The Cleveland Browns have four players questionable ahead of their game with the Kansas City Chiefs, while the Chiefs have ruled out wide receiver Sammy Watkins, linebacker Willie Gay and will have a pair of players questionable of this matchup.

For the Browns, tight ends David Njoku and Stephen Carlson are questionable, though Carlson did not practice either Thursday or Friday with a calf injury, Right tackle Jack Conklin and linebacker B.J. Goodson are also questionable, but participated in practice on Friday.

The Browns aren't commenting on the availability of anyone other than to say they hope they'll be able to play followed by clichés. Goodson has said he will play through an AC joint sprain and bruised ribs.

For Njoku and Conklin, it's hamstring issues, which can be notoriously tricky. The fact they promised on Friday is positive, but it's often an injury that can flare up at almost any time.

The Chiefs will be without Watkins, who suggested this game might not be competitive, with a calf injury. Gay is dealing with an ankle injury.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire, the team's rookie running back is questionable, but only practiced on Wednesday. He's coming back from a high ankle sprain. They may keep him active in case they need him, but he doesn't appear ready to offer much at this point.

Deon Yelder, a reserve tight end, is in the same boat. He practiced on Wednesday, but was out both Thursday and Friday. He's dealing with a groin injury. 

Corner Rashad Fenton was able to practice both Thursday and Friday on a limited basis. He's dealing with foot and ankle injuries.
