Video: Browns Survive the Bengals, Stay Alive in Playoff Race 27-19

The Browns started slow, but finally got on track in the second half and did enough to put away the one-win Bengals with a 27-19 win.

Here’s the highlights:

Browns Activate TE David Njoku from the Injured Reserve List

Tight end David Njoku is back, as the Browns announced today that he’s been activated from the injured reserve list.

Njoku was hurt in week two in a win in New Jersey over the Jets.

In addition, the team placed CB Robert Jackson (ankle) on injured reserve.

Njoku, a third-year player out of Miami, appeared in the first two games this season and recorded four receptions for 37 yards and a touchdown. He suffered a wrist injury in the team’s Week 2 contest against the New York Jets. Njoku was placed on injured reserve on Sept. 20 and was designated for return on Nov. 20.

Jackson appeared in six games and recorded three special teams tackles.

Odell Beckham Jr. Clears Up Report He Wants Out of Cleveland and the Browns

Odell Beckham Jr. took to Twitter on Friday to quiet the firestorm that erupted after his vague remarks Thursday about whether or not he wants to be back with the Browns next season, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

“I NEVER said I was not happy in Cleveland, just like everyone else I’m hopeful for better results. Period. Next story plzz,” he said on Twitter.

But Beckham revealed on Thursday that he’s not certain he’ll be back next year or even that he’ll want to, and he acknowledged that he can’t endure another season like this, in which the Browns are underperforming and he’s not getting enough opportunities to help.

“No one knows what the future holds tomorrow,’’ Beckham said Thursday. “I couldn’t tell you what’s going to happen. My locker is right beside one of the men (Jarvis Landry) that means the most to me in the world. I think about just being able to come to work and see him every single day and how special this could be. I couldn’t sit here and tell you whether I’m going to be here, want to be here, don’t want to be here.

“This is exactly where I’m at now and I wouldn’t rather be anywhere else. God has a plan. In the offseason, everything will figure itself out. I feel like I’ve been here before, answering questions about the next team when I’m on a team already. That’s just something I’m going to tune out for right now. Catch me in the offseason and we’ll see what happens. I don’t know God’s plan.”

Browns Starting Free Safety Damarious Randall Doesn’t Make the Trip to Pittsburgh in ‘Coaching Decision’

The Browns will be minus starting safety Damarious Randall on Sunday when they take on the Steelers at Heinz Field, but it’s not due to injury or the death threats he received after the first game between the biter AFC North foes.

Randall was left behind when the Browns headed for Pittsburgh Saturday, and reports say that it’s a ‘coaching decision’ as to why he didn’t head the 90 miles to Pittsburgh.

A league source said the decision is not related to the death threats Randall received from Steelers fans after he hit helmet-to-helmet that left rookie receiver Dontae Johnson concussed when the teams met at First Energy Stadium a few weeks back.

Sheldrick Redwine is listed as Randall’s backup, and likely will get the start at the free safety spot with Randall back in Cleveland.
