Cleveland Browns

Speaking Monday, Browns coach Hue Jackson confirmed Baker Mayfield's ankle injury won't affect his Week 7 status. "Baker's fine," Jackson said. Mayfield could get a "limited" tag or two in practice, but he will be out there for his dream Week 7 matchup with the Bucs. The problem is not Mayfield's health but his supporting cast. Mayfield has precious few weapons to throw the ball to. Even still, he's very much on the streaming radar this week.

Tampa Bay Bucs

Jameis Winston (hip) is practicing in full for Week 7 against the Browns. Winston is dealing with a minor hip injury though it shouldn't impact his status for Week 7. Coming off a dominant performance Sunday in Atlanta, Winston should be in the QB1 mix against Cleveland.
