Knee - IR. Out for season
Travis Benjamin
News
The Browns were a mess Sunday against Houston, but several players did make small contributuons to their offensive effort.

Among them was tight end Jim Dray, who filled in admirably for usual starter Jordan Cameron with two catches for 46 yards. Not so proficient was wideout Miles Austin, who dropped two critical passes, one of which he bobbled into an interception down the stretch. Miles finished with three catches for 31 yards.

Running back Terrance West added 12 yards on five carries while wideout Travis Benjamin and tight end Gary Barnidge pitched in with one catch each.

Paul McQuistan
News
Browns coach Mike Pettine said Thursday offensive lineman John Greco will likely start at center and offensive lineman Paul McQuistan will start at right guard Week 7 at Jacksonville. The starting lineup along the offensive line is undergoing changes in the wake of center Alex Mack's leg injury.

The healthy scratches are wideout Rodney Smith, cornerback Pierre Desir, running back Glenn Winston, offsensive lineman Vinston Painter and linebacker Keith Pough.

Paul Kruger
News
Browns outside linebacker Paul Kruger, who was a disappointment in 2013 with just 4 1/2 sacks, exceeded that number for the season Sunday with three sacks against Oakland to give him five on the year.

Kruger added two more tackles and a pass defensed.

Nick McDonald
News
Five key Browns players designated as probable for their Week 11 game against visiting Houston have received the thumbs-up for action. They are defensive linemen Billy Winn (toe) and Desmond Bryant (wrist), wideout Andrew Hawkins (thigh/knee), center Nick McDonald (calf) and linebacker Barkevious Mingo (shoulder).
L'Damian Washington
News
The 49ers made a slew of moves Saturday to pare their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

Among those moves was the placement of cornerback Kenneth Acker and fullback Will Tukuafu on the injured reserve list.

San Francisco cut the following players: T Carter Bykowski, TE Asante Cleveland, WR Lance Lewis, LS Kevin McDermott, CB Darryl Morris, G Al Netter, DL Lawrence Okoye, WR Kassim Osgood, T Michael Philipp, NT Mike Purcell, G Ryan Seymour, LB Shayne Skov, RB Alfonso Smith, G Adam Snyder, S C.J. Spillman, LB Chase Thomas, S Raymond Ventrone, WR L'Damian Washington and RB Glenn Winston.
Spencer Lanning
News
Tight end Jordan Cameron (shoulder) is not the only Browns player listed as questionable for the Sunday game against Baltimore. Second-year linebacker Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) has received the same designation.

All the other Browns on their Friday injury report aside from shelved running back Ben Tate (knee) are probable. They are wide receiver Travis Benjamin (knee), defensive ends Desmond Bryant (wrist) and John Hughes (hamstring), punter Spencer Lanning (shoulder), offensive lineman Paul McQuistan (ankle) and cornerback Buster Skrine (thumb).

Robert Nelson
News
The Browns have made Jordan Cameron, Andrew Hawkins, Johnson Bademosi, Pierre Desir, Glenn Winston, Robert Nelson and Vinston Painter inactive Week 10 against the Bengals.

Hawkins is the biggest surprise on the list. He was questionable coming into the game due to a foot injury, and was a late scratch. Both Bademosi and Cameron had already been ruled out prior to Thursday. The other four players are healthy scratches. 

John Greco
News
Browns coach Mike Pettine said Thursday offensive lineman John Greco will likely start at center and offensive lineman Paul McQuistan will start at right guard Week 7 at Jacksonville. The starting lineup along the offensive line is undergoing changes in the wake of center Alex Mack's leg injury. 
Calvin Barnett
News
Justin Gilbert
News
Browns rookie cornerback and top draft pick Justin Gilbert is hoping to get a chance to show what he can do down the stretch with his team in the thick of the playoff race.

"Within this six-game stretch, I think I can make an incredible amount of plays on the defensive end," he told the Akron Beacon Journal.

Not if he doesn't play. Gilbert was in on zero reps in the Week 11 loss to Houston. He has been a disappointment all season as undrafted free agent K'Waun Williams has wrested playing time away from him.

Chris Kirksey
News
Browns rookie linebacker Chris Kirksey managed a breakthrough game Sunday at Jacksonville despite the team's lopsided loss.

