Browns RB Lee Suggs practiced yesterday but is still questionable for their game at Dallas tomorrow.
The former Virginia Tech standout missed the opener against Baltimore with a pinched nerve in his neck. He practiced three times this week but none involved high-contact drills, Coach Butch Davis said.
"He does more every day," Davis said. "It still remains a medical decision."
If Suggs can't play tomorrow, William Green will get the bulk of carries with James Jackson and Dee Brown as backups. Green rushed for 65 yards on 22 carries in the Browns' 20-3 win over the Ravens last week.
Suggs rushed for 186 yards and two touchdowns in Cleveland's season finale in 2003 and appeared to win the starting job over Green before getting hurt two days before the Browns' last exhibition game.
DT Gerard Warren, who injured a pectoral muscle against the Ravens, practiced yesterday. Earlier this week, Davis said he expected Warren to play tomorrow.
DE Ebenezer Ekuban is also questionable with a groin injury. Ekuban played five seasons for the Cowboys before signing as a free agent with Cleveland in March.
* HURTING: Jets DT Josh Evans is out for tomorrow's game against the Chargers with a back injury.
Evans hasn't practiced all week, and Coach Herman Edwards officially ruled Evans out yesterday. There is a possibility Evans will need season-ending back surgery.
Evans, a backup to Dewayne Robertson, was limited in the opener last week against Cincinnati, finishing with no tackles. . . .
Already missing injured starting RB Michael Bennett, the Vikings also will be without short-yardage specialist Moe Williams for Monday's game against the Eagles.
Williams started Minnesota's season opener Sunday, but left in the fourth quarter with sprained right ankle. . . .
Steelers ILB Kendrell Bell will probably not play against Baltimore after missing his third consecutive practice.
Bell injured a groin during practice last week and sat out Pittsburgh's 24-21 victory over Oakland on Sunday.
