Barnidge suffered a knee injury during Sunday's game against the Giants, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Although Barnidge picked up 57 of the Browns' 75 offensive snaps, the ailment may be partially to blame for his dismal showing (one catch for 11 yards on three targets). He'll have a Week 13 bye in which to improve his health, but there could be another change of signal callers when he next takes the field on Dec. 11 versus the Bengals. Josh McCown started the last two games, Cody Kessler cleared concussion protocol Monday, and Robert Griffin (shoulder) will have an exam in the near future to determine if he can handle contact. None the options have been especially friendly for Barnidge, who has managed just five 50-plus yard performances and one touchdown in 12 games this season.
