Browns wide receiver Amari Cooper, who had a season-best 131 receiving yards in Cleveland's 32-13 Week 8 win against the Cincinnati Bengals, did not practice Wednesday and was a limited participant Thursday because of a hip injury.

Cooper, who also threw an interception on a failed trick play in that game, was among several Cleveland starters who were limited participants Thursday, along with receiver David Bell (thumb), tight end David Njoku (knee) and cornerback Denzel Ward (ankle/illness).

Earlier this week, Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski told reporters that linebacker Sione Takitaki, who had 13 tackles and forced a Joe Burrow fumble in Cleveland on Oct. 31, will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL.

Two players were added to the Cincinnati Bengals' injury report Thursday as limited participants: receiver Tee Higgins (hamstring) and defensive end Sam Hubbard (calf). Higgins, Hubbard and defensive back Cam Taylor-Britt were limited participants Friday.

Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said Friday that Higgins and Hubbard are expected to play Sunday.

Bengals running back Joe Mixon is expected to return Sunday after clearing concussion protocol. Tight end Hayden Hurst will miss the game with a calf injury.
