Coleman (hand) remained limited at practice Thursday.
Coleman's return to the practice field is an encouraging development, but coach Hue Jackson indicated that it's unlikely Coleman will be cleared to play in advance of Sunday's game against the Jets. If the rookie wideout does sit out this weekend's action, he'd presumably target a return to the lineup in Week 9 against the Cowboys .
DeValve (knee) returned to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday.
DeValve has sat out the last four games after injuring his knee in practice, and now finds himself as the Browns' fourth-string tight end behind former practice squad signee Connor Hamlett. The rookie out of Princeton had only played 11 snaps before going down and doesn't figure to be involved going forward.
Coach Hue Jackson said Thursday that he expects Haden (groin) to be active for Sunday's game against the Jets, Ohio.com reports.
The Browns have consistently struggled to defend the pass, but Haden's return should shore up an iffy secondary, and with interception-prone Ryan Fitzpatrick coming to town, the 27-year-old cornerback could be a quality IDP play this week.
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.
Romo (back) was upgraded to a limited on Thursday's injury report, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
During the portion of practice open to the media Thursday, Romo was again throwing, only this time he was in shells with a jersey and helmet, according to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, forecasting his eventual participation. Reaching this milestone puts Romo one step closer to a return, but Todd Archer of ESPN.com noted the prevailing opinion regarding the QB, stating he'll "miss his seventh straight game" Sunday against the Eagles. The Cowboys will have an opportunity to rule out Romo on Friday's injury report, but murkiness could reign if he's given a questionable or doubtful designation in advance of the contest. Nonetheless, the most plausible scenario will see Dak Prescott under center yet again in Week 8.
Gregory (suspension) was suspended for an additional 10 games and won't be eligible to return until Monday, December 19.
Gregory is suspended for a grand total of 14 games due to multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy. It comes as disappointing news for the Cowboys, as substance abuse issues have clouded Gregory's once promising NFL career. Once he is eligible to return, he could compete for a starting defensive end position with the likes of Jack Crawford.
Smith has begun running and doing linebacker drills, but the nerve in his knee has yet to regenerate, The Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports.
The team still hasn't ruled Smith out for this season, but his ability to suit up in 2016 (or indeed, play in the NFL at all) will ultimately depend on whether or not the nerve re-fires following the gruesome knee injury that ended his career at Notre Dame. The second round pick is eligible to return to practice on Oct. 17 and the Cowboys would have until Nov. 28 to determine whether they want to add him to the 53-man roster or move him to injured reserve.
McClain (suspended) will be placed on the Cowboys' reserve/did not report list, ESPN.com reports.
McClain has already been suspended for the first 10 games of the upcoming season, but was still expected to report for training camp Wednesday. Since McClain, who skipped most of Dallas' offseason program, remains away from the team, his status appears increasingly shaky. Furthermore, after the Cowboys signed veteran Justin Durant recently, McClain's open roster spot could be filled by another linebacker, making McClain more expendable.
McFadden says he's ready to play after recovering from offseason elbow surgery, The Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports. "Elbow is feeling great," McFadden said. "Just sitting back and waiting for my time to get back on the field. It's pretty much up to the coaches. I'm ready to go, so it's just based off their decision."
He's eligible to come off the NFI list this week, but with the Cowboys on bye in Week 7 they will be in no rush to try and find room for McFadden on the 53-man roster. Ezekiel Elliott's tremendous start means that the veteran would be a depth player at best anyway in Dallas, but with backfield injuries starting to pile up around the league McFadden's best chance to see significant action this season might have to come via a trade.
