|OLB||Jamie Collins Sr.||Concussion||DNP||DNP||DNP||OUT|
- For the second week in a row, only one player is ruled out for the Browns: OLB Jamie Collins (concussion). James Burgess will fill his spot again.
- Now, for the news you’ve all been waiting for: DE Myles Garrett (ankle) and DT Danny Shelton (calf) are both listed as questionable. Shelton did not practice on Friday, but the belief is that his MRI results came back good for him to only be listed as questionable. For Garrett, it was a good sign that he practiced (limited) two straight days. The Browns go with a deep defensive line rotation, so both guys can play without having too heavy of a workload.
- UPDATE: Per Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer, Garrett will probably not play on Sunday, as the team will err on the side of caution for one more week.
- Two other players are questionable for Cleveland: WR Sammie Coates (hamstring) and TE Randall Telfer (knee). Coates’ whole game relies on speed, so if his hamstring isn’t fully recovered yet, I don’t see him playing this week.
- For the Bengals, three players are ruled out: WR John Ross (knee), TE Tyler Eifert (back), and OLB Jordan Evans (hamstring). Eifert is their best weapon outside of A.J. Green, Ross is their first-round pick, and Evans is a reserve linebacker.
- The other injury to watch is starting RG Trey Hopkins (knee), who was limited all week in practice. He is listed as questionable, but Friday morning, he said he felt like it might be another week before he sees game action again:
