Browns WR Greg Little, promoted to the first-string offense leading up to Week Six, made his second start of the season Sunday at Oakland, and he made a solid case to continue being one of QB Colt McCoy's top targets going forward. McCoy threw Little's way 12 times, and the rookie from North Carolina caught six passes for 72 yards, both Browns game highs. On the season, Little has been targeted 33 times, catching 20-203-0.

Two other rookies, DE Jabaal Sheard and DT Phil Taylor, also continue to play key roles for an improved Browns defense. Sheard notched four tackles and a sack, with Taylor recording three tackles and a sack. Taylor has 23 tackles, while Sheard has notched 18 tackles. Each has started all five games and recorded a pair of sacks.

Other rookies making contributions included OLG Jason Pinkston, who started his fifth consecutive game; CB James Dockery, who notched two special-teams tackles and recovered an onside kick; and CB Buster Skrine, who played as a reserve.
