    08/31/16WRA.J. GreenQuadricepsQUESTIONABLEJones (knee) said he is not at all worried about the injury that caused him to leave Sunday's preseason game against the Jaguars, according to NBC's broadcast of the game.

    Green merely banged knees with a defensive back, and he actually stayed in the game for one more play. Though limping at first and clearly in some pain, Green never went back to the locker room for evaluation and was shown walking around on the sidelines. It was already reported that he would have stayed in the contest if it had been a regular-season game. Green finished the brief appearance with one catch for five yards on two targets.

    08/29/16RBCedric PeermanElbowOUTPeerman suffered a left forearm fracture in Sunday's preseason game against the Bengals, ESPN's Katherine Terrell reports.

    Valued in large part for his special teams contribution, Peerman may now be placed on injured reserve. In his absence, Bronson Hill worked as the No. 3 running back behind Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard.

    08/28/16DBAdam JonesCalfQUESTIONABLEWhen asked if he will be ready for Week 1's matchup with the Jets, Jones (calf) responded, "100 percent for New York. 100 percent."

    Jones strained his calf during warmups before Sunday's preseason loss to the Jaguars, sidelining him for the game. "When I back-pedaled I didn't feel a pull, I just felt pain. It loosened up as I was going," Jones explained Monday. "I was trying to go back out and Coach (Marvin) Lewis said, 'No way.' Yeah, if it was the regular season I would have played." Look for Jones to rest for the final preseason game against the Colts on Thursday in order to nurse his calf a little more before the season gets underway.

    08/25/16TETyler KroftKneeQUESTIONABLEKroft (knee) participated in some rehab exercises during Wednesday's practice, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

    Kroft originally pegged Week 1 as a target for his return, but given the nature of knee sprains, it wouldn't be surprising if he wasn't ready by then. As a rookie last season, Kroft helped fill the void during Tyler Eifert's absence. It remains to be seen what role, if any, Kroft will have in Cincinnati's offense once he's back to 100 percent on the gridiron.

    08/17/16WRMario AlfordAnkleQUESTIONABLEAlford (ankle) was released by the Bengals on Tuesday, Paul Dehner of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    A 2015 seventh-round selection, Alford spent the majority of his rookie year on the practice squad, and he was battling for one of the final roster spots prior to suffering an ankle injury at training camp. Released with an injury designation, he could land back on the Cincinnati practice squad or roster once he's healthy. With Brandon Tate also released Tuesday, everything points to undrafted rookie Alex Erickson making the final roster.

    08/03/16DBCorey TindalConcussionPROBABLETindal was hit over the head and robbed at gunpoint on Wednesday morning, Paul Dehner of the Enquirer reports.

    The only injuries Tindal suffered were those from when he was hit over the head with a bottle. He may have suffered a small concussion, but he's scheduled to report as planned to training camp on July 26.

    07/29/16LBVontaze BurfictSuspensionSUSPENDIn a media luncheon on Tuesday, head coach Marvin Lewis confirmed, "I am not going to play Vontaze Burfict in the preseason," Paul Dehner Jr. of Cincinnati.com reports.

    Burfict is suspended for the first three games of the regular season but is still eligible to play in the preseason by league rules. However, Lewis would rather play it safe and keep his star linebacker on the sidelines, keeping him safe from injuries and any on-the-field issue that could extend his suspension. Lewis said, "There's no reason for us to risk him getting hurt. It's hard because he's so competitive we have to continue to hold him back. One day he gets it the next day he wants to fight me on it. That's it. There's no reason to expose him to injury because he's too valuable." With Burfict out of the rotation, more reps will be allocated to young Bengals' linebackers.

    (Updated 08/11/2016)
    07/29/16LBRey MaualugaUndisclosedPROBABLEMaualuga (undisclosed) was cleared to practice Friday.

    Maualuga was placed on the active/non-football injury list earlier in the week due to an undisclosed issue, but he's already been cleared to return to the field. At this point there appears to be little concern regarding the starting middle linebacker's status moving forward.

