The Cleveland Browns' defensive line is an absolute mess at the moment. Myles Garrett, Jadeveon Clowney and Taven Bryan all missed Cleveland's Week 4 loss to the Atlanta Falcons due to injuries, leading the Browns to add some pass rush depth to start the week.

NFL insider Tom Pelissero reported Monday evening that the Browns have signed defensive end Sam Kamara to their practice squad, according to Kamara's agent. The 24-year-old defender has sat in free agency ever since the Chicago Bears cut him following an impressive training camp.

Browns Roster News

Garrett could be out for nearly a month following his car accident, so it makes sense for Cleveland to bring in Kamara. The former Stony Brook product led the league in quarterback hurries this preseason while also recording 5 solo tackles, 1 sack and a QB hit in three games.

It'll be interesting to see if the Browns will elevate Kamara to the 53-man roster when they host the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 5. He's only played eight career games without a start, but still has 10 tackles with a broken-up pass over 108 defensive snaps.

Kamara won't provide the same level of play as the likes of Garrett or Clowney, but his presence is necessary to strengthen Cleveland's defensive line. Hopefully the undrafted defender can use the opportunity to step up and prove that he belongs in the NFL.

Chargers vs Browns Week 5 Odds

The Browns can certainly use any boost they can get to help pull off a victory in Week 5. As it stands, Cleveland is a 3-point home underdog against Los Angeles on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds with +130 moneyline odds.
