Jordan Cameron misses Thursday practice, can't be trusted in fantasy

The Browns tight end looks increasingly unlikely to make it back onto the field. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns tight end Jordan Cameron missed the team's practice again Thursday as he deals with a concussion, according to Akron Beacon Journal beat writer Nate Ulrich. The tight end looks increasingly unlikely to play Sunday, or perhaps again this season.

The tight end has 848 yards and seven touchdowns this season, though the majority of that production came early in the year -- five of his seven touchdowns came in the season's first four weeks, and he only has one touchdown since Week 7. No other tight end on the Browns' roster has been more than a cursory participant in the season,

Fantasy impact: It looks more and more like Cameron won't play again this season, and the team doesn't have much reason to try to rush him back onto the field. Even in a tremendously disappointing second half, Cameron did have an 18-fantasy-point performance in Week 14, and he was getting enough looks to at least theoretically have value.

As it is, though, fantasy owners can't possibly go into Week 16 counting on Cameron. He shouldn't be dropped until it's clear that he's out, but everyone should have a tight end on their roster that is a sure-fire active.
