The Browns lost a wide receiver for a few weeks in yesterday’s win, but coach Hue Jackson was coy about what might be coming next.
Higgins won’t need surgery, so they’ll evaluate him in a few weeks. He had caught a touchdown and was having a solid day. In his absence, the Browns had to get into their depth, and Derrick Willies had a key catch-and-run in overtime to set up their game-winning field goal.
That may be why they’re hesitant to go outside at the moment. Jackson said he hadn’t talked to General Manager John Dorsey about the possibility of re-igniting the Dez Bryant talks. He also added “we’ll see” when asked about former Titans wideout Rishard Matthews, who is reportedly visiting.
