Browns CB Jason McCourty is not on the team's final Week 10 injury report.
He hasn't played since Week 6. McCourty played borderline-shutdown coverage in the first month and a half of the season. Red-hot Marvin Jones is the Lions' likeliest receiver to draw McCourty's shadow coverage in Week 10. Fri, Nov 10, 2017 03:32:00 PM

Browns declared CB Jason McCourty (ankle), DE Myles Garrett (concussion), DL Larry Ogunjobi (groin), S Jabrill Peppers (toe), DL Trevon Coley (neck), QB Kevin Hogan, and OT Zach Banner inactive for Week 8 against the Vikings.

Garrett did not travel with the team to London, and McCourty never looked likely to play. Already struggling, the Browns defense now looks like an even better matchup for Case Keenum and company. Both McCourty and Garrett should have a good shot to return after the bye.

Browns CB Jason McCourty (ankle) is doubtful for Week 8 against the Vikings.

He's not going to play in London. McCourty is Pro Football Focus' No. 3 cover corner out of 113 qualifiers, so this is a big boost to Stefon Diggs' (groin) matchup on the outside, as long as he plays. Diggs is a WR2/3.

Browns CB Jason McCourty (ankle) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Unless he can get in at least a limited practice on Friday, McCourty has little chance of suiting up Sunday against Minnesota. His absence would come as an upgrade to both Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen.

Browns CB Jason McCourty (ankle) is inactive for Sunday’s Week 7 games versus the Titans.

Kevin Hogan, S Jabrill Peppers, LB James Burgess, OL Marcus Martin, OL Zach Banner and DL T.Y. McGill are also inactive. McCourty injured his ankle in Friday’s practice and was not able to be ready to play versus his former team. The absence of Pro Football Focus’ top graded cover corner on the season is a bonus for both Rishard Matthews and Eric Decker in a matchup that was already favorable for Marcus Mariota and the Tennessee passing game. Briean Boddy-Calhoun will occupy McCourty’s spot in base defense while Michael Jordan will take over in sub packages.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer expects Browns CB Jason McCourty (questionable, ankle) to be inactive for Week 7 against the Titans.

He tweaked his ankle at Friday's practice and per Cabot, it "wasn't looking good for him" this morning. McCourty has been the league's top cover corner according to PFF's grades this season, so this would obviously be a major blow to the Browns' secondary. It would also be an upgrade for all Titans pass-catchers including Rishard Matthews and Eric Decker.

Browns CB Jason McCourty injured his ankle in Friday's practice and is questionable for Week 7 against the Titans.

It's very notable, as McCourty is Pro Football Focus' No. 1 cover corner out of 108 qualifiers after six weeks. His loss would be a huge boost to Rishard Matthews, Eric Decker, and the Titans' passing attack on Sunday. McCourty limited DeAndre Hopkins to two catches for 19 yards on three targets in Week 6, though Hopkins was able to secure a short touchdown to save his fantasy day.

The Browns have talked to Jason McCourty about moving to safety.

It's no surprise given the Browns' weak depth chart at safety. McCourty will start out at corner, but he could end up working at multiple spots during the offseason program. Coach Hue Jackson did say he wants McCourty to settle into one position before the start of the season.

Browns agreed to terms with CB Jason McCourty, formerly of the Titans, on a two-year, $6 million contract.

The deal includes $2 million guaranteed. The Browns were McCourty's first visit after he was cut by the Titans last month. Going on 30, McCourty was limited to four games by groin issues in 2015, but bounced back as a mid-range starter in 2016. Cleveland offers excellent opportunity for playing time, as the rebuilding Browns have questionable veteran depth and surprisingly little young secondary talent for as many draft picks as they've had the past two seasons. Drafted by Jeff Fisher in Tennessee, McCourty will be reuniting with DC Gregg Williams, whom he played for in 2013.

Free agent CB Jason McCourty is meeting with the Browns.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports McCourty is taking a physical, suggesting both sides are serious about a deal. McCourty missed all but four games in 2015 with groin injuries, but he returned as a reasonable starter last year. As long as the money is right, McCourty has the look of a low-risk, upside signing.

According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, free agent CB Jason McCourty "might be fortunate" to earn half of the $7 million salary he was scheduled to earn from the Titans in 2017.

McCourty was let go by the Titans on Thursday, partially because he balked at taking a pay cut. One "informed opinion" told Reiss that Leon Hall's one-year, $2 million contract with the Giants last season might be a good comparison for McCourty, though Reiss feels he could do "a bit better than that." With Malcolm Butler pushing for a trade, McCourty could make sense for the Patriots, who employ Jason's twin brother Devin at free safety.

ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss believes New England and free agent CB Jason McCourty is an "ideal match."

McCourty was informed he'll be released on Thursday. He's entering his age-30 season and has been a pretty reliable starter for much of his career. The Patriots have been in the market for cornerback help after losing Logan Ryan to the Titans as a free agent and RFA Malcolm Butler possibly leaving town. McCourty, of course, is also Patriots FS Devin McCourty's twin brother.

Titans released CB Jason McCourty.

The move clears $7 million in cap space and leaves behind no dead money. The No. 203 overall pick of the 2009 draft, McCourty was the Titans' longest-tenured player. Per USA Today's Tom Pelissero, the sides couldn't agree on a restructured contract. McCourty was mentioned as a candidate for release as far back as January. Limited to four games by injury in 2015, McCourty's play took a dive last season. He turns 30 in August. Dots will be connected between McCourty and his brother Devin in New England, but the Pats aren't in the habit of handing out feel-good contracts.

Terry McCormick of TitanInsider considers RCB Jason McCourty a candidate for release.

McCourty was passable at cornerback this season but is coming off a shoulder injury and is due a $7 million salary. Even if the Titans keep him, McCormick believes McCourty would "have to fight to retain his starting spot." McCourty has spent his entire eight-year career in Tennessee and might be amenable to a pay cut.

Titans RCB Jason McCourty (chest, shoulder) is questionable for Week 17.

McCourty looks on track to return after practicing the last two days. He’ll be a game-time decision against Houston.
