The Cleveland Browns are looking to go 2-0 on their current road trip against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 4. Fortunately, their receiving corps should now be at full strength with the return of Antonio Callaway.
Callaway missed the first four games of the 2019 NFL season while serving a suspension for violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy. According to Jeff Risdon of the Browns Wire, head coach Freddie Kitchens is excited to have him back in the mix:
“I am looking forward to getting him back,” Kitchens said of Callaway, who was sidelined for much of training camp and the preseason with an ankle injury.
Kitchens added that he trusts Callaway has been doing what he can to stay in shape.
“I am assuming that he has been doing his part in getting in shape and getting ready to go. I expect nothing else out of Antonio.”
Callaway managed to generate some hype with his play during the offseason. Kitchens is now hoping he can pick up where he left off against San Francisco.
It is no secret that the Browns' offense has largely underwhelmed thus far. Although they enjoyed a field day against the Baltimore Ravens, their success was largely predicated on the run game. Fans are still waiting for Kitchens and quarterback Baker Mayfield to make the most out of this star-studded group.
Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has endured a slow start to the season. Meanwhile, wide receiver Jarvis Landry has proven capable of stepping up as Mayfield's most trusted option when he needs to.
It will be interesting to see if Callaway can step up as a viable No. 3 option in the passing game this week.
