Though rookie wide receiver Elijah Moore’s stats haven’t lived up to the promise he showed in preseason, Robert Saleh said Monday that not only will he continue to get his chances, but that there was a prevalent belief that he’ll soon turn his season around.
Moore has seen plenty of playing time but only has eight catches for 66 yards in 20 targets (he did miss a game with a concussion). HC Saleh, though, pointed to his game in London against the Falcons and their brutal secondary, where he did draw a 41-yard pass interference call. Moore started out having a great camp this year before getting hurt.
The Colts are suddenly banged up at WR yet again as Parris Campbell is expected to miss time. Pascal could stand to benefit the most with Strachan perhaps seeing more time as well if Hilton can't play. The story did say if Hilton misses time, it would be minimal.
No team has been hit harder by injuries than the Cleveland Browns. The Browns had 20 players on their estimated Monday injury report in preparation for Thursday night's home game against the Denver Broncos. Among those players are quarterback Baker Mayfield, who underwent an MRI on his left shoulder the day after Cleveland's 37-14 home loss to Arizona.
Mayfield will exercise his collectively bargained right to a second opinion with a doctor of his choosing.
The second opinion will take place before coach Kevin Stefanski can say whether or not Mayfield or Keenum will start Thursday night's game, according to Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot. Obviously the short week comes at a bad time for the Browns with Mayfield and several of their key players on the injury report.
