The Browns will receive a conditional draft pick in return for Shelton. The Patriots have a need at defensive tackle, and it looks like Shelton will not only get an opportunity to carve out a role on the line, but potentially earn a starting spot. He has logged 128 tackles (71 solo) and 1.5 sacks in 46 games across three seasons with the Browns. While his numbers do not necessarily jump off the page, he is a big body who can eat up blockers and allow the Patriots' linebackers freedom to roam.
Shelton (chest/ribs) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Ravens.
Shelton finished the week with a full practice after starting the week limited to avoid the injury designation. The 24-year-old was inactive for last week's loss to the Packers but should return to his starting role in Week 15.
Shelton was limited during Wednesday's practice due to chest and rib injuries.
Shelton sat out during the Week 14 loss to the Packers after failing to practice all week, so the fact that he returned Wednesday as a limited participant is a positive sign for his status heading into Sunday's game against the Ravens.
Shelton (ribs) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Packers.
Shelton has been a key factor in a quality Cleveland run defense this season, but will take a seat for the Week 14 matchup. Look for Caleb Brantley or Larry Ogunjobi to see extra snaps in his stead.
Shelton (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.
Shelton couldn't practice Wednesday or Thursday which doesn't bode well for his availability Sunday. If he's unable to go, expect rookie Caleb Brantley and Larry Ogunjobi to increase their snap counts.
