CLEVELAND (WKBN) – The Cleveland Browns home preseason game was delayed over an hour due to inclement weather but now is excepted to kickoff at 8:46 pm.

Both teams will participate in a 10 minute warmup period before the game will begin.

Just before the scheduled kickoff at 7:30 p.m., a message flashed on the scoreboard at Cleveland Browns Stadium that read, “Severe weather is approaching. Please seek shelter immediately” as the rain poured on empty seats.

According to the latest update on the Browns broadcast, head coach Kevin Stefanksi still plans on Deshuan Watson and other starters to take the field when the extensive rain delay ends.
