The Browns will start undrafted rookie L.J. Fort at strong-side linebacker in their season opener.

Fort showed some promise for a UDFA in preseason games, but LeSean McCoy should run all over this unit in Week 1. Cleveland is also minus NT Phil Taylor, SLB Scott Fujita, WLB Chris Gocong, and rookie LB James-Michael Johnson.
