Not everything went according to plan for the Cleveland Browns in preseason Week 1. These five players saw their stocks go down against the Redskins.

A lot of things went right the Cleveland Browns during their 30-10 win against the Washington Redskins at FirstEnergy Stadium Aug. 8.

Notably, Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi retuned a punt 86-yards for a touchdown, giving the juco-product the upper hand at landing a spot on the final 53-man roster.

But now everyone had their stocks go up, as these six players did. These players went the opposite direction and saw their stocks take a dip.

1. Eric Kush, RG

Eric Kush got the start for the Cleveland Browns at right guard, and despite the fact Baker Mayfield led an opening touchdown drive, the veteran lineman made some mistakes.

On the series, Kush horrible on two plays, getting bull rushed on a screen attempt and then allowing pressure up the middle on pass Mayfield actually completed.

If the Browns are going to continue allowing pressure up the middle, then it doesn’t matter if Paul Warfieldreturns in his prime to play opposite of Odell Beckham Jr. Mayfield will be pressured andf forced into mistakes.

After watching this clip from’s Jake Burns, you’ve got to shake your head and wonder what gives with Austin Corbett?

With a “redshirt” season under his belt, how could the guard situation have even gotten to this point? The job was there for the taking, and Corbett didn’t grab it. There’s no other way to explain it considering he didn’t start this game.

Kush noticeably allowed the pressure that resulted in Dontrell Hilliard‘s goal-line fumble.

Not a great game for the right guard spot, a position that still looks to be unanswered after preseason Week 1.
