A shoulder injury seemed to put a damper on Browns wide receiver Greg Little’s best performance of the season Sunday in a 24-18 win over the Baltimore Ravens, but coach Rob Chudzinski indicated Monday during a conference call that Little isn’t seriously hurt. Chudzinski said Little has a sprained shoulder and “there’s a good chance” he’ll practice Tuesday as the Browns (4-5) head into their bye week. Little is one of several injured players who’ll receive extra time to recover before the team’s next game Nov. 17 at the Cincinnati Bengals. Little, who had a career-high seven catches for 122 yards against the Ravens, will also have time to ponder a lesson he received Sunday: The player who starts a fight isn’t always the one who gets into trouble. As Little blocked Ravens strong safety James Ihedigbo at the end of a running play late in the first quarter, Ihedigbo put his right hand on the back of Little’s helmet and pushed his head down. Little shoved back, and Ihedigbo and outside linebacker Pernell McPhee pushed Little, causing him to fall onto his backside. Ihedigbo then lunged toward Little, placed his hands on Little’s collarbone and neck area and drove him to the ground. Ihedigbo’s helmet popped off — Little might have yanked it off — as other players separated the two. Little emerged from the pile with Ihedigbo’s helmet and flung it, drawing a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty with 1:16 left in the first quarter. Screen shots of the television broadcast on CBS make it look as if Ihedigbo choked Little, even if he just pushed him down. A still frame of the melee circulated online Monday. “I have not seen that picture,” Chudzinski said. “I don’t know exactly what happened. The guys are off today, so I’ll get a better idea [later this week]. But that’s the typical thing. There’s things that go back and forth with guys, and usually the second guy or the last guy is the one that gets caught, and we have to know that in that situation. That’s part of the game and part of being smart and part of the control that I’m talking about, and sometimes the second action can be understood because of what’s gone or what has gone on up to that point.”
