  Browns | Jordan Cameron won't play in Week 9    Fri Oct 31, 12:50 PM

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (concussion) didn't practice all week, and he won't be available to play in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He also missed two games in 2012 and one last year due to concussions. TEs Jim Dray and Gary Barnidge will carry the load without Cameron playing. Dray has nine catches for 118 yards and a touchdown this year, while Barnidge has five grabs for 54 yards.

  Browns | Jordan Cameron may be out a while    Wed Oct 29, 03:20 PM

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (concussion) still hasn't been cleared to practice and the timetable for his return is unknown.

Footballguys view: A heads up for fantasy owners here. Speculation is that he may miss at least the next two games after suffering a concussion in Week 8. It was his third concussion in about two years.

  Browns | Jordan Cameron will miss practice    Wed Oct 29, 12:56 PM

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (concussion) will not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29, because he is still going through the concussion protocol.

Footballguys view: We'll have to see if Cameron can practice on Friday. He'll need to be cleared from the concussion protocol before he's able to play. Cameron WOULD be a nice starter against the Bucs this week, but check back to see if he can play.

  Browns | Isaiah Crowell needs to protect ball    Tue Oct 28, 02:57 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell could be on the field more if he could protect the ball better, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Pettine said part of the team's decision to stick with Ben Tate late in Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders was because of Crowell's fumble issues.

Footballguys view: Crowell is incredibly talented as a runner, but it doesn't matter if he can't hang onto the rock. We'll see if the rookie can impress enough in practice during the week to get more playing time. Pettine added that he would like Crowell to get more touches this week.

  Browns | Isaiah Crowell sees little action    Mon Oct 27, 11:50 AM

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell had one rush for one yard in Week 8, while RB Terrance West had seven carries for 11 yards. Beat writer Tony Grossi speculated that West must have had better performances in practice than Crowell in the week leading up to the game.

Footballguys view: Crowell is incredibly talented, but he's got to take care of the rock and do a better job in practice if he wants to play.

  Browns | Jordan Cameron will not return    Sun Oct 26, 06:27 PM

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (concussion) suffered a concussion in the Week 8 game against the Oakland Raiders and he will not return.

Footballguys view: Cameron's season continues to be a disappointment for his owners. This week he was finally getting on track before he went out with this injury. Tampa Bay is up next week in a game that Cameron's owners probably did not want to miss, as they gave up six catches to Chase Ford of the Vikings today.

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (head) left the Week 8 game against the Oakland Raiders in the second quarter after an apparent head injury. He was shaken up after a long reception and taken to the locker room.

Footballguys view: Cameron was coming on and made a tough catch on the play that knocked him out.

The Cleveland Browns have declared CB Pierre Desir, CB Robert Nelson, OT Vinston Painter, WR Rodney Smith, DE Phil Taylor, DE Billy Winn, RB Glenn Winston inactive for Week 8.

Footballguys view: Athyba Rubin is at least active to help a Browns run defense that has been too easy to run through for competition as of late.

  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.

  Browns | Not naming starter at center    Thu Oct 23, 02:54 PM

Cleveland Browns OG John Greco started at center in Week 7, but head coach Mike Pettine has not said if Greco will stay at the position or if C Nick McDonald will receive the starting job.

Footballguys view: The Browns averaged 146 yards rushing per game with Mack in at center. Last week against Jacksonville, the Browns only managed 69 yards. Without Mack, the wheels for the ground game fell off.

  Browns | Johnny Manziel could play in Week 8    Tue Oct 21, 02:05 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could see some action in Week 8 against the Oakland Raiders, according to head coach Mike Pettine. However, Pettine said Monday, Oct. 20, that QB Brian Hoyer is still firmly entrenched as the team's starting quarterback. Hoyer completed a career-low 39 percent of his attempts against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 7 and threw for 215 yards with no touchdowns and an interception. He has completed only 41.3 percent of his passes in the last two weeks. Pettine blamed Hoyer's poor performance on the team's inability to run and set up play-action.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to be alert to this situation. The Manziel era is coming soon for the Browns. The 2014 first-round pick will get his shot as the starter if Hoyer continues to struggle.

  Browns | Terrance West benched    Tue Oct 21, 09:37 AM

Cleveland Browns RB Terrance West was benched Sunday, Oct. 19, after failing to pick up a first down in two short-yardage situations. He had room to run on both carries but danced in the hole on one carry and ran into his lineman on the other.

Footballguys view: West is not the best rookie back on the Browns roster--even though he was their second-round pick. Isaiah Crowell has been much more impressive this season, and he could continue to be featured behind Ben Tate.

  Browns | CLE re-evaluating RB rotation    Tue Oct 21, 09:36 AM

Cleveland Browns RBs Ben Tate, Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West were held to 69 yards on 33 carries in Week 7, and head coach Mike Pettine suggested a change was coming for the trio. 'We'll have a discussion this week as to how to best rotate those guys,' Pettine said.

Footballguys view: The Browns were running the ball effectively...until Sunday against the Jaguars. We'll see if they can get the train back on the tracks.

  Browns | Brian Hoyer struggled in Week 7    Mon Oct 20, 06:03 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer completed only 39 percent of his passes in the team's Week 7 game, which is the worst completion percentage by any quarterback this season.

Footballguys view: Let's face it, Hoyer is no long-term answer for the Browns. We should see Johnny Manziel as the starter soon enough. Hoyer needs to turn things around quickly, or he's going to get the boot.

  Browns | Brian Hoyer still starting QB    Mon Oct 20, 04:33 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer is still the team's starting quarterback even though he struggled in Week 7, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners who can carry that third quarterback should go ahead and pick up Johnny Manziel now. It was only a matter of time before he saw the field this year. Hoyer hasn't been blowing anybody away with his production, and Manziel could be the jolt this passing game needs. And oh yeah....it's not that long before Josh Gordon comes back.

Cleveland Browns C Alex Mack (leg) will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery to fix a broken left fibula Thursday, Oct. 16. Mack was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Oct. 17. Mack could also be dealing with ligament damage in his left, although it hasn't officially been disclosed. OT John Greco will slide from right guard to center in Mack's absence, and the team promoted OG Ryan Seymour from the practice squad to take Mack's spot on the roster.

Footballguys view: We'll see how much this affects the Browns top-notch running game. Mack is one of the best two of three centers in the game, but the whole Browns line has been playing well this year.
