Cribbs back practicing with Browns
BEREA, Ohio -- Browns wide receiver Josh Cribbs is practicing for the first time since sustaining a concussion in Cleveland's loss at Baltimore.
Cribbs was injured in the first quarter Thursday night, when he was flattened while returning a kickoff by Ravens linebacker Dannell Ellerbe. The impact knocked Cribbs' helmet off and his head smacked the ground as he fell. Cribbs did not return to the 23-16 loss and sat out practice Monday. Cribbs had been in on six offensive plays and appeared to have a major role in the game plan before he was injured.
Browns wide receivers Mohamed Massaquoi (hamstring) and Travis Benjamin (undisclosed), safety T.J. Ward (broken thumb) and tight end Alex Smith (concussion) were not on the practice field Wednesday. Ward had surgery a few days ago.
