Roundup: Rams WR Brandin Cooks exits vs. 'Hawks

Cleveland Browns receiver Jarvis Landry continues to deal with a concussion.

Coach Freddie Kitchens said Thursday that the wideout remains in concussion protocol.

Landry had a massive Week 4, generating 167 yards on eight catches in the 40-25 win over the Baltimore Ravens, before he was knocked out of the tilt in the second-half after a crushing hit.

Landry currently sits 10th in receiving yards in the NFL with 328 through four weeks.

With the Browns playing Monday night versus the San Francisco 49ers, there is still time for Landry to get through protocol, but he could be considered questionable for the prime-time tilt versus the undefeated Niners.

If Landry can't make it back for MNF, Antonio Callaway could jump right into the fray after serving a four-game suspension, especially if Rashad Higgins isn't full-go while dealing with an ankle injury.

Landry didn't practice on Friday, nor did cornerbacks Greedy Williams and Denzel Ward -- each with hamstring injuries -- and linebacker Willie Harvey (shoulder) and offensive tackle Kendall Lamm (knee).

Odell Beckham (hip) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, while Higgins was limited along with safety Morgan Burnett (quadricep), offensive tackle Christian Hubbard (foot) and safetySheldrick Redwine (hamstring).
