Browns' WR Josh Cribbs expects to play

Cleveland Browns coach Eric Mangini said Friday that Pro Bowl kick returner and receiver Josh Cribbs is cleared for practice and expects to play against the New Orleans Saints.

The receiver's presence will be huge, because rookie quarterback Colt McCoy will make his second career start, in New Orleans. Cribbs can help McCoy both as a receiver and in the Wildcat.
