Position Listing
Don Jones
The Saints made a number of changes to their roster on Saturday, per ESPN.com.

Running back Tim Hightower and offensive lineman Mike McGlynn were cut. Linebacker Davis Tull, who is nursing a shoulder injury, was put on the injured reserve.

New Orleans also added safety Don Jones , wide receiver Seantavius Jones and fullback Toben Opurum to the active roster from the practice squad.

Anthony Fabiano
No Updates
Austin Reiter
The Redskins have signed two of their draft picks to four-year deals, a source has told the Washington Post.

Cornerback Tevin Mitchel, a sixth-rounder, as well as seventh-round center Austin Reiter have both reportedly finalized their agreements.

Xavier Cooper
Browns rookie defensive tackle Xavier Cooper has opened eyes in training camp and through two preseason games. Those eyes opened wider when he registered sacks two and three Thursday night against Buffalo.

The Browns selected Cooper late in the third round because they were intrigued by his quick first step, according to the team website. His success hasn't surprised fellow Browns rookie lineman Dylan Wynn, who played against Cooper in college.

"Coop's been killing it," Wynn said. "He's a monster. He was just like that at Washington State ... He's a special player. He definitely got slept on in the draft and that's why he went third round. ... He just gets it done."

Alvin Bailey
Seahawks guard Alvin Bailey had a productive offseason. Bailey lost 30 pounds in the team's offseason conditioning program and is now in the best shape of his career. 

""That's a big statement," coach Pete Carroll told Seattle's 710 AM radio. "Everybody appreciates that. The fact that he's worked so hard shows he realizes his opportunity here. ... He's a very smart kid, and he doesn't get out of whack by the challenges out there, but at 350, he could be a little bit lighter."

Danny Shelton
Shelton reported to minicamp at 335 pounds, which he claims is "close to 30 pounds" less than what he weighed last season, Cleveland.com reports.

Shelton was listed at 339 pounds during the course of 2015, but, if his claim is accurate, then he actually finished last season weighing nearly 365-370 pounds. Unsurprisingly, he played on just 48 percent of the Browns'defensive snaps and consistently appeared to wear down during the second half of games. Operating at a lower playing weight will help Shelton stay healthy and keep pressure off his knees, as well as allow the Browns to keep their first-round defensive tackle on the field more often.

Nate Orchard
Orchard (groin) is active Sunday against the Bengals.

Orchard was limited in practice all week, but will suit up and presumably take on a meaningful snap count from the outside linebacker spot in the Week 13 contest.

Ankle - Did Not Practice on Wednesday. Doubtful for Week 4 at Washington
Duke Johnson
Johnson rushed for 69 yards on 10 carries and added another 12 yards on five catches in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

Johnson's 15 touches were his most since Week 5 of last season and eclipsed the 13 combined he had in the first two weeks of the season. The Browns' poor luck at quarterback could wind up benefiting Johnson as the Browns, as seen on Sunday, are likely to be increasingly run-heavy as they protect their rookie quarterback. His abilities as a receiver could provide the young Cody Kessler with a reliable target underneath making Johnson - who has 12 catches so far this season - a potential factor in PPR leagues.

Terrelle Pryor
Pryor reeled in eight of 14 targets for 144 yards in Sunday's loss to Miami. He added 21 yards and a touchdown on four carries and completed three of five passes for 35 yards.

Pryor had one of the most interesting box scores you'll see on Sunday, lining up all over the field on his way to 200 total yards. The highlight was his three-yard sweep for a touchdown after lining up at quarterback near the goal line. If the Browns choose to continue to deploy Pryor as a goal-line quarterback, his value should remain high even after Josh Gordon returns to, presumably, take some of his targets.

Kevin Hogan
Hogan is joining the Cleveland practice squad, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Selected in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, Hogan landed with a Kansas City team that was looking to replace backup quarterback Chase Daniels. The Chiefs ultimately opted to go with more experience behind Alex Smith, keeping Nick Foles and Tyler Bray on the 53-man roster. Hogan found a nice landing spot in Cleveland, as the Browns may look to replace both Robert Griffin and Josh McCown after the season. Third-round rookie Cody Kessler is the team's No. 3 quarterback.

Glenn Winston
Winston (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Nate Ulrich of Ohio.com 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.

Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Charlie Whitehurst
Whitehurst signed with the Browns on Tuesday.

As expected, Whitehurst was signed to serve as Cody Kessler's backup, with Josh McCown (shoulder) out for at least one week. Kevin Hogan will likely stay on the practice squad, leaving Whitehurst one injury away from taking the reins.

Ed Reynolds
The Eagles announced their final cuts to trim the roster to 53 players Saturday.

The following players were all released Saturday: linebackers Emmanuel Acho and Josh Kaddu; defensive linemen Wade Keliikipi and Damion Square; defensive backs Curtis Marsh, Roc Carmichael, Keelan Johnson and Ed Reynolds; quarterback G.J. Kinne; running backs Kenjon Barner (waived/injured), Henry Josey and Matthew Tucker; wide receiver Ifeanyi Momah, Quron Pratt, Will Murphy and Damaris Johnson ; kicker Alex Henery; and offensive linemen Kevin Graf and Josh Andrews.

The team also added wide receiver Arrelious Benn (back) and linebacker Travis Long (knee) to injured reserve. 

Tyrone Holmes
Holmes was released by the Jaguars on Friday, Mike Kaye of First Coast News reports.

Holmes was selected in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, but will not be on the roster for Week 1. He figured to have a long shot at making the final cut, as he was fourth on the depth chart at left defensive end.

Demario Davis
Davis registered nine tackles (four solo) including one for a loss and a quarterback hit during Sunday's loss to the Ravens.

The Browns' defense blew a 20-2 lead, but Davis led the Browns with nine total tackles and now has 10 solo tackles on the season after a very productive game against Baltimore.

Jamar Taylor
Taylor registered a solo tackle and an interception against the Dolphins on Sunday.

Sunday's interception was the first of Taylor's career, as he was able to pick off Ryan Tannehill on the second play of the game. Aside from that, Taylor was quiet, with just one tackle and one pass deflection.

Josh McCown
McCown is expected to be sidelined for 2-to-4 weeks because of a strain and hairline crack in his non-throwing shoulder, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

McCown suffered the injury in Week 2 against the Ravens, and while he was apparently pushing to play Sunday against the Dolphins, he will now miss multiple weeks because of the issue. With Robert Griffin (shoulder) also out, Cody Kessler will be under center for the Browns.

Collarbone - Did Not Practice on Wednesday. Out for Week 4 at Washington
Josh Gordon
Gordon, who remains suspended by the NFL through Week 4 for violations of the league's substance abuse policies, released a statement Thursday relaying his decision to "enter an in-patient rehabilitation facility," ESPN.com reports. "After careful thought and deep consideration I've decided that I need to step away from pursuing my return to the Browns and my football career to enter an in-patient rehabilitation facility," Gordon said in the statement.

Meanwhile, Browns executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown noted in a statement of his own, that Gordon's "singular focus must be on his own health. We want nothing more than for Josh to be successful personally and professionally and will not comment on his status with the organization at this time." The wideout's return to the playing field is thus on hold, with no timetable outlined for when he might rejoin the Browns. Heading in Week 4, Terrelle Pryor and Andrew Hawkins are listed as the team's starting wideouts, with Corey Coleman sidelined by a hand injury. Gordon's continued absence, coupled with Coleman's injury, extends the window in which Pryor profiles as the team's top option at the position.

Suspension - Suspended until Week 5 vs. New England
Charley Hughlett
Quarterback Brian Hoyer (shoulder) and cornerback Justin Gilbert, who is being disciplined, headline the inactives posted by the Browns for their Sunday game in Baltimore. Also hurt and out are defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin (ankle) and tackle Ryan Seymour (hamstring).

A trio of healthy scratches include long snapper Charley Hughlett, offensive lineman Andrew McDonald and wideout Phil Bates.

John Greco
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. 
Josh Boyce
Boyce was waived by the Browns, the team announced Monday.

Boyce signed a contract with the Browns just a week ago after being waived by the Colts, but the wide receiver was unable to find a depth spot on the team despite Cleveland's receiving corps battling injuries. Two cuts this offseason on top of the fact that Boyce hasn't played since his rookie year in 2013 do not bode well for his chances in the NFL moving forward.

