Jordan Norwood Fantasy News

Cody Latimer making an impression
Friday, June 13, 2014, 10:39am

Denver Broncos - [Full Article]

There was no evidence of the foot injury that hindered Broncos WR Cody Latimer leading up to the draft. He looked big, fast, and more precise on his cuts than you'd often expect from someone so young. He made plays at all ranges, adjusted well to a variety of passes from Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler -- who throw different types of balls, obviously -- and made an impression. Another receiver who quietly found himself catching plenty of passes, particularly short ones, was Jordan Norwood, an ex-Cleveland Brown who made his NFL debut five years ago.

Fantasy Impact:

Latimer has the size (6’2”) and speed (4.44 40-yard dash) to replace Eric Decker, but barring injury, he’ll have to beat out the capable and experienced Emmanuel Sanders (along with Andre Caldwell, of course) to get a significant snaps in 2014.

Browns WR Mohamed Massaquoi injured his left hamstring in the second half Sunday and will likely be sidelined this week. If Massaquoi can't play, Jordan Norwood may be activated for the first time this season.

ESPN Cleveland - [Full Article]

Cleveland's projected starters at WR are Greg Little and Josh Gordon.

At 6-3 and 225 pounds, Gordon is the most physically imposing. He has long arms, large hands and reputedly no history of drops. Josh Cooper was QB Brandon Weeden’s second-favorite target at Oklahoma State and is experienced running crossing routes over the middle. The question is whether he can take the pounding of NFL safeties.

Don’t be surprised if Gordon, who hasn't played since the 2010 season at Baylor, needs time to claim a starting spot and Cooper edges out Jordan Norwood for the slot receiver role.

Fantasy Impact:

Cleveland receivers should be available pretty late in your draft. We currently have Little ranked 46th and available in the 11th round. Based on this article, guys like Mohamed Massaquoi and Josh Cribbs may eventually fall behind Gordon and Cooper.

WR Josh Cribbs will see heavy duty on special teams. The Browns hope Josh Cooper and/or Jordan Norwood can fill the third receiver spot behind Greg Little and Mohamed Massaquoi. An undrafted free agent from Oklahoma State, Cooper is more than just a guy who caught college passes from Weeden -- the Browns consider him a real prospect in the slot. They like his hands and ability to get open quickly.

Fantasy Impact:

This is somewhat surprising because Cribbs has been coming along as a receiver, showing good adjustment to balls thrown his way, especially in the endzone. Four of his 41 catches were TDs in 2011.

Fantasy Impact:

This post is missing the popular name of Greg Little, who appears to be a backup for now.

Vic Carruci of ClevelandBrowns.com: "I feel good about the Browns’ receivers. I’ll admit I wasn’t as confident about them at the start of training camp as I am now. But I think this is, at the very least, a solid receiving corps, and it might even be a little bit better than that. The bottom line is that all of the receivers who have been practicing and playing in the preseason are the right fit for the West Coast offense. They’re bigger, stronger guys who can make tough catches over the middle and athletic catches along the sidelines and in the end zone. Rookie Greg Little is the real deal. There’s also some really good competition, especially between Brian Robiskie and Jordan Norwood. And the bonus will be getting Mohamed Massaquoi back from his foot injury."

It's doubtful the Browns will use Joshua Cribbs much as a wide receiver. They want to sort through the group of Mohamed Massaquoi, Greg Little, Brian Robiskie and Carlton Mitchell (the front office likes him a lot). But they will have open competition for a slot receiver, and Cribbs could be in that mix along with Jordan Norwood and perhaps a veteran who is signed.

Eagles declare WR Jackson and LB Jordan out
Friday, December 4, 2009, 3:53pm

Philadelphia Daily News - [Full Article]

The Eagles have declared wide receiver DeSean Jackson and linebacker Akeem Jordan out for Sunday's game at Atlanta.

Jackson suffered a concussion against Washington and has not practiced all week. Coach Andy Reid had not officially declared him out until today.

"He’s had just kind of the normal headache. Normally they start reducing by today and that’s kind of the way it’s worked," Reid said. "“I just don’t think he’s ready yet. We’ll wait until next week and see how he does.”

Jason Avant will move from the slot to the flanker. Reid said Reggie Brown also will get some snaps on the outside. It also likely that Jordan Norwood will be activated as the fourth wide receiver.

Jordan (hyperextended knee) appears to be making progress, having been a limited practice participant Thursday, but was out today.

“He’s just not quite ready" Reid said. "He went out and he worked. He had a little bit of swelling yesterday, so we just backed off of him today.”

Wide receiver Kevin Curtis (knee) and running back Brian Westbrook (concussion) are out, as previously announced.

Tight end Brent Celek (sprained thumb), cornerback Sheldon Brown (hamstring) and defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley (ankle) were among a long list of Eagles listed as probable. Reid said Celek "felt pretty good" at today's practice.

The others: DE Victor Abiamiri (knee), WR Jason Avant (hamstring), G Nick Cole (knee), S Quintin Demps (ankle), G Todd Herremans (shoulder), WR Jeremy Maclin (foot), DT Mike Patterson (wrist, toe), CB Asante Samuel (neck). All were full practice participants.
