Considered day-to-day

Coach Kevin Stefanski said Tuesday that Newsome (elbow) is day-to-day, Zac Jackson of The Athletic reports.

Newsome sustained the elbow injury during Monday's loss to Pittsburgh. He recorded three solo tackles before leaving the field. Now, the starting cornerback's status will need to be monitored as Week 3's matchup against the Titans approaches.

Questionable to return

Newsome is considered questionable to return to Monday's tilt with the Titans due to an elbow injury, Bridget Condon of NFL Network reports.

Newsome recorded three solo tackles before exiting the game. The severity of his elbow injury is not known at this time. While he is sidelined, Mike Ford will be a candidate to see increased snaps.

Appears clear for Sunday

Newsome (groin) was absent from the Browns' injury report Wednesday ahead of Week 1 versus the Bengals.

Though he dealt with a groin injury in August, Newsome looks to be healthy enough to play Sunday versus Cincinnati. Even if fellow starter Denzel Ward (concussion) is 100 percent, Newsome is going to have his hands full against Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins.

Returning to practice this week

Newsome (groin) is expected to resume practicing this week, Brad Stainbrook of reports.

Newsome has missed more than a week of practice due to a groin injury, but he's expected to get back on the field this week. It remains to be seen whether the 2021 first-round pick will be able to be cleared in time for Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles, but if not he'll have one more exhibition match, Aug. 26 versus the Chiefs, before the regular season kicks off. The Browns are counting on Newsome to start across from Denzel Ward.

Has groin injury

Newsome is dealing with a groin injury, per coach Kevin Stefanski, Jake Trotter of ESPN reports.

Stefanski didn't provide a return timeline for the cornerback. Newsome didn't play in the Hall of Fame Game against the Jets on Thursday, but neither did the Browns' other projected starters. Cleveland's next preseason game will be Aug. 11 against Washington.
