Browns CB Denzel Ward (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants. He put in limited practices all week after missing the past 3 games. Ward is a low-level fantasy option, and the Sunday night kickoff makes it risky to wait on him. We'll update his status Sunday evening, though.

Browns TE Austin Hooper (neck) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game vs. the Giants. He practiced all week, including a full workout of Friday, so expect him to play. Hooper has totaled just 8 catches on 11 targets over his last 4 games, though, and is just a TE2.

Browns TE Austin Hooper (neck) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. HC Kevin Stefanski said Hooper is "trending in right direction" to return for Sunday night's game against the Giants. He totaled just 8 catches in his last 4 games before missing last week's classic vs. Baltimore.

Browns TE Austin Hooper (neck) is inactive for tonight's game against the Ravens, as expected. Hooper's absence leaves the top TE spot to rookie Harrison Bryant, as well as extra snaps for TE David Njoku.

Browns TE Austin Hooper (neck) is not expected to play vs. the Ravens on Monday night, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. When Hooper missed 2 games earlier this season, TE Harrison Bryant caught 7 of 8 targets and TE David Njoku hauled in 3 of 6. Bryant is the preferred Hooper fill-in but doesn't reach TE1 status.

Browns TE Austin Hooper (neck) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Ravens. He missed his 2nd straight practice on Saturday, though, so he seems to be on the wrong side of questionable. We'll look for further updates on Hooper, but he shouldn't be in fantasy lineups now. His absence would leave TE duties to Harrison Bryant and David Njoku.

Browns TE Austin Hooper was added to the injury report on Friday with a neck and did not practice. He's now iffy for Monday night's game vs. the Ravens. Hooper's absence would leave TE duties to Harrison Bryant and David Njoku. Check back tomorrow for another update on the situation.

Browns S Ronnie Harrison will miss 4-6 weeks with the shoulder injury that knocked him out on the 1st play of Sunday's win over the Jaguars. That leaves Karl Joseph to step back into the lineup for Sunday's matchup with Tennessee. Joseph opened the season starting next to Andrew Sendejo before Harrison displaced him. Joseph provided little fantasy value during his starting stint.

The Browns expect to activate DE Myles Garrett off the COVID list Wednesday, which would make him eligible to return for Sunday's game against the Titans. Garrett missed the past 2 contests but should obviously return to IDP lineups going forward. He trails Rams DE Aaron Donald by just 0.5 for the NFL sack lead.

The Browns expect lead CB Denzel Ward to miss "a few weeks" with a calf strain he suffered in Sunday's win over the Eagles, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports. That leaves Cleveland without its top cover man and top pass rusher (DE Myles Garrette on COVID reserve) for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. The Browns defense still looks attractive, though, against a Jacksonville offense that hasn't topped 260 total yards since Week 9 and tossed 4 INTs to Pittsburgh in Week 11.

Browns S Ronnie Harrison escaped with only a bone bruise after leaving Sunday's game with a knee injury. According to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal, HC Kevin Stefanski says Harrison has a shot to face the Jaguars on Sunday. We'll see about his participation through the week.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said Monday that DE Myles Garrett will miss another game on the COVID list. That puts him out for another upside matchup against Jacksonville. Porter Gustin started in Garrett's place against the Eagles, got his most playing time since Week 3 and notched a QB hit. He'll be just a low-level option against the Jaguars, though.

Browns S Ronnie Harrison left Sunday's game against the Eagles with a knee injury and will not return. He got back onto the field briefly after originally suffering the injury but then left again.

Browns DE Myles Garrett will miss Sunday's game against the Eagles after testing positive for COVID-19. According to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, Garrett will be eligible to return 10 days from when he first showed symptoms. The situation also puts Garrett in question for Week 12. DE Porter Gustin figures to start in Garrett's place, with Adrian Clayborn likely to add snaps as well.

Browns RB Nick Chubb (knee) is officially active for today’s game against the Texans. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said that morning that Chubb will handle the bulk of the backfield work today. Get him back into fantasy lineups.

Browns RB Nick Chubb (knee) has been activated from IR and will return for Sunday's game vs. the Texans. Over the first 3 games of the season, Chubb averaged 17 carries and 1 target to Kareem Hunt's 13 carries and 3.7 targets. We're expecting a similar touch distribution tomorrow.

Browns TE Austin Hooper (appendectomy) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll take a streak of 3 straight games with 5 catches into Sunday’s contest vs. the Texans.

Browns RB Nick Chubb (knee) got on the practice field this week but hasn’t yet been activated from IR. HC Kevin Stefanski said Friday that he’ll meet with the team’s medical staff before deciding whether Chubb will return for this weekend’s game against the Texans. We should know his status by Saturday afternoon. Chubb will be worth getting back into fantasy lineups if he suits up. If not, Kareem Hunt will get another game as feature back.

Browns TE Austin Hooper (abdomen) put in a full practice on Wednesday. It's confirmation that he'll be back for this weekend's game against the Texans. With 5 catches in 3 straight games, he's earned TE1 status.
