  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Eligible for extension

    Newsome is entering his fourth year and is extension-eligible, Zac Jackson of The Athletic reports. He finished 2023 with 49 tackles, 14 passes defensed, two interceptions, one touchdown and 0.5 sacks over 14 games.

    Newsome made some big plays for the Browns in 2023, including a pick-six in a Week 10 win over the Ravens, but there were also a few disappointing games -- most notably, the 45-14 playoff loss to Houston. He allowed four catches on five targets and was unable to track down tight end Dalton Schultz on a 37-yard touchdown in that contest. Pro Football Focus rated him 18th of 20 defenders in the game. As the third member in what is considered the strongest part of the Browns' defense, Newsome should play a key role as a slot cornerback regardless of whether the team picks up his fifth-year option.

  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Cleared on injury report

    Newsome (knee) no longer has an injury designation for Saturday's game against the Texans, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Newsome went through the natural progression of DNP to limited and finally a full practice this week, paving the way for him to suit up for Saturday's wild-card matchup. The presence of the third-year pro in the Browns' secondary should be good news for Cleveland in the matchup against the Texans on Saturday.

  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Practices Wednesday

    Newsome (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday after missing Tuesday's session.

    It's a step in the right direction for the starting cornerback ahead of Saturday's wild card matchup with the Texans. The 2021 first-round pick posted career highs in 2023 with 49 tackles, 14 passes defensed and two interceptions.

  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Unavailable Thursday

    Newsome (knee) did not participate at the Browns' practice Thursday.

    Newsome has now missed the first two practice sessions of the week due to a knee issue. It's unclear when he sustained the injury, but if he can't go in Sunday's regular-season finale, Cameron Mitchell and Martin Emerson would likely see an increase in workload versus Cincinnati.

  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Won't play at Cincinnati

    Newsome (knee) is out for Sunday's game at Cincinnati, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    The exact nature of Newsome's knee injury is unknown at this point, but the Browns could just be playing things safe with a wild-card spot already guaranteed. Without Newsome, Cleveland will likely lean more heavily on rookie fifth-rounder Cameron Mitchell at corner in Week 18.

  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Snags key INT in win

    Newsome registered five solo tackles and an interception in Sunday's 31-27 win over the Jaguars.

    Newsome picked off Trevor Lawrence on the second play of the fourth quarter, which the Browns' offense took advantage of four plays later with a 41-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to David Bell. It was Newsome's second interception of the year and he's two tackles away from matching his career-high of 42 in 2022.

  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Ready for Sunday

    Newsome was a full participant in Friday's practice.

    Newsome had been dealing with a shin injury, but it seems as if the third-year corner has moved past that issue. Without Denzel Ward (shoulder) in Week 13, Newsome projects to be Cleveland's top cornerback against a Rams offense that's averaging just under 242 passing yards per game.

  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Records season-high seven tackles

    Newsome recorded seven tackles (five solo) in Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Broncos.

    He added one pass breakup. The seven tackles were a new season-best for the 2021 first-rounder. Newsome has battled elbow, hamstring and groin injuries this season but has appeared in nine of 11 contests, recording 32 tackles (21 solo), five pass breakups, one interception that he returned for a touchdown and 0.5 sacks.

  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Sheds injury designation

    Newsome (groin) was a full participant in practice Thursday.

    Newsome was able to play through the injury in Week 10, but he was limited in practice Wednesday. After being a full go Thursday, the 23-year-old should be all set to take the field Sunday against the Steelers.

  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Still working through injury

    Newsome (groin) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Newsome missed Week 9 against the Cardinals with the injury, but he returned for the team's Week 10 win over the Ravens despite logging limited practices throughout the week. The Browns are still being cautious with their 2021 first-round selection, and he's likely on the right side of questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Logs first career interception

    Newsome logged two tackles (one solo), including 0.5 sacks, and an interception in Cleveland's 33-31 win versus the Ravens on Sunday.

    Newsome came up big for the Browns in their win, intercepting Lamar Jackson for a touchdown in the fourth quarter to cut the lead down to just one point. This was the first interception of the 2021 first-round pick's career, and he'll look to build off this strong performance against the Steelers next week.
