Joe Mixon (foot) and William Jackson III (concussion) have not participated in a practice thus far this week. Mixon was seen moving fine on the sideline on Thursday, but the team may be taking extra precautions with his injury.
It’s entirely possible Mixon practices on Friday, but Jackson is more of a long-shot. It’s safe to predict the five-day turnaround will be too quick for Jackson to pass the concussion protocol. Expect him to be declared doubtful or out after Friday’s practice if he indeed does not participate.
Shawn Williams (hamstring) has now been limited for two-straight days. Williams hasn’t missed a game since making his season-debut in Week 3.
On the positive side, Darius Phillips (illness) returned to practice after missing Wednesday. Auden Tate (shoulder) and Markus Bailey (neck) each went full as well after being limited on Wednesday. Tate hasn’t played in nearly two weeks, so this is a good sign for him to make his return.
Geno Atkins, Carlos Dunlap, and A.J. Green all practiced to some degree after getting rest days on Wednesday. Khalid Kareem popped up on the report with a shoulder injury, but he practiced in full.
A few changes can be seen on the Browns’ injury report. For starters, DT Sheldon Richardson missed Thursday’s practice with an apparent Achilles injury. Richardson had a career day against the Bengals back in Week 2, so he’d be a big loss if he can’t practice on Friday.
RG Wyatt Teller (calf) has now missed two practices and is looking like he won’t return this week. Teller also played very well against the Bengals in their first meeting.
QB Baker Mayfield (chest) and TE David Njoku (shoulder) both practiced in full after being limited on Wednesday. Andrew Sendejo (shin) went limited after not practicing on Wednesday.
