WR Greg Little Moved Into Starting Lineup Vs. Raiders

One of the most significant changes to come out of the bye week: Pat Shurmur will give rookie Greg Little a start as the X receiver. Little has played a lot, but has started only one game, catching 14 passes for 131 yards without a score. Now, he’ll open games at the X — split wide on the weak side — and then move into the slot in three-receiver sets.

“Greg has played over 200 snaps, but as it goes forward here we’ll just put him at the X,” said Shurmur. “We’ll get him in there and get him starting. I’m optimistic as we move forward.” The Browns have opened with various combinations of receivers, including twice with Brian Robiskie and Mohamed Massaquoi. If the Browns open in a two-receiver set in Oakland, it would be Little and Massaquoi.

    This is great to see. Little and Moore will be playing bigger roles in the offense this week. All I can say is..why not? This isn’t a spectacular offense, the receiving core has been struggling. I felt that Moore was a huge offensive weapon and eventually he disappeared from the offense. It will be exciting to see what Little can do with more reps, I feel like he is going to make a lot of short to mediums catches. I’m happy with that because eventually he’ll be able to break a tackle or two for a big gain. That’s what he is known for
