Browns DT Larry Ogunjobi (biceps) is active for today's game against the Panthers. Ogunjobi is just a low-level IDP candidate.

The Browns have ruled CB Denzel Ward (concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. DT Larry Ogunjobi (biceps) is questionable. He left last week's game early, opened the practice week on the sideline and then returned for a pair of limited workouts. The matchup's nothing special, though. Ogunjobi's not worth waiting for in most IDP leagues. We'll update his status Sunday morning anyway.

Browns S Damarious Randall (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Texans. He popped up on the injury report after a limited Friday practice, but HC Gregg Williams indicated the move was more precautionary than reason for worry. Play Randall as you normally would in IDP lineups.

Browns S Damarious Randall is questionable for Sunday's game at Houston after a hamstring issue limited his practice Friday. Randall didn't appear on the injury report the previous 2 days, so it seems the injury arose Friday. HC Gregg Williams said he's not particularly worried and indicated the limitation was precautionary. We'll check Randall's status Sunday morning.

Browns CB Denzel Ward (hip), LB Joe Schobert (hamstring) and S Damarious Randall (groin) are active for today’s game against the Falcons. All are fine to use as planned in IDP lineups.

Browns TE David Njoku (knee, ribs) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. The injuries add some risk to his outlook, but Njoku remains safely inside TE1 territory in the Week 10 Rankings.

The Browns expect CB Denzel Ward (hip) to play today against the Falcons, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He returned for limited practices Thursday and Friday after missing Wednesday. Ward should be set to see plenty of Falcons WR Julio Jones.

The Browns expect TE David Njoku to play against the Falcons today, despite knee and rib injuries that have him questionable. That's barring a setback to either issue in pregame, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We'll confirm Njoku's status when inactives come out later this morning.

Browns MLB Joe Schobert (hamstring), S Damarious Randall (groin) and CB Denzel Ward (hip) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Schobert put in limited practices all week after missing the past 3 games. Randall got a full practice in Friday after limited workouts the previous 2 days. Ward returned to limited practices the past 2 days after sitting out Wednesday. Randall looks like the safest bet to play. We'll see about all 3 Sunday morning.

Browns TE David Njoku (knee, ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Falcons after a limited week of practice. We’ve heard nothing to suggest that he’s in danger of missing this one, but his status will be worth checking on Sunday morning.

Browns LB Jamie Collins missed Wednesday's practice with a sprained ankle but is expected to return Thursday, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. We'll keep an eye on Collins' status heading into the weekend.

Browns MLB Joe Schobert returned to a limited practice Wednesday for the 1st time since he suffered the hamstring injury back in Week 6. Schobert then missed the past 3 games. We'll see if he's ready to play Sunday against the Falcons. If he is, Schobert and Jamie Collins will be the Cleveland LBs to use. Browns S Damarious Randall also put in a limited practice Wednesday after missing the loss to the Chiefs with a groin injury. Randall has dealt with multiple injuries throughout the season but practiced just once over the past 2 weeks (Friday of Week 8). Randall's Wednesday participation seems to put him on track to play against the Falcons, which should also put him in IDP lineups.

The Browns have placed LB Christian Kirksey on IR because of the hamstring injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. That ends his season and could leave the Browns without 2 of their starting LBs for the Week 10 clash with Atlanta. MLB Joe Schobert has missed the past 3 games with his own hamstring injury. We'll see if he can make it back to the field this week, but he has yet to even practice since suffering the injury. Jamie Collins should be a safe bet for full playing time the rest of the way. Kirksey started at Schobert's middle spot against K.C., with rookie Genard Avery on the weak side. Avery looks like a good bet for more than 50% playing time the rest of the way now and could stick in the 60-75% range -- especially if Schobert remains out. Tanner Vallejo replaced Kirksey after last Sunday's injury and would likely enter the Week 10 lineup if Schobert sits again. Avery's worth a pickup in many IDP leagues this week, bringing pass-rushing upside to go with his recent playing-time upswing.

Browns LB Christian Kirksey left Sunday's loss to the Chiefs with a hamstring injury and did not return. That's a new injury for a guy who missed 2 games earlier this season while dealing with shoulder and ankle issues. Cleveland has also been without MLB Joe Schobert since Week 6. We'll see about the status of Kirksey and Schobert for Sunday's matchup with the Falcons. A Week 11 bye waits on the other side.

Browns CB Denzel Ward left Sunday’s game against he Chiefs early with a hip injury and has been ruled out. We’ll see about his status for a Week 10 meeting with Atlanta. A Week 11 bye could factor into the decision

Browns S Damarious Randall is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported he would be a "healthy scratch," but Randall missed practice all week with a groin injury. We'll see about his status for a Week 10 home date with the Falcons. Randall has been enjoying a solid season in both real-life and fantasy terms.

Browns WRs Antonio Callaway (ankle) and Rashard Higgins (knee) are active for today’s game against the Chiefs. We’ll be curious to see how these guys and Damion Ratley are deployed behind Jarvis Landry. One or 2 of them could have a nice fantasy day in what figures to be a pass-heavy game from the Browns as they try to keep up with Patrick Mahomes and Co.

The Browns believe WRs Antonio Callaway (ankle) and Rashard Higgins (knee) will be able to play today against the Chiefs, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Both will test things out pregame but should be in the lineup. Neither looks like a strong fantasy option for Week 9, but Higgins is worth a stash in a situation that could quickly find him the #2 WR behind Jarvis Landry.

The Browns have ruled MLB Joe Schobert (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. It'll be his 3rd straight missed game. S Damarious Randall (groin), meanwhile, is questionable once again. That marks the 2nd straight week and 5th time this season. Randall missed all 3 days of practice this week, though, which is different. We'll check his status Sunday morning. You should make alternate IDP plans, though -- especially given a Chiefs matchup that hasn't been helpful to IDP scoring.

Browns WRs Antonio Callaway (ankle) and Rashard Higgins (knee) are listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Chiefs. Higgins was limited in practice this week, while Callaway was added to the injury report on Thursday and sidelined on Friday. We’ll find out these guys’ statuses by noon ET on Sunday, but it’s a situation to avoid in Week 9 fantasy lineups.
