Browns’ Benjamin, Massaquoi ruled out vs. Giants


The Browns will play without two of their top three receivers against the Giants on Sunday.

Receivers Travis Benjamin and Mohamed Massaquoi aren’t on the team plane to New York and have been ruled out, the team has confirmed. The news is not a big surprise, as both Benjamin and Massaquoi had been listed as doubtful.

The absence of Benjamin and Massaquoi will lead to Josh Cribbs getting more balls thrown his way. Cribbs is surprisingly listed as probable despite being knocked out in a brutal collision in the Browns’ last game, against the Ravens.

Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden has played fairly well this season despite getting very little help from his receivers. And it’s going to be tough for him to get much help from his receivers with Benjamin and Massaquoi out against the Giants.
