For the third straight day, Browns Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Cameron suited up for practice. During Friday's indoor session, the massive 6-foot-5 target**put on a shimmy-shake move in a passing drill and hauled in a Brian Hoyer pass for a touchdown.
Cameron suffered a concussion on Oct. 26 against the Raiders and is listed as questionable against the Bills on Sunday. Cameron, who has been limited in these practices, still looks the part and he's been anxious to throw on his Cleveland jersey.
Now the question is whether the symptoms subside after a few days of rest.
"I'm feeling good, I'm feeling better and I'm making progress daily," Cameron told ClevelandBrowns.com on Friday. "It's a day-by-day thing with this concussion and we'll see what happens on Sunday."
The Browns did rule out linebacker Karlos Dansby (knee). The 33-year-old leader on defense has been rigorously rehabbing in the training room and even on during his free time to try and get back on the field.
We wrote about how Dansby still made an impact in Atlanta from the sidelines and defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil wholeheartedly agreed.
"He's still involved in meetings; he's still involved asking questions," said O'Neil. "He's still broke the team down during pregame. Every Friday, they have a players-only meeting where they watch two-minute together; he still runs that meeting. He's still very much involved."
"I love this man; I love this game," said Dansby, who said count on returning next week against the Colts.
- Marlon Moore (hamstring/OUT), Tashaun Gipson (knee/OUT), Ahtyba Rubin (back/questionable), Jabaal Sheard (foot/questionable) and Barkevious Mingo (shoulder/probable).
- For the Bills: Defensive end Jarius Wynn (knee/OUT), safety Bacarri Rambo (hamstring/OUT), tight end Chris Gregg (knee/OUT), kicker Dan Carpenter (groin/probable) and wide receiver Robert Woods (ankle/probable).
News and Notes
- Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan couldn't have more pleased with Josh Gordon's first game of the year. The wide receiver has been looking "possessed in practice" and it showed in Atlanta last Sunday.
- "I would have been surprised if he didn't play that way because of the way he practiced," said Shanahan. "I was waiting to see, but just from a physical standpoint, he looked ready to go. He played that way, and I was real happy with how he played. He competed."
- The Bills' defense is playing a completely different scheme than the one Mike Pettine ran last year in Buffalo. It's a 4-3 unit that plays straight up without many confusing looks. Bills defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz has the unit ranked second overall in the league. Because of the radical change, it shows how good the players are in Buffalo.
- "They're a lot less pressure. I don't know what the statistics are, but they don't blitz very much. They're essential in the same front all the time," said Pettine. "Scheme-wise, they're very different, but for the most part it's the same unit."
- Johnny Manziel addressed the media about the incident that took place at The 9 last weekend in downtown Cleveland. The main take away: everything was blown out of proportion.
