CINCINNATI — The Browns will start veteran Greg Robinson at offensive left tackle for the third consecutive game Sunday when they face the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium.
Undrafted rookie left tackle Desmond Harrison will be inactive. He's a healthy scratch, a Browns spokesman said.
Harrison started the first eight games of the season until an illness contributed to him being inactive. Although he has recovered from the illness and was not listed on the injury report last week, Harrison will sit out against the Bengals.
Since replacing Harrison, Robinson has received praise from coaches and teammates, including rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield, for his performance.
The following Browns players will also be inactive: quarterback Drew Stanton, wide receiver Da'Mari Scott, cornerback Juston Burris, tight end Pharaoh Brown, defensive end Chad Thomas and defensive tackle Carl Davis.
Center JC Tretter (high-ankle sprain) and tight end David Njoku (knee) will be active as expected. Both of the starters were listed as questionable to play.
Four Bengals starters are inactive: receiver A.J. Green (toe), cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick (shoulder), offensive left tackle Cordy Glenn (back) and linebacker Nick Vigil (knee). Receiver Josh Malone (hamstring) and defensive ends Kasim Edebali and Christian Ringo will be inactive for the Bengals, too.
On Friday, Browns starting free safety Damarious Randall said the Bengals would be doomed if Green missed his third consecutive game.
"If they don't have A.J., they're getting their ass beat," Randall said.
