals will be without starting cornerback Leon Hall and safety Reggie Nelson when they play the Browns.
Hall, Nelson and backup cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick are out Sunday with hamstring injuries, leaving Cincinnati's secondary in shambles. Adam "Pacman" Jones will start for Hall, and Taylor Mays will slide over from strong to free safety and take Nelson's spot.
Browns starting linebacker Jabaal Sheard is out with a sprained left knee, giving rookie Barkevious Mingo his first NFL start. Mingo has two sacks in two games after missing the season opener with a bruised lung. Defensive end Billy Winn is also out with a quadriceps injury, testing Cleveland's depth up front.
Browns kicker Billy Cundiff is active after missing some practice this week with a quadriceps injury.