Chris Kirksey
Kirksey finished with six tackles (four solo) and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

Kirksey, along with defensive lineman Carl Nassib, led the team with two QB hits, with one going for a third-down sack. Overall, it was a tough day for the Browns' defense, but Kirksey's play should be encouraging.

Cameron Erving
Erving (chest) will not play Sunday against the Redskins according to coach Hue Jackson, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Fellow center John Greco is likely to get the start as the Browns continue to play it safe with Erving.

Chest - Did Not Practice on Wednesday. Out for Week 4 at Washington
Corey Lemonier
Head coach Hue Jackson said Lemonier will see more opportunities going forward, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

With Nate Orchard (ankle) out for an extended period of time, Lemonier is due for an uptick in playing time. The 24-year-old linebacker registered three tackles, one sack and a forced fumble while playing only 16 snaps during Sunday's matchup against Miami. It'll be interesting to see how productive he is with an increased workload.

Jordan Payton
Payton (coaches decision) remains on the inactive list Sunday against the Ravens.

Payton will be a healthy scratch for the second straight week, as the rookie wideout doesn't appear to be any closer to carving out a role in the Cleveland offense.

George Atkinson
Atkinson has replaced Duke Johnson as Cleveland's kick returner, according to the team's official website.

This move comes as a bit of a surprise, as Duke Johnson never even returned a kick during Sunday's loss to the Eagles, thanks to six touchbacks by Caleb Sturgis. The Browns may, however, want a more aggressive returner who isn't afraid of taking the ball out of the end zone, and Atkinson might just be the guy to do that.

Tramon Williams
Williams (shoulder) was unable to participate in Thursday's practice.

Williams has missed consecutive days of practice after injuring his shoulder during Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, putting his Week 4 availability in serious doubt. If he's unable to go, rookie Briean Boddy-Calhoun, who returned an interception for a touchdown on Sunday, would be in line for more playing time.

Shoulder - Did Not Practice on Wednesday. Questionable for Week 4 at Washington
Robert Griffin III
Griffin is expected to miss 10-to-12 weeks because of his shoulder injury, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Griffin was placed on the injured reserve list this week, which was going to keep him out for eight games already, but the new timeline for his recovery could sideline him for the entire season. Josh McCown will get the start Sunday against the Ravens, and he is likely to hold onto the starting job as long as he stays healthy.

Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Darius Jennings
Jennings caught two passes on five targets for 25 yards Thursday against the Bears.

After a rather uneventful preseason (one catch for 12 yards), Jennings finally found himself in the middle of the action Thursday with five targets. Still, the chances of him beating out Taylor Gabriel and/or Rashard Jennings for third-string wide receiver are very slim.

Tank Carder
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.

Marcus Burley
Burley (groin) returned to the practice field Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Burley has been sidelined since the end of August with a groin injury and was unable to participate in Sunday's game against the Eagles. He seems to be on track to suit up versus Baltimore, but his primary role will be on special teams.

Nile Lawrence-Stample
Lawrence-Stample (shoulder) was placed on the Browns' injured reserve list, Ohio.com 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.

Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Carl Nassib
Nassib (hand) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Nassib is a week out of surgery on his broken hand, and not yet ready to return to game action at this point. Xavier Cooper and Tyrone Holmes will step up at left defensive end, while Nassib's next chance to return will be Week 5 against the Patriots.

Hand - Did Not Practice on Wednesday. Out for Week 4 at Washington
Michael Palardy
The Rams reached the NFL's 75-man roster limit Tuesday with the release of 13 players, per ESPN.com, who include: OT Steven Baker, OT Travis Bond, CB Imoan Claiborne, S Jay Hughes, LB Keshaun Malone, LS Tyler Ott, K/P Michael Palardy, WR Tyler Slavin, TE Brad Smelley (waived/injured), LB Korey Toomer (waived/injured), C David Wang, WR Damian Williams (contract terminated) and DT Doug Worthington.

CB E.J. Gaines (foot) was placed on injured reserve. The Rams had previously waived/injured receiver Isiah Ferguson but he reverted to injured reserve with a torn ACL.

Rannell Hall
Hall will miss the entire 2016 season with a fractured fibula, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

Hall was already a long shot to make the Browns' 53-man roster given his position as the number seven or eight receiver, at best, on the wide receiver depth chart. The second-year player will hope for a clean recovery and another chance to make a final roster next season.

