Jackson was a frequent and productive target of Jameis Winston in Thursday's joint practice with the Jags, of the team's official site reports.
The veteran had his day in the sun during Thursday's session, making plays up and down the practice field. Jackson hauled in a pair of deep passes from Winston during the session and was also targeted frequently during team and seven-on-seven drills. Although he hasn't necessarily drawn any headlines during camp so far, Jackson's veteran savvy and steady presence remains an integral component of the Bucs' wide receiver corps, and offense as a whole, heading into the 2016 campaign.
Sims (ankle) gained 20 yards on five carries in Saturday's preseason game against the Jaguars.
Fully recovered from a minor ankle injury, Sims got the start in place of Doug Martin (bruised ribs), who is also a bit banged up. The result was an unusual stat line, with Sims getting five carries and zero targets. No matter, the two running backs figure to reprise their roles from last season, with Martin getting most of the carries and Sims handling passing downs.
Coleman (hamstring) is slated to play in Friday's preseason matchup with the Buccaneers, Tony Grossi of ESPN.com reports.
Coleman has been dealing with a hamstring ailment all preseason but will see his first game action on Friday in Tampa Bay. It remains to be seen how many reps Coleman will get in the game, but with the starters likely to play upwards of three quarters, the rookie should see the field a decent amount as he battles for the No. 1 wideout spot.
Hawkins (hamstring) practices on Sunday, ESPN's Tony Grossi reports.
Hawkins did not play in either of the Browns' first two preseason games with a lingering hamstring strain. He's expected to make the Browns' final roster, but, now back in the fold, will fight for pecking order amongst the team's crowded wideout corps.
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.
Gordon (suspension) is expected to make his preseason debut Friday against the Buccaneers, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
As is first-round draft pick Corey Coleman, which will give fantasy observers a preview of what should emerge as the Browns' top wideout duo, upon the competition of Gordon's four-game suspension to start the season. While it's best not overreact to a player's efforts in a single preseason game, this will be the first chance to see Gordon in game action since December of 2014, thus adding a layer of intrigue to how he shows on Friday. As long as things continue to move forward in a positive direction for Gordon, he is a candidate to regain fantasy relevance as the 2016 campaign rolls along, though after his extended absence, and while working with a new QB (Robert Griffin), question marks do accompany his obvious upside/potential.
Bryant (suspension) pleaded guilty to misdemeanor drug charges on Wednesday and could have his four-game suspension prolonged, Scott Petra of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Bryant was indicted in February on felony drug charges and originally pleaded not guilty, but changed his stance on Wednesday, pleading guilty to misdemeanor charges. As a result, the outside linebacker will receive 68 days probation which will expire on Oct. 3, the same day he is schedule to return from his original four-game suspension. However, now that Bryant has changed his plea, his case will yet again be reviewed under the league's policies, which could potentially lead to a lengthier suspension. Bryant recorded 5.5 sacks in 14 games in 2015.
