The Browns waited four games but got their first payoff from RB Duke Johnson, who beat a LB for 34-yard TD catch. That’s the kind of mismatch the Browns envisioned with him.

Browns inactives: CB Joe Haden, RB Robert Turbin, CB K’Waun Williams, LB Craig Robertson, LB Scott Solomon, TE E.J. Bibbs, DE Desmond Bryant. Browns without four defensive starters and nickel back.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

In a bit of a surprise, cornerback Joe Haden is inactive today vs. Chargers. Haden has injuries to his ribs and finger. The Browns face Philip Rivers without two of their top three CBs -- Haden and K'Waun Williams (concussion).
