Cleveland Browns News

Baker Mayfield, Not 100 percent

Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski acknowledged Mayfield is not 100 percent and is "pushing through" the ribs and chest injury he suffered Week 5 against the Colts, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Analysis: Mayfield was ineffective during a Week 6 loss to the Steelers, a performance that invited much speculation and second-guessing. He's thrown interceptions in four consecutive quarters and has a 64.7 rating over the previous two weeks. The Browns' coaching staff remains bullish on the quarterback, who needs to get through this week against the Bengals and Week 8 against the Raiders before a bye week gives him healing time.

Jarvis Landry, Good to go Week 7

Landry (hip/ribs) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Bengals, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Analysis: Landry created a stir earlier this week when he admitted that he's been playing through a broken rib since Oct. 11, but the injury won't keep him off the field. The wideout remained limited in practice throughout the week, which could be par for the course moving forward as the Browns look to limit the wear and tear on his body heading into gamedays. Coming off offseason hip surgery, Landry hasn't seemed to recapture top form just yet, as he's averaging four receptions for 53.1 yards per game through six contests.

David Njoku, Should get more work sans Hooper

Njoku is expected to handle an increased role Sunday against the Bengals after top tight end Austin Hooper was ruled out for the contest following an emergency appendectomy, Jake Trotter of reports.

Analysis: Since his return from injured reserve Week 5 following a three-game absence, Njoku has seen limited involvement behind Hooper, recording two receptions for 13 yards while playing only 34.9 percent of the Browns' offensive snaps in his first two games back in action. Meanwhile, fellow tight end Harrison Bryant has played 39.7 percent of the snaps during that two-week stretch, so he and Njoku may be headed for a fairly even timeshare this weekend in Cincinnati. Hooper's absence should still improve the overall outlooks for Njoku and Bryant, but the fantasy upside for both could be muted, given the likelihood they'll be splitting snaps.

Harrison Bryant, Work to pick up sans Hooper

Bryant is expected to handle an increased role Sunday against the Bengals after top tight end Austin Hooper was ruled out for the contest following an emergency appendectomy, Jake Trotter of reports.

Analysis: While the Browns had both Hooper and David Njoku available in the past two games, Bryant drew his two lowest offensive snap shares of the season, playing 40 and 37 percent of the snaps in Weeks 5 and 6, respectively. With Hooper out of the mix for at least one game, Bryant and Njoku will likely split time at the position, as neither dramatically exceeded the other in terms of snaps the past two weeks. Even with a decent matchup on tap, Bryant is still probably best suited for fantasy leagues that start two tight ends.

Donovan Peoples-Jones, Likely to remain returner

Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said Peoples-Jones "more than likely" will remain the team's primary kickoff returner, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Analysis: Peoples-Jones has been the primary returner on punts and kickoffs the last two weeks, although the coaching staff is looking for improved decision-making from the rookie. Special teams coordinator Mike Priefer told Jeff Risdon of USA Today that he'd like to see more from Peoples-Jones. In Pittsburgh last week, the Browns also deployed Dontrell Hilliard as a returner.
