Josh Cribbs has a hamstring “tweak”

Since head coaches have a proven track record of downplaying player injuries by calling them merely “tweaks,” any time a coach says a player has a “tweak,” there’s a chance it’s something more.

And so when Browns coach Pat Shurmur told reporters on Sunday that receiver Josh Cribbs left practice after getting a “tweak” in his hamstring, Cribbs officially landed on the “Will he play in Week One?” watch list.

The Cribbs injury/tweak/whatever comes at a time when Mohamed Massaquoi still isn’t healthy.  Shurmur said that, while the third-year wideout is getting closer to being ready to play following a “bone bruise,” he likely won’t be available for the third preseason game.
