Dansby, who has missed the past four games with an MCL injury, is inching toward a return, but his status for Sunday's game against the Panthers is unclear at this stage.

Dansby (knee) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Dansby has not played since Week 11 and would have been a risky play as the fantasy playoffs arrive anyhow. Tank Carder should step into the starting lineup.

Dansby is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

If Dansby isn't 100 percent, some snaps at middle linebacker will likely go to Tank Carder. With fantasy playoffs here, the veteran isn't likely to be an IDP option for the rest of the season.

Dansby will sit his third straight game, giving Craig Robertson and Christian Kirksey another opportunity to rack up high tackle totals for the Browns.

Dansby (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts, according to the Akron Beacon Journal's Nate Ulrich.

Coach Mike Pettine noted Wednesday that Dansby (knee) is "getting closer" to a return, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Dansby has now missed two straight games due to the injury, but at least appears to be heading in the right direction. If he can log some practice time this week, he'll likely attempt to suit up Sunday afternoon against the Colts. However, if Dansby doesn't progress as expected, look for another big week out of Craig Robertson and Christian Kirksey.

Dansby (knee) is inactive for Sunday's matchup with the Falcons.

Dansby is believed to have suffered a sprained MCL in Week 11, so it's no surprise to see him sit out just a week after sustaining the injury. The Browns' combined tackle leader will have to wait until at least Week 13 against the Bills to add to his total. Look for Christian Kirksey or Tank Carder to see added reps in in the base defense, with Craig Robertson to see time in the nickel package, per Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram.
