Cincinnati Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham is probable for Thursday's game against the Cleveland Browns. Gresham has a knee injury, but the probable designation is supposed to denote a 75 percent chance of playing. It's rare that a player gets that designation and winds up not playing. Whatever the case, Gresham seems like he's close to healthy and should be in action against the Browns.
Gresham has been disappointing this season, however. He's the starting tight end and hasn't missed a game this year, but he has just 33 receptions for 247 yards. Gresham hasn't managed to find the end zone once this season, despite the fact that Andy Dalton is playing relatively well. The Bengals rank 15th in the league with 240.3 passing yards per game and they've got five wins on the season. Gresham just hasn't been a point of focus for the offense.
Fantasy Impact: Gresham is healthy, so fantasy owners shouldn't be worrying about that aspect. But he simply hasn't been very good, though the Browns don't possess an especially good pass defense. Gresham isn't a must-start by any means, but fantasy owners can do worse than him, especially now that A.J. Green is back and theoretically drawing coverage away from Gresham.
