The Browns listed defensive lineman Phil Taylor (knee) and wide receiver Rodney Smith (hamstring) out for Week 8 against Oakland. Deemed questionable were defensive end Billy Winn (quadriceps) and safety Jim Leonhard (ankle).

Meanwhile, defensive end Desmond Bryant (wrist), outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo (shoulder), defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin (ankle) and cornerback K'Waun Williams (concussion) were all labeled probable.

Browns looking for a back to 'separate himself'
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said the team is looking for one running back to "separate himself," according to ESPN.

Shanahan stressed that he's been happy with the play of Ben Tate, Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West, but added that he would love it if one of them stepped up. "We got a bunch of solid guys who do a good job," Shanahan said. "For one of those to get the bulk of the carries and take off, then that’s up to them. They got to show us they’re ahead of the other guys." 

Shanahan has had a history of riding one primary back in the past. "I’ve never had to rotate a bunch of running backs, because usually I’ve had a running back who’s usually able to separate himself from the others," he said. 

Tate is currently receiving the bulk of the carries for the club, but the team has mixed in Crowell and West frequently.

Fantasy Analysis | 1414103211
Rebound seems likely for Ben Tate
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

With what seemed like a tailor-made matchup Week 7 at Jacksonville, Browns running back Ben Tate had by far his worst performance in three games since returning from a knee injury, gaining just 36 yards on 16 carries. So is he still a safe bet with what seems like another favorable matchup Week 8 against Oakland?

Well, as safe as any non-pass catching back can be in today's NFL. If the Browns fall behind by a couple scores, as unexpectedly happened against the Jaguars, he'll disappear from the game plan. But of course, the Browns have been competitive in every other game this season, so you have no reason to believe they won't be against a winless Raiders team.

And the numbers all work in Tate's favor. The Raiders rank 29th against the run, allowing 145.3 yards per game, and have given up the third-most Fantasy points per game to running backs. Andre Ellington and Branden Oliver have performed nicely against them the last two weeks.

Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank Tate about 15th among running backs despite the disappointment of last week, and I'm with them. I don't see a scenario where I sit him.

Browns DT Ahtyba Rubin has shot at playing Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Mike Pettine spoke optimistically Thursday about the possible return to action of Browns defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin on Sunday against visiting Oakland.

Pettine declared that Rubin, who has been sidelined the last two games with an ankle injury, practiced well on Wednesday.

The Browns could certainly use a healthy Rubin. Their defensive line has been decimated by injuries in recent weeks.

Browns QB Brian Hoyer: 'Maybe it's good we lost last week'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer has expressed both anger over his effort Sunday at Jacksonville and hopefulness that the dud of the team performance will prove to be a positive in the long run.

Hoyer had his worst game with Cleveland, completing just 16 of 41 passes for 215 yards. He also threw an interception, lost a fumble, had four tosses batted down and finished with a career-worst passer rating of 46.3.

"Of all the games I've every played, that's the worst I've ever felt after one, and it's something you have to deal with learning on the job," he told the Akron Beacon Journal. "...For the first time in my career in the NFL, I played a bad game, and it sucks. I take a lot [of blame] on myself, and that's why I probably wasn't too pleasant to be around the past two days."

Hoyer, however, claims that the team could benefit from the 24-6 defeat to a Jaguars team that had been winless entering play. After all, the Browns are preparing to play the 0-6 Raiders in Cleveland on Sunday.

"Maybe it's good we lost last week," he said. "I don't think we underestimated anyone. But I think now we see that no matter who we're playing, we have to be at our best, and there's no excuses and we have to go out and execute."
