Position Listing
Vinston Painter
News
The Browns have signed tackle Vinston Painter to the team's active roster. Painter was on the Broncos' practice squad.
Ben Tate
News
Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said the team is looking for one running back to "separate himself," according to ESPN.

Shanahan stressed that he's been happy with the play of Ben Tate, Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West, but added that he would love it if one of them stepped up. "We got a bunch of solid guys who do a good job," Shanahan said. "For one of those to get the bulk of the carries and take off, then that’s up to them. They got to show us they’re ahead of the other guys." 

Shanahan has had a history of riding one primary back in the past. "I’ve never had to rotate a bunch of running backs, because usually I’ve had a running back who’s usually able to separate himself from the others," he said. 

Tate is currently receiving the bulk of the carries for the club, but the team has mixed in Crowell and West frequently. 

Phillip Taylor
News
Browns defensive lineman Phillip Taylor is making progress in his recovery from knee surgery, but is not expected to play Week 8 against Oakland, according to the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram on Monday. It will be the third consecutive game he's missed to due to the injury. Taylor registered seven tackles before the injury.
Travis Benjamin
News
Several Browns receivers chipped in with catches to aid in their lopsided victory over Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Among them was Week 5 hero Travis Benjamin, who followed that two-touchdown effort by catching one pass for 31 yards and adding a three-yard run. Tight end Jim Dray did the same through the air while wideout Miles Austin added two receptions for 29 yards. Wide receiver Taylor Gabriel pitched in with a catch for 24 yards.

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
Phil Taylor (knee) and fellow defensive linemen Billy Winn (quad) and Ahtyba Rubin (ankle) headline the list of Browns inactives for Sunday against host Jacksonville. Also hurt are wideout Rodney Smith (hamstring) and cornerback K'Waun Williams (concussion).

The healthy scratches are defensive back Pierre Desir and running back Glenn Winston.

Paul Kruger
News
Browns front seven standouts Desmond Bryant (wrist) and Paul Kruger (back) have been cleared to play in Week 7 at Jacksonville. Both were listed as probable.
Nick McDonald
News
The Browns have a lengthy list of players sidelined for Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, as a result of a slew of injuries in recent weeks.

Defensive backs Buster Skrine (thumb) and Joe Haden (foot), and wide receiver Nate Burleson (hamstring) headline the list. Also among the inactives are: running back Edwin Baker (hamstring), defensive backs Pierre Desir (knee), Isaiah Trufant (knee), T.J. Heath (hip) and K'Waun Williams (hamstring), linebackers Eric Martin (concussion), Darius Eubanks (shoulder) and Keith Pough (ankle), defensive lineman Desmond Bryant (wrist), tight end Martell Webb (groin) and offensive linemen Michael Bowie (shoulder), Randall Harris (knee) and Nick McDonald (wrist). 

Kiero Small
News
The Browns announced Monday they signed fullback Kiero Small to the active roster. To clear a roster spot, the team waived fullback Ray Agnew.
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
The NFL and its players association agreed to a new drug policy that reduces Browns receiver Josh Gordon's one-year suspension to 10 games, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Gordon will be eligible to play Nov. 23 at Atlanta.

Gordon is expected to return to the Browns' facility this week for meetings and conditioning.

Injury
Suspension - Eligible to return Week 12 at Atlanta
Robert Nelson
News
The Browns have released a Sunday inactive list with only healthy scratches.

The inactives are defensive backs Pierre Desir and Robert Nelson, tight end Gerell Robinson, running back Glenn Winston, defensive linemen Ishmaa'ily Kitchen and John Hughes and wide receiver Rodney Smith.

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
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.

That could mean more playing time for rookie first round pick Justin Gilbert, who performed better in Week 6 after losing playing time to poor performance.

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 defensive newcomers, linebacker Karlos Dansby and safety Donte Whitner, both made an impression in their debuts with the team Sunday in Pittsburgh.

The former registered a sack, broke up two passes and finished with six tackles. The latter led the team with 13 tackles, including 12 solos.

They will seek to keep up the good work next Sunday against the visiting Saints.

Johnson Bademosi
No Updates
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
A lengthy Browns injury report issued Friday features four players ruled out for the Week 7 game in Jacksonville. Included are cornerback K'Waun Williams (concussion), wideout Rodney Smith (hamstring) and defensive linemen Phil Taylor (knee) and Billy Winn (quad).

Listed as questionable are defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin (ankle) and free safety Tashaun Gipson (thigh). The probables are defensive end Desmond Bryant (wrist), linebackers Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) and Paul Kruger (back) and featured back Ben Tate (finger).

Injury
Shoulder - Full practice. Probable for Week 8 vs. Oakland
K'Waun Williams
News
Phil Taylor (knee) and fellow defensive linemen Billy Winn (quad) and Ahtyba Rubin (ankle) headline the list of Browns inactives for Sunday against host Jacksonville. Also hurt are wideout Rodney Smith (hamstring) and cornerback K'Waun Williams (concussion).

