BEREA, Ohio - Josh Cribbs has returned to practice and should be ready to play Sunday, Browns coach Eric Mangini said at Friday's news conference.
Cribbs had missed practice throughout the week with a concussion and was initially questionable for Sunday, but barring any setbacks before the game in New Orleans, he will be ready to play.
Bringing Cribbs back into the fold is a big help for the offense, especially with rookie Colt McCoy starting only his second game. The Browns tried to work Cribbs more into the offense last week as a Wildcat, before he went down with an injury.
Mohamed Massaquoi, who is also recovering from a concussion suffered on a hit from Steelers linebacker James Harrison, did not practice Friday. However, Mangini did not rule out Massaquoi playing on Sunday.
Jake Delhomme, Seneca Wallace and John St. Clair also missed practice Friday. Mangini said Wallace is progressing a little quicker than Delhomme, as both of them are recovering from ankle injuries.
