06/18/17WRCorey ColemanShoulderQUESTIONABLEColeman's (shoulder/hamstring) injuries and the time they've caused him to miss in practices and games have complicated his early development, ESPN's Pat McManamon reports.

Coleman was selected 15th overall last year, but he went on to play just 10 games as a rookie amid hamstring and hand injuries. In total, he caught 33 of 74 targets for 413 yards and three touchdowns. While Coleman rightfully aimed to improve on those numbers heading into this offseason, his hamstring troubles have resurfaced, and a shoulder injury ended his on-field participation in OTAs early. Although Coleman still took "mental reps" while sidelined and has come a long way since being drafted, according to the Browns' coaching staff, the team also realizes that he needs to be involved more in a live setting to fulfill his potential. In order to do so, he'll have to remain healthy. Should that occur, his position as Cleveland's No. 1 wideout only figures to help his development.

06/14/17DLMyles GarrettFootQUESTIONABLEGarrett's left foot appears to be in good condition ahead of the start of training camp later this month, NFL.com's Tyler Horka reports.

Garrett was forced into an early exit from Cleveland's mandatory minicamp last month after spraining his foot during drill work. Along with a premature excusal, Garrett was eventually seen sporting a walking boot to help heal the ailment. This week, however, a fan on Twitter asked Garrett how his foot was doing, and this year's top pick replied with a video of him leg-pressing a full rack of weights plus a friend sitting on top of it. Judging from that response, the rookie has seemingly put his injury behind him, which is a great development ahead of training camp.

05/13/17DBHoward WilsonKneeOUTWilson is no longer expected to need surgery on his fractured kneecap and is aiming for a return midseason, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

According to Rapoport, the injury wasn't as bad as originally expected and the Browns believe they'll be able to get Wilson back in 12-to-16 weeks. That puts an early return potentially in the first half of the season, which is good news for the Browns secondary depth. They recently added Jason McCourty as a free agent and he'll likely be the favorite to start opposite Joe Haden, so once healthy, Wilson figures to work as a depth option.

02/23/17DLDanny SheltonWristQUESTIONABLEShelton had minor surgery on his left wrist but doesn't expect it to delay his 2017 season, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Shelton's agent went on to say that, as of Feb. 22, the talented defensive tackle would be able to start working out as soon as next week. The Browns consider Shelton a key piece of their defense, as he has started 31-of-32 games in his first two seasons and recorded 59 tackles, including 1.5 sacks, in 2016. Look for him to be a full go by the time training camp commences.

01/25/17DLDesmond BryantChestQUESTIONABLEBryant (pectoral) has returned to OTAs but will be eased back into work, Patrick Maks of the Browns' official site reports.

Bryant missed the entire 2016 season while on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle and wasn't active during the start of OTAs. He's a key member of the Browns' defensive line, and his full return for the start of training camp would be an ideal circumstance for the defense.

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.

10/04/16WRJosh GordonSuspensionSUSPENDGordon (suspension) had his reinstatement petition denied Thursday by the NFL, Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports.

Gordon, who has not played in an NFL game since 2014 after multiple substance abuse violations, applied for reinstatement back in March, but he will now officially be unable to rejoin the Browns for any offseason workouts or training camp. His next opportunity to apply for reinstatement will be in the fall, and given reports from a little over a month ago that Cleveland would look into keeping Gordon should he be reinstated, it's likely that he tries once again when that time comes. Look for another update on Gordon's status to come about closer to the start of the regular season.
