New England Patriots safety Patrick Chung, who missed last week's win over the Vikings with a knee injury, has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game at the Browns.

With Chung missing his second straight game, Brandon Meriweather and James Sanders are likely to play most, if not all, of the snaps.

Rookie Sergio Brown is third on the safety depth chart.

The Browns' leading receiver is tight end Benjamin Watson (30 catches), and with a safety a strong possibility to be in coverage against him, Chung's absence affects that possible matchup.
