The Cleveland Browns announced on Saturday that free safety Damarious Randall would not be playing Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The team stated that it was a coaching decision and Randall would not be traveling with the team to Pittsburgh. According to Cleveland.com, something happened during the week that led to this decision and that Randall didn’t participate in the media portion of Friday’s practice.
It’s been a long season for the safety who will be a free agent this coming offseason. He has already missed four games due to injuries. When he’s been on the field, Randall hasn’t made the same impact he did last season with only 35 tackles, two sacks and four pass deflections in seven games (all starts).
With Randall out, expect a rotation of fourth-round pick Sheldrick Redwine and Juston Burris at the free safety spot.
