Thursday Night Injury Update- Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens


Mohamed Massaquoi (Hamstring) – He did not practice all week and this is not great news for anyone that owns any part of the Browns. It seems as though Massaquoi can never stay healthy and at the right time to gain some sort of chemistry with his QB. The passing game will be reliant on some young receivers, Travis Benjamin, Josh Gordon and the unsought out Greg Little. The Ravens have given up 117 rushing yards per game and 5 TDs so far this season. The fact that the Browns may get behind early will limit the opportunities for Richardson to produce a big day on the ground, but he may be a good target in the passing game. The young receivers may get an extended opportunity to perform and if things do go right for one of them, that player may move right into the WR1 role.

Health Status: OUT
Fantasy Impact: Negative, Whoever is reception leader will leapfrog both Massaquoi and Little

Trent Richardson (Knee) – He has practiced all week and is expected to resume the role he has been accustomed to so far this season. With Richardson we have not yet learned what we can count on for fantasy production. So far he has totaled 175 yards on 50 carries with two TDs and also has 11 catches for 65 yards and a TD. He is coming off a tough game against the Buffalo Bills, where he rushed for 27 yards on only 12 carries. He is trying to become the first to break a 100 yards for a single running back this season against the Baltimore defense. I don’t see it happening but 100 all purpose yards is certainly a possibility with at least a score.

Health Status: Probable
Fantasy Impact: Positive, He may be the leading receiver and the Ravens aren’t the team that no one can run on like in years prior.
