Cleveland Browns safety Tashaun Gipson (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against San Diego Chargers , ESPN.com reports.
Gipson is dealing with a groin pull that reduced him to limited practice sessions both Thursday and Friday. Through three games, the safety -- who racked up six interceptions in 2014 -- has recorded 19 tackles and a pick for the Browns.

Gipson, who has claimed that the injury is quite mild, said he sustained it in Dallas trying to get in the best shape possible for camp. But Pettine is still unhappy with his Pro Bowl defensive back, who skipped voluntary workouts due to a contract dispute.

He added that he injured his hamstring training at his home in Dallas, but that he studied the playbook and spoke with coaches while he was gone to be as prepared as possible when he did arrive and got healthy.
