Don Jones
News
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.

Xavier Cooper
News
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
News
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."

Mike Matthews
No Updates
Danny Shelton
News
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
News
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.

Justin Tuggle
News
The Texans released a lengthy injury report that included 16 players leading up to Week 12 against Cincinnati. 13 of the 16 players on the list were deemed probable.

Kareem Jackson (knee) was the only player ruled out, while Arian Foster (groin) and Max Bullough (hamstring) were deemed questionable.

The following players were ruled as probable for Sunday: Tyson Clabo (foot), Jadeveon Clowney (knee), Brian Cushing (knee), Akeem Dent (neck), Jonathan Grimes (ankle), Andre Johnson (rest), Johnathan Joseph (knee), Ryan Mallett (chest), Whitney Mercilus (knee), Mike Mohamed (hip), Darryl Morris (ankle), Jeff Tarpinian (knee) and Justin Tuggle (shoulder).

Duke Johnson
News
Johnson (head) gained 22 yards on three carries and nine yards on one reception (one target) in Friday's preseason game against Tampa Bay.

Though efficient with his touches, Johnson was essentially limited to obvious passing downs with the first-team offense, while Isaiah Crowell handled the bulk of the rushing workload. The split isn't exactly surprising, but there had been some thought that Johnson could push for more early-down work in his second season. Not that it's totally out of the question, but Browns head coach Hue Jackson does seem to to heavily favor Crowell as a rusher.

Terrelle Pryor
News
Pryor caught two passes for 15 yards on four targets during Friday's loss to the Buccaneers.

Pryor was relatively quiet with just two catches Friday, but the Browns only completed 19 passes for the game as Robert Griffin was repeatedly under pressure (five sacks). The athletic wideout has proven that he's capable of making big-time plays by previously connecting with Griffin for a couple of receptions for over 45 yards during Cleveland's first two preseason games. The potential is there. As of now, Pryor is listed as the team's starting wide receiver alongside Corey Coleman, but if he fails to produce in the first few games, he could easily be replaced by Josh Gordon when he returns from his four-game suspension.

Travis Coons
News
Coons was waived by the Browns, the team announced on Monday.

Coons was been battling with kicker Patrick Murray this preseason, and coming off a season where he hit 28-of-32 attempts overall, it seemed like Coons was slated to be the team's starting kicker once again. However, it looks like the team will go with Murray, leaving Coons for hire on the NFL market right now.

Glenn Winston
News
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.

Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Scooby Wright
No Updates
Paul Kruger
News
Kruger was cut by the Browns on Monday, Cleveland.com reports.

Kruger signed a five-year, $40.5 million contract with the Browns in 2013, but after posting 15.5 sacks through his first two seasons in Cleveland, he managed just 2.5 and 27 tackles last year. The 30-year-old also fell short of expectations during the preseason, so the Browns have opted to provide younger players like Emmanuel Ogbah, Carl Nassib and Joe Schubert bigger opportunities by releasing the veteran Kruger.

Garth Gerhart
News
The following players have been deemed inactive for the Packers in Sunday's NFC Championship Game: DuJuan Harris, Demetri Goodson, Carl Bradford, Garth Gerhart, Justin Perillo, Jeff Janis and Bruce Gatson.

The Packers are currently 8-point underdogs against the Seahawks Sunday.

Demario Davis
News
Davis has signed a two-year deal with the Browns worth $8 million, the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports.

Davis figures to compete for a starting job at inside linebacker with the Browns, along with Chris Kirksey and Karlos Dansby. The 27-year-old Davis, who should bolster the Browns' run defense in 2016, recorded 90 tackle sand two sacks in 16 starts for the Jets this past season.

Jamar Taylor
News
Taylor is operating with the Browns' starting defense ahead of CB Tramon Williams, Cleveland.com reports.

Complicating matters is that Williams is currently nursing a toe injury, but it is not expected to be serious. Taylor, on the other hand, has impressed coaches of late with his aggressive play, especially HC Jim Caldwell. However, given the timing of Taylor's recent ascension, his place atop the depth chart may ultimately have more to do with the Browns' curiosity in his ability to operate with a starting-caliber unit than anything else; the third preseason game usually serves as a dress rehearsal for most NFL teams in preparation for the regular season. Or, in other words, the Browns may simply know what they have in Williams, an eleven-year veteran, and would rather get a deeper grasp of what Taylor brings to the table during the team's final chance to play their best players in the preseason. Ultimately, though, it is Williams who projects to end up as the starting corner opposite Joe Haden come Week 1.