The healthy scratches are defensive back Pierre Desir and running back Glenn Winston.

Injury
Concussion - Full practice. Probable for Week 8 vs. Oakland
Taylor Gabriel
News
A poor effort by the Browns offensively Sunday against the host Jaguars resulted in fewer minor contributions from bit players.

Among them was fullback Ray Agnew, who caught a three-yard pass on the first play from scrimmage and did nothing but block the rest of the way.

More productive was wide receiver Taylor Gabriel, who snagged three passes for 39 yards despite seven targets.

Jim Dray
News
Several Browns receivers chipped in with catches to aid in their lopsided victory over Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Among them was Week 5 hero Travis Benjamin, who followed that two-touchdown effort by catching one pass for 31 yards and adding a three-yard run. Tight end Jim Dray did the same through the air while wideout Miles Austin added two receptions for 29 yards. Wide receiver Taylor Gabriel pitched in with a catch for 24 yards.

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.
Allen Bradford
News
The Jaguars waived receivers Kenny Shaw and Ramses Barden, guard Antoine Caldwell, linebackers Allen Bradford and Josh Hull, center Patrick Lewis, running back Harvey Unga, cornerback Mike Harris, long snapper Charley Hughlett and safety Joe Young.

They also waived/injured defensive tackle David Carter (knee).

Billy Winn
News
Phil Taylor (knee) and fellow defensive linemen Billy Winn (quad) and Ahtyba Rubin (ankle) headline the list of Browns inactives for Sunday against host Jacksonville. Also hurt are wideout Rodney Smith (hamstring) and cornerback K'Waun Williams (concussion).

The healthy scratches are defensive back Pierre Desir and running back Glenn Winston.

Injury
Quadriceps - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 8 vs. Oakland
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
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.
Jim Leonhard
News
The Browns have listed nine players on the injury report Week 1.

Both Paul McQuistan and John Hughes have been ruled out for the contest. Defensive lineman Desmond Bryant has been listed as doubtful. 

The team did list five players as probable. Cornerbacks Pierre Desir, Joe Haden and Buster Skrine should all be good to go. So will safety Jim Leonhard, linebacker Eric Martin and long-snapper Christian Yount

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
When the Browns made running back Terrance West inactive for Week 6 against Pittsburgh, they seemed to commit to fellow rookie Isaiah Crowell as the backup to Ben Tate. And Crowell's performance in a change-of-pace role seemed to validate their decision. He ran 11 times for 77 yards and a touchdown against the Steelers.

The problem is the Browns then made West active for Week 7 at Jacksonville and gave him nearly as many touches. He had five carries for 8 yards and one catch for no gain while Crowell had seven carries for 18 yards and one catch for 5 yards.

Because both running backs struggled in relief of Tate (who himself wasn't so great), it's not like Crowell lost any ground in the competition, but apparently, it's back to being a competition. So the question remains: If you own Tate, who has had his share of injuries over the years, who should you handcuff to him?

My guess is still Crowell, but because I wouldn't feel confident I had the Browns backfield cornered unless I owned both him and West, I might just opt for neither. Or if dropping Crowell would be too painful, maybe I'd see what he (or maybe both he and Tate) could fetch me on the trade market.

Jabaal Sheard
News
A nagging wrist injury will not prevent Browns outside linebacker Jabaal Sheard from playing Sunday when his team hosts the Ravens. He has been cleared to play after being listed as probable.
A.J. Pataiali'i
News
The Ravens signed quarterback Keith Wenning and defensive tackle A.J. Pataiali'i to their practice squad, reports the Baltimore Sun.
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
Though the Browns offense struggled as a whole Week 7 at Jacksonville, wide receiver Andrew Hawkins made a grand re-entry into the game plan with a season-high 112 yards on five catches. He also led the team with nine targets, giving him at least that many in five of the Browns' six games this season.

Of course, the one time he didn't have that many, he had only two Week 6 against Pittsburgh. Between that game and Week 5 at Tennessee, he had a combined three catches for 26 yards, dropping off the radar in Fantasy after averaging 7.0 caches for 81.3 yards in his first three games.

So now what? Last week, it seemed like an easy call. "Stick a fork in him," my headline read. But clearly, the Browns haven't turned the page on him just yet.

Because he's more of a possession guy in an offense that won't have too many touchdowns through the air, he's still more or less a lost cause in standard leagues. But in points-per-reception leagues, he's at least serviceable. His inconsistencies make him best suited as a bye-week replacement, though.

Gary Barnidge
News
The loss of tight end Jordan Cameron to injury didn't hurt the Browns as much as it could have Sunday against New Orleans - thanks to backup Gary Barnidge.

Barnidge made one of the most critical catches of the game, a 10-yarder into Saints territory with 15 seconds remaining that led to the winning field goal. He finished by snagging all four of his targets for 41 yards. He will seek to further help his team's cause when it plays the Ravens in Week 3.

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
Mike Pettine spoke optimistically Thursday about the possible return to action of Browns defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin on Sunday against visiting Oakland.

