Kenny Britt (groin, knee) remained limited at Wednesday's practice.

Britt is likely to play this week after sitting out Weeks 5 and 6 with knee and groin injuries. He's been an unmitigated disaster this year, absorbing just eight-of-23 targets for 121 yards and one touchdown. Even in a favorable matchup against the Titans (his former team), fantasy owners shouldn't go anywhere near Britt in Week 7.

Kenny Britt (knee, groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Coach Hue Jackson said he expects Britt to play, and hopes he's "hungrier and healthier." Britt should be able to get up for this one. The Browns play the Titans, the team that drafted Britt in the first round in 2009.

Browns WR Kenny Britt (groin) is officially inactive for Sunday's Week 6 game at Houston. QB Cody Kessler, DB Reggie Porter, LB James Burgess, OL Marcus Martin, OL Zach Banner and DL. T.Y. McGill are alson inactive for the Browns Sunday.

Britt has been a free-agent bust thus far for the Browns, catching just 8-of-23 targets for 121 yards and touchdown through for games while missing the past two weeks due to injury. His absence clears a path for Ricardo Louis to continue to be a fantasy WR3. Louis has reeled in 10-of-17 targets for 135 yards over the past two weeks and has been targeted 24 percent of the time by Kevin Hogan, the most on the team.

Kenny Britt (knee, groin) is expected to be a game-time decision Week 6 against the Texans.

Britt aggravated his groin injury on Thursday, but he was able to get in a limited practice on Friday, suggesting he has a good shot to suit up. That said, he is playing perhaps the worst football of his career and is not a realistic fantasy option. Ricardo Louis is the dart throw of choice in the Browns' receiver corps.

Kenny Britt (knee, groin) is questionable for Week 6 against the Texans.

Britt aggravated his groin injury in Thursday's practice and came into the week with a knee issue. A complete bust as a free-agent signing and a thorn in the coaches' sides, Britt is probably more doubtful for Sunday.
Oct 13 - 12:22 PM

Kenny Britt left Thursday's practice after aggravating his groin injury.

This doesn't bode well for his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Texans. With Britt's status in doubt and Kevin Hogan set to make his first career start for Cleveland, Houston's defense should be a popular DFS play this week.
Oct 12 - 2:49 PM

Kenny Britt (knee) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.

Britt sat out Week 5, but is now on track to return Sunday against the Texans. A big free-agent bust, he's not a fantasy option with Kevin Hogan starting.
Oct 11 - 1:46 PM

Browns WR Kenny Britt (knee) is inactive for Cleveland’s Week 5 versus the Jets. QB Cody Kessler, LB Jamie Collins, OL Marcus Martin, OL Zach Banner, DL T.Y. McGill and DL Caleb Brantley are also inactive for the Browns.

No surprise here as Britt missed the entire week of practice and the Browns brought in wide receiver Bryce Treggs late in the week. Britt has been nothing short of a disappointment for the Browns after signing a 4-year contract in the offseason, catching just 8-of-23 targets for 121 yards and a touchdown through four games. Ricardo Louis will be the best bet to take over the vacated targets.
Oct 8 - 11:36 AM

Kenny Britt (knee, groin) is doubtful for Week 5 against the Jets.

The Browns will roll with Ricardo Louis and Rashard Higgins as their top two wideouts, followed by Sammie Coates, Kasen Williams, and Bryce Treggs. Britt has been a colossal bust and shouldn't be owned in fantasy.
Oct 6 - 12:16 PM

Kenny Britt (knee, groin) did not practice Thursday.

He was seen riding a bike off to the side. With Hue Jackson just looking for a reason to bench Britt, this may be enough to keep him on the sidelines. Rashard Higgins and Ricardo Louis are next up on the depth chart.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: If Britt sits, the Jets could stick corner Morris Claiborne on Louis. Claiborne has only been targeted 11 times this season and he's permitting the seventh-fewest yards per cover snap among corners (0.52, per PFF). That would leave slot receiver Higgins with a comparative advantage in the slot against Buster Skrine, who's allowing the tenth-most yards per cover snap when in slot coverage (1.14) and a 71.4% catch rate. Britt's absence could also help Duke Johnson, the team's leading receiver, and the Jets are allowing the ninth-most receiving yards to RBs (57.1, per FO). Still, it's an ugly game to target with the second-lowest total on the slate (39.5 points).
Oct 5 - 12:02 PM

Kenny Britt (knee, groin) did not practice Wednesday.

The knee issue stems from last week, but the groin tweak is new. Maybe it's enough for the Browns to finally bench Britt. Cleveland added Bryce Treggs on Wednesday, and Sammie Coates (hamstring) was back at practice.
Oct 4 - 3:09 PM

Browns coach Hue Jackson said he would have benched Kenny Britt in Sunday's loss if not for injuries to his other receivers.

Jackson sounds near the end of the line with Britt, who is becoming a Dwayne Bowe-esque candidate for release. He's been arguably the worst receiver in the league, not hustling and committing horrendous drops. With the Browns' season quickly going in the gutter, they won't have much more patience with 29-year-old Britt.
Oct 2 - 2:41 PM

Kenny Britt caught 3-of-8 targets for 52 yards in the Browns' Week 4 loss to the Bengals.

On the positive end, Britt has averaged 17.7 yards per reception since Corey Coleman was lost to a broken hand. On the negative end, he's caught just 6-of-18 targets over that span. Squaring off against Morris Claiborne next week, Britt is no more than a WR4 option.
Oct 1 - 4:49 PM

Kenny Britt (knee) wasn't listed on the Browns' final injury report for Week 4 against the Bengals.

Britt sat out Wednesday's practice before returning to a limited session on Thursday and finally a full one on Friday. Coming off a 1,000-yard season with the Rams in 2016, Britt has been shockingly ineffective in the early going, producing just five catches for 69 yards and a touchdown through his first three contests.
