BEREA, Ohio — Browns coach Pat Shurmur will consider lineup changes, and it's possible starting wide receiver Greg Little's playing time could be affected.

Little dropped a third-down pass in Sunday's 24-14 loss to Buffalo. Little's drop — one of several for the second-year player the past two seasons — cost the Browns a first down and maybe a field goal.

Shurmur said Monday "we can't play a guy who's going to drop the football." Shurmur also addressed Little's on-field antics. He has posed like Olympic track star Usain Bolt after catches and celebrated a touchdown last week in Cincinnati with an end zone dance even though the Browns trailed.

Little also angered some Browns fans with a dismissive message on Twitter.

Shurmur said he has spoken to Little and stressed "he's being worked with."
