Cleveland Browns LT Jedrick Wills Jr. out with ankle injury; LB Anthony Walker returns from IR

Cleveland Browns left tackle Jedrick Wills Jr. has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers with a left ankle injury.

That likely will leave the Browns with Blake Hance or rookie James Hudson protecting quarterback Baker Mayfield's blind side as he plays through a torn labrum in his left, non-throwing shoulder.

Wills has been dealing with a sprained ankle since the season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs. He aggravated it during Cleveland's win over Minnesota last week.

Though the Browns won't have Wills on Sunday, they will be getting back linebacker Anthony Walker, who was activated off injured reserve Saturday. Walker, who started Cleveland's opener, suffered a hamstring injury the following week in practice that forced him to sit three games.
