Earlier in the week, Gregg Williams joked the Browns were so short-handed at center that offensive line coach Bob Wylie had to take some reps at the position.
That shouldn't be necessary Sunday against the Texans, but the Browns could be down a little in the depth department.
Starter JC Tretter, as he's done for the past month, returned to practice in limited fashion Friday. He's listed as questionable -- a distinction he's carried for every game since Week 7 -- but is expected to maintain his streak of playing every single snap this season. His backup, rookie Austin Corbett (foot), was ruled out after missing practice all week.
Safety Damarious Randall was added to the injury report Friday with a hamstring injury and is considered questionable. Williams said he doesn't believe the injury is serious. Randall was a limited participant in Friday's practice.
Veteran Earl Watford has the ability to play multiple positions along the offensive line. The Browns' other second-team offensive lineman on the 53-man roster, Desmond Harrison, has played exclusively at left tackle since joining the team as an undrafted rookie.
Tretter has battled through a high ankle sprain since suffering the injury in the first quarter of Cleveland's Week 6 loss to the Chargers.
