Cleveland can never catch a break. First-round pick Corey Coleman broke his hand after a breakout performance against the Ravens. Then, Josh Gordon, who was set to return this week, announced he would check into a rehab facilitation and his career in Cleveland is likely over.
Through three games, wide receiver Terrelle Pryor has been the lone bright spot. He ran for a touchdown and caught eight passes for 144 yards in the overtime loss to Miami last Sunday.
The Redskins are defending NFC-East champions but got off to a slow start with back-to-back divisional losses at home.

The Browns have lost seven straight road games and 11 of their last 12, dating back to 2014.
