INJURY REPORT FOR CLEVELAND BROWNS AT CINCINNATI BENGALS ON SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2012
BEST OF MAXIM
BEREA, Ohio -- Pat Shurmur tried Monday.
Brandon Weeden did his best on Wednesday.
Thursday it was Brad Childress turn to explain how a guy the Browns felt was so ready he didnt need to play the final preseason game could finish with four interceptions and a 5.1 rating in the season opener.
It wasnt a simple task.
But though Weeden admitted things cant get worse, Childress said...
Browns linebacker Scott Fujita is practicing for the first time since his three-game suspension was overturned.
Fujita was banned from the team's facility last week before a three-member appeals panel ruled in his favor and for three other players suspended by the NFL for their roles in the Saints' bounty program. Fujita is expected to meet soon with commissioner Roger Goodell...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Scott Fujita is another step closer to being on the field with the Browns
The NFL lifted the roster exemption Tuesday for the linebacker, who had the three-game suspension for his role in the Saints' bounty scandal lifted last week.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is planning to meet with Fujita and the three other players whose suspensions in connection with...
I knew it would come. I just didn’t expect it to happen this fast.
Four months ago I was upbraided by a throng of BoneHeads (Cleveland’s version of a cheese head) for questioning the Browns’ receivers and the wisdom of dumping yet another QB. I was colorfully informed that the sum total of all of Cleveland’s problems in 2011 rested solely with Colt McCoy. Replacing him would...
Last week Browns fans predicted a 27-16 loss to the Eagles and got a lot of things wrong. Now that you’ve seen the team and you’ve also (likely) seen the Bengals get pounded by the Ravens, we’ll see how you do. Results will be posted before game time.
Yikes. 12 of 35 for 118 yards and 4 interceptions. That is one of the worst quarterback performances I’ve ever seen. It’s pretty clear, Weeden, despite his age, is not a nearly finished product. It wasn’t all his fault; his supporting cast sucks. He’ll also probably improve as the season goes on, but this offense is incredibly young and will have many growing pains, to say...
A visit from the Cleveland Browns might provide the Cincinnati Bengals with an ideal opportunity to rebound from a terrible season-opening performance.
The Bengals look to continue their recent success over their AFC North rivals by trying to hand the visiting Browns an eighth consecutive loss Sunday.
One of three division teams to make the playoffs in 2011, Cincinnati was hoping...
Throughout training camp and the preseason, the biggest concern with the Bengals defense has been the secondary. Yes, there are six first-round corners on the roster but three of them were injured and saw minimal snaps. In Monday night's 44-13 loss to the Ravens, the concerns were well founded. Cornerback Leon Hall said after the game that he couldn't remember any blown...
Cleveland Browns at Cincinnati Bengals NFL Week 2 Preview
A.J. Green was considered by John Harbaugh as arguably the best wide receiver in the NFL, but Andy Dalton proved that he still has some growing pains to go through.
Andrew Hawkins and Armon Binns are the next targets alongside tight end Jermaine Gresham, which is certainly a concern.
Comments on the Cincinnati Bengals by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
CINCINNATI BENGALS (18)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 18) - Not quite ready for prime time.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 16) - Just can't take them more seriously until they beat Ravens or Steelers.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 22) - Still can't beat the top 2 in the AFC North