Jason Neill
No Updates
Josh McCown
News
McCown completed just six of 11 passes for 65 yards against Tampa Bay on Friday.

Like Robert Griffin, McCown was under for duress most of Friday night, which contributed to his poor accuracy, and ended up getting sacked twice. Granted, Joe Thomas wasn't in the game when McCown took over for Griffin, but Cleveland's offensive line is something to watch during the regular season. If Griffin suffers an injury and is forced to miss time, McCown would be a decent fantasy option, as he's already proven he's a capable starting QB.

Mikell Everette
No Updates
Josh Gordon
News
Gordon (suspension) caught two passes for 87 yards and a touchdown (two targets) in Friday's preseason game against the Buccaneers.

According to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal, Terrelle Pryor and Corey Coleman (hamstring) technically got the start, with Gordon then replacing the rookie for the second offensive snap. All three wideouts, along with Andrew Hawkins, ended up getting plenty of first-team work, but it was Gordon who clearly left the best impression. The 25-year-old snuck behind Brent Grimes on a double move to pick up 44 yards on the opening drive, then later outleapt Grimes for a 43-yard touchdown shortly before halftime. Gordon's lack of involvement in the time between might normally seem a bit concerning, but the Cleveland offense simply couldn't get anything going, with Robert Griffin ultimately taking five sacks on 19 dropbacks. Whatever issues the Browns offense might still need to work out, Gordon's first on-field appearance since 2014 left little doubt that his elite athleticism is in tact. He should emerge as Griffin's favorite target upon completion of his four-game suspension, though it is possible the Browns quarterback will develop chemistry with Coleman, Pryor and TE Gary Barnidge in the meantime.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 5 vs. New England
Charley Hughlett
News
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
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. 
Kenton Adeyemi
No Updates
Josh Boyce
News
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.

Justin Gilbert
News
Browns cornerback Justin Gilbert (hamstring) is active for the first time this season Sunday against the Raiders.

With K'Waun Williams on the shelf due to a concussion, Gilbert will take the field to provide the team with depth in the secondary. He has a seemingly good chance of seeing a noteworthy amount of snaps, especially in dime packages and other passing situations.

Chris Kirksey
News
Kirksey had eight total tackles in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

Kirksey had five solo tackles and three assisted tackles in Sunday's loss to the Rams. This puts him at 37 total tackles for the season, making him Cleveland's third leading tackler. Should he keep up his solid production, Kirksey is at very least worth a look in many fantasy leagues.

Cameron Erving
News
Browns rookie offensive lineman Cameron Erving has a lot of potential. The team recognized that and selected him with the 19th pick in this year's draft, but he's also receiving high praise from another first-round pick, per the team website.

Erving, who played at Florida State, is highly touted by former teammate and top-overall pick Jameis Winston.

“Not only was he my center, but he was my blindside as well,” said Winston at the NFC Rookie Symposium Play 60 event in Berea. “He’s a great player. He works hard. He is very excited to be (in Cleveland). I was FaceTiming the other day. He’s such a great person. I thank God every day he was protecting me at Florida State.

“Cam’s just a versatile player. He wanted to be able to show all of his talents. I think he played a big role, we had some young guys step up and he played a big role (in their development).”

Injury
Ankle - Probable for Week 1 at Philadelphia
Jordan Payton
News
The Browns selected Payton in the 2016 NFL Draft, 154th overall.

The UCLA product led the Bruins in receptions and receiving yards in each of his last two seasons on campus, combining for 145 catches and 2,060 yards in that span. He has more speed than one would guess on tape given his thick frame, but he was able to run a 4.47 40-yard dash at the Combine. Payton does have some trouble reaching that maximum speed off the line, however, which could be a problem against NFL level press coverage. In all, he does fit a need for the Browns in that he offers some size and ability to work the intermediate routes opposite speed demon Corey Coleman.

Nick Hayden
News
Hayden has signed with the Browns.

