The Browns got good news concerning the status of Joe Jurevicius' rib injury, and it doesn't look as though the veteran wide receiver will miss substantial time, although he likely will miss this week against the Bengals.

This is great news for the Browns' struggling offense. Young QB Charlie Frye needs to get live game experience with all of his weapons intact to help build a rhythm in the passing game. Jurevicius had the skill-set to become a very valuable third-down receiver and a weapon in the red zone.

In the meantime, expect former high first-round picks TE Kellen Winslow and WR Braylon Edwards to step up their game in Jurevicius' absence. If all three of these weapons can perform as they are capable, the Browns' running game will also improve dramatically.
