CB - CLE
Week 7 Outlook
The Browns activated defensive back Terrance Mitchell (wrist) from injured reserve Friday. Tight end Pharaoh Brown (shoulder) was placed on IR to make room on the active roster.
Mitchell fractured his wrist September 30 against the Raiders and was designated for return from IR on November 21st. Week 14 is the first week he was eligible to play in a game and it appears he will do just that against the Panthers. Before landing on IR, Mitchell recorded 19 tackles, two forced fumbles and an interception in four starts.
The Browns announced Wednesday that they have designated cornerback Terrance Mitchell (wrist) for return from injured reserve. He can practice with the team but will not be eligible to play in a game until Week 14.
Mitchell recorded 19 tackles, two forced fumbles and an interception in four starts before landing on IR with a broken wrist.
Browns cornerback Terrance Mitchell finished Week 1 with six solo tackles.
Interesting. Mitchell provided nice IDP numbers with cornerback EJ Gaines out because of injury. The spot opposite lock-down corner Denzel Ward could become very beneficial to IDP players looking for a safe floor. This is a situation to watch.
Kyle Fuller was having a horribly awful game on Sunday. The coaching staff elected to bench him no matter what John Fox tells the media. Terrance Mitchell was the next man up and played just okay. He had a nice pass deflection near the end zone and also recorded a tackle.
I would not be surprised if Kyle Fuller is starting for the Bears again next week. However, if he does not start playing better, Terrance Mitchell might have a chance to start. This does not mean you should run out and grab Mitchell. No one in this Bears secondary deserves a fantasy roster spot.
Terrance Mitchell made one play in the Bears game on Saturday, and it was a big one. He intercepted a deep ball over the middle by out jumping the receiver. It was a great catch and interception off of Matt Hasselbeck.
Terrance Mitchell is one of the guys who could be on the bubble. After the first four CBs, the rest of the open roster positions are still available. Mitchell helped make his case by snagging the interception, but even if he makes the roster he will not have any fantasy value in IDP leagues.
