01/26/17DLDylan WynnAnkleQUESTIONABLEWynn (ankle) ended the 2016 season on injured reserve.

Wynn was waived/injured at the start of August after injuring his ankle during a practice in July. It isn't clear if his ankle remains an issue, though, and neither is his future with the Browns; as an exclusive rights free agent, the team has until March 9 to tender Wynn to a contract, or he becomes an unrestricted free agent.

01/25/17DLDesmond BryantChestQUESTIONABLEBryant (chest) has been placed on the injured reserve list and will sit out the entire season, Mary Kay Cabot of 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.

01/25/17WRRannell HallLegQUESTIONABLEHall re-signed with the Browns on Friday, Mary Kay Cabot of reports.

Hall missed all of this past season after fracturing his fibula in August, but he'll now rejoin the Browns with an eye on making the team ahead of the 2017 campaign.

01/25/17DBDerrick KindredAnkleQUESTIONABLEKindred has broken his ankle and will be placed on the NFI list as a result.

Kindred apparently suffered the ankle injury while training during the bye week, which will ultimately end the fourth-rounder's rookie season. Ibraheim Campbell will likely fill in as the Browns' starting strong safety during Kindred's absence.

01/25/17DLNile Lawrence-StampleShoulderQUESTIONABLELawrence-Stample (shoulder) was placed on the Browns' injured reserve list, reports.

The details surrounding the exact nature of his injury remain vague, but Lawrence-Stample had been nursing it since the beginning of August and missed the entirety of the Browns' preseason thus far. The undrafted rookie will likely get another tryout with the team next year.

01/25/17RBRajion NealKneeQUESTIONABLENeal (knee) cleared waivers and was placed on the Browns' IR list Sunday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Unfortunately for Neal, the 24-year-old's injury kept him from earning a shot as the team's No. 3 running back. Neal will spend 2016 rehabbing for next season.

01/25/17LBNate OrchardAnkleQUESTIONABLEOrchard (ankle) was placed on the Browns' injured reserve list on Saturday.

Orchard suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 3 and is now likely done for the season. Cam Johnson was promoted from the team's practice squad in order to replace him as a depth option at linebacker in advance of the Browns' Week 4 tilt against the Redskins.

01/25/17DBJordan PoyerAbdomenQUESTIONABLEPoyer (kidney) was placed on injured reserve on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

As expected, the safety was placed on the IR after being taken to the hospital due to vicious hit he received in Sunday's loss to the Titans. He was diagnosed with a lacerated kidney, which takes around four months to recover from, so the team decided to effectively end the 25-year-old's season. In his fifth season, Poyer recorded 39 tackles and two pass deflections in six games, one of the lone bright spots on an abyssal Cleveland squad. The Browns have limited secondary depth, and with Poyer now out, the team could be in market for a free agent to take over at free safety.

01/25/17RBGlenn WinstonShoulderQUESTIONABLEWinston (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Nate Ulrich of reports.

Winston hasn't practiced since Aug. 15 and missed the team's last two preseason games with a hurt shoulder. Instead of cutting him, the Browns decided to place him on IR with hopes he'll be able to contribute at some point in the future. The 27-year-old was far down on the depth chart before being injured, fighting with a handful of other players for the third running back spot.

01/10/17DBJoe HadenGroinQUESTIONABLEHaden's surgery to repair two groin muscles was successful, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Haden injured both his left and right groin muscles during the season, missing a combined three games with the injuries before playing through both issues for the final nine games of the season. He finished he season with 48 tackles and 11 passes defensed, including three interceptions, despite the injury, and he'll be expected to come back healthy for the 2017 campaign.

01/06/17WRJordan PaytonSuspensionSUSPENDPayton has been suspended for the final four games of the season for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances.

Payton will be eligible to return to the Browns' active roster following the team's final game of the season, which is on Jan. 1. The 2016 fifth-round rounder will thus look to carve out a role with the team in 2017 after a rookie season that resulted in him catching just one pass for three yards in four games.

01/02/17DBTrey CaldwellHamstringQUESTIONABLECaldwell (hamstring) was ruled out of Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Caldwell hurt his hamstring last Sunday against the Steelers and wasn't able to practice in any capacity this week.

01/02/17DLCam JohnsonGroinQUESTIONABLEJohnson (groin) is inactive Sunday against the Steelers.

Johnson did not make an appearance in practice this week, so not surprisingly, the fourth-year linebacker will take a seat for Sunday's season finale. Look for Joe Schobert to pick up extra snaps in his stead.

01/02/17WRTerrelle PryorFingerQUESTIONABLEThe Browns don't expect to use the franchise tag on Pryor (finger), Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The Browns want Pryor back, that's not in question. What matters is the price it would take to re-sign him. Should Cleveland slap Pryor with the franchise tag, they'd be on the hook to pay him north of $15 million in 2017. By comparison, Julio Jones and A.J. Green are scheduled to make $11.5 million and $10.3 million in base salary, respectively. The deadline to assign franchise tags is March 1. After that, Pryor and the Browns have until March 9 to reach a long-term deal or else the receiver will hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent. In other news, Pryor is progressing from the finger surgery he required in mid-January as the video he posted on Twitter today revealed he's now able to hold weight in his right hand. Barring any sort of setback, he should be full go for the start of offseason workouts in April regardless of whichever team he belongs to.

10/04/16WRJosh GordonSuspensionSUSPENDWith Gordon (suspension) having been released from an inpatient treatment facility, the wideout is a candidate to be dealt in advance of Tuesday's NFL trade deadline, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The report notes, however, that Gordon remains subject to the reinstatement process outlined by the NFL's substance abuse policy, so it remains unclear if/when he might be deemed eligible by the league to play again. In any case, it seems clear that the 25-year-old wideout is not part of the Browns' plans.
