    Browns' Donte Whitner: Second leading tackler in Cleveland

    Whitner, who had just one tackle in Week 17, finished the year second on the team with 81 combined tackles (58 solo), 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble. Whitner may have been able to flirt with last season's team-leading total, but he missed two games earlier in the year due to a concussion. He broke a streak of recording an interception in five straight seasons, but still managed a career-best sack total, as the Browns seemingly had to get more creative with their pass rush scheme. At 30 years old, he'll have several more seasons under contract to cement his legacy in the league, though his year's as a productive IDP option may be dwindling.

    Browns' Donte Whitner: Listed as active Monday

    Whitner (concussion) is listed as active for Monday night's game against the Ravens. Whitner, who has missed two straight games, is thus set to resume his strong safety duties in tandem with free safety Tashaun Gipson, a bit of good news for the Browns' secondary, with cornerback Joe Haden ruled out Monday. To date, Whitner has racked up 55 tackles and a forced fumbles in eight games.

    Browns' Donte Whitner: Will not play Sunday

    Whitner (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game. The Browns have lost multiple starters due to concussions this season, particularly in the secondary. Whitner, one such causality due to the head injury, will now miss his second consecutive game, but with the the Browns on bye next week the 30-year-old will have an additional week to rest and recover before Week 12's contest against the Ravens.

    Browns' Donte Whitner: Will not practice Tuesday

    Whitner (concussion) will not practice Tuesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Whitner missed last Thursday's game with a concussion, so his status at practice Tuesday isn't all that surprising. The 30-year-old will likely need to participate in at least one of the Browns' next couple of practices in order to have a shot to play in Week 10, so fantasy owners should check back in closer to the end of the week to confirm his status.

    Browns' Donte Whitner: Out against Bengals

    Whitner (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday's contest, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. As expected, Whitner and teammate Joe Haden were both ruled out with concussions heading into their contest against the Bengals. With Tashaun Gipson also listed as questionable due to an ankle injury, Cleveland could be down three of their starters in the secondary -- giving Cincinnati's star receiver A.J. Green a potentially juicy matchup Thursday.

    Browns' Donte Whitner: Expected to miss Week 9

    Whitner (concussion) is expected to miss Thursday's game against the Bengals, the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Whitner was forced to exit Sunday's loss to the Cardinals due to a concussion, which will prevent him from being cleared ahead of Thursday's upcoming game against the Bengals, according to teammate Tashaun Gipson. With top cornerback Joe Haden (concussion) also out, the Browns' secondary appears rather thin going into a divisional matchup versus an undefeated opponent.

    Browns' Donte Whitner: Out for remainder of game

    Whitner (concussion) is out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Cardinals with a concussion, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Whitner suffered a concussion during Sunday's game, but the degree of the head injury is still unknown. The Browns have a quick turnaround this week with a Thursday night game against the Bengals coming up, which may not offer enough time for Whitner to pass concussion protocol tests. Look for Ibraheim Campbell to play in Whitner's place.

    Browns' Donte Whitner: Nine tackles in victory

    Whitner posted nine tackles (five solo) and one pass defensed in Sunday's victory over the Ravens. Whitner remains a highly productive IDP option in leagues that require starting defensive backs, as the 30-year-old has collected five or more tackles in each game this season. He remains in search of his first turnover, however.
