Ray Horton was in Cleveland briefly as a part of Rob Chudzinski’s staff that ended up being fired immediately following their first season on the job.

Tight end Jordan Cameron has been ruled out for Sunday, while linebacker Karlos Dansby is doubtful to play and linebacker Jabaal Sheard is listed as questionable. Cameron has been out with a concussion since getting hit
The Cleveland Browns used to be deep on defense. Remember that? They had more defensive linemen than they knew what to do with.

While the Cleveland Browns lost the game on Sunday, they also suffered several major injuries on defense. One of the most notable losses was linebacker Karlos Dansby, who left the game early with a knee issue and whose long-term status remains unclear Dansby, 33, is one of the team’s emotional leaders and is the leading

My dreams of watching the Browns face Charlie Whitehurst again, are apparently not going to come true.
The first quarter of the NFL season is behind us so it’s a natural point to stop and take a look at the Cleveland Browns and see Ray Farmer and Mike Pettine’s portfolio of players to see whose stock is rising and whose is falling.

Many areas to be fixed over the course of one bye week.