Leg - Injured Reserve
Armonty Bryant
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.

Suspension - Suspended until Week 5 vs. New England
Ricardo Louis
Louis (hamstring) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Louis returned to practice last Monday but was still held out of Cleveland's final preseason game. The fourth-round rookie didn't get a chance to strut his stuff during the exhibition schedule, and he'll likely open the season no higher than fourth on the depth chart, even though Josh Gordon is suspended. The Browns enter Week 1 carrying four rookie wideouts on the roster, with Louis joined by Corey Coleman (first round), Rashard Higgins (fifth) and Jordan Payton (fifth). At least one of the four figures to be inactive for Sunday's game in Philadelphia, and it certainly won't be Coleman.

Dominique Alexander
No Updates
Randall Telfer
Telfer (neck) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, according to the team's official site.

Telfer was limited in practice Wednesday but all signs point to him playing against the Dolphins after fully participating on Thursday. With No. 1 wide receiver Corey Coleman (hand) out for an extended period of time, the Browns may end up using more two-tight end formations in order to open up the passing game for Cody Kessler. Should this happen, Telfer's fantasy should get a small boost.

Dennis Parks
Knee - Injured Reserve
Joe Haden
Even though Haden didn't expect to practice, he participated in individual drills in the period open to the media, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Haden was a game-time decision against the Dolphins and ended up sitting the contest out. The fact that he's back at practice is encouraging, although his status should be monitored throughout the week.

Groin - Limited Practice on Wednesday. Questionable for Week 4 at Washington
Joe Schobert
The Brown selected Schobert in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 99th overall.

Schobert is an inside linebacker for Cleveland's 3-4, but one who has more blitzing ability than the average inside linebacker. Playing outside in Wisconsin's 3-4, Schobert totaled 79 tackles and 9.5 sacks last year, as well as 19.5 tackles for loss.

Andrew Hawkins
Head coach Hue Jackson said Hawkins will start in place of Corey Coleman (hand) against the Dolphins on Sunday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Hawkins will line up alongside Terrelle Pryor as the Browns' starting wide receivers, and the 30-year-old veteran could see more targets than he did in the first two weeks of the season (six). On the other hand, rookie quarterback Cody Kessler will be under center for the first time in his career, and it's unclear how much offensive responsibility he will be given. Cleveland may just end up pounding the ball with Isaiah Crowell, limiting Hawkins' fantasy value.

Gary Barnidge
Barnidge secured four passes (five targets) for 37 yards during Sunday's loss to the Ravens.

Though he wasn't heavily used, Barnidge saw an increase in targets and snaps with Josh McCown (shoulder) at the helm of the offense. The 30-year-old developed a nice relationship with McCown in 2015, and so far that's carried over into this year. McCown, however, is a bit banged up, and if he's unable to go against the Dolphins in Week 3, Cody Kessler will take over, which could negatively affect Barnidge, especially if the Browns ease Kessler in and rely on their running game.

Gabe Wright
Wright was signed to the active roster from the team's practice squad Tuesday, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

With Robert Griffin (shoulder) on injured reserve, Cleveland needed to add someone to round out its roster back to 53. Originally drafted by the Lions in the fourth round of the 2015 draft, Wright will most likely back up nose tackle Danny Shelton on a defense that is in need of any help it can get.

Dylan Wynn
Wynn left practice with an ankle injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

The severity of the injury is undisclosed. Consider Wynn day-to-day for the time being with each passing practice serving as a blow to Wynn's odds of making the active roster.

Ankle - Injured Reserve
Patrick Murray
Murray (knee) was placed on IR by the Browns on Saturday, Mary Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

Murray's left knee injury opened the door for the signing of kicker Cody Parkey to the Browns, who'll take over the kicking duties Sunday against the Dolphins. Murray is no stranger to knee injuries, having torn his ACL of the same leg two years ago.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Rajion Neal
Neal (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.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Desmond Bryant
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.

Chest - Out for Week 4 at Washington
Trey Caldwell
Caldwell suffered a hamstring injury during the onset of training camp, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

It's currently unclear whether the hamstring was merely tweaked or if Caldwell has suffered something worse. Either way, there has been no timeline provided for his return. When healthy, the Browns' fifth-round pick will compete for a role out of the slot.

