BEREA — Browns receiver/kick returner Joshua Cribbs was listed as questionable on the official injury report — meaning there’s a 50-50 chance he’ll play — after not practicing all week with at least three dislocated toes. The Browns play at Jacksonville on Sunday.
“We’ll see (Saturday) morning,” coach Eric Mangini said. “We’d like to push it as much as we can and decide at that point.”
Linebacker Matt Roth was listed as questionable after missing Friday’s practice with an undisclosed illness.
Cribbs was injured on a 37-yard catch in the second quarter Sunday against the Jets. He left the game and didn’t return. The offense stalled for much of the second half in his absence.
He wasn’t available to the media this week.
Without Cribbs, the Browns lose a huge chunk of their offense as well as a Pro Bowl kick returner. Cribbs has 17 catches and runs out of the Wildcat package.
Defensive back Mike Adams (abdomen) was also questionable after not practicing all week. Linebacker Scott Fujita (knee) was the only player ruled out.
Offensive linemen Eric Steinbach (calf) and Floyd Womack (knee) returned to practice in limited roles, along with cornerback Sheldon Brown (shoulder). All are questionable, but Brown said he’ll play, extending his consecutive-games streak to 138.
Steinbach said he suffered a calf bruise Sunday when he got kicked. He said he feels better every day and is day-to-day.
