Jordan Cameron out vs. Bengals; Andrew Hawkins questionable

New, comments

Expect Andrew Hawkins to play vs. the Bengals on Thursday Night Football, but don't expect the Browns to have Jordan Cameron.

The Cleveland Browns will be without starting tight end Jordan Cameron when they face the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday Night Football. Cameron is dealing with the third concussion of his NFL career, and Cleveland doesn't want to risk bringing him back too soon.

Cameron sustained his third concussion in three seasons on Oct. 26 against Oakland. He sat out during Sunday's win over Tampa Bay and will miss another game as the Browns face the AFC North-leading Bengals. Cameron has just 13 receptions this season after making 80 catches in 2013. He's in the final year of his contract. Starting in his place will be Jim Dray with Gary Barnidge getting snaps too.

As for wide receiver Andrew Hawkins, he's listed as "questionable" to play vs. his former team. Hawkins leads the Browns in both receptions (39) and yards (504), putting him on pace for 78 catches and more than 1,000 yards for the season.

We should expect him to suit up in his first game at Cincinnati as an opposing player.