Pettine declared that Rubin, who has been sidelined the last two games with an ankle injury, practiced well on Wednesday.

The Browns could certainly use a healthy Rubin. Their defensive line has been decimated by injuries in recent weeks.

Injury
Ankle - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 8 vs. Oakland
Brian Hoyer
News
Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer has expressed both anger over his effort Sunday at Jacksonville and hopefulness that the dud of the team performance will prove to be a positive in the long run.

Hoyer had his worst game with Cleveland, completing just 16 of 41 passes for 215 yards. He also threw an interception, lost a fumble, had four tosses batted down and finished with a career-worst passer rating of 46.3.

"Of all the games I've every played, that's the worst I've ever felt after one, and it's something you have to deal with learning on the job," he told the Akron Beacon Journal. "...For the first time in my career in the NFL, I played a bad game, and it sucks. I take a lot [of blame] on myself, and that's why I probably wasn't too pleasant to be around the past two days."

Hoyer, however, claims that the team could benefit from the 24-6 defeat to a Jaguars team that had been winless entering play. After all, the Browns are preparing to play the 0-6 Raiders in Cleveland on Sunday.

"Maybe it's good we lost last week," he said. "I don't think we underestimated anyone. But I think now we see that no matter who we're playing, we have to be at our best, and there's no excuses and we have to go out and execute."

Desmond Bryant

Browns front seven standouts Desmond Bryant (wrist) and Paul Kruger (back) have been cleared to play in Week 7 at Jacksonville. Both were listed as probable.

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
The Jaguars had been struggling against opposing tight ends this season. But they certainly didn't struggle against Jordan Cameron of the Browns on Sunday.

Coming off a 100-yard performance last week against Pittsburgh, Cameron managed one fourth-quarter snag for five yards. He has just nine catches for 110 yards in the other five games combined.

The Pro Bowler from a year ago will attempt to recapture his 2013 form when the Browns host Oakland in Week 8.

Miles Austin
News
Browns wideout Miles Austin faded in the second half Sunday - just like his team. He snagged a 22-yard pass from Brian Hoyer in the second quarter, but managed just one more catch the rest of the game to finish with three for 53 yards.

Austin, who has yet to rack up more than 54 yards in any game this season, will try to make more of an impact when his team welcomes in the Raiders next Sunday.

John Hughes
News
The Browns have released a Sunday inactive list with only healthy scratches.

The inactives are defensive backs Pierre Desir and Robert Nelson, tight end Gerell Robinson, running back Glenn Winston, defensive linemen Ishmaa'ily Kitchen and John Hughes and wide receiver Rodney Smith.

Karlos Dansby
News
Browns linebacker Karlos Dansby did a little bit of everything in a rare defeat of Pittsburgh on Sunday. He led both teams with 11 tackles, including five solos, registered one of the team's two sacks and added another tackle for a loss.
Rodney Smith
News
Phil Taylor (knee) and fellow defensive linemen Billy Winn (quad) and Ahtyba Rubin (ankle) headline the list of Browns inactives for Sunday against host Jacksonville. Also hurt are wideout Rodney Smith (hamstring) and cornerback K'Waun Williams (concussion).

The healthy scratches are defensive back Pierre Desir and running back Glenn Winston.

Injury
Hamstring - Did not practice. Questionable for Week 8 vs. Oakland
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
Billy Cundiff
News
Browns placekicker Billy Cundiff got his team off on the right foot Sunday with field goals of 40 and 22 yards in the first half, but he was left standing on the sideline for what could have been a boot that would have put his team more than one score ahead.

Cundiff was not called upon late in the second quarter on a 4th-and-1 play that was stopped. Jacksonville went on to score a touchdown and wrest the momentum away from the Browns permanently.

Kevin Cone
News
The Buccaneers announced several roster moves on Monday, via the team's official website. 

The team signed fullback Lonnie Pryor and defensive end George Uko to the practice squad. They also released wide receiver Kevin Cone and running back Jeff Demps.

The Browns waived defensive lineman Jacobbi McDaniel and re-signed tight end Gerell Robinson.

Browns free safety Tashaun Gipson is set to start Sunday at Jacksonville despite a thigh ailment that had him designated as questionable. He had declared himself ready to go on Friday.
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.

That could mean more playing time for rookie first round pick Justin Gilbert, who performed better in Week 6 after losing playing time to poor performance.

Johnny Manziel
News
Browns backup quarterback Johnny Manziel said Friday that he hasn't given much thought to the possibility of emerging starter Brian Hoyer receiving a long-term contract.

Manziel, however, did declare that he's "absolutely" ready to take over the offense if necessary.

"I feel a lot more confident and a lot more comfortable," he said via ESPN.com. "The whole process of being under center a lot more, everything that's involved in this offense, that just wasn't anything I was asked to do at (Texas) A&M. I knew it would take some time."

Hoyer has solidified his standing as the starter with a surprisingly strong start to the season and a 6-2 record in that role with the Browns.
