Cleveland Browns tight end Jordan Cameron suffered a concussion on Sunday against the Chicago Bears, but the injury wasn’t clear during the game. We were informed of Cameron’s concussion yesterday when he missed practice, and the Akron Beacon Journal’s Nate Ulrich reports that Cameron still isn’t practicing today.
Consider his status in doubt for this week’s game against the New York Jets, and fantasy owners need to find a viable alternative for Cameron quickly. Owners should still definitely hold out hope for his return, though, because he is a vastly talented player who is going up against a bad New York Jets pass defense that allowed five receptions and 88 yards to Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen last week. That said, I don’t think we’ll see Cameron out there this week, but we’ll know more about his status Saturday (that’s when we’ll know if Cameron has passed through the concussion protocol).
The Browns could also be without superstar cornerback Joe Haden this week, as he missed practice today after not being able to participate in practice yesterday. Haden avoided any structural damage on the hip injury he suffered last week, but he has a hip pointer and is not expected to play this week. It remains to be seen if Haden will play this week, but I actually think Cameron has a better chance at playing. With the Browns playing for nothing more than pride at this point, I expect the Browns to take the cautious route with both injured stars.