Kirksey led the team with a career-best seven solo tackles and registered one of their two sacks. It was his first sack since the season opener.

Donte Whitner
News
Browns safety Donte Whitner termed Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill "ignorant" and a "sore loser" after the latter downplayed Cleveland following its lopsided defeat of Cincinnati on Thursday night.

Whitner was speaking to the media Friday when he responded to the comments. Hill had claimed that the Browns were worse than he expected coming into the game, adding that the loss was only the result of his team's poor performance.

Johnson Bademosi
News
The Browns ruled Jordan Cameron (concussion) and Marlon Moore (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Karlos Dansby (knee) was the only player deemed doubtful, while Jabaal Sheard (foot) and Johnson Bademosi (concussion) were labeled questionable on Cleveland's final injury report for Week 12.

Meanwhile. the following players were ruled as probable: Barkevious Mingo (shoulder), Ahtyba Rubin (knee) and Desmond Bryant (wrist).

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for Week 12 at Atlanta
Tank Carder
News
The Browns list a whopping 16 players on their Friday injury report, but half are probable for the Week 17 battle in Pittsburgh, including All-Pro tackle Joe Thomas (back). The other offensive players among them are running back Willis McGahee (knee) and tackle Mitchell Schwartz (toe).

The four defensive probables are linebackers Paul Kruger (illness) and Tank Carder (shoulder), safety Jordan Poyer (toe) and safety T.J. Ward (shoulder, illness). Punter Spencer Lanning (knee) is also probable.

Keith Pough
News
The Bills have officially released 18 players from its roster on Friday, the team announced.

Players released were linebacker Kourtnei Brown, running back Zach Brown, cornerback Crezdon Butler, guard Antoine Caldwell, guard Zack Chibane, defensive back Jordan Dangerfield, tight end Dorin Dickerson, running back Kendall Gaskins, defensive lineman Jarron Gilbert, cornerback T.J. Heath, wide receiver Brandon Kaufman, quarterback Matt Leinart, linebacker Keith Pough, tight end Nick Provo, tackle Zebrie Sanders, linebacker Brian Smith and center David Snow.
Barkevious Mingo
News
Browns outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo might need surgery after the season to fix his injured shoulder, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer. He's currently "playing with a harness and is virtually a one-armed defender," the paper said.

Mingo has 29 tackles and a sack in nine games.

Injury
Shoulder - Probable for Week 12 at Atlanta
K'Waun Williams
News
The Browns listed 10 players on its final injury report leading up to Week 9 against Tampa Bay. Jordan Cameron (concussion) and Phillip Taylor (knee) were the only two players ruled out for Sunday. Rodney Smith is the only questionable on the list.

Meanwhile, Desmond Bryant (wrist), Jim Leonard (hamstring), Barkevious Mingo (shoulder), Ahtyba Rubin (ankle), Joe Thomas (rest), K'Waun Williams (shoulder, neck) and Billy Winn (quad) were all labeled probable.

Taylor Gabriel
News
Browns emerging wideout Taylor Gabriel proved worthy of attention Sunday against the visiting Texans. He tied teammate Andrew Hawkins for game honors with 13 targets.

The undrafted free agent caught just five of those passes from an inaccurate Brian Hoyer, but did total 92 yards. He has 29 receptions on the year for 527 yards and an impressive 18.2 YPC average.

Gabriel and the Browns are set to play against the host Falcons in Week 11.

Jim Dray
News
The Browns were a mess Sunday against Houston, but several players did make small contributuons to their offensive effort.

Among them was tight end Jim Dray, who filled in admirably for usual starter Jordan Cameron with two catches for 46 yards. Not so proficient was wideout Miles Austin, who dropped two critical passes, one of which he bobbled into an interception down the stretch. Miles finished with three catches for 31 yards.

Running back Terrance West added 12 yards on five carries while wideout Travis Benjamin and tight end Gary Barnidge pitched in with one catch each.

Ishmaa'ily Kitchen
News

Ishmaa'ily Kitchen is set to start in his place.

