Cleveland Browns Strategy and Personnel 2008-10-03


Cleveland Browns Strategy and Personnel 2008-10-03
There was false hope about Donte Stallworth being ready to play the Bengals, but barring any setbacks, he should be on the field when the Browns resume the season on Oct. 13 against the Giants. A pulled quadriceps kept him out of the first four games.


The Browns coaches and front office were told when Stallworth was injured warming up to play the Cowboys Sept. 7 that he would be out 2 1/2 to four weeks, but coach Romeo Crennel did not reveal what the trainers told him until after the Bengals game. Fans impatient to see what the Browns got in free agency started calling him "Dainty Stallworth." Stallworth said he has been pain free since the middle of September, but he still wasn't ready to play.

"This bye week is definitely very helpful for me," Stallworth said. "I look forward to taking off my Cleveland Browns cheerleading outfit and putting on my helmet and shoulder pads this next go-around."

Syndric Steptoe, who has been starting in Stallworth's place, has seven catches.

PLAYER NOTES

--DL Shaun Smith had surgery on Tuesday to repair a broken bone in his left hand. He has played wearing a cast for two weeks.

--The Browns expect Ryan Tucker to play against the Giants Oct. 13. He fractured his hip May 14 and has not played since. When he does return, he will likely be back at right tackle, his position with the Browns from 2002-2006.

--S Sean Jones hopes to be back to play the Giants, but he might not be ready for another week or two. He underwent arthroscopic surgery on Sept. 11. General manager Phil Savage said it is a six-week injury.

--RT Kevin Shaffer is recovering from a broken right hand and a slight concussion.

--LB Willie McGinest returned to practice Wednesday. He missed the last two games with a hamstring injury.

--Rookie TE Martin Rucker practiced Wednesday for the first time since undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery on Aug. 13.
