The Cleveland Browns will look to snap a brief two-game losing streak in Week 6. Cleveland hosts the New England Patriots in a matchup that takes place during the 1 p.m. ET slate of Sunday's schedule.

Unfortunately, the Browns will not enter this matchup fully healthy. The team ruled out three key players ahead of this clash, including Jadeveon Clowney, Denzel Ward and Joe Haeg.

Browns Week 6 Injury Report

Those players are not alone on Cleveland's official injury report, but decisions have not been made on eight other Browns including Joel Bitonio, Amari Cooper and Myles Garrett.

Cornerback Ward sits on the injury report with a concussion, having not practiced for the entire week. Clowney is dealing with a variety of injuries and already missed two weeks of the season. The star pass-rusher did return against the Chargers last Sunday, but did not practice this entire week with ankle, knee and elbow issues.

Haeg serves as one of the backup tackles on head coach Kevin Stefanski's offensive line, but is dealing with the concussion protocol as well.

For now, the Browns enter this Week 6 clash as 2.5-point home favorites per NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
