The Browns are short-handed today, especially at wide receiver.
Three of the six players who were not at practice this morning during the 20-minute portion open to reporters are wide receivers. They are Mohamed Massaquoi (hamstring), Josh Cribbs (concussion) and rookie Travis Benjamin (unknown). As a result, the only receivers practicing were Greg Little, Jordan Norwood, rookie Josh Gordon and rookie Josh Cooper, who’s a member of the practice squad.
Strong safety T.J. Ward (right thumb), free safety Tashaun Gipson (knee) and tight end Alex Smith (concussion) didn’t practice, either.
Free safety Usama Young suffered a knee injury Thursday night against the Baltimore Ravens, but he was at practice today.
