The Browns’ injury report is out for this week and it appears as though Shawn Lauvao will again be unable to play this week, which means another glorious week of Oniel Cousins at right guard. He is currently listed as doubtful as he tries to come back from the ankle injury that has sidelined him for the start of the season. Brandon Weeden has been confirmed as out with the thumb injury he suffered last week. The news on Weeden is that he is ‘highly unlikely’ to need surgery and reports suggest he could be back as early as next week.
Athyba Rubin has been working to get back from his calf injury and is listed as questionable at this point, but most seem to expect that he will play. Quentin Groves is out with the ankle injury he suffered against the Ravens but it is not expected to hold him out longer than this week. Desmond Bryant and T.J. Ward are both listed as probable with a wrist and shoulder issue respectively.
Newly signed running back Willis McGahee is expected to play this week against the Vikings but the amount he will play remains up in the air at this point.
