Could Andrew Hawkins actually miss his Cincinnati reunion on Thursday Night Football?
Probably not, but the Browns are keeping their cards close to the vest as the receiver deals with a knee and thigh injury that caused him to miss practice Monday. Head coach Mike Pettine said that Hawk will be a game-time decision for Thursday Night Football.
However, expect Hawkins to be active when he faces the Bengals for the first time since leaving to sign with Cleveland this offseason.
