Browns Injury Update: Ben Tate, Jordan Cameron

By on 10/01/2014 12:00:00 PM

Running back Ben Tate, whom the Cleveland Browns signed to be their starting running back, was back on the practice field Tuesday for the the first time since suffering a sprained knee in the season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers and although tight end Jordan Cameron said he is feeling better, he believes he will have to deal with his injured AC joint in his shoulder for the duration of the season.

In Tate's absence, Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell, both rookies, have performed admirably. Running backs coach Wilbert Montgomery did say, however, that Tate will resume the starting role in Cleveland according to Nate Ulrich of “That’s what we brought Tate here for, to be the starter,” Montgomery said last week. “He’s the No. 1 running back in this offense." The Browns hope to have Tate back Sunday following their week four bye. 

As for Jordan Cameron, Marc Sessler of reports that although Cameron said "I feel good. I feel healthy," Cameron does expect the sprained AC joint to be a lingering issue. He originally injured the shoulder in an intrasquad scrimmage in August and aggravated it early in the season. The Browns could use him back in their passing attack and are hopeful he and Brian Hoyer can develop come chemistry as they await the return of Josh Gordon from his suspension later in the season.
