Auston English DL CLE Aug 16 '77
Browns declared DE Auston English, QB Thaddeus Lewis, RB Montario Hardesty, RB Peyton Hillis, C/G Steve Vallos, CB Dimitri Patterson and S Ray Ventrone inactive for Sunday's game against the Texans.
No surprises here. English (knee), Hardesty (calf), Patterson (knee) and Hillis (hamstring) were all ruled out early in the week. The only mild surprise is Ventrone (hamstring), the Browns' top special teamer that was listed as probable. Mohamed Massaquoi (concussion) is ready to go.
Auston English DL CLE Jul 22 '77
Browns signed DE Auston English off their practice squad.
The injuries Marcus Benard suffered in his motorcycle accident are apparently more severe than originally thought. Coach Pat Shurmur hinted that Benard's season is over. English bounced around between the Browns' and Bills' practice squads last season after going undrafted out of Oklahoma.
