Top Anthony Schwartz News

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Remains sidelined in Week 12

    Schwartz (concussion) won't play Sunday night against the Ravens, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.

    Schwartz, who also missed this past Sunday's game against the Lions, now will target a return to action following the Browns' bye week, when the team faces the Ravens again on Sunday, Dec. 12. With Schwartz out and Donovan Peoples-Jones (groin) listed as questionable, Rashard Higgins and perhaps Ja'Marcus Bradley are candidates for added WR snaps this weekend.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Listed as non-participant

    Schwartz (concussion) was listed as a non-participant on Thursday's injury report, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Although Schwartz is reportedly progressing through the league's concussion protocol, he has been listed as a non-participant for two consecutive days to begin the week. If he hopes to play Sunday against the Ravens, he'll presumably need to practice in some capacity Friday.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Will miss Wednesday's practice

    Schwartz (concussion) won't practice Wednesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Petrak adds that Schwartz -- who was inactive for the Browns' Week 11 win over the Lions -- is progressing through the NFL's concussion protocol, so he has a chance to be cleared for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Along with Schwartz, fellow wideouts Donovan Peoples-Jones (groin) Jarvis Landry (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, but the latter's absence was likely maintenance-related.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Ruled out for Week 11

    Schwartz (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Fellow wideout Donovan Peoples-Jones (groin) is listed as questionable for the contest after returning to practice Friday, but with Schwartz already ruled out for Week 11 action, it looks like Rashard Higgins will see his share of snaps versus Detroit on Sunday while working as Cleveland's No. 2 or No. 3 wide receiver.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Misses practice again

    Schwartz (concussion) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

    Fellow wideout Donovan Peoples-Jones (groin) also missed Thursday's practice, and if one or both players ends up out or limited this weekend, Rashard Higgins would be a candidate to see added snaps and targets Sunday against the Lions.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Fails to practice Wednesday

    Schwartz (concussion) is listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's injury report, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Schwartz remains in the concussion protocol and hasn't yet progressed to the point where he can practice in any capacity. The wideout looks like he still has multiple steps to clear in the protocol, leaving his status murky for Sunday's game against the Lions.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Suffers concussion

    Schwartz won't return to Sunday's game at New England after being diagnosed with a concussion, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Schwartz failed to catch his lone target and returned four kickoffs for 70 yards before going down with the injury. He'll need to fully clear the concussion protocol to have a chance of seeing the field Week 11 versus Detroit.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Catches one ball in win

    Schwartz caught his lone target for 15 yards and did not have a kick return in Sunday's 41-16 win over the Bengals.

    Schwartz, who has been getting very little run on offense, did not experience an uptick in opportunities in the first game after Cleveland released wide receiver Odell Beckham. He did, however, play 28 snaps, which was more than Rashard Higgins' three. The Browns remain a run-first team, and when that is working as it did Sunday, there are few targets for depth guys like Schwartz. The rookie had been lining up as a kick returner the last six games, but those chores went to Demetric Felton on Sunday.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Little usage on offense

    Schwartz was not targeted and returned one kickoff for 10 yards in Sunday's 15-10 loss to the Steelers.

    The rookie wideout was on the field for just six offensive snaps, even though Donovan Peoples-Jones (groin) was inactive. Schwartz continues to serve as the Browns' primary kick returner, but he's played a minor role offensively since making a positive impression in Week 1 (three catches, 69 yards).

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Snap count remains up

    Schwartz caught two of three targets for 22 yards, had one carry for minus-2 yards, and returned one kickoff for 26 yards in Thursday's 17-14 win over Denver.

    Schwartz appears to have escaped the doghouse following a Week 2 mistake that resulted in a turnover and led to quarterback Baker Mayfield's left shoulder injury. The rookie was targeted just four times with decreased playing time from Week 2 to Week 5, but Schwartz reversed that trend over the last two games. Schwartz caught four of six targets for 33 yards the last two weeks while playing 42 percent of the offensive snaps. Part of Thursday's usage was related to the pre-game groin injury suffered by Donovan Peoples-Jones, who didn't leave the bench. Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry are the clear top two wideouts with Schwartz, Peoples-Jones and Rashard Higgins fighting for the remaining available targets.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Makes first grab since Week 1

    Schwartz caught two of three targets for 11 yards and returned two kickoffs for 54 yards in Sunday's 37-14 loss to the Cardinals.

    Schwartz, whose 26 snaps were the most he's played since Week 1, caught his first pass since the regular-season opener. Odell Beckham missed a few series with a shoulder injury, giving Schwartz additional playing time. If Beckham's shoulder acts up following the game, Schwartz could get enhanced playing time in Week 7 when the Browns host the Broncos on Thursday Night Football.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Takes over kickoff-return role

    Schwartz did not catch his lone target in nine offensive snaps and returned five kickoffs for 109 yards in Sunday's 47-42 loss to the Chargers.

    Schwartz has gone four weeks without a catch following an opening-week debut that implied he would be one of Cleveland's top producers at wide receiver. As it turns out, Rashard Higgins' hamstring injury leading up to Week 1 may have been the main reason for Schwartz's involvement. The positive news is that the rookie, who did not return a kick in three years at Auburn, appears to have become the team's top kickoff returner, taking over for Demetric Felton, who remains the primary punt returner.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Appears as kick returner

    Schwartz did not catch his lone target and returned one kickoff for 26 yards in Sunday's 14-7 win over the Vikings.

    Schwartz has not caught a ball since snaring three in an opening-week loss to the Chiefs. Since then, he's been targeted exactly once in three straight contests. Sunday did see the 2021 third-round draft pick take on kickoff return duties. Through the first three weeks, fellow rookie Demetric Felton had served as the primary kick returner, but Felton's workload on offense is growing.

  • Browns' Anthony Schwartz: Another light week

    Schwartz did not catch his lone target in Sunday's 26-6 win over the Bears.

    Schwartz received quarterback Baker Mayfield's attention just once for the second straight week. That comes after a five-target effort in Week 1's loss to Kansas City. It could be that an interception in Week 2 -- a play on which the rookie didn't finish his route -- played a role in targets going to others. The third-round pick in the 2021 draft currently sits fourth on the wide receiver depth chart with Jarvis Landry (knee) unavailable, but he's deeper on the targeting depth chart. Running backs Kareem Hunt (seven targets Sunday) and Demetric Felton (three targets) out-targeted him, as did tight ends Austin Hooper and Harrison Bryant.
