Grant Balfour felt really good after throwing on Wednesday. Balfour reported a dead arm after his last outing.
While the jury is still out, this is a step in the right direction for Balfour who is slated to be the Rays closer this season. I would need to see some successful game action from Balfour before I would consider risking a pick on him this year. ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Nate Orchard (groin) is questionable for Monday's game against the Ravens.
Orchard has developed into a run-stuffing linebacker in the NFL, and will be missed if he cannot take the field in Week 12 against the Ravens, who will be looking to establish the run with Joe Flacco out of action. He has not built upon his sack abilities that he showcased in college at Utah, but the Browns are happy that he has developed into a run-stopper as their defense has been porous against running backs the past couple of seasons.
