Shelton (knee) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice. Shelton was limited in practice all of last week, but still managed to suit up and play 38 percent of the team's defensive snaps in the Browns' loss to the Steelers. It's expected that he'll suit up again in Week 2 against the Ravens, though his workload may start to increase now that he's further removed from the knee injury.
Shelton (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's matchup against the Steelers. Shelton was a limited participant in practice all week, but apparently got in enough reps for Cleveland brass to deem him game-ready. He'll presumably take on his regular role as a starting defensive tackle in Gregg Williams' 4-3 scheme. With Myles Garrett (ankle) nursing an injury, the Browns need as many healthy bodies on the defensive line as they can get.
Shelton (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers. Shelton returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since injuring his knee in mid-August and has been limited all week. The Browns are already short-handed on the defensive front Sunday with Myles Garrett (ankle) ruled out, so Shelton being unable to play would hurt significantly.
Shelton (knee) is reportedly out 3-6 weeks, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Though the Browns have yet to confirm Yates' report, it seems Shelton's injury is more serious than first thought. If the reported recovery timetable holds true, Shelton may be healthy enough for Cleveland's matchup in Week 1 versus the Steelers, but the likelihood of that scenario is low. Jamie Meder will likely be in line to take first-team reps in Shelton's absence.
Shelton has been ruled out for the Browns' preseason game against the Giants on Monday due to a knee injury, Mary Kat Cabot of Cleveland.com reports. Shelton's injury isn't thought to be extremely serious, although he's without a timetable to return at present. Head coach Hue Jackson said that the defensive tackle should be considered week-to-week for the time being. Expect Jamie Meder and Trevon Coley to get some reps with the starting defense in Shelton's temporary absence.