Hamstring - Questionable for Week 4 at Washington
Jamie Meder
The Browns announced several roster moves on Saturday, per FOX Sports Ohio. The team promoted quarterback Connor Shaw and defensive lineman Jamie Meder from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster. In a corresponding move, Cleveland waived linebacker Eric Martin and tight end Ryan Taylor.
Isaiah Crowell
Crowell (knee) practiced fully Thursday.

Crowell's return to a full practice Thursday puts him on track to continue to work in tandem with Duke Johnson on Sunday against Washington. Crowell turned his 42 Week 3 snaps against Miami into 15 carries for 79 yards, while Johnson's 41 snaps resulted in 10 carries for 69 yards and five caches for 12 yards.

Shon Coleman
No Updates
Terrell Watson
Watson was waived on Sunday after the the team claimed five players, according to the team's official website.

Watson was able to make the final cut on Saturday, as the Browns got down to 53 players, but Sunday was a different story. The 23-year-old, along with fellow running back Raheem Mostert were waived in lieu of Cleveland claiming George Atkinson off waivers from the Raiders.

Joel Bitonio
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.

Malcolm Johnson
Johnson (concussion) returned to practice on Monday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Johnson sustained a concussion over a week ago, forcing him to sit out of the first week of practice. He has now passed concussion protocol testing and can return to the field. He will be eligible to play in Saturday's preseason opener against the Packers.

Jordan Poyer
Poyer had 11 total tackles and a stuff in Cleveland's Sunday loss to the Rams.

The third-year corner filled in for an injured Tashaun Gipson, proving his worth with five solo tackles and six assisted tackles on the day. Despite the solid performance, the reserve has yet to prove himself as a starter in the Browns' defense, meaning that he will most likely not be a strong fantasy option just yet.

Stephen Paea
Paea announced on his Twitter account Friday that he signed with the Browns.

Paea was recently cut by the Redskins Tuesday, but will now add solid depth to a injury-riddled defensive line in Cleveland.

Seth Devalve
DeValve caught two passes on two targets for 11 yards in a losing effort against the Bears on Thursday night.

DeValve, currently battling for backup tight end, outplayed Randall Telfer on Thursday, although that may not matter when it's all said and done. Telfer was on the field along with Gary Barnidge for Cleveland's first two drives, all but assuring he made the roster.

Knee - Questionable for Week 4 vs. Cleveland

Corey Coleman
Coleman will not require surgery on his fractured hand and is slated to miss 4-to-6 weeks.

It was confirmed Wednesday that Coleman suffered a fractured hand during practice, but the real question at the time was the duration of his absence. After seeing a hand specialist, the team determined that surgery during the season is off the table, and the rookie wideout is now on track to miss roughly a month. Already down two quarterbacks, Coleman's absence will cost the Browns their leading pass catcher through the season's first two weeks, setting up Terrelle Pryor and Andrew Hawkins for extra targets.

Hand - Did Not Practice on Wednesday. Out for Week 4 at Washington
Connor Hamlett
Hamlett caught one pass for nine yards on one target against the Buccaneers on Friday.

Hamlett was recently bumped up to backup tight end behind Gary Barnidge despite failing to register a catch in his first two preseason games. That changed on Friday as Josh McCown found him for a nine-yard gain on his only catch of the night. Unless Barnidge gets injured, Hamlett's fantasy value is relatively low.

Cody Kessler
Kessler will start at quarterback once again Sunday against the Redskins, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

Kessler continuing in the Browns' starting job comes as no surprise, as veteran Josh McCown (collarbone) still isn't available following his Week 2 injury. In his first career start Sunday, Kessler completed 21 of 33 passes for 244 yards, but lost a fumble in Cleveland's overtime loss. He'll look to improve on that performance when facing the Redskins this Sunday.

Ibraheim Campbell
Campbell (hamstring) has been listed as out for the Browns' Week 3 game against Miami, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Campbell sat out practice this week due to his hamstring injury, making it unsurprising that he's been ruled out for Sunday. Derek Kindred will figure to see increased team and possibly start in Campbell's absence.

