  • Kizer (ribs) practiced fully Thursday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Kizer, who briefly left the team's Week 10 loss to the Lions after bruising his ribs, was limited Wednesday, but his return to a full practice Thursday signals that he'll be fine for Sunday's home game against the Jaguars. The impending return of wideout Corey Coleman (hand) from injured reserve should boost Kizer's prospects down the stretch, but a run-heavy approach could be in order this weekend, with snow, wind and cold temperatures in the forecast for Cleveand on Sunday, according to Patrick Maks of the Browns' official site.

  • Browns' DeShone Kizer: Limited to start week
    By RotoWire Staff

    Kizer (ribs) was limited at Wednesday's practice, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Kizer briefly left Sunday's 38-24 loss to the Lions before returning for the end of the contest, stating afterward that he would continue to play through the rib injury. It only would have been a major concern if he had missed Wednesday's practice entirely. Of course, a Week 11 matchup with the Jaguars, who lead the NFL in sacks by a wide margin, doesn't bode well for Kizer's chances to avoid an aggravation, not to mention actually putting up some points. The expected return of wideout Corey Coleman (hand) should at least help Kizer a little bit.

  • Kizer said Monday that his bruised ribs are sore, but he expects to get treatment this week and continue playing through the injury Sunday against the Jaguars, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Kizer left Sunday's 38-24 loss to the Lions in the third quarter, but he only missed a few snaps and still finished with one of his better stat lines of the season. He'll have a hard time matching the performance in Week 11, facing a Jacksonville defense that's completely shut down passing game all season. The Browns do expect Corey Coleman (hand) to return, with Josh Gordon potentially joining him in Week 13. The improved supporting cast should help Kizer down the stretch, assuming he stays healthy and isn't benched again.

  • Browns' DeShone Kizer: Finds end zone twice
    By RotoWire Staff

    Kizer completed 21 of 37 passes for 232 yards with a touchdown and an interception during Sunday's 38-24 loss to the Lions. He also rushed seven times for 57 yards and a score. Kizer briefly left the game with a rib injury in the third quarter, but he was fortunately able to return later in the fourth after missing just a handful of plays. Unlike in his previous starts, the rookie from Notre Dame was able to lead his team on multiple scoring drives while protecting the ball, save for a late interception by Darius Slay. Kizer rushed for a career-high total, threw for over 200 yards for the first time since Sept. 24 against the Colts and looked more comfortable in the pocket overall. His improvement was obvious. and he'll look to build on that momentum against the Jaguars next Sunday.

  • Kizer returned to Sunday's game against the Lions after having left the contest with rib injury. Cody Kessler completed one of three pass attempts for five yards in Kizer's absence, but the rookie signal-caller was able to return to the game, with the 0-8 Browns attempting to mount a late comeback in Week 10.
