Ahtyba Rubin injury: Browns DT returns to practice

Ahtyba Rubin returned to practice with the Cleveland Browns on Monday, and could be active for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys.


The Cleveland Browns are getting healthier, and they're just wrapping up a bye week that has definitely contributed to it. They returned to the practice field on Monday and one significant injury tidbit is the fact that defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin returned to practice, as reported by

Rubin missed three of the past four games, including the team's last game against the Baltimore Ravens. He did not practice during the bye week, but he was not limited on Monday, and could return when the Browns take on the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

He has 21 tackles and a sack this season, and has been instrumental in a Browns defense that has played up to its competition more often than naught this year. With fellow defensive tackle Phil Taylor missing the first eight weeks of the season, Rubin's play has been even more important.

Taylor is back at practice after playing in Week 9, however. Both could be in action on Sunday.
