Sheldon Richardson Injury Updates | Shark Bites

Browns DE Myles Garrett (shoulder), DT Sheldon Richardson (neck) and CB Terrance Mitchell (non-injury) are all active for tonight's game against the Steelers. Each entered the night questionable.

Browns DE Myles Garrett is questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers with a shoulder injury he apparently sustained in Friday's practice. He turned up limited that day after being estimated as a full participant the previous 2 days. Cleveland, of course, didn't actually practice until Friday, so it's a tough situation to read. We'll see about his status on Sunday. Losing Garrett would obviously be a huge blow for an already lackluster defense and a team with big COVID issues for the playoff opener. DT Sheldon Richardson (neck) and CB Terrance Mitchell are also questionable. Mitchell's issue is not injury related, so it's not yet clear what puts his status in question. The Browns also don't yet know if CB Denzel Ward will be able to come off the COVID list in time for the game against Pittsburgh.

Browns DT Sheldon Richardson left Sunday night's win over the Giants with a neck injury. X-rays came back negative, according to Andrew Gribble of the team website. We'll see about Richardson's status heading into next Sunday's matchup with the Jets, Richardson's original team.

Browns DT Sheldon Richardson (back) and DE Olivier Vernon (knee) are active for today's season finale against the Bengals. Richardson looks good for normal IDP usage. Vernon, on the other hand, hasn't played a full game since Week 9. He previously made it through just 10 snaps in a Week 13 attempt at returning from the knee injury. He'd be a high-risk IDP option -- albeit with sack upside.

Jets DE Sheldon Richardson is inactive for today's game at Houston because of a hamstring injury. That'll return the line to its season-opening alignment and likely mean a bit more playing time for Leonard Williams. It doesn't alter Williams' IDP outlook, however. The Jets' team D also remains usable against the Texans.

The Jets have deemed DE Sheldon Richardson questionable for Sunday's game against Houston because of a hamstring injury that has limited him this week. That certainly makes him an iffy IDP option even if he's active. Richardson sits outside of starter territory in our Week 11 IDP rankings for most fantasy formats.

Update: ESPN's Ohm Yongmisuk reports that Richardson will be a game-time decision.

The Jets watched starting defenders S Calvin Pryor (bruised knee), LB David Harris (quad) and DE Leonard Williams (ankle sprain) leave Sunday's win over Miami with injuries. According to ESPN New York, HC Todd Bowles said Monday that it's too early to know what their statuses will be after the Week 5 bye. We'll check back in on all 3 after the time off. At least none sounds like a longer-term issue. If Williams misses any time, that could allow DE Sheldon Richardson to step back into the lineup, now that his 4-game suspension is done.

Jets DE Leonard Williams left Saturday night's game early with a knee injury. The fact that the team deemed him "questionable" to return tells us it's not serious. We'll see what the full diagnosis says, though. Williams faces big opportunity given DE Sheldon Richardson's uncertain situation. Richardson will already miss the 1st 4 games because of a drug suspension and might yet face further discipline thanks to a July arrest.

UPDATE: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Jets have deemed Williams' injury a bone bruise. That would seem to put him in line to play in the regular-season opener.

The Jets have officially ruled DE Muhammad Wilkerson out for Monday's game against the Dolphins because of the toe injury that removed him early from Week 12's loss to Buffalo. It'll be the 1st game Wilkerson has lost to injury in his career. It also takes a top-10 D-lineman away from IDP owners and hurts a Jets run D that has ranked among the league's toughest matchups at full health. The Jets' D-line will at least have DE Sheldon Richardson, who is probable after dealing with a back injury this week. He put in a full practice Saturday.