Hayden spent the past three seasons with the Cowboys, averaging over 43 tackles during his time in Dallas. Entering his eighth season, Hayden figures to add depth and experience to the Browns' interior defensive line.

Ed Eagan
No Updates
E.J. Bibbs
News
Bibbs (heat issue) practiced Friday after leaving Thursday's session early, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Bibbs absence was just a one day occurrence, as expected. Now that he's rested and rehydrated he should be fully healthy entering Friday's training camp session.

Tramon Williams
News
Williams left Wednesday's practice early with a toe injury, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

In his last nine seasons, the durable Williams has only missed two games. It's unusual to see a player of his toughness have to leave the playing field, but knowing his track record it would be a bit of a shock if he was to miss any regular season action. However, foot and toe injuries can often linger, so it is important to see how Williams feels throughout the remainder of the week.

Injury
Toe - Probable for Week 1 at Philadelphia
Robert Griffin III
News
Griffin completed eight of 14 passes for 119 yards and a touchdown, adding one carry for four yards, in Friday's preseason game against Tampa Bay.

Although the stat line doesn't look too bad, Cleveland's first-team offense had an ugly evening, with Griffin taking five sacks on 19 dropbacks. The only real highlights were a pair of deep completions to Josh Gordon (suspension), with the first going for a 44-yard gain on the opening drive, and the second for a 43-yard touchdown shortly before halftime. The touchdown was thrown directly into coverage, allowing Gordon to come back on the ball and use his massive size advantage over Bucs CB Brent Grimes. While Gordon's strong effort was encouraging for the Cleveland offense, first-round selection Corey Coleman failed to impress, held without a catch on two targets. There isn't a shortage of talent, but the Browns offense is clearly still a work in progress, with the process made more difficult by a slew of nagging injuries and Gordon's impending four-game suspension.

Darius Jennings
News
Jennings, who caught six passes on 10 targets for 45 yards in Sunday's loss to the Steelers, finished the season with 14 catches for 117 yards.

Jennings was promoted from Cleveland's practice squad in early December, taking advantage of the opportunity provided by the placement of Brian Hartline (collarbone) and Andrew Hawkins (concussion) on IR. He was active for four total games and targeted in three, proving useful at a depleted slot position. The Browns will presumably add other wide receiver options during the draft, and that will factor in to whether or not Jennings is brought back in 2016.

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.

Chigbo Anunoby
News
The Titans dumped 20 players Saturday to pare their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

Tennessee cut the following players: T Jeff Adams, CB Ri'Shard Anderson, RB Antonio Andrews, DL Chigbo Anunoby, K Maikon Bonani, CB Tommie Campbell, TE Chase Coffman, LB Brandon Copeland, QB Dominique Davis, DE Marcus Dixon, LB Moise Fokou, WR Marc Mariani, G Justin McCray, FB Collin Mooney, OL Eric Olsen, T William Poehls, WR Rico Richardson, WR Brian Robiskie, TE Jason Schepler and CB Winston Wright.
Nile Lawrence-Stample
News
Lawrence-Stample was forced to leave practice after sustaining a shoulder injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Lawrence-Stample is an undrafted rookie fighting to make the roster. It's unclear what exactly happened to his shoulder or how serious it is. his first opportunity to return to practice will be on Friday. In his absence, Kyle Rose appears to be in line for a few extra reps.

Injury
Shoulder - Probable for Week 1 at Philadelphia
Eric Patterson
News
The Patriots have announced the release of rookie cornerback Eric Patterson one day after signing veteran Derek Cox.

Patterson was signed May 8 as an undrafted free agent. He had been participating in OTAs.

Charles Gaines
News
The Browns signed quarterback Austin Davis and placed cornerback Charles Gaines on injured reserve on Monday, per Ohio.com.

Davis was cut by the Rams earlier this week. Gaines will be eligible to return to practice in Week 6 and play in Week 8.

K'Waun Williams
News
Williams will need surgery to remove bone spurs in his right foot, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The Browns recently suspended Williams for two games due to his recent absences from the team. It appears the Browns didn't believe Williams should have been away from the team when he was, thus bringing about the suspension. However, after seeing a specialist, Williams has been told he'll need surgery for bone spurs in his right foot, seemingly validating his recent actions. He plans to appeal the suspension in the near future, so we'll likely here more details in the coming few weeks. Williams has yet to provide a specific date for surgery.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 3 at Miami
Carl Nassib
News
With Desmond Bryant out 4-to-6 months with a torn pectoral muscle, Nassib has a chance to be an immediate starter at left defensive end.

