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.
Coleman (hand) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Cincinnati, the Akron Beacon Journal's Nate Ulrich reports.
This was a mere formality, considering Coleman still hasn't returned to practice since breaking his hand prior to Week 3. With Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) potentially also sidelined, the Browns may need to rely on rookies Ricardo Louis and Rashard Higgins, in addition to veteran slot man Andrew Hawkins. Once healthy, Coleman figures to join Pryor in the starting lineup.
McCown (collarbone) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Cincinnati, the Akron Beacon Journal's Nate Ulrich reports.
McCown was a limited practice participant for the second straight week, and he may need to log a full practice before he's cleared to play. Kevin Hogan will again serve as the backup to Cody Kessler, who had his most impressive game of the season last week, throwing for 336 yards and a pair of touchdowns as the Browns nearly erased a multi-score deficit. Barring a complete meltdown in the next week or two, Kessler seems likely to keep the starting job even when McCown is ready to play.
Pryor (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Pryor, who was on the field for 64 of the Browns' 67 snaps on offense in Week 6 against the Titans, en route to catching nine passes (on 13 targets) for 75 yards and two TDs, ending up not practicing Wednesday and Thursday, with the Akron Beacon Journal noting that he tried to run Friday. When asked afterward how he felt about Pryor's chances of playing Sunday, coach Hue Jackson essentially deemed the wideout a game-day call for the 1:00 ET contest, by noting "we'll see where we are on Sunday." If Pryor ends up limited or out this weekend, rookies Ricardo Louis, Rashard Higgins and Jordan Payton could be called upon to play a larger role in the Browns' passing offense along with veteran Andrew Hawkins.
Telfer (ankle) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
While it may be unlikely Telfer returns Week 7 against the Bengals after missing several weeks due to the ankle issue, he may be ready for game action as soon as Week 8 versus the Jets. He'll likely need to log at least one full practice before a potential return.
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.
Heyward is expected to miss 2-to-3 weeks due to the hamstring injury he suffered Sunday, NFL.com's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports.
Heyward's injury is not considered serious, but the results of Monday's MRI unfortunately suggested it could keep him sidelined until Pittsburgh's Week 8 bye. That would mean missing Week 7's top-heavy tussle against the Patriots. A Steelers team captain, Heyward boasts 17 tackles, three sacks and a fumble recovery so far this season.
While acknowledging that Roethlisberger -- who had surgery Monday to repair a torn meniscus -- could miss up to six weeks, Steelers president Art Rooney II noted Wednesday that the "best case" for the QB's return to action is two-to-three weeks, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. "I think that two-to-three is what you can characterize as best-case, but that's what we're hoping for," Rooney relayed to NFL Network on Wednesday. "Two-to-six is probably a fair range that somebody can put on it."
Roethlisberger has already been ruled out this week and the Steelers are on bye in Week 8, which takes care of the first two weeks of his recovery. Beyond that, we'll consider the veteran QB week-to-week, with Landry Jones slated to start in his place in the meantime
Wheaton (shoulder) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Wheaton didn't practice after missing last Sunday's game due to a shoulder injury, which will cost him his fourth contest of the year this weekend versus New England. His continued absence figures to benefit Eli Rogers and Sammie Coates, although the latter wideout's fractured thumb could impact his involvement to some degree.
Williams (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Williams' knee injury prevented him from practicing at all this week, so Le'Veon Bell should be prepared for an even heavier workload Sunday versus New England. In Williams' absence, Fitzgerald Toussaint embodies the Steelers' lone healthy running back behind Bell, who was already expected to see his usage increased in wake of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's (knee) injury.
Bryant was never under consideration of being cut by the Steelers despite his recently imposed year-long suspension, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Bryant's multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy triggered a minimum one-year suspension from the league, but the Steelers never considered releasing him, according to general manager Kevin Colbert. Instead, Pittsburgh will hope Bryant makes the necessary changes to his life to get reinstated next year, when he would have two years remaining on his contract with the team. With Bryant suspended, Steelers receivers Markus Wheaton and, more specifically, Sammie Coates, will be looked upon to take advantage of their increased opportunities this season.
