Cleveland Browns Strategy and Personnel 2008-10-30
PLAYER NOTES


--SS Sean Jones has a swollen right knee and did not practice Wednesday. He had arthroscopic surgery on his knee in September.

--WR Donte Stallworth was limited in practice after aggravating a quadriceps injury against the Jaguars.

--A knee injury continues to keep OL Ryan Tucker sidelined. Tucker has practiced once and hasn't played in a game since starting against the Giants on Oct. 13.

--DB Mike Adams practiced on a limited basis Wednesday. He missed the last two games with a hamstring injury.

--DE Corey Williams is nursing a sore shoulder and did not practice Wednesday.

--FB Lawrence Vickers did not practice so he could rest a sore ankle.

--DL Shaun Smith had the hard cast removed from his left hand. He missed the last three games with a broken hand.

GAME PLAN: Derek Anderson threw two interceptions in the third quarter when the Browns played the Ravens in Baltimore in September. One led to the touchdown that put the Ravens ahead, 14-10, and one was returned 32 yards by Ed Reed for a touchdown to make it 21-10.

Anderson has not thrown an interception in more than three games. His span of 105 passes without a pick dates back to the Browns' second possession of the third quarter in Cincinnati Sept. 28. The Browns won all but one of those games, including a 20-12 victory over the Bengals. The Browns can get even with the Ravens in the AFC North if they do not beat themselves.

MATCHUPS TO WATCH: Browns RB Jamal Lewis vs. Ravens LB Ray Lewis. Jamal Lewis carried the ball only 12 times against the Ravens in the September game. He said that was "pathetic." He did not have fewer than 19 carries in any of the four games that followed. Lewis started the season trying to make people miss. He is running over tacklers more. There should be some major collisions when the two Lewis' meet each other.

Browns CB Eric Wright vs. Ravens WR Derrick Mason. Mason caught four passes for 42 yards when these division rivals met in September. He was the Ravens' leading receiver in the game. Wright is playing more confidently now. Wright is playing more confidently than he was five weeks ago.

INJURY IMPACT: The secondary will be very thin if Sean Jones (knee) and Mike Adams (hamstring) have to sit out against the Ravens. Coach Romeo Crennel is hopeful both can play. Getting Shaun Smith back on the defensive line will help the defensive line rotation.
