Is he absolutely going to play against the Browns?
“Well, I’m going to play. I don’t where the ‘absolutely’ part comes into play,” said Babin. “But I practiced today, felt fine, it was crisp, didn’t look as if I had missed much time.”
Babin has been sidelined since late July with a calf strain but doesn’t seem concerned about needing time to catch up.
“I live my life every day as a professional,” said Babin. “I wake up before the sun, I eat right, I sleep right, I treat my body right. I’ve had the opportunity to be in this defense for two years now. Was I a little rusty today? You could split hairs. Maybe I was, maybe I wasn’t. But I felt good, it was crisp, and it was a good place to start.”
Elsewhere on the injury front:
* Dion Lewis, who was held out of Thursday’s game against the Jets with a lingering hamstring injury, says he’ll be fine for Sunday.
* Colt Anderson told reporters that he practiced Monday and is keeping the possibility alive that he’ll play in Cleveland.
