Browns TE Jordan Cameron out for Jets game

The Jets will have their hands full with Browns WR Josh Gordon, but it sounds as if they won’t have to deal with Jordan Cameron, who has been ruled out for this weekend’s game in New York. Per Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal on Twitter.

Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.com

Cameron missed practice all week of practice after a concussion last week. Gary Barnidge and MarQueis Gray will likely play in Cameron’s place, but their presence will make life that much easier for the Jets secondary which has struggled of late. No Jordan Cameron means the Jets defense can focus on stopping Josh Gordon.

The angle on this game that intrigues me comes from Cleveland.  They got two first round picks after the Trent Richardson trade.  They're done playing at home.  They're eliminated.  Every indication is that they want to draft their next franchise QB in next year's draft.  Whoever the get for Richardson will help validate that trade.  Every win is probably 3 spots in the draft which is key if you're looking for a franchise QB, particularly this year where there are some big names coming out.  Why wouldn't they play second stringers and the like against another eliminated team?  I could see if this game had playoff implications it could be a different story.  Just seems to me crazy to go all out to win on the road in this circumstance.  (I am sure some of you will say the same logic applies to the Jets but I disagree particularly because they are at home; next week, if Miami clinches this week, I start Simms.)

This game has all the makings of a real snoozer.......I picture something like the Arizona game last season. Bent is probably going to get his low scoring defensive struggle though the ineptness of the respective offenses might be the most likely cause!

Even a backup TE can catch wide open passes. Milliner on Gordon?

Unless the entire Cleveland defense somehow misses the game, I think we can assume this will be a loss.  No way the Jets put up more than 14 points.  I'm not saying Cleveland is any good either.

@jaygo I dont understand your reasoning for starting Simms.

@a57se How many catches, yards and Td's for Gordon this week?

@levi @jaygo If next week is meaningless from a playoff standpoint, I sit most of my key first string guys including Geno.  Miami likely to do the same in that circumstance.

@t__k @a57se Yeah, I was gonna say, Gordon will probably account for 3 TDs on his own.

@Brendan@Ceifus HornswoggleThe Browns defense is no. 23 per FO; the Jets is 12 and no. 1 against the run.  The Browns have no running game.  Their passing game took a hit with Cameron out and their defense might not have Haden.  The Browns offense is at no. 26 and the Jets are at 31.  Given the Jets are 5-2 at home and the Browns have a 1-5 road record, the Jets may have a decent chance on Sunday...no reason to "assume a loss."

@jaygo Ok, but I think evaluating Geno and letting him gain experience is more important. But I do understand your reasoning now.
