Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry has an extra day to prepare for Cleveland's Week 5 Monday Night Football game against the San Francisco 49ers, and it looks like the added time off should allow the wideout to be slotted back into fantasy football lineups this week.

After exiting the Browns' Week 4 win over the Baltimore Ravens with a concussion, there were questions as to whether the WR would play in Week 5. But Landry cleared concussion protocol and should be at practice on Friday, lining the wide receiver up for a plus-matchup against the 49ers.

If and when Landry shows up at practice, his activity level should tell us more about the wideout's Week 5 status.

Despite suffering a concussion last week, Landry had his best performance of the season. He caught eight passes for a career-high 167 yards, his first 100-yard game of the season. The WR also has seen at least nine targets in the past two games, so he's trending in the right direction when it comes to fantasy.

Browns Injury Report Week 5

While the Browns injury report will surely be updated again, following practice today, Landry looks like a WR2/3 heading into Monday night's matchup against the 49ers.