News
The Browns announced they put defensive end Armonty Bryant (knee) on injured reserve and signed defensive lineman Sione Fua. Fua was among the Broncos' final preseason cuts.
Injury

They are defensive linemen Billy Winn (toe) and Desmond Bryant (wrist), wideout Andrew Hawkins (thigh/knee), center Nick McDonald (calf) and linebacker Barkevious Mingo (shoulder).
Alex Mack
News
The faint hopes that Browns Pro Bowl center Alex Mack could return from a broken leg at some point this season have died. He was placed Friday on season-ending IR.

Mack broke his leg in Cleveland's victory Sunday over Pittsburgh. He had never missed a snap in an NFL game.

Injury
Ray Agnew

Karim Barton
News
The Browns signed quarterback Connor Shaw, linebackers Justin Staples and Keith Pough, offensive linemen Patrick Lewis and Karim Barton, tight end Emmanuel Ogbuehi and receiver Charles Johnson to their practice squad.
Joe Haden
News
Browns Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden has received a thumbs-up for the Week 6 game against archrival Pittsburgh despite a hip problem that prevented him from practicing Wednesday and Thursday. Haden's presence could prove critical in containing Steelers prolific wide receiver Antonio Brown.
Zac Diles
News
The Browns signed linebacker Zac Diles, who was waived by Houston last week, reports the Medina Gazette.
Jim Leonhard
News
The Browns listed defensive lineman Phil Taylor (knee) and wide receiver Rodney Smith (hamstring) out for Week 8 against Oakland. Deemed questionable were defensive end Billy Winn (quadriceps) and safety Jim Leonhard (ankle).

Meanwhile, defensive end Desmond Bryant (wrist), outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo (shoulder), defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin (ankle) and cornerback K'Waun Williams (concussion) were all labeled probable.

Craig Robertson
News
The Browns injury report for Week 15 against the Bears featured six players from the defensive side of the ball, all of whom were expected to take the field Sunday.  As expected, all six are active prior to kickoff: linebackers Tank Carder (shoulder), D'Qwell Jackson (ankle), Paul Kruger (elbow) and Craig Robertson (knee); defensive lineman Ahtyba Rubin (calf); and defensive back T.J. Ward (shoulder). 
Terrance West
News
The Browns have struggled to find playing time for all three members of their crowded backfield recently, and Ben Tate was open about his unhappiness with his role. The team took care of that problem by waiving him Tuesday, which should open things up in Cleveland at least a little more.

Isaiah Crowell got the start in the team's most recent game against the Texans in Week 11, rushing for 61 yards on 14 carries, while Tate got just two carries and Terrance West received just five. Additionally, Crowell received 66 percent of the snaps Sunday, while West actually had a smaller role than Tate, seeing the field on just 10 percent of the team's plays. However, West is also just two weeks removed from getting his own start and rushing for 94 yards on a team-high 26 carries, so it's hard to say where the team will go from here.

Crowell has been the best back in Cleveland on a per-carry basis, leading the team in yards per carry, first downs and rushes of longer than 20 yards. Of course, he is also the only Browns back to put the ball on the turf so far, with three fumbles in 78 carries. Coaches can be fickle about running backs with fumble histories, which makes Crowell somewhat risky, even if he looks like the best back of the two right now.

In the short term, Crowell looks like the back to own in Cleveland if you can only have one. However, West should still get plenty of carries down the stretch, and has plenty of Fantasy value of his own. 

Jabaal Sheard
News
A speedy recovery from a foot injury had Browns defensive end Jabaal Sheard practicing Friday, though only on a very limited basis. He is listed as questionable for the Week 12 game in Atlanta. A spate of injuries in the Cleveland front seven would make his availability a huge bonus.
Injury
Foot - Questionable for Week 12 at Atlanta
Mitchell Schwartz
News
One of the reasons Johnny Manziel was such a spectacular player in college was because he was able to extend a play and throw to a big receiver down the field. Landing with the Browns is a total win for Johnny Football because he'll have Josh Gordon, Jordan Cameron, Greg Little and Nate Burleson as down-field targets along with Andrew Hawkins as a quick, short-area weapon. Ben Tate rumbling in the backfield doesn't hurt either.

Another impressive factor is the Browns O-line, which has two studs in left tackle Joe Thomas and center Alex Mack. If the line can improve from last season (we're looking at you, Mitchell Schwartz), then Manziel will have time to make good throws.

