Head coach Hue Jackson said Thursday that the team is hopeful that Coleman (hamstring) will be able to play in next week's preseason game against the Buccaneers, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
The first-rounder out of Baylor has yet to get into a preseason game due to a nagging hamstring injury, but it looks as though Coleman could be making his debut in the third week of the preseason. It's unclear how many snaps he'll get if he's able to play against the Bucs, but as a projected starter he could be in line to see several series.
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.
Though a number of teams have reportedly inquired about trading for Gordon (suspension), the Browns aren't interested in dealing the wideout, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Gordon, who the report points out has been suspended for 27 of his last 32 games, has looked good in practice of late and on is track to make his preseason debut Friday against the Bucs. Meanwhile, the 25-year-old has been getting first-team reps in practice and it's not hard to imagine Gordon stepping into a regular season starting role as soon as Week 5, when he is eligible to return from his four-game suspension.
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.
Neal (torso) will practice "in some fashion" Sunday according to head coach Dan Quinn.
The rookie safety out of Florida suffered a slight strain in his torso during practice earlier this week, and the Falcons are taking their time bringing him back. Neal was the 17th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft and will be the favorite to start at strong safety for the Falcons this season given that his torso injury is nothing serious.
Toilolo (hand) caught one pass for 13 yards on two targets in Thursday's preseason game against the Browns.
Jacob Tamme got the start, but Toilolo and Austin Hooper also got some snaps with the first-team offense. Each player managed just one catch, and while Tamme appears to have an early advantage, there's still time for Toilolo or Hooper to make a move before Week 1. Regardless, the Atlanta tight ends probably won't be a big part of the team's passing game this season.
Ward (ankle) came out late, but managed to participate in some of Tuesday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.
Ward has missed just over a week since injuring his ankle, but he appears to be nearing a return. His limited participation is a good sign, and he did say that it was getting better day-by-day. When he returns, he'll look to continue to push Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman for reps and carries in both the preseason and regular season.
Collins has been suspended for the first four games of the upcoming season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Collins is still eligible to partake in all offseason and preseason activities, but will have to miss the first quarter of the regular season. A second round selection last year, Collins was hoping to carve out a larger role in the Falcons' secondary this term, and although he very well may still, his absence will open opportunities for his teammates to begin the campaign.
