Coleman (hand) returned to practice Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
This is clearly a step in the right direction for Coleman, who ran routes Wednesday, but the report notes that he didn't catch passes. That's notable due to the fact that Coleman is bouncing back from a fractured hand. While it's unclear at this stage what his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Jets are, Coleman's return to practice, albeit in a limited fashion, is a significant milestone for the rookie wideout.
Burley (hamstring) will not play Sunday against the Bengals, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Burley exited last week's game against the Titans with a strained hamstring and was unable to practice all week. Given this complete lack of participation, it's possible the injury may be more severe than initially let on. It's uncertain when he'll be able to return.
Haden (groin) is inactive for Sunday's matchup in Cincinnati.
After failing to take the practice field this week, it's no surprise to see Haden held out for the afternoon matchup. Look for Briean Boddy-Calhoun to draw the start at cornerback in Haden's stead, as was the case in Week 6's matchup against Tennessee. The lack of depth could mean a big day ahead for opposing wideout A.J. Green.
McCown (collarbone) indicated that he is moving in the right direction with regard to being able to play Sunday against the Jets, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Per the report, the veteran QB is in track to do more at practice this week, but at this stage he's not a lock to be a go in Week 8, though his outlook on that front could be bolstered by a favorable showing at practice in the coming days. Meanwhile, Cody Kessler is still trying to bounce back from a concussion, which leaves Kevin Hogan as the team's healthiest option at the position.
Cooper (shoulder) is active for Sunday's matchup in Cincinnati.
Cooper logged a week of limited practices, putting him in line to play after sitting out the Week 6 matchup in Tennessee. His presence on the defensive line will help bolster a unit that is surrendering 118 yards per game on the ground this season -- good for sixth-worst in the NFL.
Gordon will likely be released by the Browns, NFL.com reports.
As hinted by head coach Hue Jackson, the team no longer has any plans for Gordon, who will enter an in-patient rehab facility instead of returning from his suspension in Week 5. It's unclear how long Gordon will stay in the facility and when/if he plans to play again this season, but he should eventually draw interest around the league, unless he failed a drug test -- in which case he'd likely be suspended yet again.
Caldwell suffered a hamstring injury during the onset of training camp, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
It's currently unclear whether the hamstring was merely tweaked or if Caldwell has suffered something worse. Either way, there has been no timeline provided for his return. When healthy, the Browns' fifth-round pick will compete for a role out of the slot.
Bryant (chest) has been placed on the injured reserve list and will sit out the entire season, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.
Entering his eighth NFL season and fourth with the Browns, Bryant was a lock to start at defensive end after a 2015 campaign which saw him record a career-high and team-leading six sacks. The torn pectoral muscle he suffered earlier this month was originally thought to keep him out 4-to-6 months, making November the soonest possible return date. Rather than push his recovery in the hopes of a return the team decided it best to shut him down for the season. Carl Nassib appears first in line to replace Bryant, but John Hughes and Dylan Wynn could see some extra snaps as well.
Bynes (knee) re-signed with the Lions on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Bynes rejoins the Lions after being released by the team back in September. He was initially placed on injured reserve due to a knee aliment, but his re-signing could mean he is nearing a return. Look for more information to be released this week, as the linebacker is expected to backup Thurston Armbrister.
Ebron (knee) returned to practice Thursday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
In his first practice session since Week 4, Ebron may have finally rid himself of the lower right leg injury that has plagued him for nearly three months. However, his activity level Wednesday will impart whether he's closing in on game action.
Riddick (ankle) participated in Wednesday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
After back-to-back practice-free weeks, Riddick's respite appears to have put him on track for a return, as it has for fellow practice participant Dwayne Washington (ankle). Nonetheless, the pair's progress through Week 8 preparations should be monitored with a watchful eye.
