Browns QB Jake Delhomme's ankle injury has ostensibly caused some sportsbooks to take down the Kansas City-Cleveland line.

Delhomme, according to a report in The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer by PFW Browns correspondent Tony Grossi, was wearing a walking boot Tuesday. Seneca Wallace will start if Delhomme can't go.

Per, the game is still up at the Las Vegas Hilton, with the Browns a one-point favorite and the Over-Under 38. Cleveland has been favored by as many as three points at some Las Vegas sportsbooks, per a scan of's line movement, but the Chiefs' surprising win vs. San Diego Monday makes the prospect of Cleveland being favored by a field goal on Sunday rather unlikely. Couple this with any uncertainty about the Browns' QB situation, and Cleveland will be a very slight favorite, if favored at all, in Week Two. Certainly, this is a ine to watch.
