Jason Campbell, Greg Little back at practice

Jason Campbell and Greg Little were two huge reasons why the Cleveland Browns were able to dispose of the rival Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, as both players performed at a high level. The Browns passing offense is carrying the team right now, as the Browns haven’t found competence out of Willis McGahee or the running game this season. We knew McGahee wouldn’t be great or anything, but I know that I never envisioned him performing this poorly. Oh well, at least the Browns have Dion Lewis to look forward to.

Anyway, Little and Campbell suffered shoulder and rib injuries respectively yesterday, but both injuries were deemed as minor following the game. Both players were expected to practice today, and the Akron Beacon-Journal’s Nate Ulrich reports that Campbell and Little are indeed back out there today. Campbell merely suffered bruised ribs, but it was a scary moment when he went down on Sunday. Baltimore Ravens massive DL Haloti Ngata fell on top of Campbell’s back, and the ball nestled underneath Campbell essentially stabbed the veteran QB in the ribs. He was in clear pain throughout the game, though, but he was still able to perform at a high level.

It’s a bit surprising to see that the Browns didn’t simply give Campbell a day of rest since they are on a bye week, but I guess it just confirms that Campbell merely suffered a stinger. Little, on the other hand, left Sunday’s game in the fourth quarter following a huge play, but he only has a sprained shoulder. Neither of these two will miss any games with their respective ailments.

    I think Campbell would reject a day off if the coaches gave him one. He is a journeyman who is trying to make something happened in Cleveland – sore ribs or not, he is going to be at practice.

      Thanks for dropping by, and I never thought about it that way. That line of thinking definitely make sense, but I guess I’m just a big fan of giving key players rest. I mean, he suffered an injury on Sunday and it’s only the first practice of the bye week.

    I would give Campbell a couple days rest. It could only help.
    We can’t afford another quarterback to go down with a season ending injury.
    And our other option is Weeden. Heaven forbid
