Bynes (knee) re-signed with the Lions on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Bynes rejoins the Lions after being released by the team back in September. He was initially placed on injured reserve due to a knee aliment, but his re-signing could mean he is nearing a return. Look for more information to be released this week, as the linebacker is expected to backup Thurston Armbrister.
Ebron (ankle/knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
Although he was spotted running on a side field Wednesday, the third-year tight end still hasn't practiced since injuring his knee in Week 4. The Detroit offense hasn't relied on his replacements at tight end, instead looking to WRs Anquan Boldin and Golden Tate to fill the void in the short passing game. Tight ends accounted for just one of the Lions' 51 targets the past two weeks, with Clay Harbor drawing the sole look. Considering pass-catching back Theo Riddick (ankle) will also be absent, Boldin and Tate could be busy again.
Riddick (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Washington, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
Absent from practice for a second straight week, Riddick never seemed to have much shot at making his return. Dwayne Washington (ankle) is listed as questionable after logging limited practices all week, suggesting he at least has some chance to join a Detroit backfield that was led by Zach Zenner and Justin Forsett in last week's win over the Titans.
Burley (hamstring) will not play Sunday against the Bengals, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Burley exited last week's game against the Titans with a strained hamstring and was unable to practice all week. Given this complete lack of participation, it's possible the injury may be more severe than initially let on. It's uncertain when he'll be able to return.
Coleman is progressing through his broken hand, but head coach Hue Jackson is unsure if the wide receiver will be cleared to practice this week, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
The Browns will continue to play the waiting game while Coleman completes the healing process. On the one hand, he has entered the 4-to-6 week window for a return, with Wednesday's practice marking five weeks since sustaining the injury. Until he makes an appearance in drills, though, he won't be a candidate to suit up and provide an explosive aspect to Cleveland's passing attack.
Haden (groin) is inactive for Sunday's matchup in Cincinnati.
After failing to take the practice field this week, it's no surprise to see Haden held out for the afternoon matchup. Look for Briean Boddy-Calhoun to draw the start at cornerback in Haden's stead, as was the case in Week 6's matchup against Tennessee. The lack of depth could mean a big day ahead for opposing wideout A.J. Green.
With Cody Kessler entering the concussion protocol, McCown (collarbone) could return as the starting quarterback for Week 8 against the Jets, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Kessler has seemingly played well enough to retain the starting job, but he was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Bengals, which forced the Browns to turn to Kevin Hogan -- the team's fifth quarterback this season. McCown still hasn't been cleared to play, but if he does gain clearance this upcoming week, he'll presumably be ahead of Hogan. It is possible Kessler will be ready, in which case he'd likely get the start.
Cooper (shoulder) is active for Sunday's matchup in Cincinnati.
Cooper logged a week of limited practices, putting him in line to play after sitting out the Week 6 matchup in Tennessee. His presence on the defensive line will help bolster a unit that is surrendering 118 yards per game on the ground this season -- good for sixth-worst in the NFL.
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.
