Notes: WR Mohamed Massaquoi misses practice with knee injury


BEREA – Receiver Mohamed Massaquoi (knee) didn’t practice today after being limited Wednesday.

Massaquoi missed five games earlier in the season with a hamstring injury. He’s played the last six games, mostly as the No. 3 receiver, and has eight catches.

Tight end Jordan Cameron (head) and defensive end Frostee Rucker (shoulder/hip) also weren’t at practice for the second straight day.

Coach Pat Shurmur said Cameron didn’t feel well Wednesday and is being treated as if he has a concussion. He played all game Sunday in the loss to the Redskins and didn’t report any issues until Wednesday.

Rookie Brad Smelley, who was activated from the practice squad last week, could see action Sunday in Denver if Cameron can’t play. Benjamin Watson is the starting tight end, and Alex Smith plays tight end and fullback.

Rucker said Wednesday he expects to play Sunday.

Receiver Jordan Norwood practiced for the second straight day. He has missed nine games after hurting his foot against the Giants, when he caught a career-high nine passes. He’s on the injured reserve/designated for return list.
