Browns wide receiver Josh Cribbs hinted that his long-awaited appearance in the backfield might happen Sunday against the Rams.
"I can't give nothing away, but they put something in that's special to me and that's all I can say about that,'' said Cribbs today. "Coach is really trying to target me and the coaches are really making an opportunity for me to get the football more.''
Asked again later about possibly lining up in the backfield, he said, "We've got eight games left. There will be some surprises this week.''
Cribbs is a sneaky start with Mohamed Massaquoi likely out and the Rams' defense coming to town. St. Louis has given up the 7th-most Adjusted FP to WRs this year and Cribbs has posted 7-106-2 over the last two weeks.