Nassib was drafted 65th overall by the Browns in the 2016 NFL Draft, and has a chance to start right away. While this may be developing Nassib more quickly than the Browns would like, he'll get immediate starting experience and an opportunity to show his worth.

Taylor Gabriel
News
Gabriel caught six passes for 60 yards on nine targets during Friday's preseason loss to Tampa Bay.

After not showing up in the box score during Cleveland's first two preseason games, Gabriel burst onto the scene with a big performance against the Buccaneers. The 25-year-old is currently listed as the team's No. 3 wideout, but Dan Labbe of Cleveland.com wonders if he'll eventually displace Andrew Hawkins on the depth chart. Gabriel did outplay Hawkins on Thursday, as he had just one catch, so it will be interesting to see what Cleveland's depth chart looks like before its next preseason game on Sept. 1.

Rannell Hall
News
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.

Armonty Bryant
News
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.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 5 vs. New England
Ricardo Louis
News
Louis (hamstring) returned to practice on Monday, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

Louis suffered a hamstring injury over two weeks ago but now returns to the field just a week before the regular season gets underway. The Eagles have not commented on if the wideout will play in Thursday's preseason finale or not, but look for updates to come as the week goes on. Louis is competing with a plethora of receivers, including Taylor Gabriel, Marlon Moore, and Andrew Hawkins, for a spot on the 53-man roster.

Hamstring - Questionable for Week 1 at Philadelphia

Randall Telfer
News
Telfer was targeted once but went without a catch during Friday's loss against the Buccaneers.

Telfer was recently supplanted by Connor Hamlett as Cleveland's backup tight end, and the 24-year-old did little to take his spot back on Friday. Telfer has been more productive in the preseason, but the Browns' coaching staff must've seen something they liked more in Hamlett. Gary Barnidge will get the most playing time and the majority of Robert Griffin's attention, so seeing the field as the third tight end might prove difficult.

Joe Haden
News
Haden (ankle) registered one tackle during his preseason debut Friday against the Buccaneers.

The Browns welcomed a healthy Haden back to a defense that was in dire need of play-makers, but his return failed to make an impact, as the Buccaneers put up 30 points Friday -- 27 of which came in the first half. He appeared in just five games in 2015 but should continue to be one of the league's best defensive backs if his health doesn't betray him.

Injury
Ankle - Probable for Week 1 at Philadelphia
Joe Schobert
News
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
News
Taylor Gabriel could push Hawkins for a roster spot, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Hawkins has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career, and the Browns seem to envision Josh Gordon (suspension), Corey Coleman and Terrelle Pryor as their wideout trio of the future. If Hawkins would merely be the No. 4 receiver once Gordon returns from a four-game suspension, it might make sense for the Browns to go with a younger, cheaper option. The team probably wants to keep fourth-round rookie Ricardo Louis (hamstring) and fifth-round rookie Rashard Higgins, even if neither figures to contribute from the outset. 25-year-old Taylor Gabriel represents the middle ground, offering enough experience (64 career catches) to immediately step in as the No. 3/4 wide receiver.

Gary Barnidge
News
Barnidge caught two passes for six yards on three targets in Friday's preseason game against the Buccaneers.

Plagued by a minor abdomen injury early in training camp, Barnidge has safely proved his healthy by playing in each of Cleveland's three preseason games. Josh Gordon (suspension) stole the show Friday night, but with the uber-talented wideout not available until Week 5, it won't come as any surprise if Barnidge serves as Robert Griffin's go-to target early in the season.

Raheem Mostert
News
Mostert (hamstring) is unlikely to play Friday against Tampa Bay, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The speedster out of Purdue has been slowed by a hamstring injury of late and will not take the field for Friday's contest in all likelihood. His absence will be primarily felt on special teams Friday, but reserves such as Glenn Winston, Rajion Neal, and Jahwan Edwards could all see some carries in the second half as well with Mostert sitting.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 1 at Philadelphia
Dylan Wynn
News
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.

