Browns’ WR Jarvis Landry has played in the last four games with two broken ribs, which HC Kevin Stefanski believes have been causing him issues on the field like his two drops against the Raiders.
“That’s a possibility,” Stefanski said, via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. “I know he battles. It is uncharacteristic. He made a great catch there late in the game. I have high expectations for him. He knows that. He is battling, I would put it. To say that they’re related, I don’t know. I have very high expectations for Jarvis. He has tremendous ball skills. I think he’ll make those plays. I did not have a loss of any faith whatsoever in him. I think he’ll always tell you every ball that comes his way, he should catch. That’s just his mindset.”
Stefanski offered no return timeline for CB Greedy Williams, who remains on injured reserve with a nerve injury in his shoulder.
