  • Browns' Martin Emerson: Records two tackles in playoff loss

    Emerson had two tackles and played 41 of 46 snaps in last Saturday's 45-14 wild-card playoff loss to the Texans.

    Emerson and the Browns' defense had a rough final game. He was most notable for an attempted arm tackle of Brevin Jordan, who cut inside and raced to the end zone for a 76-yard catch-and-run touchdown. The second-year cornerback led the Browns with four interceptions and finished fourth with 59 tackles during the regular season.

  • Browns' Martin Emerson: Continues to impress in coverage

    Emerson recorded three tackles (three solo) and two passes defensed in Thursday's 37-20 win versus the Jets.

    Thursday's was the second game in the last four weeks and the third game this season in which Emerson recorded multiple pass breakups. In Week 18, he'll have a tough test against Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder), Tee Higgins and the Bengals.

  • Browns' Martin Emerson: Cleared to suit up Thursday

    Emerson (ankle) practiced in full Wednesday and does not have an injury designation for Thursday's clash against the Jets, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.

    Emerson departed Sunday's Week 16 game against Houston early and logged a limited practice session both Monday and Tuesday, but he was able to return to full participation Wednesday. That clears the way for him to suit up versus New York on Thursday Night Football. Emerson has been a key contributor in Cleveland's secondary this season, as he's tied for fifth in the NFL with four interceptions and tied for 13th with 12 passes defensed.

  • Browns' Martin Emerson: Limited Monday

    Emerson (ankle) was a limited participant on Monday's practice estimate, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Emerson logged three solo tackles and one pass deflection in Sunday's 36-22 win over the Texans. He saw the field for 26 defensive snaps (53 percent) and three on special teams (14 percent) before exiting with a shin injury. His limited participation Monday does not shed a lot of light on his status for Thursday's game versus the Jets, so his status will need to be monitored as the week progresses.

  • Browns' Martin Emerson: Ruled out with shin injury

    Emerson (shin) has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Texans, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Cabot notes that Emerson was seen grabbing his right leg before leaving the game in the final minute of the second quarter. He had three tackles before exiting Sunday's contest. Cameron Mitchell will see more work as the backup cornerback behind Denzel Ward and Greg Newsome.

  • Browns' Martin Emerson: Two picks in win

    Emerson recorded four tackles, two interceptions and three passes defensed in Sunday's 31-27 win over Jacksonville in Week 14.

    No Denzel Ward (shoulder), no problem. Emerson and Greg Newsome (one interception) each contributed to a defensive effort that was much better than the score might indicate -- Jacksonville scored 14 points after turnovers in Cleveland's end of the field. Emerson is up to a team-leading four picks and 10 passes defensed. He sits fourth on the team with 47 tackles.

  • Browns' Martin Emerson: Productive in Sunday's loss

    Emerson logged seven total tackles (three solo) and one pass deflection in Sunday's 36-19 loss to the Rams.

    Emerson's seven stops were enough for him to tie with Juan Thornhill for Cleveland's leading tackler in Week 13. The second-year cornerback out of Mississippi State has played a vital role in the Browns' secondary this season, but the team was clearly hurting without Denzel Ward (shoulder), as it gave up its second-highest passing yards total on the year (279 yards). Emerson has recorded 43 total tackles, seven pass deflections and two interceptions through 12 games, and he'll look to help shut down the Jaguars' offense in Week 14.

  • Browns' Martin Emerson: Logs second career interception

    Emerson compiled six tackles (five solo), a pass deflection and an interception during Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Seahawks.

    Emerson had one of his most productive outings this season and managed to snag an interception, his second of both the season and career. The 2022 third-round pick will now look to help slow down Arizona's passing attack during a Week 9 matchup.

  • Browns' Martin Emerson: Makes first NFL pick

    Emerson had six tackles, an interception and an additional pass defensed in Sunday's 19-17 win over San Francisco in Week 6.

    Emerson's third-quarter pick set up a short field for the offense, but the Browns couldn't capitalize. His first NFL interception was part of an impressive defensive effort, as Cleveland limited the 49ers to season lows in points and yards (215). Emerson has played all 22 games since being drafted in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
