Even though the Cleveland Browns are heading into their Week 9 bye fresh off a rather disappointing loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in a game that saw this talented offense score only 6 points, Browns fans do have something new to get excited about as of Monday afternoon.

After missing Cleveland's past two games due to an emergency appendectomy, tight end Austin Hooper is making great progress on a day-to-day basis and is now expected to be back in the lineup for Week 10 when the Browns return to action against the Houston Texans.

Considering the severity of a surgical process like an appendectomy, it's a pretty optimistic sign to hear that head coach Kevin Stefanski has anything positive to say about a one-turnaround to begin with.

As for the remainder of the names mentioned, Browns' fans also have to be excited to hear positive news on both offensive lineman Wyatt Teller and Nick Chubb's progress as they battle back from a calf strain and a knee injury, respectively.

Especially following news of the recent loss of Odell Beckham Jr. for the remainder of the season due to a torn ACL, it feels as though this Week 9 bye couldn't have come at a better time for a banged-up Browns roster.