Of all the places he could have gone in the draft, Cleveland's the best fit. Not only should he inject life into the franchise but he should end up starting in Week 1 against the Steelers. Expect Manziel to get taken late in every single seasonal draft as a combo backup Fantasy QB/sleeper who could get some serious trade value. He'll get picked in the middle rounds in dynasty/keeper leagues and should be considered a Top 5 choice in rookie-only drafts.
Andrew Hawkins
News
Browns wide receiver Andrew Hawkins found the end zone yet again Sunday, in a 23-7 loss to the Texans in Week 11.

Hawkins scored on a 32-yard catch-and-run in the first half, his second touchdown in three games, as well as of the season. He hauled in six of the 13 passes thrown his way otherwise, for 97 yards, leaving him just 3 yards short of his second 100-yard game of the season.

Hawkins is a bit short of the pace needed for a 1,000-yard season, but has been productive more often than not this season. He has at least 70 yards in six of 10 games, and has been targeted at least eight times in all but one game. Hawkins is also have more success finding the end zone recently, which only enhances his Fantasy value.

Hawkins isn't the biggest name at the wide receiver position, but he's getting the job done this season, and should be considered a worthwhile Fantasy option in many leagues down the stretch. 

Gary Barnidge
News
The Browns were a mess Sunday against Houston, but several players did make small contributuons to their offensive effort.

Among them was tight end Jim Dray, who filled in admirably for usual starter Jordan Cameron with two catches for 46 yards. Not so proficient was wideout Miles Austin, who dropped two critical passes, one of which he bobbled into an interception down the stretch. Miles finished with three catches for 31 yards.

Running back Terrance West added 12 yards on five carries while wideout Travis Benjamin and tight end Gary Barnidge pitched in with one catch each.

Eric Martin
News
The Browns unveiled a lengthy injury report for Week 6 against Pittsburgh. Wide receiver Rodney Smith (hamstring) and defensive lineman Phillip Taylor (knee) and Billy Winn (quad) have been officially ruled out for the game.

Deemed questionable were star cornerback Joe Haden (hip), linebacker Paul Kruger (back) and defensive lineman Ahtyba Rubin (ankle).

Defensive lineman Desmond Bryant (wrist), tight end Jordan Cameron (ankle, shoulder), defensive back Tashaun Gipson (shoulder), offensive lineman John Greco (knee), linebacker Eric Martin (personal), defensive back Buster Skrine (thumb), running back Ben Tate (finger) and offensive lineman Joe Thomas (rest) have been all ruled probable for Sunday.

Ahtyba Rubin
News
Browns defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin was a full participant in Thursday practice after missing the Wednesday session with a knee issue.

The Browns have been devastated by injuries in their front seven. Defensive lineman Phil Taylor and linebacker Karlos Dansby are out while defensive end Jabaal Sheard is not expected to play Sunday in Atlanta.

Injury
Knee - Probable for Week 12 at Atlanta
Brian Hoyer
News
Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer was harassed by the Texans on Sunday and victimized by drops, but he also often missed his targets in one of the worst performances of his career.

Hoyer completed just 20 of 50 psses for 330 yards and a perfectly thrown interception that doinked off the hands of wide receiver Miles Austin. Hoyer's lone touchdown was tossed to a wide-open Andrew Hawkins for 32 yards and tied the game at 7-7.

The quarterback was particularly bad in the third quarter, hitting on just 2 of 11 for 23 yards. He threw for 145 yards in the fourth, but mostly in desperation.

Hoyer will attempt to bounce back next Sunday in Atlanta.

Desmond Bryant
News
The Browns ruled Jordan Cameron (concussion) and Marlon Moore (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Karlos Dansby (knee) was the only player deemed doubtful, while Jabaal Sheard (foot) and Johnson Bademosi (concussion) were labeled questionable on Cleveland's final injury report for Week 12.

Meanwhile. the following players were ruled as probable: Barkevious Mingo (shoulder), Ahtyba Rubin (knee) and Desmond Bryant (wrist).

Injury
Wrist - Probable for Week 12 at Atlanta
Braxston Cave

The Redskins signed offensive lineman Tevita Stevens to the practice squad and released offensive lineman Braxston Cave from the squad.
Jamie Meder
News
The Ravens are down to 53 players, thanks to a series of Saturday cuts.

The offensive players now gone are linemen Parker Graham, A.Q. Shipley and Ryan Jensen, tight end Phillip Supernaw, quarterback Keith Wenning and running back Fitzgerald Toussaint.

