Here is a wrap-up of the injury situation for the Cleveland Browns heading into this week's game against the :
- The statuses of TE Jordan Cameron and OLB Barkevious Mingo are better this week since they were at least limited participants in practice all week. Last week, that happened with DE Desmond Bryant and DL John Hughes, but only Bryant ended up playing. Head coach Mike Pettine said that the bye week drawing near does not factor in to whether or not they play Cameron or Mingo -- if they are able to play, they will.
- Besides RB Ben Tate, the rest of the Browns were full participants in practice, so we should see the return of DL John Hughes this week. Hughes is notorious for his ability to defend the run, so hopefully that helps Cleveland's run defense out.
- The Ravens will likely be without DT Timmy Jernigan, but the second-round rookie has only been a depth player to this point. CB Lardarius Webb was inactive for the first two weeks after being listed as questionable. Now that he's listed as probable, expect him to make his 2014 debut with the Ravens. Webb is the team's No. 1 cornerback. RB Bernard Pierce is battling through a thigh injury but he won't miss the game.
