Head coach Bruce Arians considers Peterson day-to-day following the ankle injury suffered in Sunday night's win against the Bengals, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
Peterson was in tip-top shape for the majority of the contest, containing A.J. Green to two catches for 24 yards, one pass break-up, and a defensive holding penalty on the six passes on which they were matched up, according to Pro Football Focus. However, Peterson injured his ankle in the waning minutes, which contributed to a breakdown of the Cardinals' pass defense. While the team awaits the result of an MRI, his status will remain in question.
Head coach Bruce Arians is hopeful that Floyd (hamstring) plays Sunday at San Francisco, but the wide receiver will have to "open up and go" in order to do so, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Floyd continues to feel the effects of a hamstring injury from Week 10, which held him out of all practices in advance of Sunday's game against the Bengals. After a pregame warmup, he was listed on the Cardinals' inactive list, and the team trusted in rookie J.J. Nelson (four catches for 142 yards and one touchdown) to handle Floyd's role in the offense. In the aftermath of the game, Arians told Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site that Floyd "could have played in the red zone, but he couldn't open it up and run." If Floyd is unable to show progress in the form of participation at upcoming practices, he could suffer a similar fate in Week 12.
Browns coach Mike Pettine said the team plans to have cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, their seventh-round pick, sit out the 2015 season as the player recovers from a serious knee injury he suffered at the end of his college career, per Cleveland.com.
Gabriel (concussion) did not participate in Wednesday's practice, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Gabriel sat alongside fellow wideout Andrew Hawkins, who is also dealing with a concussion. The presumed absence of Hawkins, who is dealing with his second concussion of the season, could have been a big opportunity for Gabriel, but it now appears Brian Hartline could be the main beneficiary. The health of this position group is surely worth monitoring following Cleveland's Week 11 bye.
Haden (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game.
The Florida alum didn't practice all week after suffering his second concussion of the season against the Cardinals in Week 8, so it's not surprising to see him ruled out. In his place, Pierre Desir or Justin Gilbert will likely get the start at corner opposite of Tramon Williams.
Hawkins (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Hawkins was forced to exit Sunday's contest with a concussion, and considering that this was his first game back since dealing with a prior concussion, the slot receiver is likely to be dealing with a multi-week absence. As such, it's no surprise to see him take a day off from practice as he works through the league's concussion protocol. Fortunately for Hawkins, the Browns have a Week 11 bye before returning to face the division-rival Baltimore Ravens.
McCown (ribs) will start Monday's game against the Ravens, with Johnny Manziel demoted to third on the depth chart, NFL Network's James Palmer reports.
Manziel is getting demoted because he was photographed at a bar in Austin, TX during the Browns' bye week. It's not entirely clear that the demotion will last all season, but at the very least, McCown makes for a nice streaming option against a Baltimore defense that he picked apart for 457 passing yards back in Week 5. There should be further updates regarding Cleveland's quarterback situation in the coming days.
Whitner (concussion) returned to the practice field on Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of Ohio.com reports.
Whitner has missed the last two games due to a concussion he suffered in a Week 8 loss to the Cardinals. His status for Sunday is still unknown, but returning to practice is a good sign for Browns' fans. An official decision on his status for Sunday should be made on Friday.
