The Cleveland Browns' playoff hopes heading into Week 16 are sitting at slim to none. It's clear that quarterback Deshaun Watson is still shaking off some rust after missing nearly two full seasons, and he doesn't seem to be playing well enough right now to lead the Browns to the postseason.

Cleveland Browns Injury News

Cleveland did get some good news on Tuesday, though, which is that Ethan Pocic is returning from IR. Pocic was last on the field in Week 11 before going down with a knee injury.

Pocic was great for the Browns prior to his injury. He had only allowed one sack all season in over 600 offensive snaps played and had committed zero penalties. He has also earned a PFF grade of 82.8 overall so far this season.

Getting Pocic back in the fold should help Watson as well as running backs Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. He'll look to make his return in Week 16 against the New Orleans Saints, where Cleveland is currently listed as a 3-point home favorite on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
