Jedrick Wills Reportedly Will Play Against Broncos, Jack Conklin Won't

The Cleveland Browns might get some offensive line help back against the Denver Broncos as left tackle Jedrick Wills is reportedly going to be able to play.

According to James Palmer of NFL Network, the Cleveland Browns will get some good news on the offensive line against the Denver Broncos as left tackle Jedrick Wills is expected to play. Unfortunately, right tackle Jack Conklin is unlikely to be available.

Wills has been dealing with an ankle injury since the first game of the season and has been muddling through it. He was unable to play against the Arizona Cardinals and the rest may have helped him get back to being able to play. The question for Wills is going to come down to how effective he can be.

In previous weeks, he was clearly compromised. If he can return to closer to normal, it would be a major boon to the Browns offense and especially quarterback Case Keenum, who will start in this game.

Wills will return to left tackle in that scenario. It's expected that Blake Hance will start at right tackle as opposed to rookie James Hudson III, who played there against the Cardinals.

Hance has been undoubtedly better than Hudson, so if he can show any level of comfort at that spot, the Browns will be better for it. The Browns have been able to get functional play at the left tackle spot with him over there, which is great for the team's fourth tackle option.

The Browns have a number of other injury decisions to make for this game including wide receiver Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry just on the offensive side of the ball.