Those on defense include defensive backs Dominique Franks, Derek Cox, Tramain Jacobs and Sammy Seamster, linebacker John Simon and linemen Jamie Meder and A.J. Pataiali'i.

The team also placed wide receiver Jeremy Butler on injured reserve.

Isaiah Crowell
News
Browns running back Isaiah Crowell got a surprise start Sunday against Houston. What was not a surprise was his critical fumble in the second quarter on first down with his team one yard short of the red zone. He has been plagued by fumblitis all season.

Crowell had shined until then. He broke up the middle and cut right for a 35-yard gain on the team's second possession of the game and finished the first quarter with 42 yards on four attempts. He did little, however, in the second half, and ended up with 61 yards on 14 carries. He added two receptions for 30 yards.

He will seek greater consistency and production when the Browns play at Atlanta in Week 12.

Sione Fua
News
The Browns announced they put defensive end Armonty Bryant (knee) on injured reserve and signed defensive lineman Sione Fua. Fua was among the Broncos' final preseason cuts.
Jordan Cameron
News
Browns tight end Jordan Cameron told reporters Friday that he never contemplated retirement in the wake of sustaining another concussion.

"If I felt my future was in question, I wouldn't comeback," he said via the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram.

Cameron returned to practice Friday, but will miss his fourth straight game when Cleveland plays at Atlanta on Sunday. He is hoping to return in Week 13 against Buffalo in what could be a critical game as both teams pursue a playoff berth.

Injury
Concussion - Out for Week 12 at Atlanta
Miles Austin
News
The Browns were a mess Sunday against Houston, but several players did make small contributuons to their offensive effort.

Among them was tight end Jim Dray, who filled in admirably for usual starter Jordan Cameron with two catches for 46 yards.

Running back Terrance West added 12 yards on five carries while wideout Travis Benjamin and tight end Gary Barnidge pitched in with one catch each.

The healthy scratches are wideout Rodney Smith, cornerback Pierre Desir, running back Glenn Winston, offsensive lineman Vinston Painter and linebacker Keith Pough.

Joel Bitonio
News
With the No. 35 pick in the NFL Draft, the Browns selected offensive lineman Joel Bitonio from Nevada.

Bitonio is 6-foot-4, 302 pounds. He was a tackle in college, but he could also play guard for the Browns if needed.

Bitonio started his last 38 games, including 26 at right tackle and 12 at left tackle. According to one stats service, since the beginning of the 2012 season, he gave up only one quarterback pressure and two sacks and was penalized only five times through a span of 2,054 snaps.

He has the chance to compete for a starting job in training camp and could play left guard for the Browns this year.

Jordan Poyer
News
The Browns list a whopping 16 players on their Friday injury report, but half are probable for the Week 17 battle in Pittsburgh, including All-Pro tackle Joe Thomas (back). The other offensive players among them are running back Willis McGahee (knee) and tackle Mitchell Schwartz (toe).

The four defensive probables are linebackers Paul Kruger (illness) and Tank Carder (shoulder), safety Jordan Poyer (toe) and safety T.J. Ward (shoulder, illness). Punter Spencer Lanning (knee) is also probable.

Michael Bowie

The Browns placed linebacker Darius Eubanks and offensive lineman Michael Bowie on injured reserve, ending their seasons. Both players had shoulder surgery this month.
Injury
Billy Cundiff

Browns placekicker Billy Cundiff got one chance to kick a field goal Sunday against Houston - and he blew it.

Johnny Manziel
News
With an eye on Week 8 and beyond, Jamey Eisenberg tabbed his top quarterbacks on the waiver wire Tuesday, headlined by the Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill, who is owned in just 43 percent of CBSSports.com leagues at this point.

Additionally, Jamey eyes a few key stashes who might be worth your time if you are having trouble at the position or just have a roster spot to fill. Specifically, recovering Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (36 percent) and Johnny Manziel (13 percent), the Browns' backup, could be worth a flier.

Among quarterbacks with a lower ceiling who nonetheless have jobs locked down, Kyle Orton of the Bills (12 percent) and Alex Smith of the Chiefs (59 percent) have some value, with matchups against the Jets and Rams, respectively, for Week 8.
