Browns running back Willis McGahee, who went from his couch to the top of the depth chart not long after Trent Richardson was traded to Indianapolis, has become one of the few bright spots in the post-Hoyer offense.
McGahee’s availability for Sunday at Lambeau Field against the Packers suddenly is in some doubt.
The veteran tailback, who didn’t appear on the Wednesday injury report, missed practice on Thursday with a knee injury.
McGahee has 164 yards rushing in four games with the Browns, but his per-carry average is at a mere 2.8 yards.
The good news for the Browns is that linebacker Jabaal Sheard, out since Week Three with a knee injury, fully participated in practice each of the last two days. He has 1.5 sacks in three 2013 appearances.
