Browns linebacker Karlos Dansby could be sidelined for up to a month with a knee injury, coach Mike Pettine told reporters, per the Akron Beacon Journal on Monday. Dansby left Week 11 against the Texans with a sprained MCL, according to ESPN.
Mike Pettine has declared returning Browns wideout Josh Gordon "maybe a little ahead of where we expected" in his preparation for his 2014 debut Sunday in Atlanta, the Elyria Chronicle Telegram has reported. Gordon has missed the entire season due to a drug suspension.
Browns outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo might need surgery after the season to fix his injured shoulder, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer. He's currently "playing with a harness and is virtually a one-armed defender," the paper said.
The Browns are in fine shape heading into their Sunday game at Tennessee. Defensive end Desmond Bryant (glute) is the lone questionable player on their injury report and he practiced Friday on a limited basis.
