Browns Coach Hue Jackson told reporters Wednesday he’s “very hopeful” that wide receiver Terrelle Pryor and cornerback Joe Haden will be able to play Sunday in Cincinnati.

Both sat out Wednesday’s practice. Pryor suffered a hamstring injury in last week’s loss at Tennessee. Haden missed that game with a groin injury.

“I like guys to practice a little bit before they play,” Jackson sad. “I just do. It is just one of my policies. They need to do something before we get ready to play, but we will give them every opportunity to get out there.”

Pryor said Wednesday he’s hoping to be able to play against the Bengals but doesn’t know yet if he’ll be ready to go by Sunday. He has a team-high 33 catches for 413 yards and three touchdowns.

Haden has missed two games due to injury. He had two interceptions in Week Two against the Ravens.

The Bengals got Pro Bowl tight end Tyler Eifert back on the practice field Wednesday as a limited participant. Eifert has yet to play in 2016 and has missed the last two weeks due to a back injury. The Bengals also listed linebacker Vontaze Burfict as limited after he left practice early with what the team considers a minor ankle injury.
