Browns TE Gary Barnidge (ankle, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 14. Barnidge is expected to play through the ankle injury. He hasn’t been as productive with Johnny Manziel under center, but two of Manziel’s four starts came before Barnidge’s breakout in Week 3. In Manziel’s last two starts, Barnidge has 15 targets (19.2% of Manziel’s pass attempts). He posted 8-100-1 combined in those two games.

Week 17 vs Pittsburgh
Game flow in Week 16 was the impetus for one of Gary Barnidge’s poorest days of the season. With Cleveland unexpectedly competitive in a 17-13 loss to Kansas City, they did not to have to take the air very often to stay competitive, especially since the Browns ran for 232 yards. Barnidge finished with three receptions for 47 yards.
Gary should be able to rebound against the Steelers. Earlier this year, he caught six passes for 65 yards and a touchdown in a loss to Pittsburgh, a team that could not corral Ryan Mallett last Sunday in a must-win situation. And Cleveland probably will not be able to set the tempo on the ground like they did in Kansas City, as Pittsburgh boasts a fairly respectable run defense. Barnidge is a safe TE1.
