Position Listing
Vinston Painter
News
Browns linebacker Karlos Dansby, tight end Jordan Cameron, wide receiver Marlon Moore, wide receiver Rodney Smith, cornerback Pierre Desir, cornerback Robert Nelson and offensive lineman Vinston Painter were all ruled inactive Week 12 at Atlanta.
Phillip Taylor
News
The worst news for the Browns is that tight end Jordan Cameron (concussion) is out Sunday against Houston and could be done for the season, and defensive tackle Phillip Taylor (knee) is out for the year. But aside from special teams player Johnson Bademosi (concussion) being ruled out for the game against the Texans, the team is relatively healthy.

An exception could be safety Tashaun Gipson (concussion), who is questionable. The probables are defensive end Desmond Bryant (wrist), wideout Andrew Hawkins (thigh/knee), linebacker Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) and defensive tackle Billy Winn (toe).

Injury
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. 
Glenn Winston
News
Two concussed Browns have been declared inactive for their Week 11 game against Houston. They are tight end Jordan Cameron and defensive back Johnson Bademosi.

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).

Josh Gordon
News
Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer and star wide receiver Josh Gordon weren't entirely in sync in the latter's return from a 10-game suspension Week 12 at Atlanta, as evidenced by Hoyer's two interceptions late in the fourth quarter -- both on passes that sailed well beyond Gordon's reach. But even so, Gordon put up big numbers in his season debut, leading the Browns with eight catches for 120 yards.

Though the Browns initially said he'd play only 20-30 snaps, Gordon was consistently on the field, getting twice as many targets (16) as any other Browns player. And though his longest catch went for only 24 yards, he was targeted on several deep balls that, perhaps with a better rapport with Hoyer, could have resulted in big gains.

In other words, if you've stashed Gordon, the NFL's leading receiver last year, all this time, give yourself a pat on the back. He looks like he'll be a stud down the stretch and should have even bigger games than this one in store.

Robert Nelson
News
Browns linebacker Karlos Dansby, tight end Jordan Cameron, wide receiver Marlon Moore, wide receiver Rodney Smith, cornerback Pierre Desir, cornerback Robert Nelson and offensive lineman Vinston Painter were all ruled inactive Week 12 at Atlanta.
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).

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.

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.

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
Browns defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin has been given the right light for Sunday action against the host Jaguars. He was deemed questionable with an ankle injury. This will mark his second straight missed game.

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

Armonty Bryant
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
Ryan Seymour
News
The Browns claimed two players off waivers from the 49ers: running back Glenn Winston and offensive lineman Ryan Seymour.
Billy Winn
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).
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
News
The Browns re-signed fullback Ray Agnew after waiving fullback Kiero Small, the team announced.
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
Unlike Week 11 against Houston, Isaiah Crowell didn't lead the Browns in carries Week 12 at Atlanta, but he was once again the more effective of the two rookie running backs, picking up 88 yards on 12 carries. He also scored two touchdowns, the most impressive coming on a 26-yard run late in the third quarter in which he probably ran more horizontally than vertically, taking the ball past the left hash mark before cutting all the way back to the right sideline.

By comparison, Terrance West had 62 yards on 14 carries and was the only one of the two to catch a pass -- a 9-yarder. It wasn't a bad performance by any means, but West hasn't done anything to distinguish himself in the two games with Ben Tate out of the running.

True, Week 12 was the Browns' first game with Tate completely off the roster, so they're still feeling out their backfield. But while Crowell and West will probably continue to split carries going forward, Crowell is looking like the one to own in Fantasy. Chances are even with an even distribution of carries, they won't both contribute relevant numbers each week.

Jabaal Sheard
News
Browns linebacker Jabaal Sheard was cleared to play Week 12 at Atlanta after coming into the game as questionable due to a foot injury. It's good news for Sheard since earlier in the week there was some belief he might not return this season.
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 showed Sunday at Atlanta he can still be very productive even if he loses targets to star receiver Josh Gordon, who made his season debut after serving a 10-game suspension.

