Britt (groin/knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.
After missing back-to-back games, Britt appears to be inching toward a return to action, but his iffy status as Sunday's 1:00 p.m. EDT kickoff approaches makes him a risky roll in Week 7 lineups. If Britt is out or limited this weekend, look for Ricardo Louis and Kasen Williams to head the Browns' wideout corps, with Rashard Higgins and Bryce Treggs also in the mix. Britt's first four games in a Cleveland uniform have yielded just eight catches for 121 yards and a touchdown, so he'll need to establish a better rapport with rookie signal caller DeShone Kizer before reemerging as a reliable fantasy option.
Britt (groin/knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Britt, who has missed the Browns' last two games with the dual injuries, said earlier in the week that he feels healthier, but his back-to-back limited practices don't provide overwhelming evidence that he'll be ready to go for Sunday's game against the Titans. He remained similarly limited throughout practices last week and was labeled a game-time decision, only to be held out of the team's loss to the Texans. During Britt's two-game absence, Kasen Williams (eight catches on 11 targets) and Bryce Treggs (three catches on nine targets) have seen the most noticeable spikes in production among the team's receivers, but both Williams and Treggs will remain well off the fantasy radar in most formats until the Browns' anemic quarterback situation takes a turn for the better.
Britt (groin/knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.
Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reported prior to the practice session that Britt said he's "getting closer" to playing, and the wideout's limited involvement Wednesday would seemingly validate that comment. Until Britt is able to take part fully in practice, however, it may be difficult to have much optimism about his availability for Sunday's game against the Titans following a two-week absence. If healthy, Britt would likely step in as the top receiving threat for the Browns, but that role hasn't yielded much fantasy value this season. Through four games, Britt has hauled in just eight of 23 targets for 121 yards and a touchdown.
Britt (knee/groin) is listed as inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Texans.
Britt was a limited participant in each practice session this week, and a true game-time call heading into Sunday's matchup. With the veteran on the shelf for the second week in a row, the Browns and new starting quarterback Kevin Hogan will turn to Rashard Higgins, Bryce Treggs and Ricardo Louis as the primary options in the passing game. It was Louis who led the Cleveland wideouts with 58 snaps and eight targets in Week 5, so expect a similar configuration with Britt once again absent from the active roster. He'll now set his sights on returning to the field for Week 7's showdown against Tennessee, but Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer also noted that ineffectiveness played a role in Britt being inactive for Sunday's matchup. This clouds the status of Britt moving forward, as the perpetually-rebuilding Browns may be inclined to continue giving their younger wideouts opportunities.
Britt was able to practice throughout the week with the groin issue, though he saw only limited involvement in all three of the Browns' sessions. It appears that Britt is over the knee issue that also contributed to him missing the Week 5 loss to the Jets, but if his groin is still bothering him leading up to Sunday's 1:00 p.m. EDT kickoff, the wideout could be looking at another absence.