Injury
Ankle - Injured Reserve
Patrick Murray
News
Murray will be the starting kicker after Travis Coons was waived Monday, Ohio.com reports.

Even though he hasn't attempted a field goal since his rookie season in 2014, Murray was able to dethrone incumbent kicker Travis Coons with a strong training camp and preseason. It remains to be seen how valuable Murray will be fantasy-wise, as most of that depends on how well Robert Griffin and the offense are able to move the ball.

Rajion Neal
News
The Packers have placed wide receiver Jared Abbrederis, offensive lineman Don Barclay, running back Rajion Neal, nose tackle B.J. Raji, linebacker Joe Thomas and guard Andrew Tiller on injured reserve, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Desmond Bryant
News
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.

Injury
Chest - Out for Week 1 at Philadelphia
Trey Caldwell
News
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.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 1 at Philadelphia
Jamie Meder
News
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
News
Crowell gained 39 yards on eight carries in Friday's preseason loss to Tampa Bay.

Crowell dominated early-down work on the first-team offense, with Duke Johnson mostly only playing on passing downs. While Johnson could eventually be a threat to mix in more often, the Browns' preseason gameplans suggest that Crowell will start the year handling the bulk of the rushing workload.

John Hughes
News
Hughes (personal) rejoined the Browns on Tuesday, the Akron Beacon Journal reports. "I'm back 100 percent now," he stated.

Since Hughes had been absent due to a family matter for over two weeks, the Browns opted to let him watch Tuesday's practice from the sidelines and professed they will ease him back into action. Hughes should be full-tilt before long, though, and should also be able to reclaim his starting defensive role from free-agent acquiree Nick Hayden, especially with Desmond Bryant (pectoral) done for the year.

Andy Lee
News
The Browns have traded their seventh-round pick in 2017 to the 49ers for three-time Pro Bowl punter Andy Lee, the team announced on Saturday.

The team sent their seventh-round pick to the 49ers in order to secure Lee. In a corresponding move, the Browns released punter Spencer Lanning to make room on the roster for Lee.

“We’ve said all along that we are going to be deliberate in our pursuit to acquire talent that we feel can improve our roster,” Browns general manager Ray Farmer said. “Andy Lee has consistently been a top punter in this league. We are excited to be able to add a punter of his caliber to our team.

“We wish Spencer the best. He has done a solid job for our team and has also been an outstanding representative for our organization off the field.”

Lee has averaged at least 46.2 yards per punt in every season since 2007, peaking at 50.9 in 2011. He had served in that capacity with San Francisco for the last 11 years, but the team used a fifth-round selection in the 2015 draft to take Clemson punter Bradley Pinion, signaling the end of Lee's tenure with the 49ers.

“I'm excited about my new start and becoming a member of the Cleveland Browns,” Lee said. “I've heard so many good things about the city of Cleveland and the loyalty and passion of the fans from my former teammate Phil Dawson. I've also heard some very positive things about the type of organization and team the Browns are building so my family and I are very much looking forward to becoming a part of it.”

Austin Davis
News
Davis was waived by the Browns, the team announced on Monday.

After a concussion stunted his involvement during the preseason, Davis found himself on the bottom of the Browns' quarterback depth chart. Davis has shown flashes of being a solid NFL quarterback, but potential injury concerns may leave him off a team's roster before the start of the season.

Terrell Watson
News
Watson rushed for nine yards on five carries during Friday's loss to Tampa Bay.

With Raheem Mostert (hamstring) on the sideline, Watson had a shot at proving he deserved to be the Browns' No. 3 running back, but after an underwhelming performance, the depth chart is unlikely to be altered. The 23-year-old has rushed for 52 yards on 14 carries so far this preseason, but it might not be enough to make the final roster.

Cam Johnson
News
Colts linebacker Cam Johnson, an exclusive rights free agent, re-signed with the team for one year, reports RTV6 in Indianapolis. He suffered a season-ending triceps injury in the 2014 opener after playing in 12 games the year before.
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.

Malcolm Johnson
News
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
News
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.

Sean Baker
News
The Falcons have signed safety Sean Baker to the practice squad. Baker was waived from the active roster earlier in the week.
Seth Devalve
News
DeValve has been placed on the active/PUP list.

