BEREA – Browns receiver Greg Little returned to practice after missing Thursday with the flu. He’s expected to start Sunday against the Colts.
Left guard Jason Pinkston (illness) missed his second straight day and will be replaced in the starting lineup by John Greco. Pinkston fell ill Sunday and left the win against the Bengals.
Running back Trent Richardson (chest/rib) appeared to be limited again. He’s wearing protecting padding and his role for Sunday against the Colts is uncertain. If he can’t take his normal playing time, Montario Hardesty would get the carries and Chris Ogbonnaya time on third down.
Receiver Travis Benjamin expects to play after missing two games with a hamstring injury. Receiver Mohamed Massaquoi has missed three straight with a hamstring and is less likely to play, despite returning to practice Wednesday in a limited role.
Rookie Josh Cooper, who was activated from the practice squad last week, will likely continue his role as the slot receiver.
