Browns Injury Update: Alex Smith, James-Michael Johnson Still Not Practicing

The Cleveland Browns are still without tight end Alex Smith and rookie linebacker James-Michael Johnson, both who did not practice Thursday as the Browns prepare for the Buffalo Bills this weekend.

The Browns probably won't miss the two players much. Smith has just four catches for 29 yards, though he is part of key offensive packages, and Johnson has yet to record a statistic this season.

Johnson suffered an oblique injury in Cleveland's preseason finale against the Chicago Bears, and was originally expected to miss four weeks. Johnson, if that time frame holds, could be back for the Browns' next game.

Smith suffered a concussion against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1 and is considered day-to-day. With how seriously the league are treating head injuries, it's possible that Smith will be held out of the Buffalo game as a precaution.
