The injury report for both the Arizona Cardinals and the Cleveland Browns was released on Thursday and there is one big, important name with his status still very up in the air for Sunday's game in Cleveland. Receiver John Brown, who has been bothered with a hamstring injury for a couple of weeks, sat out of practice for the second day in a row.

According to Mike Jurecki, Brown had a specialist fly in from Florida to treat him to see if he can't get better. The general feeling right now is if he is able to practice on Friday he will give it a go on Sunday. If not, it would seem very unlikely he could play.

Also a non-participant was receiver Brittan Golden, sitting out with a groin injury. Tight end Darren Fells (shoulder), linebacker Alex Okafor (shoulder) and cornerback Jerraud Powers (hamstring) also sat out, but, aside from Okafor, who has a very slight chance of playing on Sunday, they are not going to be available. There is nothing surprising there.

Center Lyle Sendlein (ankle) and defensive tackle Frostee Rucker (quad) were upgraded from a DNP Wednesday to limited on Thursday. Linebacker Dwight Freeney (finger) was still limited, while cornerback Justin Bethel (who will start on Sunday at cornerback for the first time in his career) (foot) and safety Deone Bucannon (elbow) were upgraded to full.
