General News (Wed Oct 1): partially participated in Wednesday's practice.

General News (Tue Sep 30): returned to practice Tuesday, Sept. 30, for the first time since spraining his right knee in the season opener Sept. 7. It means that Tate is likely to return to action in Week 5 against the Tennessee Titans. He's expected to return to the starting lineup, too, despite the solid play of Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell in his absence. "That's what we brought Tate here for, to be the starter," running backs coach Wilbert Montgomery said last week. "He's the No. 1 running back in this offense. Right now, you can say we miss him. We miss his experience. We miss his leadership with the group. Speaking from that standpoint, we'll be open arms and welcome to have Ben back into the fold." Tate was wearing a brace on his knee while doing individual drills Tuesday.

Week 5: at Tennessee Titans

Browns | Ben Tate to be limited (Wed Oct 1, 12:47 PM) - Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate (knee) will be limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 1.

Our View: Tate should start as long as he gets a full practice in by the end of the week, and he gets a terrific matchup against the Titans that should make him a solid RB2 with some risk of rust from his layoff.

Browns | Ben Tate returns to practice (Tue Sep 30, 01:11 PM) - Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate (knee) returned to practice Tuesday, Sept. 30, for the first time since spraining his right knee in the season opener Sept. 7. It means that Tate is likely to return to action in Week 5 against the Tennessee Titans. He's expected to return to the starting lineup, too, despite the solid play of RBs Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell in his absence. “That’s what we brought Tate here for, to be the starter,” running backs coach Wilbert Montgomery said last week. “He’s the No. 1 running back in this offense. Right now, you can say we miss him. We miss his experience. We miss his leadership with the group. Speaking from that standpoint, we’ll be open arms and welcome to have Ben back into the fold.” Tate was wearing a brace on his knee while doing individual drills Tuesday.

Our View: Now the fun begins. Will Tate get his starting job back when he's been outplayed by both West and Crowell? That looks like the plan right now, but he had better play better (and stay healthy), or the team can just turn things back over to the rookie duo.

Browns | Ben Tate could start upon return (Wed Sep 24, 10:35 PM) - Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate (knee) is expected to return to a starting role when he is healthy enough to play, according to running backs coach Wilbert Montgomery. However, RB Isaiah Crowell seems destined for a bigger role. 'That's what we brought Tate here for, to be the starter,' Montgomery said. 'He's the No. 1 running back in this offense. Right now, you can say we miss him. We miss his experience. We miss his leadership with the group. Speaking from that standpoint, we'll be open arms and welcome to have Ben back into the fold.'

Browns | Ben Tate may not start upon return (Mon Sep 22, 05:20 PM) - Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate may not regain his starting job when he returns from his injury because RBs Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell have performed well, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Pettine said the team is eager to have Tate back on the field.

Our View: Should anyone be surprised by this? Tate is one of the most injury prone players in the league, and he's been outplayed by both West and Crowell. It will be interesting to see how things shake out with this trio of backs when Tate is ready to go.

Browns | Week 3 Inactives (Sun Sep 21, 11:41 AM) - The Cleveland Browns have declared RB Ben Tate, DL Eric Martin, TE Gerell Robinson, DL Ish Kitchen, WR LaRon Byrd, CB Pierre Desir, DB Robert Nelson inactive for Week 3.
