Browns WR Dennis Northcutt has a hairline fracture of his rib. He may not play this weekend against Cincinnati. The injury prevented Northcutt from playing against San Francisco last week.
Also, Browns QB Kelly Holcomb's been hobbling around practice with a hairline fracture in his leg. Holcomb says he wants to play against the Bengals, but Browns coach Butch Davis says he may wait until Sunday to make a quarterback decision.
