Buccaneers defensive end George Johnson appeared in a career-high 16 games in 2014 for the Lions, but he made no starts. He mostly was a rotational pass rusher last year, but the job seemed to suit him well, as he totaled a career-best six sacks.
Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) has yet to be cleared for full contact, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
To no one's surprise, Seferian-Jenkins was again limited at Wednesday's practice, according to Jenna Laine of Sports Talk 1040. At this rate, there's no telling when Seferian-Jenkins may return to the field, but the Buccaneers will continue to rely on Luke Stocker, Brandon Myers, and Cameron Brate at tight end for the foreseeable future.
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.
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.
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.
