Here is a wrap-up of the injury situation for the Cleveland Browns heading into this week's game against the Oakland Raiders:
- The only two players ruled out are DE Phil Taylor and WR Rodney Smith.
- I don't anticipate that DE Billy Winn will be back, but because of how he felt during Friday's practice, head coach Mike Pettine has called him a game-time decision. The great news is that NT Ahtyba Rubin practiced in full on Friday and will start against the Raiders. Any depth we get back on the line is a boost.
- CB K'Waun Williams has been cleared to return from his concussion, but we don't know who the third cornerback will be between he and CB Justin Gilbert.
- Not shown on the injury list is C Nick McDonald. He was added Saturday as probable because he's been activated from the non-football injury list. There's a chance he could start at center against Oakland.
- The Raiders are hurting a bit defensively. They lost starting DE LaMar Woodley and backup S Usama Young for the season during last week's game against the Cardinals. Several other defensive players, including CB Carlos Rogers and DE Justin Tuck, are a bit banged up and are questionable for Sunday's game.
