Cleveland Browns Continue to Deal With Injuries to Key Players


As the Cleveland Browns prepare to take on the Seattle Seahawks at home on Sunday, the injuries continue to pile up.

The status of cornerback Joe Haden is still up in the air, and he did not practice on Wednesday. Other players who didn’t practice include linebacker Scott Fujita, who was sent home after experiencing the effects of his concussion and won’t play on Sunday. Offensive lineman Artis Hicks has a back injury, Peyton Hillis is nursing his sore left hamstring, and safety Ray Ventrone is dealing with a hamstring injury of his own.

Other players who were limited participants in practice include center Alex Mack (illness), right tackle Tony Pashos (ankle), and cornerback Buster Skrine.

One of the Browns’ biggest issues going into the season was a lack of depth, and what they do have in terms of depth has been tested often. More so, Hillis and Haden are key players that the Browns rely on to win games and without them, it’s going to be especially difficult winning much of anything.

It still hasn’t been determined who exactly will be missing Sunday’s game, which is the good news in this situation. We’ll continue to monitor these injuries as the week progresses but right now, the Seahawks are a much tougher match-up.
