Browns injury update: Ahtyba Rubin, Dimitri Patterson not practicing

Ahtyba Rubin and Dimitri Patterson were not practicing with the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday.

US PRESSWIRE

The Cleveland Browns were hoping to enter their bye week in a considerably better place than they are, but at least they've shown some good things to this point. However when the team took to the practice field on Tuesday to stay sharp, and some key players were missing, including defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin and cornerback Dimitri Patterson, according to the Akron Beacon Journal's Nate Ulrich on Twitter.

Also listed were defensive tackle Phil Taylor and kicker Phil Dawson.

Rubin missed Sunday's game against the Ravens after sitting out all three practices last week suffering from a calf injury. Patterson has an ankle injury and missed the game on Sunday as well. Even if the two had been ready to practice on Tuesday, it's unlikely that they would have given the fact that it's a bye week and they can afford to miss these practices.

Taylor and Dawson are not expected to miss any significant time and are expected back next week. There's no word on whether or not they missed due to injuries, though Taylor just made his season debut on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens after missing the team's first eight games with injury, so it is possible there was some sort of setback.
