    07/11/16RBLe'Veon BellKneePROBABLEBell could be given a four-game suspension by the NFL for missing a recent drug test, according to Dan Graziano of ESPN.

    The report clarifies that Bell did not fail a test, but simply did not show up for one recently, and the reason a suspension hasn't been announced is because he is appealing the punishment. Bell was suspended for the first three games of last season, which was then reduced to two, for a violation of the league's drug policy, and if he is forced to sit out again, DeAngelo Williams will likely start in his place.

    07/11/16TELadarius GreenAnklePROBABLEGreen (ankle) may not be ready for the start of training camp, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazzette reports.

    When asked if he would be available for the beginning of training camp come July 29, Green essentially responded, "I hope." Although no setbacks from his ankle surgery have been reported, in March Green had initially stated he was expecting to be ready. This decrease in optimism shouldn't spell concern for his Week 1 availability, but, nonetheless, Green could use all the practice time he's afforded in order to acclimate himself into the starting tight end role in Pittsburgh's offense previously manned by Heath Miller (retired).

    07/11/16DBMike MitchellShoulderPROBABLEMitchell (shoulder) is ahead of schedule in his recovery from shoulder and hand surgery, The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

    Mitchell hasn't missed a game either of the past two seasons, but underwent shoulder surgery this offseason to repair a torn labrum that seemed to plague him during the conclusion of the 2015 campaign. The veteran went under the knife in December, and initially planned on taking his rehab slow, so to not take any risks before training camp, but he quickly progressed ahead of schedule in his recovery, and fully participated in June's minicamp just over four months removed from surgery. Mitchell should be full-go for the commencement of training camp come July 28.

    03/14/16WRMartavis BryantSuspensionSUSPENDBryant 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.

    07/13/16DLDesmond BryantChestOUTBryant is likely done for the season with a torn pectoral muscle, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Bryant's timetable for return is set at 4-to-6 months. Bryant led the Browns with six sacks, along with 24 solo tackles and nine assisted tackles. While Bryant is out, rookie Carl Nassib may be next in line to start at left defensive end.

    07/11/16TEGary BarnidgeAbdomenPROBABLEBarnidge (abdomen) plans to be ready before training camp.

    Barnidge underwent surgery less than a week ago on a sports hernia but plans to come into training camp ready to go. The leader in receptions last season for the Browns said he specifically planned the timing surgery. "It was just an opportunity to get it all done and I won't miss any time. That was the purpose of it, so we would get all of this done and then I would be ready to go for training camp and it wouldn't pop in season", Barnidge said Wednesday before Browns' practice.

    07/11/16LBArmonty BryantSuspensionSUSPENDBryant (suspension) will participate in the Browns' offseason program despite being suspended for the first four games of the upcoming season, Cleveland.com reports.

    Bryant is not only suspended for the first quarter of this season for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances, but he was also indicted in February on felony drug charges. Despite those troubling off-field issues, Bryant will be with the Browns when their offseason program begins next month, even though his status with the team beyond then remains a bit more uncertain.

    04/30/15WRJosh GordonSuspensionSUSPENDThe Browns may still have interest in retaining Gordon if he is eventually reinstated from his league suspension, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Previously suspended by the NFL for two games in 2013, 10 games in 2014 and then the entire 2015 season, Gordon was denied reinstatement in April amidst reports of a failed drug test due to a diluted sample that also contained traces of marijuana. His repeated violations of the NFL's substance-abuse policy might make it a tough sell when he's eligible to apply for reinstatement again on Aug. 1, but Gordon does at least have a few factors working in his favor, namely that his latest failed drug test actually came up short of the league's required threshold for a marijuana sample. He's also passed dozens of drug tests since entering the league, and he hasn't had any reported legal issues since entering rehab in the aftermath of a July 2014 DWI. Although the Browns have made it clear they aren't banking on Gordon's presence for 2016, the franchise's new regime might be willing to give him a shot if the NFL signs off on it. Even if things eventually work out in his favor, Gordon could miss games at the beginning of the season, as NFL commissioner Roger Goodell often takes weeks (or even months) to decide such matters. In the meantime, Gordon still can't participate in team activities.
