The Browns traveling road show will continue on Monday night as they travel to San Francisco for their third prime time game of 2019, this time against the unbeaten San Francisco 49ers.
The 49ers may be unbeaten, but their level of competition is such to where they haven’t exactly had the toughest slate as of yet, beating the Buccaneers, Cardinals and Steelers in what was backup quarterback Mason Rudolph’s first NFL start.
If you check out betting on sports online you can see that many of the Vegas oddsmakers seem to still be behind the Niners, as they come into the game as slight 3.5 point favorites to get to 4-0, sending the Browns under .500 at 2-3.
One big boost for the Browns took place on Friday, as it was announced that leading wide out Jarvis Landry would be back with the team and able to play, despite having a concussion last week in the 40-25 road victory against the Baltimore Ravens.
“Really glad to get him back,” Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens said on Friday at the team’s training facility in Berea.
“He is an integral part of the offense, and it is good to have him back. He looked like Jarvis.”
Landry left the third quarter of Sunday afternoon’s 15-point AFC North victory in Baltimore after suffering a concussion. The team reports he is also working through a shoulder injury, but for now it does not appear that will keep him out of any action.
In the win that evened up the Browns record at 2-2 on the season, Landry put up a career-best 167 yards while the Ravens focused in on stopping Odell Beckham, who caught just two passes for 20 yards.
In his six seasons in the NFL Landry has never missed a game. He leads the team with 18 catches thus far in 2019 for 328 yards.
The club may also get the services of a couple other receivers back, as reports say that both Antonio Callaway and Rashard Higgins are getting close to being back on the field.
“I think they are both coming along. Callaway looks good. He needs to continue to try and build his endurance,” Kitchens said.
“There is a difference between endurance and in shape. He is in good shape, but endurance is being able to play play after play after play after play, and you need endurance more than anything in the game of football.
“Higgins is getting better. He continues to get better each and every day. He made it a little further along today so we will see where we are.”
Monday kickoff in San Francisco is slated for 8:15pm.
