The Cleveland Browns are set to host the Los Angeles Rams in a major primetime game tonight. They will do so shorthanded.

Cleveland has been hit hard by injuries, especially in the secondary. In fact, their entire starting secondary is inactive tonight.

That's right. Cornerbacks Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams and safeties Damarious Randall and Morgan Burnett won't play tonight.

All four were on the team's inactive list released moments ago.

This clearly isn't an ideal development against one of the top playcallers in the NFL and a receiving corps that features Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and other weapons.

Cleveland is going to need a big performance from its pass rush, led by Myles Garrett, to get defensive stops.

Rams-Browns will kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET from FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland.

NBC will broadcast the game.
