Greg Little has shoulder sprain, should be good to go for fantasy owners after bye week

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little has a shoulder sprain. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little sustained a shoulder sprain in the team's Week 9 win over the Baltimore Ravensaccording to Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram. The news comes from head coach Rob Chudzinski, who also said that there's a good chance Little will practice with the team on Tuesday.

Little had a big game against the Ravens, eclipsing Josh Gordon in a rare performance that could earn him more playing time going forward. Little caught seven passes for 122 yards with no touchdowns, with an average of 17.4 yards per reception. Gordon had three receptions for 44 yards.

While he didn't manage to find the end zone, it's clear the Browns would not have been in a position to earn the 24-18 win if Little didn't have a big game. The Browns now face a bye week, before taking on the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11.

Fantasy Impact: If Little is practicing Tuesday, then there should be no worries about his shoulder injury, provided there are no setbacks. He had fallen off in recent weeks due to lacking production, and has not been a smart fantasy option. However, if Jason Campbell likes throwing to him, he could sneak in as a worthy WR3 against Cincinnati.
