The Browns on Monday waived S Jermaine Whitehead. The starter went ranting on Twitter, including threatening people in his responses following Cleveland's loss to the Broncos. His ouster leaves room for Morgan Burnett to remain in the starting lineup even ever FS Damarious Randall returns. Randall missed the past 2 games with a hamstring injury, allowing Burnett to get back into the lineup. Burnett had been playing behind Whitehead since returning from his own injury. The Browns host Buffalo in Week 10.
The Browns might get S Morgan Burnett back for Monday night's game against the 49ers. Burnett returned to limited practices Thursday and Friday and then a full workout Saturday, coming off 2 games lost to a quad injury. He's officially questionable. If you're looking to use him in your IDP lineup, make sure Jermaine Whitehead is available as a fallback. CBs Greedy Williams and Denzel Ward are also questionable again with hamstring injuries. Neither has returned to practice yet, though, after missing the past 2 contests. Expect both to miss another game.
