As it turns out, the New York Giants aren't the only team struggling with injuries. In addition to tight end Alex Smith and defensive back Tashaun Gipson, the Cleveland Browns have downgraded wide receivers Mohamed Massaquoi and Travis Benjamin to out for week five.
Massaquoi has been the number one target of rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden over the first four weeks, while Benjamin is supposed to be the next man up.
"[Massaquoi's] a guy that's been consistent all year," said Weeden. "He's made a lot of great plays. He's made plays not only in the run game, I mean blocking, all those things. He's a guy I have a lot of confidence in. I'm hoping comes back sooner rather than later. He's gonna be missed, but I think just consistency. He's a guy that doesn't make a bunch of mistakes and (he's) a competitor, a great teammate and kind of a leader for the rest of the receivers."
With both receivers out, the Browns will rely heavily on their running game and over-the-middle passes to their tight ends.
