The Browns have one of the most interesting and successful offenses in football. Tyrod Taylor, Jarvis Landry and Baker Mayfield are a creative trio that could lead to big things for Cleveland this season. Unfortunately, their top two receivers might miss much or all of training camp due to injury.

The Cleveland Browns already have a difficult job on Sunday, but the probable absence of two key offensive players might make things much more difficult.
Cleveland will face the Baltimore Ravens, who top the AFC North Division, on December 12, but may be forced to do so without wide receiver Jarvis Landry and tight end David Njoku.
Despite the aid of both players, the Ravens defeated the Browns 16-10 in Baltimore two weeks previously. Landry had the most receptions and receiving yards on the team, with six catches for 111 yards. Meanwhile, Njoku caught three passes for 35 yards and scored Cleveland’s lone touchdown.
For Browns’ Landry and Njoku, different issues might lead to the same outcome.

According to the team’s official injury report, Landry was one of four Browns players who did not practice on Wednesday. Landry, Cleveland’s second-leading receiver this season with 356 receiving yards, is dealing with a chronic knee injury. Due to injuries, he has already missed four of the team’s eight games this season.
Tight end Harrison Bryant (ankle) and wide receiver Andrew Schwartz joined him on the did not practice (DNP) list (concussion protocol). Bryant has been a key player for the Browns this season, catching three passes for 50 yards against the Ravens in the last game before the bye week on Sunday. This season, the FAU second-year athlete has caught 16 receptions for 211 yards.
Starting left defensive lineman Malik Jackson, who is now out with his own knee ailment, was the fourth member of the Browns to miss practice. According to the team’s report, the Browns did not clarify the predicted game statuses for any of the four Wednesday.
Njoku’s absence is not due to an injury, but rather to a health issue. On Tuesday, Cleveland’s highest pass catcher of the season, with 407 yards and three touchdowns, was placed on the league’s COVID-19/Reserve list.
Smh, I’m not feeling anything.

The fifth-year tight end was not pleased with the decision, loudly expressing his displeasure on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon.
He wrote, “Smh I don’t feel a thing.”
Njoku might still play in Baltimore on Sunday, but it’s uncertain whether he will. This is mostly due to medical privacy rules, which keep his vaccination status, as well as any pertinent test results, off the public record. If he gets inoculated and tests negative for the virus two times before kickoff Sunday, Cleveland’s best passing threat will be allowed to play.
Browns’ timing of potential player absences isn’t ideal.

The Browns’ projected absences of both tight ends and Landry aren’t ideal, but the bye week, which began last Sunday, couldn’t have come at a better time.
Despite Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson sending Cleveland four interceptions, the Browns came one touchdown shy of victory over the Ravens two weeks ago. Baker Mayfield, the Browns’ quarterback, has taken a lot of fire for his team’s failure to convert those mistakes into the points needed to win. During a press conference on Wednesday, December 8, he addressed some of these concerns.
“I haven’t had any significant setbacks in the last two weeks, and I’m looking forward to taking another week off.” “I’m looking forward to continuing to improve as the weeks go,” Mayfield added. “Right now, we’re just thinking at it as a one-game season.” Everything we can achieve is still in front of us, and if we manage it appropriately, it will go our way. All you have to do now is act properly.”
The Browns are still in the hunt for a postseason berth, but each defeat makes their prospects more more tough. As the 11th seed in the AFC, the Browns would be watching the playoffs from home if they started this weekend. Cleveland, on the other hand, is just one game behind the Buffalo Bills, who are presently the conference’s 7th and final seed.
The remainder of the Browns’ schedule is harsh, with all five of their opponents now having winning records, making home victories like the one versus the Ravens on Sunday even more important.
