    07/25/16WRJosh GordonSuspensionSUSPENDHead of football operations Sashi Brown relayed Monday that the Browns plan to give Gordon a chance to redeem himself with the franchise, now that the NFL has reinstated the wideout on a conditional basis, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    In a statement posted on the team's official site, Brown noted, "with the league's decision to afford Josh the opportunity to resume his career, he will be with us for the start of training camp. At that time, we will discuss directly with Josh the direction of our team, our expectations of our players and a plan to support him on and off the field." While the talented 25-year-old wideout has plenty to prove after being away from game action for so long, if he is able to meet the off-field expectations of the Browns, it looks like he'll have an opportunity, as soon as Week 5 of the 2016 season, to contribute to the team's offense in some capacity. How much of an impact he'd be ready to make -- and how quick that might happen after his four-game suspension ends -- remains to be seen, but Gordon's fantasy upside is obviously intriguing, in the event that things continue to move forward for him in a positive direction.

    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.

    07/11/16RBLe'Veon BellKneePROBABLEBell says he will win the appeal of the potential four-game suspension he faces for missing drug tests and thus won't miss any games as a result of the situation, ESPN.com reports.

    Bell's rejection of potential suspension talk came in the form of a comment from his verified Instagram account on a picture posted by someone else. At the moment, Bell is reportedly appealing the suspension, which is why it hasn't been announced, According to the league's collective bargaining agreement, a player can miss up to two drug tests without forfeiting games, but a four-game suspension is triggered upon a third missed test. Earlier this offseason, Bell denied missing or failing any tests, but despite what he says, his situation is still obviously one of huge importance for fantasy owners to monitor going forward.

    07/11/16TELadarius GreenAnklePROBABLEGreen, who is bouncing back from offseason ankle surgery, is looking forward to participating in training camp, the Steelers' official site reports.

    Thanks to the procedure, the tight end -- who agreed to a four-year, $20 million contract with the Steelers in March -- was unable to participate in the team's offseason program as anything but an observer, though the 26-year-old has been working on absorbing Pittsburgh's offensive playbook in the meantime. While it remains to be seen how much Green will able able to do on the field next week when training camp opens, there's nothing to suggest that his Week 1 status is in any danger. In the wake of the retirement of Heath Miller, Green is slated to serve as the Steelers' unquestioned No. 1 tight end, an assignment that should allow Antonio Gates' former understudy (in San Diego) to put up fantasy-worthy numbers in 2016.

    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.
