Wilson, who was inactive last week, will be on the active roster Sunday against the Jets, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Wilson was benched last week, but defensive coordinator Joe Woods said the linebacker is in the plans for this week. Woods would not elaborate as to why Wilson was benched.
Wilson is being evaluated for a concussion, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports. Wilson contributed five tackles and one tackle for loss prior to his departure. The Alabama product has dealt with knee and hip issues during his second pro campaign, but now he'll endure his first stint in concussion protocol. As long as Wilson is unavailable, Elijah Lee is expected to serve as a fill-in at an outside linebacker spot.
Wilson (hip) is active Week 11 against Philadelphia, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports. Wilson was able to log one limited practice on Friday, and that will ultimately be enough for the second-year linebacker to get clearance to play. Cleveland will need all the help it can get on defense this week with top pass rusher Myles Garrett (illness) sidelined for the contest.
Wilson didn't participate in Thursday's practice due to a hip injury, Andrew Gribble of the team's official site reports. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, as Wilson saw action in 54 percent of defensive snaps in last week's win over the Texans. Expect Wilson's practice status Friday be a better indication of his chances to suit up in Sunday's game against the Eagles, but if he's forced to miss time, Malcolm Smith would be in line for the start at weak-side linebacker.
Wilson recorded one tackle and played 27 snaps in Sunday's 49-38 win over Dallas. Wilson increased his snap count from six to 27 in his second week back from a knee injury. The 2019 fifth-round pick, who averaged 60 snaps per contest during his rookie season, is expected to be a mainstay in the Browns' linebacking corps once he's ready to play more.
