Still no sign of Evans; Cousins could start in Cleveland

For the third straight practice, wide receiver Lee Evans did not participate in drills.

Evans, whose left foot was in a boot during Saturday’s practice, was not on the field today. Offensive coordinator Cam Cameron confirmed yesterday that Evans’ injury isn’t anything major, and said that he expects the wideout back “pretty quick”.

As you might expect, Evans will almost certainly not play in Thursday’s preseason finale against the Falcons. He’ll be held out as a precaution.

Cornerback Chris Carr (hamstring) and offensive lineman Mark LeVoir (undisclosed) also missed practice today.

Meanwhile, reports out of Cleveland indicate that Browns’ starting left guard Eric Steinbach will be put on Injured Reserve with a back injury.

That could mean - get ready for this - former Ravens offensive lineman Oniel Cousins, who the Browns claimed off waivers yesterday, could be inserted as Cleveland’s new starting left guard.

Cousins struggled mightily here in Baltimore this camp, but he looked better at guard than he did when he entered training camp as a right tackle. The Browns don’t have a ton of depth along the offensive line, meaning Cousins could quickly get thrust into the starting lineup at Steinbach’s vacated left guard spot.

I have a strange feeling Haloti Ngata might be licking his chops at the thought of that matchup Weeks 13 and 16 of this season.
