Rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden has been hurt by the drops of the Browns' receivers. Now, it's the Browns' receivers who are feeling the pain.
There is a possibility that Cleveland will promote wide receiver Josh Cooper, a college teammate of Weeden, at the end of the week if the Browns don't get any of those receivers healthy.
"We'll have to see," coach Pat Shurmur said. "We'll make the roster as good as we can make it. We're going to put the guys on the field that can play and give us the best opportunity to win. If we've got to use three tight ends, if we've got to use two receivers, whatever the combination is, we've got plenty of plays and a lot of ideas and we'll put the guys out there that will give us the best chance to win."
Strong safety T.J. Ward didn't practice after undergoing surgery to repair his broken right thumb a couple of days ago. He could be out for one game.
