|CB||Rashad Fenton||Foot / Ankle||DNP||LP||LP||QUESTIONABLE|
- As far as COVID-19 goes, the Cleveland Browns have everyone back, and no one new has landed on the list (knock on wood). That means we’ll see the return of CB Denzel Ward, CB Kevin Johnson, LG Joel Bitonio, and WR KhaDarel Hodge.
- The biggest injury we’re watching this week is with RT Jack Conklin. He left last week’s game with a hamstring injury, and didn’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday. He was a limited participant in Friday’s practice, which is a positive sign. However, that doesn’t mean he will play — we’ll have to find out how his leg feels on Saturday and leading up to gameday. He should be viewed as a true “questionable.”
- Also listed as questionable for the Browns are TE David Njoku (hamstring), TE Stephen Carlson (groin), and LB B.J. Goodson (shoulder). Njoku and Goodson followed the same practice pattern as Conklin. I’m optimistic about them playing, at least some reps against the Chiefs.
- The Chiefs have two players out: WR Sammy Watkins and LB Willie Gay. Watkins only had 37 catches for 421 yards and 2 touchowns this season; the Chiefs have a lot of good depth at the receiver position. Gay had been playing pretty well for the Chiefs’ defense.
- Three players are questionable for the Chiefs: RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, TE Deon Yelder, and CB Rashad Fenton. Edwards-Helaire was limited on Wednesday with the ankle/hip injury that kept him out of the final two regular season games, and he didn’t practice Thursday or Friday. Usually if a player is coming back at that position, you want them at full strength — so my guess is that he’ll be inactive on Sunday with RB Le’Veon Bell carrying the load.
