The Cleveland Browns had eight players return to the practice field on Wednesday. The most notable is safety Grant Delpit as the team opened up his practice window as he prepares to return from injured reserve. Meanwhile, the Houston Texans had four players that didn’t participate in practice, three of which were pass rushers.

Head Coach Kevin Stefanski said there was a chance Delpit could return this week. Limited, there’s no guarantee Delpit will return, but because he’s in the practice window, he doesn’t count against the roster until he’s activated. Even as the Browns hope to have him back sooner, that window could last up to three weeks before he would revert to IR, ending his season. In other words, the Browns would have to win the AFC Championship before this could become a problem. It’s a no-lose situation from their end.

If Delpit can return this week, that’s a huge benefit. Given how well Ronnie Hickman has played and with Juan Thornhill also practicing, the Browns could have a nice trio, giving them different options in how they want to play the opponent.


Of the eight players that returned to practice, all of them were limited including players held out for rest. Notably, running back Pierre Strong Jr. returned to practice after being taken out of the game against the Cincinnati Bengals on a cart with a back injury.

Wide receiver Amari Cooper did not practice Wednesday, but told the media he was playing this week and could’ve played last week. The team seems focused on getting him as healthy as possible.

Linebacker Jordan Kunaszyk was able to be a full participant after working through a calf injury.

On the Texans side, edge rushers Will AndersonJonathan Greenard and Jerry Hughes were all held out of practice. In Anderson’s case, it may be an attempt to further recuperate the high-ankle sprain he’s been dealing with. It may also be the case for both Greenard and Hughes, but Greenard hasn’t played since injuring his ankle against the Browns.
