Ever since the Cleveland Browns dropped the Week 6 game against the New England Patriots, it has been full steam ahead in preparation for the Baltimore Ravens.
Perhaps part of the reason to turn the page is based on that old adage that misery loves company.
Both the Browns and Ravens have similar issues this season.
They have lost winnable games often in the 4th quarter, and their injuries seem to compound week after week.
Here is the Thursday injury report for the Week 7 game.

Notable information to glean from it is outlined below:
1. Three Browns Did Not Practice
#Browns Alex Van Pelt said Hjlate Froholdt will be ready to start at RG if Wyatt Teller is ruled out.

Ever since Wednesday, there has been discussion that Teller, who suffered a calf injury during the Week 6 Patriots game, would not be able to play against Baltimore.
Denzel Ward (concussion) still missing along with Wyatt Teller (calf).#Browns

Ward and Haeg are in the concussion protocol so the timeline for return for either player is unknown.
2. Three Browns Were Limited In Practice
Myles Garrett who appeared to reaggravate his left shoulder during the Patriots game also was limited in practice.
The Browns need all three of these players to get healthy and be on the field as soon as possible.
3. The Ravens Are Banged Up Too
Perhaps it is to be expected, but the Ravens are dealing with their share of injuries also.
Ravens TE Mark Andrews (knee) and RB J.K. Dobbins missed their second straight practices

Both are dealing with knee injuries.
As is always the case, Friday’s practice will indicate if both teams are likely to have their key players on the field on Sunday afternoon.
