Browns WR Higgins to miss time with sprained knee

CLEVELAND (AP) — Browns wide receiver Rashard Higgins could miss some games with a sprained knee.

Coach Hue Jackson said Monday that an MRI taken on Higgins revealed he sprained his medial collateral ligament while blocking during Sunday's overtime win against the Baltimore Ravens. Higgins, who is having a breakout season, had three catches for 66 yards and a 19-yard touchdown before getting hurt.

Jackson said surgery has been ruled out. He'll be evaluated "week to week." The team did not specify which knee Higgins injured.

Undrafted rookie Derrick Willies replaced him Sunday and made perhaps the game's biggest play, turning a short catch into a 39-yard gain to help set up the game-winning field goal.

The Browns are also working out veteran free agent Rishard Matthews. He was released last month by Tennessee.

Jackson said he and general manager John Dorsey have not spoken recently about former Dallas star Dez Bryant, who visited the team this summer.
