The Browns sent both of their Week 1 starters home because of curfew violations, Mike Garafolo of NFL.com reports. Both injured players were not allowed to be with the team during the 33-17 loss, adding more tumult to a Browns season that’s been chock full of it.
Britt, who has battled injuries and poor play this season, received a warning from the Browns, with Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com reporting newly acquired pass-catcher’s roster spot is not a given any longer. Cabot reports Britt was told he could be cut if he doesn’t “shape up.”
Knee and groin maladies sidelined the underperforming free agent signing the past two weeks. Those ailments stood to make Britt inactive in Houston, but Cabot reports Britt’s play was a factor in the Hue Jackson-led staff deeming him inactive against the Texans.
Britt is questionable for Sunday’s Titans game in Cleveland.
Both Britt and Coleman met with Cleveland’s coaching staff and apologized, Garafolo reports. Coleman is on IR with a broken hand. Britt has been a disappointment since signing a four-year, $32.5MM deal in March, making just eight catches for 121 yards through four games, and this incident did not help the ninth-year veteran’s stock with the franchise.