Hamstring - Did Not Practice on Wednesday. Questionable for Week 4 at Washington
Austin Pasztor
The Jaguars have re-signed exclusive rights free agent right tackle Austin Pasztor on Tuesday, per the team's official website. Pasztor, 24, started in all eight of his appearances last season before going down with a ruptured hamstring, cutting his 2014 campaign short.
Joe Thomas
Browns left tackle Joe Thomas left Monday's pratice after he had his leg rolled up on by rookie defensive lineman Danny Shelton, per Cleveland.com.

Thomas had his right knee and ankle examined on the sidelines before walking off the field and into the training room. The injury is not expected to be serious, and an MRI was ruled to be unnecessary.

"Uh, yeah, we'll know more,'' coach Mike Pettine said. "I don't think it's any serious. Yeah, normal (tests). Just getting checked.''

Britton Colquitt
The Broncos have ruled running backs Montee Ball (groin) and Ronnie Hillman (foot) out for Sunday's game against Miami, according to Denver's final injury report for Week 12. The team also listed tight ends Virgil Green (calf) and Julius Thomas (ankle) as questionable.

Meanwhile, the following players were deemed probable: David Bruton (ankle), Quinton Carter (knee), Ryan Clady (groin), Britton Colquitt (illness), Paul Cornick (shoulder), Emmanuel Sanders (concussion), Steven Johnson (ankle) and Juwan Thompson (knee).

Cody Parkey
Parkey missed three fields against Miami on Sunday, but head coach Hue Jackson said he plans on keeping him on the roster, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

Parkey was signed just a day before Sunday's game, so maybe Jackson is giving his kicker the benefit of the doubt for now. But if Parkey continues to fail to put points on the board, Cleveland might be forced to look for alternative options.

Emmanuel Ogbah
The Browns selected Ogbah in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 32nd overall.

Ogbah's athleticism might be a bit more linear than the ideal for an edge rusher, but his straight-line explosiveness and power check out quite well, and he was very productive at Oklahoma State, posting double-digit sacks each of the last two years. At 6-foot-4, 273 pounds, Ogbah did well for himself at the Combine by logging a 4.63-second 40, 35.5-inch vertical and 121-inch broad jump. He might be comparable to someone like Whitney Mercilus.

Briean Boddy-Calhoun
Boddy-Calhoun had four tackles (three solo), a pass deflection and an interception returned for a touchdown during Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

Due to Joe Haden (groin) being unable to suit up, Boddy-Calhoun got some unprecedented playing time and rewarded the team with a pass deflection and a pick-six in the second quarter of Sunday's game. Haden's injury doesn't believed to be serious, so Boddy-Calhoun's time in the sun may be brief.

Derrick Kindred
Kindred (ankle) will practice Wednesday and anticipates playing against the Ravens, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Kindred hurt his ankle during Sunday's loss to the Eagles, but the fact that he's practicing already suggests it isn't too serious. If he manages to get through the week without a setback, the rookie should have no problem suiting up versus Baltimore.

Dan France
The Bengals 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 guard Trey Hopkins on the reserve/injured list with a leg issue. Rookie quarterback AJ McCarron was put on the reserve/non-football injury list with a shoulder problem.

The Bengals also cut the following offensive players: tackles Dan France and Will Svitek, wide receivers Colin Lockett and Cobi Hamilton, center Trevor Robinson and running backs James Wilder and Nikita Whitlock.

Defenders waived by the Bengals include safety Danieal Manning, cornerbacks Onterio McCalebb and Victor Hampton, tackles Devon Still and David King and ends Sam Montgomery and Dontay Moch.

Cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris will begin serving a two-game drug suspension handed dowsn by the league.

Tracy Howard
Howard will not play in Thursday's preseason game against the Bears due to a hamstring injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal reports.

It's unclear at this time how Howard injured his hamstring or what the specifics of the injury are. He was in line to see a significant number of reps in the preseason finale if healthy, but those snaps will likely now go to Eric Patterson.

Rashard Higgins
Higgins will get more playing time with Corey Coleman (hand) sidelined for at least a month, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Head coach Hue Jackson said that Higgins "needs to play more," and his first opportunity will come Sunday against the Dolphins as Coleman works his way back from a broken hand. The rookie out of Colorado State has played just six snaps and has yet to haul in a pass this season. Getting involved in the passing game might prove to be difficult with unproven Cody Kessler now in at quarterback for the Browns, but at the very least, Higgins will see the field more.
