Although it wasn’t apparent during Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears, Cleveland Browns tight end Jordan Cameron suffered a concussion, which helps explain his quiet, 3/23/0 line. According to ESPN Cleveland’s Tony Grossi, Cameron is not practicing today due to the concussion, and he’ll have to pass through the league’s mandatory concussion protocol in order to play this week against the New York Jets.
The concussion makes Cameron questionable for this week’s game, and he could very well end up being a toss-up, game-time decision. If Cameron is able to play, though, then he should be able to have an excellent game against a spotty Jets secondary that allowed five receptions for 88 yards to Greg Olsen last week.
Cleveland Browns running back Willis McGahee missed last week’s game with a concussion he suffered the previous week against the New England Patriots, and he was never expected to play against the Bears. He is, however, fully expected to return this week against the Jets, which is something he indicated yesterday.
Per the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram’s Scott Petrak, the Browns have cleared McGahee to practice today and play this week, so there is little doubt that he will be out there. Since he is averaging just 2.7 yards per carry and is facing an amazing run defense, I don’t view McGahee as a viable fantasy option.
