The Cleveland Browns had only one player completely miss practice on Wednesday Cleveland Browns Hats , and it’s a given receiver Rashard Higgins will miss the team’s Week 6 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers.But everyone else, including linebacker James Burgess, has a real chance to play this week, albeit with some limitations.Let’s look at Wednesday’s injury reports to see where both teams are at as they begin preparing for this week’s game.Browns:LB James Burgess (knee), limitedBurgess has missed the last two games with a knee injury. He did not practice at all last week, so seeing him at least get in a limited session has him potentially on track to return to his key reserve role in Week 6.TE Seth DeValve (hamstring), limitedSeth DeValve played just nine snaps last week after being limited in Week 1 with a quad injury, then missing Weeks 2 through 4 with his lingering hamstring issue. Getting DeValve back on the field and at full speed will be a big boon for a team that needs some better blocking help from its tight ends, as well as some sure-handed options for Baker Mayfield down the field.CB E.J. Gaines (groin), limitedThe Browns really needed someone to step up in Terrance Mitchell’s absence, and first-man up E.J. Gaines answered the call. After missing the end of preseason and first two games with an ankle injury, Gaines has been an integral boundary corner. Hue Jackson didn’t mention his groin injury as a concern during Wednesday’s press conference, so we’ll monitor his practice participation throughout the week. Losing him for the big test the Philip Rivers-led Chargers present would be a significant blow.OL Desmond Harrison (knee), limitedThis is not what you want to see heading into a big game. Desmond Harrison fully practiced through a shoulder injury in Week 4 Cleveland Browns Womens Hoodie , wasn’t listed on the injury report last week, and is now dealing with a knee injury. We haven’t talked about this much, but the team would most likely go back to Joel Bitonio at left tackle should Harrison be forced to miss this week’s game. That would potentially mean the first start for rookie Austin Corbett at left guard. Corbett played three snaps last week after being a healthy scratch for two of the first four weeks.Rashard Higgins (knee), did not practiceIt’s no secret that Higgins is going to miss the next couple of weeks with an MCL sprain. Don’t look for any miracle recoveries and game-time decision type mysteries. Higgins is out in Week 6, and Rod Streeter and rookies Derrick Willies and Damion Ratley will compete for his snaps.Damarious Randall (heel), limitedDespite being banged up and dealing with a lingering heel issue, Damarious Randall has gutted it out and played pretty well over the last few weeks. After not practicing at all last Wednesday, Randall got in two limited sessions before drawing a questionable tag before Sunday’s win over Baltimore. He played every snap in Week 5. Expect the Browns to continue managing his practice reps to keep him fresh for Sundays. Chargers:OT Joe Barksdale (knee), limitedWR Travis Benjamin (foot), did not practiceDE Joey Bosa (foot), did not practiceLB Jatavis Brown (groin), did not practiceTE Virgil Green (rib), full practiceOT Russell Okung (groin), limitedC Mike Pouncey (knee) Womens Customized Cleveland Browns Jerseys , limitedDT Damion Square (shoulder), fullK Caleb Sturgis (quad), limitedLB Kyzir White (knee), did not practiceJoe Barksdale, Travis Benjamin, Joey Bosa, Russell Okung, and Kyzir White all missed last week’s 26-10 win over the Oakland Raiders.ESPN’s Eric Williams said Bosa will not even travel to Cleveland for this week’s matchup. He also reported Benjamin was in a walking boot and was unlikely to play this week.Barksdale, Okung, and Mike Pouncey are the big question marks the Browns should be monitoring. While you’d imagine losing both starting tackles last week would be a big blow for any team, it didn’t end up mattering as the Chargers rolled. Sam Tevi filled in at left tackle, and Trent Scott locked down the right side. Scott, an undrafted former walk-on at Grambling State, was promoted to the team’s active roster last week before making his first NFL start. Tevi was a 2017 fourth-round pick from Utah.Bonus points if you can explain in the comments how you knew either of those two names before this reading.Despite the pretty easy win White Kevin Zeitler Jersey , the Chargers did struggle running the ball, which is where you’ll see the most issues with so many offensive line changes. They finished with only 74 yards on 2.5 yards per carry. Rivers still threw for for 333 yards and two scores and was only sacked once without Barksdale and Okung last week.Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said both tackles will be limited and will probably be game-time decisions for Week 6.Rookie linebacker Kyzir White will probably not play after having a minor knee procedure a few weeks ago, but Jatavis Brown has been making plays in his absence. Lynn said Brown would be limited this week, although he didn’t participate Wednesday. Losing both would mean a much less proven linebacker corps, giving the Browns a possible exploitable matchup this weekend.Carl Nassib has some explaining to do over Hard Knocks There were plenty of fun storylines surrounding the Cleveland Browns that came out of the first episode of Hard Knocks, the HBO series that provides an inside, albeit edited, look at the team during training camp.One standout performance that everyone was talking about the next morning came from second-year defensive end Carl Nassib, who shared some financial advice on the power of compound interest to his fellow linemen: While everyone had a good laugh about it, even if there are still some lingering questions about the financial merit of Nassib’s advice, one person in particular did not appreciate Nassib’s language - his grandmother.It’s a good reminder that the cameras are always on when it comes to Hard Knocks and you never know who will be watching. The Browns will be back at practice today from 3 p.m. to 5:55 p.m., and the next episode of Hard Knocks will air Tuesday at 10 p.m.
