Joshua Cribbs Earns POTW Award

All you need is a couple of game-changing plays to get some recognition in the NFL. Browns kick returner Joshua Cribbs was the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week after having returns of 65 and 53 yards on consecutive returns. The first one looked to be a touchdown, but the referees ruled that he had stepped out of bounds. On the second was, Cribbs was taken down by the kicker.

"It's a happy week for me and I'm going to build this momentum onto the Carolina game," said Cribbs. "I have that niche [as a kickoff returner] now and I'm going to try to dominate in the league, not just my team."

Browns Injury Report: All eleven players are listed as questionable.
  1. Leigh Bodden and Gary Baxter: Neither player practiced on Wednesday. Bodden still thinks he could play this week, but Crennel says that his ankle it still stiff. Baxter is still recovering from his pectoral injury, but he'll probably wait until after the bye week to return. The same could be said for Bodden if the Browns don't want to risk things.
  2. Rest on Report: Reuben Droughns (shoulder), Joe Jurevicius (ribs), Orpheus Roye (shoulder), Kellen Winslow (knee), Willie McGinest (calf), Brian Russell (elbow), Nick Eason (ankle), Justin Hamilton (ankle) and Travis Wilson (knee).
  3. Other: Don't worry too much about the injuries, as they are just precautionary for the most part. Droughns, Jurevicius, Roye, Winslow, McGinest, and Russell should be fine. As far as the other ones are concerned, it's up in the air.
This week's game will be on CBS at 1:00 PM EST. The game will be announced by Kevin Harlan and Rich Gannon, and the game will not be in HDTV.
