Browns need more out of Paul Kruger


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Browns outside linebacker Paul Kruger managed 4.5 sacks last season, nine fewer than he posted in 2012 for the Ravens. He ranked second on the Browns with 11 tackles for loss.

Cleveland coach Mike Pettine said getting more out of Kruger is a priority.

"(Kruger) had a special year in Baltimore when they won the Super Bowl," Pettine said, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "A lot of people think he took a step backward last year. We’re looking forward to getting with Paul and seeing what makes him tick and seeing if we can get him going."


Browns place eight probables on Friday injury report


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) The Browns list a whopping 16 players on their Friday injury report, but half are probable for the Week 17 battle in Pittsburgh, including All-Pro tackle Joe Thomas (back). The other offensive players among them are running back Willis McGahee (knee) and tackle Mitchell Schwartz (toe).

The four defensive probables are linebackers Paul Kruger (illness) and Tank Carder (shoulder), safety Jordan Poyer (toe) and safety T.J. Ward (shoulder, illness). Punter Spencer Lanning (knee) is also probable.


Browns defense healthy on Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) The Browns injury report for Week 15 against the Bears featured six players from the defensive side of the ball, all of whom were expected to take the field Sunday.  As expected, all six are active prior to kickoff: linebackers Tank Carder (shoulder), D'Qwell Jackson (ankle), Paul Kruger (elbow) and Craig Robertson (knee); defensive lineman Ahtyba Rubin (calf); and defensive back T.J. Ward (shoulder). 

Six Browns defenders probable for Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) Six Browns defenders have been given the probable tag for their Week 15 game against visiting Chicago.

They are linebackers Craig Robertson (knee), D'Qwell Jackson (ankle), Paul Kruger (elbow) and Tank Carder (shoulder), lineman Ahtyba Rubin (calif) and safety T.J. Ward (shoulder).


Disappointing Paul Kruger admits to feeling pressure


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) Browns outside linebacker Paul Kruger had admitted that the pressure of performing up to his free agent contract has played a role in his lack of production.

Kruger was signed after recording nine sacks with Baltimore in 2012, including 7 1/2 in the last eight games, and adding 4 1/2 more in the playoffs to help the Ravens win the Super Bowl. But he had just two for the Browns before doubling that total in their Week 14 game in New England.

"Not only do I put high standards up for myself, but you come in with a high bar and you want to live up to those," he told the team website. "People have been great to me here and for me, I feel a personal responsibility to be a good player and to produce. So, yeah, there's definitely been some pressure I've felt."

Kruger, who has contributed 36 total tackles, went five games without a sack before registering two against the Patriots.


Two Browns linebackers do their job against Patriots


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Browns linebackers D'Qwell Jackson and Paul Kruger can't be blamed for the galling blown victory Sunday at New England.

Jackson finished with a team-high nine tackles and added an interception 25 yards downfield in a first half dominated by Cleveland. Kruger, who had not registered a sack in the last five games, had two to go along with two TFLs and a pass defensed.


Paul Kruger green-lighted for clash at New England


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) A finger ailment will not keep Browns linebacker Paul Kruger from suiting up Sunday against the Patriots. He was listed as probable.

Browns linebacker duo among questionables for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Linebacker Craig Robertson was inactive the last two games with a knee injury, but he leads a short list of Browns listed as questionable for Sunday at New England and could make his return. The other questionables are fellow linebacker Tank Carder (shoulder) and tight end MarQueis Gray (hamstring).

Among the probables are linebacker Paul Kruger (finger), running back Willis McGahee (knee) and tackle Mitchell Schwartz (toe).


Ray Horton: Paul Kruger likely 'frustrated' by lack of sacks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2013) Browns outside linebacker Paul Kruger, who was signed in free agency during the offseason, has been disappointing. He has just 32 tackles and 2 1/2 sacks, none in the last five games.

Defensive coordinator Ray Horton acknowledged his struggles on Thursday, claiming that Kruger would admit to being "frustrated," per the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "He wants to do more," Horton added.

The season-ending loss of defensive end Desmond Bryant further diminishes a once-promising Cleveland pass rush that has managed just two sacks in the last three games combined.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

(11/29/2013) Three Browns have been designated as questionable for Sunday against Jacksonville, but none are starters. They are offensive lineman Martin Wallace (illness), tight end MarQueis Gray (hamstring) and defensive lineman Armonty Bryant (back).

The probables are wide receiver Josh Cooper (illness), cornerback Buster Skrine (ribs), tackle Mitchell Schwartz (toe), running back Willis McGahee (knee), punter Spencer Lanning (knee) and linebacker Paul Kruger (finger).

Three from Browns defense on injury report


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2013) One starter and one backup are among the most vulnerable Browns heading into their AFC North battle Sunday against Pittsburgh. Starting inside linebacker Craig Robertson (knee) is doubtful after missing every practice this week while lineman Armonty Bryant (back) is questionable.

The defender deemed probable is linebacker Paul Kruger (finger).


No injury concerns for Browns defense Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) The Browns defense is in pretty good shape for Week 11 against the Bengals, as linebacker Paul Kruger (finger) and defensive back Chris Owens (finger) are both active and in uniform for Sunday's game. 

Browns in good shape as they prepare for Bengals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2013) The Browns are healthy heading into their AFC North clash Sunday in Cincinnati. No starters are anything less than probable.

Included among the starters in that group are quarterback Jason Campbell (ribs), running backs Willis McGahee (knee) and Chris Ogbonnaya (ribs) and defensive end Paul Kruger (finger). Also probable is nickel corner Chris Owens (finger).

Little-used tight end MarQueis Gray (hamstring) is out while backup offensive lineman Jason Pinkston (ankle) is questionable.

Paul Kruger has Week 8 sack


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2013) Browns linebacker Paul Kruger had two tackles and a sack in Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Chiefs. It was his second straight game with at least half of a sack. 

The Browns face the Ravens in Week 9.


Lack of sacks by Paul Kruger not worrying Ray Horton


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2013) Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton said he's not concerned that starting right outside linebacker and free agent acquisition Paul Kruger has just one sack in six games.

"These things will come," Horton told the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Kruger, who signed a five-year contract reported to be worth $40 million in the offseason, has been blanked in that department since the season opener. He has just seven tackles and nine assists this season and bottomed out Sunday against Detroit with one total tackle.


Paul Kruger does his part in first game with Browns


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2013) Outside linebacker Paul Kruger provided an encouraging performance in his Browns debut on Sunday. He recorded his first sack and two tackles for losses in the 23-10 loss to Miami.

Kruger, who was signed as a free agent in the offseason, helped dominate the Dolphins' ground game, which was held to 20 yards in 23 carries.

The run defense will certainly be tested next Sunday against Ray Rice and the Ravens.

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
