Barnidge (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.
Bryant (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.
The NFL has denied Gordon's request for reinstatement from his one-year suspension for repeated violations of the league's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Gordon's next opportunity to apply for reinstatement will arrive on Aug. 1, according Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
On Monday, it was widely reported that Gordon had failed a drug test in March. Both the A and B samples were revealed to have "traces of marijuana and dilute," and despite the former falling short of the threshold required for a positive test, his presence in Stage 3 of the drug program sealed his fate. Once Aug. 1 rolls around, Gordon will have the chance to reapply, though commissioner Roger Goodell is notorious for taking longer than the 60-day mandate for a response recommended under the current CBA. As a result, Gordon is in danger of missing his second season in a row.
Moncrief (toe) has started running routes, according to his Twitter account.
Moncrief aggravated a toe injury late last season and ended up having surgery on it earlier this offseason. He's missed Indy's offseason practices, but is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.
Anderson is aiming to complete his rehab from a torn ACL by Week 1 of the upcoming season, Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site reports. "We haven't gotten into specific 'return to play' dates yet but everything is ahead of schedule so far," he said earlier this week. "My knee feels awesome."
The Colts lost both Andrew Luck and Anderson for the season during a Week 9 win versus the Broncos, but the defensive end's injury was lost in the wake of the franchise quarterback's ordeal. In any case, Anderson has embarked on his second ACL recovery -- the other occurred in high school -- as he attempts to show that his impressive rookie campaign wasn't a fluke. In parts of nine games before the injury, he notched one sack among 31 tackles (19 solo).
McNary (groin) has been placed on season-ending injured reserve, Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star reports.
A reserve inside linebacker, McNary hasn't seen much of the field since Jerrell Freeman returned from an injury in Week 15. McNary finishes his season with 14 tackles in 13 appearances, after registering 28 takedowns in 15 games last season. His contract runs through 2016, but there's a good chance he'll have to compete for a roster spot next year.
