Mohamed Massaquoi, Travis Benjamin injuries: Browns WRs still hamstrung

Browns wide receivers Mohamed Massaquoi and Travis Benjamin both missed practice on Thursday with hamstring issues, and their status for Sunday's game against the New York Giants is up in the air. Massaquoi missed last Thursday's game against the Baltomore Ravens after injuring his hamstring against the Buffalo Bills. Benjamin originally suffered an undisclosed injury against the Ravens, but it's come to light that it was a hamstring problem.

Fortunately for the Browns, one of the receivers who has to step up in Massaquoi and Benjamin's absence, Josh Gordon, is drawing compliments from offensive coordinator Brad Childress for his improvements in practice, via the Akron Beacon Journal:

"I thought he had his best practice as a professional yesterday. I didn’t see any hesitation. I didn’t see him thinking about anything. I saw him playing fast, catching the football, just doing all the things that a professional receiver, you expect to see."

If either one or both of the two injured wide receivers can't play this weekend, Gordon will have a huge opportunity to stake his claim for more playing time.
