News: Coach Mike Pettine indicated that Tate (knee) will be limited at practice on Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Impact: The report suggests that the team hopes that Tate is able to progress to full practice participation later this week and in such a scenario, Tate would then be on track to return to the Browns' starting lineup Sunday against the Titans, which would set the stage for Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell to work in complementary roles this weekend.
News: Tate (knee) returned to practice Tuesday, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Impact: Tate has missed the Browns' past two games due to a sprained knee suffered in Week 1. However, coming off Cleveland's bye week, Tate returned to the practice field Tuesday, which bodes well for his chances of playing against the Titans this Sunday. If that proves to happen, Tate is expected to reclaim his starting running back position, which would result in rookies Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell being relegated to more complementary roles. While Tate's fantasy owners should feel encouraged about his progress, his status should still be monitored leading up to Sunday's game in Tennessee to ensure he's indeed available to play.
