Poyer was injured when he was the recipient of a blindside block while on punt coverage during Sunday's 28-26 loss to the Tennessee Titans. If they can get into a groove, this young team could start to make some noise out of the AFC South.
So wide receiver Kendall Wright responded with the type of game that Tennessee has wanted to see from him all year. "It's part of what we're trying to do here, the process of trying to build this thing, you need things like this to happen for you".
Sack Men: DL Danny Shelton and rookie OLB Emmanuel Ogbah had the only two sacks for the Browns. The Titans (3-3) sacked Cody Kessler six times, their second straight game with a half-dozen sacks.
Kessler became only the third Browns rookie to throw for at least 300 yards, second only to Brandon Weeden's 364 yards passing December 2, 2012, at Oakland.
Kessler was officially named the Browns starter after completing practice Thursday.
Defensive lineman Xavier Cooper will be inactive with a shoulder injury he suffered last week in a 33-13 loss to the New England Patriots. They also beat a team other than Jacksonville on their own field for the first time since the 2013 season finale and improved to 3-16 in Nashville.
"We just have to do better", Jackson said.

There is only one storyline that everyone will take from the game, which is head coach Hue Jackson's "controversial" decision to go for a two-point conversion late in the game. Gave ourselves a chance at that time. In spite of the hits, Kessler just kept making plays. "That was what we needed to do".
Jackson said he has a chart that he goes by, but ultimately it's his decision. He then led the Browns 62 yards for another touchdown when RB Duke Johnson scored from the one.
Kessler found Terrelle Pryor for a 7-yard scoring strike with 40 seconds remaining in the half, slicing the margin to 14-13 at halftime. The Browns have lost the first quarter in five of six games, which means they've played behind in those five contests.
"He's battling his butt off out there", Browns left tackle Joe Thomas said. Mariota also ran seven times for 64 yards, including a 41-yard run from the first play of scrimmage to open the game.
A bigger concern than Jackson's thought process at the end of the game is that for the second week in a row the Browns failed to get anything done in the rushing game.
