Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little has been criticized many times throughout his career for inconsistent play and a bevy of drops, but he had himself an excellent game in yesterday’s win over the Baltimore Ravens. Little caught seven passes for 122 yards in what was easily his best game of the season, and he received plenty of targets from Browns QB Jason Campbell. He caught almost all of them, too, and Little showcased his incredible ability to generate yards after the catch with a 46-yard reception in the fourth quarter.
Unfortunately, Little also suffered a shoulder injury on that play, and it was unsurprising to see him leave the game after initially trying to play through it. The Akron Beacon-Journal’s Nate Ulrich reports that Little sprained his shoulder on that play, but Ulrich adds that he could still practice tomorrow.
The Browns have a bye week to rest before facing the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11, so there is almost no doubt that Little will be able to play that week. He isn’t in danger of missing any time, and it’s great to hear that he could practice as early as tomorrow. Little probably won’t replicate yesterday’s performance in Week 11, but he has raw talent to go off for big games if all the stars align. The question with Little is consistency, and that’s something that remains to be answered in a positive manner.
