Willis McGahee wants to play four more years


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2014) Free agent running back Willis McGahee finished last season "on fumes," but the 32-year-old insists he wants to play four more years, reports ESPNCleveland.com. McGahee averaged 2.7 yards per carry with the Browns in 2013 and isn't expected back in Cleveland.

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.


Willis McGahee fine for game against Jets


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) A concussion and knee issue won't prevent Browns running back Willis McGahee from suiting up in Week 16 against the Jets. He had been deemed probable.

Browns list two questionable, eight probable for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) Browns cornerback Joe Haden (hip) and wide receiver Davone Bess (personal) are the lone questionables on the injury report released by the team on Friday.

Willis McGahee returns to practice field


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) Rob Chudzinski said Wednesday that running back Willis McGahee (concussion) has been cleared to practice. He should play Sunday against the Jets, the Akron Beacon Journal has reported.

It remains to be seen if he is still the featured back. McGahee has struggled all year and the Browns unveiled a surprisingly productive Edwin Baker in Week 15.


Trio of injuries highlight Browns inactive list


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Among the seven players not in uniform for the Browns in Week 15 against the Bears Sunday, three had been ruled out prior to kickoff with injuries. Offensive lineman John Greco (knee), running back Willis McGahee (concussion, knee) and tight end Andre Smith (calf) were all ruled out after being unable to practice Friday.

The remainder of the inactive list is made up of four healthy scratches: quarterback Alex Tanney; tight end Keavon Milton; and offensive linemen Reid Fragel and Martin Wallace


Trio of Browns set to be sidelined Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) The red light is flashing for three Browns. Running back Willis McGahee (concussion), starting guard John Greco (knee) and backup tight end Andre Smith (calf) have all been ruled out for Sunday against Chicago.

Willis McGahee red-lighted for Week 15 clash


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) Browns featured back Willis McGahee (concussion) will not play Sunday against the Bears. He has been ruled out, which elevates Chris Ogbonnaya into the starting role.

Willis McGahee still sidelined Friday with concussion


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) Browns featured back Willis McGahee is approaching a red light for game action Sunday against Chicago. He missed his third straight practice Friday as he continued through concussion protocol.

His absence would likely thrust Chris Ogbonnaya into the starting role.


Willis McGahee not ready to return to action


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2013) Browns featured back Willis McGahee (concussion) was still in the protocol process on Wednesday and did not practice. His status for the game Sunday against Chicago has yet to be determined.

Willis McGahee has great matchup, if healthy


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/10/2013) Browns running back Willis McGahee has carried the ball 14 times in two straight games, and scored a touchdown in Week 13. But a concussion suffered at the end of Sunday's game against the Pats could knock him out for what could be his best matchup of the season.

The Browns face Chicago in Week 15, and the Bears have allowed a running back to reach the 95-rushing yard mark in eight straight games. Seven of the last eight have featured a 100-yard rusher. And backs have scored 11 touchdowns since that streak began. 

McGahee would probably snap that 95-yard game streak, but he'd likely be able to at least eclipse his season-best 72 rushing yards. The key here is his health; if McGahee plays, he may have some flex consideration in deeper formats. If he's out, consider Chris Ogbonnaya or Fozzy Whittaker instead.  


Willis McGahee's Week 15 status is TBD


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2013) Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said Monday the team will monitor the status of running back Willis McGahee leading up to Week 15 vs. Chicago. Chudzinski announced after Sunday's game the veteran running back sustained a concussion in the fourth quarter at New England.

Several Browns make minor contributions on Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Many bit players had a role in the dramatic loss for the Browns at New England on Sunday. Among them were running backs Fozzy Whittaker and Chris Ogbonnaya, both of whom caught three passes and rushed four times. The former managed 18 yards receiving and 6 yards rushing. The latter had 25 yards through the air and 8 on the ground.

The leading rusher was Willis McGahee, who ran for 33 yards on 14 carries. Adding receptions were Greg Little (2-14), Davone Bess (1-10) and MarQueis Gray (1-3).


