  Browns | Friday injury report for Week 8    Fri Oct 24, 05:34 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Rodney Smith (hamstring) and DT Phil Taylor (knee) have been ruled out for Week 8. DE Billy Winn (quadriceps) and SS Jim Leonhard (ankle) are listed as questionable, while DE Desmond Bryant (wrist), DT Ahtyba Rubin (ankle), LB Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) and CB K'Waun Williams (concussion) are listed as probable. Leonhard, Smith and Taylor did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 24. Winn was limited during practice, while Bryant, Mingo Rubin and Williams fully participated in practice. Joe Thomas (non-injury) also participated in practice and is no longer on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Rubin (and maybe Billy Winn) will return this week and help a run defense that couldn't stop Denard Robinson last week. This dampens the enthusiasm around playing Darren McFadden this week just a bit.
