Cleveland Browns Notes, Quotes 2008-10-30
--Any hope the Browns had of Joe Jurevicius making a miracle comeback from complications following a staph infection has vanished. At 4 p.m. Monday, the window for the Browns to begin practicing him while he remains on reserve


"We will be coming out with a statement about Joe toward the end of the week or the beginning of next week about what his status is," coach Romeo Crennel said Wednesday. "Generally, it doesn't look very good."

Jurevicius had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in January. Two weeks later a staph infection developed. He had at least three operations to clean out the staph, most recently on July 1.

Jurevicius would have been the third receiver when everyone was healthy, but he would have been a starter during the four weeks Donte Stallworth was recovering from a strained quadriceps injury.

Jurevicius, 33, said at the end of last year this would be his last season. He still has one year left on his contract.

--The first time the Browns met the Ravens was an emotional game. The Ravens were in their fourth year in Baltimore after leaving Cleveland. The Browns were a stumbling expansion team. The Browns intercepted three passes from Stoney Case -- one by Daylon McCutcheon, one by Lenoy Jones and one by Rahim Abdullah. All the Browns had to show for the takeaways was a 17-10 loss. It was just the second start for rookie quarterback Tim Couch. Couch fumbled on the Browns 1 after being sacked by Peter Boulware. Case scored on the next play.

--Jamal Lewis rushed for 92 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries last season when the Browns beat the Ravens, 33-30, in overtime. In that game, Braylon Edwards caught eight passes for 85 yards.

--The Browns intercepted three passes in two games against the Ravens last season. Leigh Bodden picked off one when the Browns won, 27-13, in Cleveland and Brodney Pool and Sean Jones each had an interception in Baltimore. Pool returned his 100 yards for a touchdown.

--Kellen Winslow caught 21 passes in four games against the Ravens before being held to two catches in the game played Sept. 21.

BY THE NUMBERS: 36 -- The Browns have been outscored by 36 points, 45-9, in the third quarter this season.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I've got this quote right here: 'Without struggle there is no progress.' I live by that quote. It's just going to make me stronger." -- Kellen Winslow, referring to a tattoo on his arm, after being suspended and then returning to the Browns
