  • Browns' James Hudson: Practices Thursday

    Hudson (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Hudson missed Cleveland's Week 3 win over Tennessee. The third-year pro with four career starts played a depth role over the first two games.

  • Browns' James Hudson: Won't face Titans

    Hudson (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.

    Hudson entered Sunday with a questionable tag, though after failing to practice Friday, his status was in doubt. He has served as depth along Cleveland's offensive line through two games this season.

  • Browns' James Hudson: Activated by Browns

    The Browns activated Hudson (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

    Hudson was unavailable for Monday's game against the Raiders after he tested positive for COVID-19, but he'll be able to return to the field Saturday against Green Bay. The 22-year-old should reclaim his role as the starting right tackle.

  • Browns' James Hudson: Not cleared for Week 15

    Hudson (illness) wasn't reinstated from the reserve/COVID-19 list and won't be available for Monday's game against the Raiders, Scott Patsko of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Even with the NFL pushing back Cleveland's Week 15 game an extra two days in addition to relaxing the return-to-play protocols for vaccinated individuals who test positive for COVID-19, Hudson and several other key Browns players weren't able to clear the necessary protocols prior to Monday's 5 p.m. ET kickoff. Along with Hudson, fellow starting tackle Jedrick Wills (illness) wasn't activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list, so Cleveland will likely turn to Alex Taylor and Blake Hance to protect fill-in starting quarterback Nick Mullens.

  • Browns' James Hudson: Placed on COVID-19 list

    Hudson was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday.

    Hudson tested positive for the virus Saturday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. If this is the case, the Browns will be without the rookie offensive tackle for Monday's game against the Raiders unless he is able to receive two negative tests twice within 24 hours. This would be another large loss for Cleveland's offensive line as starting right tackle Jack Conklin is out while on injured reserve. The Browns will likely turn to veteran Blake Hance, who has started games at multiple positions this season as the team has dealt with injuries along the offensive line.

  • Browns' James Hudson: Likely fill-in for Conklin

    Hudson could be the starting right tackle in place of the injured Jack Conklin (knee) for Week 14 against the Ravens, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Hudson, a 2021 fourth-round draft pick who converted from defensive end to offensive tackle during his final year at Cincinnati, has been used sparingly this season. He made one start in place of Conklin earlier this season and appeared in eight games, but the rookie has not played in the last three contests and was inactive in Cleveland's previous game before the bye. Blake Hance, a natural guard, had been used as the sixth lineman, filling in where needed, but head coach Kevin Stefanski did not commit to him playing right tackle this coming Sunday. With a banged up tight-end room, Hance may be used as a third tight end, something Austin Hooper alluded to when he said, "We all got to do what we've got to do. Blake [Hance], we've got an extra lineman to come in and give us good jumbo looks and do things like that when we want to get into those types of deals." The Browns hope Hudson will not hinder the team's running game, as Cleveland will deploy a healthy tandem of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, the latter who is good to go following a calf injury suffered in Week 12.
