Browns safety Tashaun Gipson missed his second straight day of practice with a concussion and may sit out Sunday’s game against Houston.

Gipson, who leads the NFL with six interceptions, was injured in last week’s win over Cincinnati. Browns coach Mike Pettine said Gipson was hurt when he was kneed in the head while forcing a fumble. Pettine said the team has not ruled Gipson out for this week, but he’s following the league’s procedures on head injuries.

If Gipson can’t play, Jim Leonhard and Jordan Poyer will get time at free safety.

Browns Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Cameron was back on the field after missing the past two games with a concussion. Cameron was hurt in the Oct. 26 win over Oakland.

Also, starting center Nick McDonald (calf) returned after being sidelined Tuesday. Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas was given a day to rest.