The rookie tight end will begin his first training camp on the sidelines as he nurses a hamstring injury. The timetable for the injury is still unknown.

Injury
Hamstring - Probable for Week 1 at Philadelphia
Robert Hughes
News
The Cardinals have released Hughes.

With their offseason training program kicking off this week, the Cardinals elected to open a pair of roster spots by releasing both Hughes and fellow RB Marion Grice. Both players had spent time on the Cardinals' practice squad this past season, but never appeared in a game. Going forward, Hughes will presumably be on the lookout for a team needing an extra body as training camp nears.

Spencer Drango
No Updates
Corey Coleman
News
Coleman (hamstring) drew two targets but did not have any reception in Friday's preseason game against the Buccaneers.

Making his NFL debut, Coleman got the start alongside Terrelle Pryor, but Josh Gordon (suspension) then replaced the rookie for Cleveland's second offensive snap, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal. All three got plenty of first-team snaps, with Gordon catching both of his targets for 87 yards and a touchdown, while Pryor had two receptions for just 15 yards on four targets. Despite the quiet performance, Coleman should have a chance to become one of Robert Griffin's favorite targets while Gordon serves a four-game suspension to start the season. Coleman and Pryor will presumably start outside, with Andrew Hawkins manning the slot in three-wide formations. Depending on how things play out, either Coleman or Pryor will likely cede a starting spot to Gordon in Week 5.

J.P. Holtz

Connor Hamlett
News
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
News
Kessler completed five of six passes for 27 yards during Friday's loss against the Buccaneers.

Most of Kessler's throws went for short yardage with his longest completion going for seven yards. The QB out of USC is entering his first season and doesn't figure to get much playing time out of the gate. The 23-year-old is listed as Cleveland's third-string QB, and that probably won't change unless Robert Griffin and/or Josh McCown suffers an injury.

Ibraheim Campbell
News
The Browns signed fourth-round draft pick Ibraheim Campbell , a safety out of Northwestern. The deal was a reported $2.79 million salary with a $512,010 signing bonus, per Ohio.com.

That leaves Miami running back Duke Johnson , the Browns' third-round pick, as the only one of their twelve draft picks that is still unsigned. 

Austin Pasztor
News
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
News
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.''

Emmanuel Ogbah
News
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.

Kaleb Johnson

Pierre Desir
News
Desir is inactive Monday against the Ravens.

As a result, Justin Gilbert will draw the start at left cornerback for the Browns in place of Desir on Monday.

Derrick Kindred
News
The Browns selected Kindred in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 132nd overall.

Kindred (5-foot-10, 207 pounds) was a leading contributor on a tough TCU defense the last two years, and he tested above the average at the Combine by running a 4.50-second 40-yard dash and adding 37.5-inch vertical and 123-inch broad jumps. In a thin Cleveland safety rotation, Kindred could push for a starting role early on as a rookie.

Dan France
News
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.

Marlon Moore
News
Moore is nursing a hip pointer and was seen on an exercise bike at practice on Monday, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

The severity of the injury is unknown but Moore is in danger of missing the preseason finale against the Bears on Thursday. The veteran wideout is fighting for a spot on the receiver depth chart among a group of 13 wideouts. His relatively quiet preseason combined with this new injury certainly don't help his chances of making it past the roster cut.

Injury
Hip - Questionable for Week 1 at Philadelphia
Tracy Howard

Rashard Higgins
News
Higgins was targeted twice but failed to haul in a catch against the Buccaneers on Friday.

Higgins is currenty listed as the fourth-string wide receiver for Corey Coleman's spot, and he did little to improve on that versus Tampa Bay. A fifth-round pick out of Colorado St., Higgins has failed to make much of an impact so far this preseason, hauling in just two catches for 20 yards, although one did go for a score. Cleveland has good depth at wide receiver, so Higgins playing time looks to be scarce.

Rahim Moore
News
Moore was found to not have a concussion after leaving Thursday's game early and being tested for one, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Moore left after taking a big hit in the third quarter, but he'll be able to practice in full and shouldn't be held back at all now that he's been found to not have a concussion. Moore had been playing with the second team defense and figures to stay in that spot going forward.
