Browns RB Willis McGahee Practicing Today, Will Play Sunday

Cleveland Browns running back Willis McGahee missed practice yesterday in an attempt to rest his knee, but is back on the practice field today and will be ready to go as the Browns go on the road to take on the Green Bay Packers.  The Browns are currently 3-3, which is an improvement from where they have been in recent years, but no one would ever guess that with the mindset of the fans.  Because of the ACL tear for quarterback Brian Hoyer against the Buffalo Bills, fans have taken aim at Brandon Weeden, especially in light of his back handed flip pass that resulted in a disastrous interception against the Detroit Lions.

As much frustration and anger that is directed at Weeden and the Browns lack of a quarterback, the running game has been just as bad.  The running game was mediocre before the trade of Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts earlier in the year and has been just as mediocre since the move.  The Browns are saying the right things and trying to do what they can to improve the running game, but it has been a struggle and the game has been forced into the hands of Weeden to try to make plays and gain yardage.  It does not get any easier this week as the Packers have the third best running defense in the league this year.  McGahee has been effective in spurts, but overall, the running game has been a struggle.
