Browns receiver/returner Joshua Cribbs injured his right ankle running a pass pattern at practice Wednesday and left the field with trainer Marty Lauzon. Cribbs stopped, pushed off and came back to the ball, then came up limping.
A Browns spokesperson said Cribbs got the ankle taped and returned to practice, catching punts and participating fully.
The former Kent State quarterback was to get more snaps in the ''Flash'' package in Sunday's season finale at Pittsburgh because Ken Dorsey suffered a rib injury and a mild concussion last weekend against Cincinnati. Cribbs was already playing with a sore back.
Browns coach Romeo Crennel said Dorsey was ''very questionable'' for Pittsburgh, which would leave Bruce Gradkowski, the former Bucaneer signed on Dec. 2, to start against the Steelers. Gradkowski is a Pittsburgh native.
