Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Chargers. Derek Willies, who was slated to step in as the #3 WR, was added to the injury report Friday and is listed as questionable with a shoulder. His absence would leave Rod Streater as Cleveland’s #3 WR.
Browns WR Rashard Higgins has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL and is considered week-to-week, HC Hue Jackson said Monday. Higgins' absence will leave undrafted rookie Derrick Willies as Cleveland's #3 WR behind Jarvis Landry and Antonio Callaway. Look for Landry, Callaway and David Njoku to dominate targets.
The Browns selected WR Rashard Higgins in the 5th round, the 4th WR they've drafted. Higgins posted a massive 96-1,750-17 line at Colorado State in 2014 but dropped to 74-1,061-8 this past year. He really hurt his draft stock by running a 4.64-second 40-yard dash at 6'1, 196 pounds. Higgins' SPARQ score is in the 4th percentile among WRs, making him a long shot to emerge as a fantasy asset. There's at least opportunity in Cleveland, though, and Higgins is at least a good route runner with reliable hands.
