So, what is the latest word on Jamal Lewis? Joe Jurevicius? Antwan Peek?
"(Antwan) Peek wore a boot for several weeks but played on Sunday. I know Jamal wants to go; he's doing everything he can so he can go."
"We'll try to manage Joe a little, limit his reps a little," Crennel said. "He wants to play. Later in the week we'll know what that prognosis is as well."
In other words, Crennel isn't telling us anything. With the bye week coming up, this could be the type of game where the Browns feel it wouldn't be worth risking Lewis' health against perhaps the worst run-stopping defenses in the league. Backup Jason Wright could start and have a 100-yard performance. On the same note though, it may be worth playing Lewis if he is indeed healthy, because we do want to win this football game, and he will be getting the following two weeks off anyway.
In case you guys missed it a few days ago, the Browns waived the one-bar wonder, punter Scott Player. That means that Dave Zastudil will return to action for the first time since Week 2. Taking Player's spot on the roster is defensive lineman Louis Leonard, who was waived by the St. Louis Rams last week after spending three weeks on the team's inactive list. Leonard is a 6-4, 330 pound rookie linemen that went undrafted this yea out of Fresno State.
Recap on the Browns vs. Patriots should be online tonight or tomorrow afternoon.
