After suffering a concussion earlier in the season, Gaines returned for Sunday's game against the Chiefs and subsequently suffered another one. Given how long he missed the last time, it appears the Browns will take a precautionary route and sit Gaines for the remainder of 2018.
Gaines won't return to Sunday's game versus the Chiefs due to a concussion, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
It's a major blow to the secondary since Damarious Randall (groin) was inactive and Denzel Ward suffered a hip injury in the first quarter and is questionable to return. Expect TJ Carrie to see an uptick in usage for the remainder of the game.
Gaines (concussion) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Gaines originally sustained the concussion in Week 6 against the Chargers and hasn't played since. The 26-year-old didn't at all practice last week, so his full participation Wednesday bodes well for his Week 9 status.
Gaines (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Gaines will miss his second consecutive game while nursing a concussion. As long as Gaines remains sidelined, Damarious Randall (groin) and TJ Carrie should be in line for increased snaps at the cornerback position. Gaines will look to return to the field against the Chiefs in Week 9.
Gaines has yet to clear the NFL's concussion protocol and was unable to practice Wednesday, according to Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer. The lack of practice participation suggests that Gaines hasn't made much progress in his recovery from the concussion, which he sustained in the Week 6 loss to the Chargers. T.J. Carrie will likely remain in the starting lineup Sunday if Gaines is unavailable, while safety Briean Boddy-Calhoun earns more work at cornerback in nickel packages.
