Browns wide receiver Greg Little did not practice today because he was sent home from the team's headquarters with the flu, a team spokesman said.
Little attended meetings and had "a productive morning" before heading home, coach Pat Shurmur said through the spokesman.
Little has started all six games this season. He has tallied 14 catches for 169 yards and a touchdown. He is tied for second in the NFL with five dropped passes, according to STATS LLC.
Left guard Jason Pinkston (illness), linebacker Scott Fujita (neck/shoulder) and cornerback Dimitri Patterson (ankle) didn’t practice today, either. Pinkston was listed as limited Wednesday. Fujita and Patterson were out Wednesday and are not expected to play Sunday, when the Browns (1-5) visit the Indianapolis Colts (2-3).
Defensive tackle Phil Taylor still hasn't returned to practice, even though coach Pat Shurmur said Wednesday it’ll happen “pretty soon.” Taylor has spent all season on the physically unable to perform list with a torn left pectoral muscle he suffered in May.