While Gordon led the team with eight catches for 120 yards, Hawkins wasn't far behind with five catches for 93 yards. He caught all five of his targets and his longest catch went 40 yards in the 26-24 win.

Hawkins has surpassed 90 receiving yards in two straight games. The Browns are back in action Week 13 at Buffalo.

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.

Brian Hoyer
News
For the third time in four games, Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer threw for 300 yards Week 12 at Atlanta.

He had 322, to be exact. It was his second-best single-game total this season. But because of some miscommunication with star wide receiver Josh Gordon, who was making his season debut after serving a 10-game suspension, he also had a season-high three interceptions, including two in the fourth quarter, both on passes that sailed well beyond Gordon's reach.

That's what miscommunication will do for a quarterback.

What will Gordon do for a quarterback? Well, even with all that miscommunication, he still led the Browns with 120 receiving yards. And that was with his longest catch going for just 24 yards. He and Hoyer failed to connect on all the deep balls -- again, a product of miscommunication.

The takeaway for Hoyer owners: Just imagine what can do when he and his star wide receiver are communicating. And I don't mean via text. Imagine when they've had more than just a few days of practice, when they've had a chance to get in sync and aren't missing on all those plays they could have made in Week 12.

Hoyer may be a so-so quarterback, but he's a so-so quarterback who could be in for a big finish, making him a player to monitor even in standard 12-team leagues.

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).

Braxston Cave
News
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 rookie running back Isaiah Crowell rushed for a career-high 88 yards on 12 carries and tied a career-high with two rushing touchdowns in a 26-24 win Week 12 at Atlanta. He had no catches.

Crowell tied the game at 7 with an 11-yard touchdown run with 1:33 left in the first quarter. He gave Cleveland a 23-14 lead with a 26-yard touchdown run with 46 seconds left in the third quarter. Crowell, whose previous career high was 77 rushing yards, also had two touchdowns in Week 1 against the Steelers.

Crowell has seven rushing touchdowns in 11 games. The Browns are back in action Week 13 at Buffalo.

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 - Missed Week 12 at Atlanta
Miles Austin
News
Browns wide receiver Miles Austin had a season-best 64 receiving yards on six catches during a 26-24 win Week 12 at Atlanta. He was targeted eight times.

Austin's previous best this season was 54 yards, which he achieved in Week 5 and Week 9. However, he extended his scoring slump to eight games Sunday.

The Browns are back in action Week 13 at Buffalo.

Rodney Smith
News
Browns linebacker Karlos Dansby, tight end Jordan Cameron, wide receiver Marlon Moore, wide receiver Rodney Smith, cornerback Pierre Desir, cornerback Robert Nelson and offensive lineman Vinston Painter were all ruled inactive Week 12 at Atlanta.
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
News
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

News
Browns kicker Billy Cundiff booted a 37-yard field goal as time expired Sunday, lifting Cleveland to a 26-24 win Week 12 at Atlanta. 

The game-winner was Cundiff's fourth made field goal. He had field goals of 33 and 37 yards in the second quarter, and a 32-yard field goal in the third quarter. Cundiff did miss a 60-yard field goal at the end of the first half.

He had two extra points Sunday and finished with a season-best 14 points. He has managed 10 or more points in three of his last five games.

The Browns are back in action Week 13 at Buffalo.

Browns free safety Tashaun Gipson will undergo an MRI Monday after suffering a potentially serious knee injury in Sunday's win over the Falcons, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Gipson had to be carted off the field after colliding with teammate Joe Haden in the fourth quarter Sunday. "Gipson is one of the best safeties, one of the top three in the NFL for sure," Haden said. "Losing him, you can't replace him, but in the NFL nobody is going to feel bad for you."

Gipson was seen on crutches after the game. The Browns are set to play the Bills in Week 13.

Buster Skrine
News
The doubtful status of surprising Browns rookie cornerback K'Waun Williams for the Sunday game in Jacksonville has forced Buster Skrine back inside as the nickel corner, ESPN.com is reporting.

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.
