Browns-Rams Injury Report: Rob Housler & Joe Haden Out for Cleveland

New, comments
Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Here is a wrap-up of the injury situation for the Cleveland Browns heading into this week's game against the St. Louis Rams:

  • The Browns have ruled out TE Rob Housler. Earlier this week, head coach Mike Pettine said that TE E.J. Bibbs might be active for the first time, but the issue is that he'll need to find a way to contribute on special teams. If Bibbs is active, it might just be for special teams only.

  • CB Joe Haden is still out as he remains in the concussion protocol. CB Pierre Desir will start for him again. FS Tashaun Gipson is doubtful, which technically means he has a 25% chance of playing. I do find it interesting that the team didn't just rule him out despite not practicing all week, so there might be a slight chance he actually suits up (maybe even as a backup).

  • ILB Craig Robertson returned to practice this week and is questionable. The coaching staff seemed please with his progress this week, so it looks like he'll return to duty this week. A couple other defensive players are questionable this week.

  • The Rams will be without DE Chris Long, who is still nursing a knee injury he suffered in Week 5. The Rams did not conduct a practice on Thursday, so keep in mind that the participation column for Thursday below is basically useless.

The full injury and practice report for Cleveland vs. St. Louis is below.