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).


Willis McGahee productive in loss to Jaguars


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) The best game of the season for running back Willis McGahee was not enough to save his team from another defeat Sunday against Jacksonville.

The veteran averaged a season-best 4.1 YPC, rushing for 47 yards on 14 carries and scoring his first touchdown - and the first for the Browns on the ground - since Week 3. McGahee tallied a score for his team just four minutes into the game on a 1-yard plunge that ended its 19-game streak of failing to score a touchdown on its first possession. He also tied a season-high with two catches for 14 yards.

McGahee did much of his damage in the third quarter after managing just 16 yards on four carries in the first half. He will seek to keep his momentum going next Sunday in New England.


Browns questionables all non-starters


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).


Browns healthy on offense for game against Pittsburgh


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2013) The Browns are in good shape offensively as they prepare to host the visiting Steelers on Sunday. All but little-used tight end MarQueis Gray, who is out with a hamstring injury, are listed as probable.

The probables are running backs Fozzy Whittaker (ankle) and Willis McGahee (knee) and offensive linemen Jason Pinkston (ankle) and Mitchell Schwartz (toe). Punter Spencer Lanning (knee) has the same designation.


Willis McGahee does little as role shrinks


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Browns running back Willis McGahee was a total non-factor in Week 11 against the Bengals, as he touched the ball just eight times in a 41-20 loss.

McGahee ran the ball just six times for 13 yards, and barely saw action in the passing game as well. He was targeted just two times, bringing in both passes for 4 yards.

McGahee's role in the offense is shrinking behind Chris Ogbonnaya, and that doesn't come as much of a surprise. He is averaging just 2.6 yards per carry on 106 carries heading into Week 12 against the Steelers. 


Browns running backs able to take the field


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Browns running backs Chris Ogbonnaya (ribs) and Willis McGahee (knee) are active for Week 11 against the Bengals, despite their minor injuries that followed thrm through the week in practice. 

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.

Willis McGahee unlikely to do much in Week 11


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2013) Browns running back Willis McGahee is expected to have a smaller role in the offense in Week 11, based on coach Rob Chudzinski's comments before the bye week. Even if he wasn't, however, it would be hard for Fantasy owners to rely on him in Week 11 against the Bengals.

The Bengals allow the third-fewest Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs this season, and McGahee is well aware of how difficult this defense can be to succeed against. He had just 46 yards on 15 carries in Week 4.

The Browns are expected to give some of McGahee's workload to Chris Ogbonnaya beginning in Week 11, but Fantasy owners shouldn't be relying on him either way this week. 


Chris Ogbonnaya to take reps away from Willis McGahee


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/8/2013) It appears that struggling featured back Willis McGahee is about to have a diminished role in the Browns offense. Chris Ogbonnaya is in line for more carries, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.

McGahee is averaging just 2.6 YPC to 5.3 for Ogbonnaya, who has been used primarily as a blocker and third-down pass-catching option. But the Browns are on pace to rush for just 1,304 yards this season, which would be their third-fewest since their return to Cleveland in 1999. McGahee ran for just 31 yards on 21 carries Sunday against Baltimore.

Rob Chudzinski said Monday he planned to "refine" the ground game and indicated an increased role for Ogbonnaya. He will have plenty of time to tinker - the Browns are on a Week 10 bye.


Willis McGahee a non-factor in defeat of Ravens


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) There is joy in Cleveland after the Browns beat Baltimore for the first time since 2007 on Sunday, but running back Willis McGahee cannot be credited for his contribution.

McGahee put up his worst numbers in what has already been a mediocre season. He was held to a mere 31 yards on 21 carries for a 1.5 average in the 24-18 victory and was not used as a pass-catcher for the fifth time in the seven games he's played.

The veteran seemed to wear down with more work in the second half, during which he ran for just 12 yards in 12 attempts as his per-rush average slipped to 2.6 on the season. McGahee won't gain any yards next week - the Browns will be idle.
