Joe Haden day-to-day with shoulder injury

Monday, December 15, 2014, 1:35pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Cornerback Joe Haden, who exited the 30-0 loss to the Bengals with a shoulder injury, apparently won’t be missing the last two chances to climb back into playoff contention.

Per a league source, Haden is day-to-day.

With trips to Carolina and Baltimore to end the season, the Browns need to weigh the risk of playing Haden against the potential rewards. The postseason hopes took a major blow on Sunday; it possibly makes sense not to take a chance with Haden’s shoulder, if further injury could impact his preparation for 2015.

Fantasy Impact:

Even after Sunday’s outcome, the Browns have a far better chance than anyone envisioned entering the season to qualify for the playoffs for the first time since 2002, the story went on to say. Haden will want to be part of the effort to finish the campaign on the right side of .500 — and to hope for the help that they’ll need in order to make it to January. If Haden plays Week 16, it likely brings down the value a little of the Panthers Kelvin Benjamin, the team's top receiving threat.

Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham is going to get a second opinion on the injured toe that caused him to miss Sunday’s win over the Browns.

Fantasy Impact:

The Bengals ran the ball well enough yesterday it might not matter, but they need Gresham on board if they are to make a playoff run. With Tyler Eifert on IR, he’s their main receiving threat at the position. Kevin Brock and Alexander Smith are next up on the depth chart.

Broncos not concerned about Peyton Manning's thigh

Monday, December 15, 2014, 10:07am

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Per a league source, the Broncos have no lingering concern about QB Peyton Manning's thigh injury.

The team believes the thigh problem was related to Peyton’s illness, and that it won’t affect his preparation for next Monday’s game against the Bengals. His decision to head to the locker room early was aimed at getting the thigh worked on by the strength coach and trainer at halftime.

Fantasy Impact:

We’ll officially know more about Manning’s thigh on Thursday, when the team’s first injury report in advance of next Monday’s game is released the story said. Apparently, the article added, Manning won’t be listed with a thigh injury.

Browns waive K Billy Cundiff; sign Garrett Hartley

Saturday, December 13, 2014, 3:58pm

USA Today - [Full Article]

Billy Cundiff practiced inside FirstEnergy Stadium on Thursday, working on his mechanics and hoping to snap out of his recent funk.

He won't play there Sunday.

The Browns waived the slumping kicker Saturday and replaced him with veteran Garrett Hartley, who will likely kick against the AFC North-leading Cincinnati Bengals.

Cundiff's release comes a week after he missed a 40-yarder in a one-point loss to Indianapolis and following two days in which he kicked well in practice before injuring his knee.

Fantasy Impact:

Cundiff missed Friday's practice and coach Mike Pettine said the 34-year-old veteran had injured himself the previous day, the story said. Cundiff refused to discuss his injury, deferring all questions about his status to Pettine. Although Cundiff had a sleeve on his left leg, the Browns said on their injury report he hurt his right knee.

Friday, December 12, 2014, 6:26pm

Browns RB Isaiah Crowell (hip, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 15. The full participation and probable tag are great signs for Crowell who was limited last week and saw fewer than half the touches as a result. He has a very good matchup with the Bengals, who are last in the league in RB aFPA. It also doesn’t hurt that Johnny Manziel represents a serious running threat from the quarterback position.

Friday, December 12, 2014, 6:26pm

Bengals WR James Wright (knee, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 15.

Friday, December 12, 2014, 6:26pm

Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham (toe, questionable) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 15.

Friday, December 12, 2014, 6:26pm

Bengals K Mike Nugent (not injury related, probable) missed practice all week and is probable for Week 15.
