Cedric Tillman, WR CLE

Cedric Tillman out for Wild Card game

Browns WR Cedric Tillman (concussion) is out for Saturday's Wild Card game vs. the Texans. The rookie has been a full-time player for Cleveland over the second half of the season and averaged 5.0 targets over the last seven games. His snaps will go to some combination of WRs David Bell, James Proche, and Marquise Goodwin. But Tillman's targets might just be soaked up by WR Amari Cooper and TE David Njoku.

Browns WR Amari Cooper (heel) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Jets. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported less than an hour ago that Cooper was likely to play, but he reportedly didn't feel good enough in pregame warmups. His absence leaves Elijah Moore, Cedric Tillman, Marquise Goodwin, David Bell, and James Proche as Cleveland's five active WRs. We'd try to avoid the group against the Jets' top-ranked WR defense. TE David Njoku should get a target boost with Cooper out. QB Joe Flacco is no more than a low-end QB2 tonight considering the matchup and Cooper's absence.

Browns TE David Njoku (knee) is not listed on the final Week 14 injury report. He only got in a limited practice on Friday but is evidently good to go for this weekend’s game vs. the Jaguars.

Browns TE David Njoku (knee) missed his second straight practice on Thursday. He's taken every Wednesday off since Week 8, but this is the first time he's also missed Thursday. We'll see if Njoku gets on the field tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report for this weekend's game vs. the Jaguars.

Browns WR Amari Cooper (concussion, ribs) did not practice on Wednesday. He's unlikely to clear the concussion protocol in time to play vs. the Jaguars this weekend. Cooper's absence would leave WR Elijah Moore and TE David Njoku as the clear top-two targets in Cleveland's passing game.
