Undrafted rookie free agent Darius Eubanks will start at linebacker for the Cleveland Browns on Sunday against Jacksonville in the wake of the team’s latest injury report on Friday. In that report, the Browns announced that linebacker Tank Carder is out and the man he initially replaced, Craig Robertson, is doubtful for the contest. Carder has been nursing a strained shoulder suffered during Sunday’s Steelers game. Robertson has been dealing with a knee sprain issue for the last two weeks and missed last week’s game. With the banged up linebackers, Eubanks will make the first start of his career. A 22-year-old out of Georgia Southern, he’s appeared in four games already for the Browns. He finished with four tackles in relief of Carder on Sunday. Eubanks was signed off Minnesota’s practice squad late in the offseason. He then was promoted from the practice squad in late October and has been elevated all the way up to starting linebacker. Coach Rob Chudzinski and others have praised his preparation so far. Other notes from the injury report: quarterback Jason Campbell is officially out, while defensive lineman Armonty Bryant and tight end MarQueis Gray are questionable.
