Friday update: Peoples-Jones returned to practice on Friday, per Mary Kay Cabot. This should make him questionable in Week 11.
Thursday update: DPJ is not practicing on Thursday after suffering an injury on Wednesday, per Nate Ulrich.
The Cleveland Browns have been dealing with a lot of injuries across the board, and it appears they’re still coming for a team desperately needing a win after a tough Week 10 showing against the New England Patriots. Wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones appeared to suffer an injury in practice Wednesday and sat out the rest of the session.

Fantasy football implications
Given Cleveland’s focus on running the football, Peoples-Jones’ injury isn’t a major blow for a large portion of fantasy managers. However, Peoples-Jones does have the home run ability and that can mean high upside for managers. With Odell Beckham Jr. gone, Peoples-Jones was going to see an uptick in opportunities and the Lions present a favorable matchup in Week 11. The receiver still has two days to show this isn’t a serious injury, although the Browns might proceed with caution given the injury situation with the roster overall. It’ll be important to monitor this situation in the coming days.
