Saquon Barkley (ankle) has officially been ruled out for Week 7.
This was fully expected, but the hope is that Barkley doesn’t miss much more time with his ankle issue. This is Barkley’s second consecutive missed game.
Antonio Brown (ankle) ruled out for Week 7.
Brown finished last week’s game, but he didn’t practice this week, and the Bucs have ruled him out. This news should make Chris Godwin a safer WR1 option, and Tyler Johnson is also on the radar as a FLEX play with Mike Evans set to be covered by Bears cornerback Jaylon Johnson. Hopefully AB is good to go for Week 8.
Rob Gronkowski (ribs) ruled out for Week 7.
This is a disappointment with Gronkowski hopeful to return following a mini bye from last week’s Thursday night game, but he’s out again, so Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard will handle all the snaps at tight end. Tampa Bay is understandably waiting until Gronk is 100% before getting him back out there.
Parris Campbell had foot surgery.
Campbell’s season is unfortunately over. The former second-round pick’s year ends with ten receptions for 161 yards and a touchdown in five games. Campbell will be entering the final year of his rookie contract next season, and he should be at full health by training camp next summer.
Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) is officially active for Thursday night.
Beckham is clearly dealing with pain, but he pushed to play and will be out there for tonight’s Week 7 matchup against the Broncos. It’ll be interesting to see how the connection between Case Keenum and OBJ works out tonight for Cleveland.
The Browns have activated Jarvis Landry from injured reserve.
Landry will make his return tonight versus Denver, and it’s needed considering all the injuries for Cleveland. If Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) is unable to suit up, Landry will get a boost into more comfortable FLEX territory, and the passing attack could run through him with weather possibly being a factor.
