CLEVELAND — Browns left tackle Greg Robinson was ejected from the game with 4:54 left in the second quarter for kicking Titans safety Kenny Vaccaro.
On a 2-yard run by Nick Chubb, Robinson was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct. After an officials’ discussion, with Browns coach Freddie Kitchens on the field, Robinson was disqualified.

Kendall Lamm, a five-year veteran from Appalachian State, temporarily replaced Robinson. But Lamm suffered a knee injury and was questionable to return. On the Browns' final series of the first half, right tackle Chris Hubbard moved to left tackle and Justin McCray, a third-year guard from Central Florida, took over at right tackle.
Compounding the Browns being down two offensive linemen was the fact that center/guard Austin Corbett, a second-round pick in 2018, was inactive.
When Robinson was tossed, the Browns trailed 10-6 and had been penalized eight times for 96 yards.
It was the second big penalty on Robinson in the game. On the Browns’ first possession, Robinson was flagged for unnecessary roughness for a blindside block on cornerback Malcolm Butler.
The second overall pick of the Rams in 2014, Robinson salvaged his career with the Browns last season, when he started the final eight games.
