Browns PK Cundiff questionable

The SportsXchange

Cleveland Browns kicker Billy Cundiff (thigh) returned to limited practice Friday and is listed as questionable to play against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

"He kicked. He seems to have no problems with that," Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said. "We'll see tomorrow how he feels. We have a plan and we'll stick to that plan going forward."

Punter Spencer Lanning practiced as the kicker Wednesday and Thursday, and could handle the kicking duties if Cundiff can't go Sunday and the team opts not to bring in a free agent.

"We have possibilities with Spencer, as well as other guys that are out there," said Chudzinski.

--QB Brandon Weeden (thumb) is out and did not practice Friday. Chudzinski said Weeden did some throwing for the first time Friday and is "progressing." Weeden will throw again Saturday.

--RB Willis McGahee feels more comfortable in the offense having practiced all week. He played in the game against the Vikings with only one day of practice.

"I expect he will improve and has improved," Chudzinski said. "Just getting back out there and playing again, just from a physical standpoint, getting back into it has been good for him. I think he'll continue to keep improving. Mentally, again, he's familiar with the system and the terminology so that really hasn't been an issue at all."

--WR Greg Little has lost his starting job due to continued issues with drops, but is on the kick return team as the Browns continue to look for ways to get the ball in his hands.

"Greg is a hard worker to begin with. I think it's given him the opportunity to refocus on some things," Chudzinski said. "Obviously, we've been able to get him on the kick off, which has been a good thing. As I've seen this week, he's making plays so that's step one. Let's carry it over to the field, and I expect Greg to do that."

--LB Jabaal Sheard (knee) has not practiced this week and is listed as doubtful.

-- LB Quentin Groves (ankle) is in a walking boot and has been ruled out this week.

--DE Billy Winn (quadriceps) did not practice again Friday and has been ruled out this week.

-- G Shawn Lauvao was limited with a thigh injury. He says he's taking it "day by day" and was listed as questionable.

-- G Oniel Cousins (chest) returned to full practice and is probable.
