Whitehead did not practice Monday due to a groin injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
The severity of Whitehead's injury remains undisclosed, putting his status for Friday's preseason game against the Buccaneers up in the air. The 26-year-old projects to provide the Browns with depth at the safety position when healthy while also playing a role on special teams.

Whitehead was an exclusive-rights free agent who had little option but to sign the tender he was extended. The Auburn product initially slots back in as a depth safety behind Damarious Randall and Eric Murray.
The Browns extended a tender to Whitehead on Friday, Andrew Gribble of the team's official site reports.
Whitehead was claimed off waivers by the Browns on Nov. 7, and played exclusively on special teams. In seven games with Cleveland, the Auburn product accumulated just four tackles (one solo). The 25-year-old should continue to serve his role on special teams and as a depth safety for the Browns.

Whitehead could become an integral component to Sunday's game plan given Cleveland's depleted depth in the secondary. While there's no guarantee Whitehead will be a fixture with the Browns moving forward, there seems to be a role for him come Sunday.
The Packers released Whitehead on Tuesday.
Whitehead was ejected from Sunday's game against the Patriots for slapping the facemask of Patriots center David Andrews, leaving one to wonder if his release was at all related to the incident. The second-year safety recorded 20 tackles and a sack during his time with the Packers, and will likely receive interest from teams in need of secondary depth.
Whitehead was ejected from Sunday's game against the Patriots after making contact with the facemask of Patriots center David Andrews, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Whitehead was ejected in the second quarter, and his absence robbed the Packers of depth in a secondary that just let go of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix earlier in the week. The defensive back will finish the game with four tackles.

Whitehead was limited in practice to end the week due to a lingering back issue, but appears unhindered by the injury and will suit up for Sunday's matchup against New England. The 25-year-old played 75 defensive snaps against the Rams in Week 8 and should be in line for another large defensive workload against the Tom Brady-led Patriots passing attack.
Whitehead (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Whitehead started the week not practicing but was able to put in limited sessions Thursday and Friday. If healthy, the 25-year-old should serve a key rotational role in the secondary that is now without the recently traded Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Tramon Williams is shifting from cornerback to safety, but Whitehead should still have a significant role defensively after playing 75 snaps against the Rams.
Whitehead (back) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.
Whitehead was unable to practice to begin the week, so his limited participation is a step in the right direction. The 25-year-old has been dealing with a lingering back issue for weeks, and he should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots. If he's able to suit up, expect Whitehead to play a key rotational role in Green Bay's secondary, which now lacks the recently traded Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.
Whitehead was held out of practice with a back issue, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.
Whitehead has dealt with a back issue for much of the season, so his absence during Wednesday's practice isn't all that surprising, and, as of now, he's expected to play against the Patriots on Sunday night. Whitehead is a candidate to replace recently traded Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in Green Bay's secondary due to his ability to play both hybrid safety and slot cornerback. The second-year defensive back has 17 tackles and two pass deflections this season.
Whitehead (back) is active for Monday's contest against the 49ers, Jason Wahlers of the Packers' official site reports.
Whitehead will return to action after missing Week 5's game against the Lions. He will provide depth at strong safety behind starter Kentrell Brice.
Whitehead (back) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the 49ers, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.
Whitehead was a limited participant at practice this week after sitting out Week 5. The 25-year-old averaged 26 defensive snaps in his previous four contests, and if inactive his role would likely be filled by Josh Jones.
Whitehead (back) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Lions.
Whitehead has averaged 26 defensive snaps per game over the first four weeks, and he's made eight solo tackles, one sack and two pass breakups in that span. Expect Josh Jones to see an uptick in snaps in his absence.
Whitehead (back) didn't practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Lions.
Whitehead logged a sack in Week 4 against the Bills but has been used in a limited role during most games. If he can't go, expect Raven Green to see the first defensive snaps of his career.
Whitehead (back) returned to practice Monday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Whitehead has been sidelined since injuring his back during the Packers' preseason opener against the Titans, but the safety was able to participate in 11-on-11 drills Monday. He's slated to serve as Ha Ha Clinton-Dix's primary backup at free safety, though Raven Greene also provides competition at the position.
Whitehead (back) sat out Sunday's practice, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
Whitehead injured his back in Thursday's preseason opener. While he is out, look for Raven Greene to get some additional reps with the second team.
Whitehead suffered a back injury in Thursday's preseason game against the Titans, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
The extent of Whitehead's injury has yet to be determined. As long as he is out, expect Raven Green to see some additional snaps at safety with the second-team defense.
Whitehead signed a contract with the Packers on Saturday.
Whitehead appeared in two games for the Packers in 2016 and has been on the team's practice squad since being released at roster cutdowns. The 24-year-old takes the roster spot of quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone), who was placed on injured reserve. Whitehead could potentially see the field a bit more than typically expected in Week 7 with safety Morgan Burnett (hamstring) ruled out and cornerbacks Damarious Randall (hamstring) and Davon House (quadriceps) listed as questionable.
Whitehead (hip) was released by the Packers on Saturday.
It's not clear if Whitehead's hip injury is still an issue, but he is healthy enough to remain with Green Bay, and was added to the team's practice squad.
Whitehead is currently nursing a hip injury, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.
Whitehead played two games for the Packers last season, but spent the majority of the year on the practice squad. He is looking to make an impression during training camp, but is seemingly on track to fall short of the final roster.
