Player News - Browns

Date: Team: Pos:

Antonio Callaway caught 2-of-2 targets for 39 yards in the Browns' Week 10 win over the Falcons.

Callaway also made his presence felt with some down-field blocking on Nick Chubb's 92-yard touchdown. With the Browns expanding the target tree under new OC Freddie Kitchens, Callaway's WR5 value is even more tenuous.
Nov 11 - 5:46 PM

Duke Johnson caught 4-of-4 targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in the Browns' Week 10 win over the Falcons, adding three carries for 15 additional yards.

Johnson's 11-yard touchdown in the third quarter was a third down checkdown from Baker Mayfield. Johnson now has 17 touches over Freddie Kitchens' two games as offensive coordinator. His previous two-game high for 2018 was 11. Johnson will have an excellent Week 12 matchup in the Bengals when the Browns come off bye.
Nov 11 - 5:41 PM

David Njoku caught 1-of-1 targets for 18 yards in the Browns' Week 10 win over the Falcons.

It was a beautiful day for the Browns' offense, but Baker Mayfield was spreading the ball around as Nick Chubb dominated on the ground. It was just the second time in seven Mayfield starts that Njoku was held below 50 yards. Njoku will be a risky TE1 against the Bengals when the Browns come off bye in Week 12.
Nov 11 - 5:38 PM

Jarvis Landry caught 2-of-5 targets for 22 yards in the Browns' Week 10 win over the Falcons.

Baker Mayfield was on fire, but Landry ended up having his second-worst game of the season. Mayfield was spreading the ball around, finding nine different players for completions. The Browns were also riding their run game, rolling up 211 yards. Landry now has just eight grabs for 72 yards in two games since Freddie Kitchens took over as offensive coordinator. He will return from the Browns' Week 11 bye as a mid-range WR2 against the Bengals' burnable defense.
Nov 11 - 4:24 PM

Nick Chubb rushed 20 times for 176 yards and a touchdown in the Browns' Week 10 win over the Falcons, adding three receptions for 33 additional yards and a second score.

Chubb was already having a big game before he took a stretch zone handoff from the Browns' own eight-yard line midway through the third quarter. Chubb hit the hole, received some nice blocking from Antonio Callaway and then out-ran the Falcons' entire defense for a 92-yard score. Chubb has more than justified the Browns' decision to trade Carlos Hyde, averaging 102 yards rushing in four games since becoming starter. He is a big-play machine who can handle big workloads. Chubb will be an RB1 against the Bengals when the Browns come off bye in Week 12.
Nov 11 - 4:10 PM

Baker Mayfield completed 17-of-20 passes for 216 yards and three touchdowns in the Browns' 28-16, Week 10 win over the Falcons.

After a promising outing in new OC Freddie Kitchens' Week 9 debut, Mayfield had his best game of the season against the Falcons. The No. 1 overall pick completed his first 13 passes as the Browns got out to a 21-10 third quarter lead. The Browns were using some exotic formations, including three-back, full-house backfields. Mayfield really spread the ball around, with nine different players catching passes. He was accurate and decisive. The Browns go on bye for Week 11 before returning against the Bengals' sieve-like defense in Week 12.
Nov 11 - 3:52 PM

David Njoku (ribs, knee) is active for Week 10 against the Falcons.

Njoku's status was never in doubt. Inactive for the Browns are QB Drew Stanton, WR Da’Mari Scott, DB Juston Burris, OL Desmond Harrison, TE Pharaoh Brown, DL Chad Thomas and DL Carl Davis.
Nov 11 - 11:35 AM

Browns CB Denzel Ward (questionable, hip) is expected to play Week 10 against the Falcons.

Ward's hip bothered him in last week's loss to Kansas City, but he's going to gut it out against the Falcons on Sunday. Even at less than full strength, he'll be a tough matchup for Julio Jones. The rookie has been spectacular this year, earning PFF's No. 9 coverage grade among cornerbacks.
Nov 11 - 8:10 AM

David Njoku (questionable, ribs/knee) is expected to play Week 10 against the Falcons.

Njoku saw his workload scaled back at practice this week while battling knee and rib injuries, though there was never much doubt about his status for Sunday. The second-year tight end hasn't exactly been Mr. Consistency, but at a thin fantasy position, he's still in play as a starter in most formats.
Nov 11 - 8:07 AM

Browns CB Denzel Ward (hip) is questionable for Week 10 against the Falcons.

Ward returned to a limited practice on Thursday and appears to be on track to play. With LB Joe Schobert (hamstring) also seemingly on track to play, the Browns defense will be a bit healthier this Sunday.
Nov 9 - 12:54 PM

Browns LB Joe Schobert (hamstring) is questionable for Week 10 against the Falcons.

Schobert seems likely to return following a limited week of practice. The Browns' defense is banged up, but getting Schobert and CB Denzel Ward (hip) back is a big boost.
Nov 9 - 12:53 PM

David Njoku (ribs, knee) is questionable for Week 10 against the Falcons.

Njoku has been limited this week in practice, but there does not seem to be much concern about his availability. He will be a name to watch on Sunday morning, but he should be good to go as a mid-range TE1 against the Falcons.
Nov 9 - 12:46 PM

David Njoku (ribs, knee) remained "limited" on Thursday.

Njoku has cleared 50 yards in all but one of Baker Mayfield's starts. He's a mid-range TE1 for a solid matchup with the Falcons.
Nov 8 - 4:38 PM

Browns CB Denzel Ward (hip) returned to practice on Thursday.

Ward exited Week 9 with a hip injury but his presence at Thursday's practice suggests he's already on the mend. If he suits up for Sunday's game with Atlanta, it would be a downgrade for Julio Jones.
Nov 8 - 1:10 PM

Browns CB Denzel Ward (hip) didn't practice on Wednesday.

The stud rookie suffered the injury in last week's loss to Kansas City. Already among the league's top cover corners, losing Ward for any amount of time would be a big blow to Cleveland's secondary. The Browns just claimed Phillip Gaines off waivers from Buffalo, perhaps as an insurance policy for Ward.
