News you need to know
From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Oct 27): Cameron suffered a concussion in the Week 8 game against the Oakland Raiders and he did not return to action. He'll have to undergo the NFL concussion protocols before resuming football activities, putting his participation in this week's game in jeopardy.
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 27): Cameron was just getting going against the Raiders, and then he suffered a concussion on a huge hit when he still secured the catch. He has had concussions each of the last two years, so this could be an extended absence, stay tuned.
General News (Fri Oct 31): is out for this weekend's game.
General News (Wed Oct 29): did not practice on Wednesday. Cameron still hasn't been cleared to practice, and the timetable for his return is unknown. 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 a two-year span.
General News (Tue Oct 28): left the Week 8 game against the Oakland Raiders in the second quarter after a concussion. He was shaken up after a long reception and taken to the locker room. This is Cameron's third concussion in three years.
Week 9: vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Brian Hoyer (19/28 for 275 yards, one TD and zero interceptions passing vs. Oakland) avoided the hook last week as he led the Browns to a comfortable 23-13 win over the Raiders after his disastrous 16/41 for 215 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown performance in the loss to then-winless Jacksonville. Reports out of Cleveland indicate that pressure was mounting for Johnny Manziel to start after the 6-24 disaster in Jacksonville, but that strain has been alleviated now (for the time being). Andrew Hawkins had his long grind through various secondaries rewarded with a rare TD last week (nine targets for 7/88/1 receiving), while Taylor Gabriel (three for 2/60/0) also did some nice things for Hoyer. Jordan Cameron finally started rewarding his fantasy owners with a decent game (five for 3/40/0), but was then concussed and thrust into another injury rehab - and Cameron has a prior history of concussions, which may keep him out a considerable length of time, depending on the severity of this particular instance of brain trauma. Local reports indicate that Cameron may be forced to miss the next two games (this Sunday and then next Thursday's early game). Miles Austin continues to move the chains from time to time (two targets for 2/34/0 vs. Oakland last week). The Buccaneer's pass D has been atrocious this year with 306 net yards and five TDs given up to Joe Flacco two games back and then 24/42 for 235 yards, one TD and zero interceptions allowed to rookie Teddy Bridgewater last week (one sack for -6 yards generated by Tampa in that game). To date, they are ranked 30th in the NFL averaging 286.0 net passing yards allowed per game, with a whopping 16 pass TDs allowed vs. a mere four interceptions (tied for 23rd in the NFL) and a paltry 10 sacks (tied for 26th) generated to date. Yikes, that is horrid, friends. Also, the Buccaneers went into full rebuilding mode before the trade deadline on Tuesday, sending starting S Mark Barron to St. Louis for draft picks - they are tearing down the defense BEFORE then end of the season, with LB Jonathan Casillas also shipped off to New England. Double Yikes! Advantage, Cleveland.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 6 vs PIT (5 / 3 / 102 / 1 rec)
After a quiet performance in the first quarter of the season, Jordan Cameron busted out in a big way on Sunday. Cameron put up almost five points per target and was very close to scoring two touchdowns. On Cameron's first long catch, Brian Hoyer rolled out to the near sideline, and found Cameron wide open on the opposite side of the field. If Hoyer leads Cameron instead of throwing directly at him, it is an east six points for Cameron. Cameron's second touchdown was a perfectly placed ball by Hoyer to Cameron where Cameron simply ran past Cortez Allen on a post, and flashed his hands late so Allen could not knock the pass down. Cameron has yet to be redzone factor for the Browns because the Browns have been pounding the rock inside the ten. With Alex Mack out for the year with a broken fibula, the Browns may have less success running the ball inside the goal line. It is certainly a situation to monitor.
2014 Week 7 vs JAX (6 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Cameron made a number of impressive plays on poorly thrown passes from Brian Hoyer last week against the Steelers. Against the Jaguars he had just one catch, but he should have had a touchdown late in the second quarter. Hoyer wildly overthrew him when he was wide open in the end zone. Cameron's only reception of the game came late in the fourth quarter when the game had already been decided.
2014 Week 8 vs OAK (5 / 3 / 40 / 0 rec)
Jordan Cameron left Sunday's contest with a concussion and did not return. Cameron suffered the injury in the second quarter on a medium pass over the middle. Cameron made an incredible leaping catch, his body parallel to the ground, but was struck illegally by Raiders defensive back Brandian Ross. As Cameron got up, he had the lost, glazed look on his face that is common among those who suffer concussions. Given the fact that this is Cameron's third consecutive season with a concussion, it seems unlikely that Cameron will be in uniform next week. Given the putrid state of the Browns passing offense, Cameron does not really have a lot of value even when healthy. This is surely an ugly situation for fantasy owners, and finding other options rest of season at tight end may be advisable.
Latest NewsBrowns | 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. Our View: Cleveland plays again on Thursday night, so his owners should be making alternate plans at tight end for Week 10 too.

link to story 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.
