Quick Hitters

  • The big injury news for the Browns on Sunday is that starting RG Wyatt Teller is out with an ankle injury. He didn’t practice all week, and if it’s an ankle sprain, he could conceivably miss the rest of the regular season. Hopefully Chris Hubbard can play well enough in his place, at least for these next two games.
  • The other player ruled out for Cleveland is starting FS Andrew Sendejo, who has a concussion. With Sendejo out, Sheldrick Redwine will get the start there. S Tedric Thompson, recently claimed off waivers, could see some reps too.
  • There is some good news, though: CB Denzel Ward, TE Austin Hooper, and WR KhaDarel Hodge are all expected to return to action. The return of Ward is particularly big for the Browns because it also allows Kevin Johnson to move back to the nickel spot.
  • TE David Njoku didn’t practice on Friday with a knee injury, but head coach Kevin Stefanski said it was precautionary and it sounds like they expect him to play.
  • The Giants have fewer players on their injury list, but it’s still some key players. Daniel Jones might be active as a backup, but Colt McCoy will start. The team’s best cornerback, James Bradberry, was just placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. CB Darnay Holmes, the team’s rookie nickelback, will also miss his second straight game.