    Cleveland Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/30/16WRRicardo LouisHamstringPROBABLELouis (hamstring) returned to practice on Monday, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

    Louis suffered a hamstring injury over two weeks ago but now returns to the field just a week before the regular season gets underway. The Eagles have not commented on if the wideout will play in Thursday's preseason finale or not, but look for updates to come as the week goes on. Louis is competing with a plethora of receivers, including Taylor Gabriel, Marlon Moore, and Andrew Hawkins, for a spot on the 53-man roster.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/26/16RBRaheem MostertHamstringQUESTIONABLEMostert (hamstring) is unlikely to play Friday against Tampa Bay, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    The speedster out of Purdue has been slowed by a hamstring injury of late and will not take the field for Friday's contest in all likelihood. His absence will be primarily felt on special teams Friday, but reserves such as Glenn Winston, Rajion Neal, and Jahwan Edwards could all see some carries in the second half as well with Mostert sitting.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/24/16DBTramon WilliamsToePROBABLEWilliams left Wednesday's practice early with a toe injury, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

    In his last nine seasons, the durable Williams has only missed two games. It's unusual to see a player of his toughness have to leave the playing field, but knowing his track record it would be a bit of a shock if he was to miss any regular season action. However, foot and toe injuries can often linger, so it is important to see how Williams feels throughout the remainder of the week.

    (Updated 08/24/2016)
    08/17/16DBK'Waun WilliamsSuspensionSUSPENDThe Bears claimed Williams of waivers after he was released by the Browns, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    With the Bears struggling with depth ar cornerback, they added a player who has been a starting nickel back, appearing in 26 games over the last two seasons. During that time, he recorded 60 tackles, two sacks, 10 passes defended and three forced fumbles. He's in the last year of his contract, and will be a restricted free agent after this season. For now, he'll provide depth, but it's conceivable that he can compete for a regular role with the defense.

    (Updated 08/30/2016)
    08/14/16DBJoe HadenAnklePROBABLEHaden (ankle) registered one tackle during his preseason debut Friday against the Buccaneers.

    The Browns welcomed a healthy Haden back to a defense that was in dire need of play-makers, but his return failed to make an impact, as the Buccaneers put up 30 points Friday -- 27 of which came in the first half. He appeared in just five games in 2015 but should continue to be one of the league's best defensive backs if his health doesn't betray him.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/10/16WRSeth DevalveHamstringPROBABLEDeValve has been placed on the active/PUP list.

    The rookie tight end will begin his first training camp on the sidelines as he nurses a hamstring injury. The timetable for the injury is still unknown.

    (Updated 07/26/2016)
    07/31/16DBTrey CaldwellHamstringQUESTIONABLECaldwell 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.

    (Updated 07/31/2016)
    07/29/16LBArmonty BryantSuspensionSUSPENDBryant (suspension) pleaded guilty to misdemeanor drug charges on Wednesday and could have his four-game suspension prolonged, Scott Petra of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Bryant was indicted in February on felony drug charges and originally pleaded not guilty, but changed his stance on Wednesday, pleading guilty to misdemeanor charges. As a result, the outside linebacker will receive 68 days probation which will expire on Oct. 3, the same day he is schedule to return from his original four-game suspension. However, now that Bryant has changed his plea, his case will yet again be reviewed under the league's policies, which could potentially lead to a lengthier suspension. Bryant recorded 5.5 sacks in 14 games in 2015.

    (Updated 07/27/2016)
    07/29/16WRJosh GordonSuspensionSUSPENDGordon (suspension) caught two passes for 87 yards and a touchdown (two targets) in Friday's preseason game against the Buccaneers.

    According to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal, Terrelle Pryor and Corey Coleman (hamstring) technically got the start, with Gordon then replacing the rookie for the second offensive snap. All three wideouts, along with Andrew Hawkins, ended up getting plenty of first-team work, but it was Gordon who clearly left the best impression. The 25-year-old snuck behind Brent Grimes on a double move to pick up 44 yards on the opening drive, then later outleapt Grimes for a 43-yard touchdown shortly before halftime. Gordon's lack of involvement in the time between might normally seem a bit concerning, but the Cleveland offense simply couldn't get anything going, with Robert Griffin ultimately taking five sacks on 19 dropbacks. Whatever issues the Browns offense might still need to work out, Gordon's first on-field appearance since 2014 left little doubt that his elite athleticism is in tact. He should emerge as Griffin's favorite target upon completion of his four-game suspension, though it is possible the Browns quarterback will develop chemistry with Coleman, Pryor and TE Gary Barnidge in the meantime.

    07/28/16DLDesmond BryantChestOUTBryant (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.
