Injury report for Browns vs. Patriots: Cleveland looking to get three starters back on defense

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns Scott R. Galvin-USA TODAY Sports

Here is the injury report for the Cleveland Browns’ Week 5 game against the New England Patriots:

Injury Notes

  • There are six players who are officially ruled out for the Browns: QB Josh McCown (shoulder), WR Corey Coleman (hand), TE Randall Telfer (ankle), TE Seth DeValve (knee), C Austin Reiter (knee), and C Cameron Erving (lung). Regarding why the team hasn’t placed Reiter on IR, it’s because they signed him off another team’s practice squad originally. When you do that, you must keep the player on your 53-man roster for a minimum of three weeks.
  • We're more concerned with the players listed as questionable: DE Carl Nassib (hand), CB Tramon Williams (shoulder), and SS Ibraheim Campbell (hamstring). Of the three players, Campbell is the most likely to play, because he was a full participant in Friday’s practice. It is unclear if he will start or not. Nassib also seems likely to return. Although he was limited all week, he’s basically at the point where he’ll just live with having a club on his hand. Williams was a limited participant in practice. His status is still up-in-the-air, but he still might be active but not play very much.
  • The Patriots have three players out: QB Jacoby Brissett, RB Brandon Bolden, and LB Shea McClellin. All three players are there for depth, but not having Bolden might hurt because starting RB LeGarrette Blount was a limited participant in practice all week as he’s dealing with a hip injury.
  • Other key players like OL Marcus Cannon, OL Joe Thuney, WR Julian Edelman, TE Rob Gronkowski, and LB Dont'a Hightower were limited all week in practice. However, New England has a history of using injury designations to the max, and all of those players are expected to start.
