Browner, Clemons will both play
"Brandon practiced all week and did a good job," Carroll said. "And I'm really excited to tell you Chris is going to play this week. It means the world to Chris."
Clemons and Browner will be playing for the first time this season. Browner has been out with a hamstring injury. Clemons had ACL surgery in the offseason.
"He's had a fantastic recovery process," Carroll said of Clemons, the team's leading pass rusher last season with 11½ sacks. "I'm really proud of him and glad he gets to join us. He's improved steadily at practice, but he's in great shape. His conditioning is not a factor at all. He's in as good a shape as anybody on the football team."
