Mohamed, Massaquoi, Travis Benajmin still out with hamstring injuries

The Cleveland Browns got back to the practice field on Wednesday, and they were once again without wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi. According to The Plain Dealer, Massaquoi sat with a hamstring injury, which means his status for Sunday's game with the New York Giants is still up in the air. It's unfortunate, given the strong start to the season that he's enjoyed, becoming the primary target for rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden.

Massaquoi missed Thursday's game against the Baltimore Ravens, and suffered the injury in the second half of a loss to the Buffalo Bills. To further make things worse for the Browns, the report states that receiver Travis Benjamin also is dealing with a hamstring injury, which he suffered in last week's game.

As noted by the News-Herald, further absence from Massaquoi and a potential missed game from Benjamin could be beneficial for Jordan Norwood. Norwood says he is ready to get out there and play more after being inactive for the team's first three games. He was active against the Ravens due to Massaquoi's injury and caught four passes for 56 yards, and could be in line for some extended playing time against New York on Sunday.
