NFL injury report: Browns banged up in win over Chiefs, but likely not too serious

The Cleveland Browns had a few players to add to the injury report after their 30-7 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 14, but the injuries aren't considered serious.

The Cleveland Browns have now won three-straight games, culminating in a one-sided beatdown of the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. The game wasn't without its casualties though, as the Browns saw multiple players hobbled by some kind of injury.

Defensive tackle Phil Taylor left the game early and went back to the locker room, with an apparent ankle injury. He eventually returned to the sideline and was seen trying to pump the crowd up, but he did not return to the game. Taylor has only played in four games this season due to injuries.

Wide receiver Josh Cribbs and safety Ray Ventrone were both dealing with injuries after the game. It's unclear how serious their injuries are, but they did miss some time. Linebacker James Michael Johnson also was banged up, but he returned to action.

In good injury news, cornerback Dimitri Patterson made his first start since injuring his ankle on Oct. 7 against the New York Giants, and he didn't suffer any setbacks. The Chiefs were far worse-off in the injury department, with Dwayne Bowe and Jamaal Charles both going down to injury in the loss.
