  • Browns' Michael Woods: Has suspension lifted

    Woods (Achilles) had his suspension lifted by the NFL on Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Woods was given a six-game suspension in early December for violating the league's personal conduct policy, and he's now served his punishment for the required number of contests. The ban didn't impact his ability to take the field, as the wideout ruptured his Achilles in early April and was consequently ruled out for the season. Woods will look to be healthy enough to participate in training camp this summer.

  • Browns' Michael Woods: Gets six-game ban

    Woods (Achilles) was handed a six-game suspension Friday for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.

    While taking part in an offseason workout with quarterback Deshaun Watson (shoulder) in April, Woods suffered a ruptured Achilles, so he already was out for the season. Now, Woods won't get a paycheck for the final six games of the campaign following the suspension. Considering the timing of the injury, the 2022 sixth-round pick may be healthy by the start of the 2024 offseason program, with five catches (on 10 targets) for 45 yards in 10 career appearances to date.

  • Browns' Michael Woods: Shifts to different list

    Woods (Achilles) was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list Tuesday.

    Woods was previously on the active/NFI list, but with no chance of returning in 2023 due to a ruptured Achilles, the move makes sense. The 2022 sixth-round selection will continue to focus on his recovery and making a healthy return in 2024.

  • Browns' Michael Woods: Placed on active/NFI list

    Woods (Achilles) was placed on the active/non-football injury list by the Browns on Friday.

    Woods suffered a ruptured Achilles in April while working out with quarterback Deshaun Watson, and he's expected to miss the entirety of the 2023 campaign. The wide receiver will likely transition to injured reserve at some point leading up to the regular season.

  • Browns' Michael Woods: Diagnosed with ruptured Achilles

    Woods has been diagnosed with a ruptured Achilles and will likely miss the entire 2023 campaign after undergoing surgery, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Woods suffered the injury during an offseason workout with Deshaun Watson. As a rookie last year, the sixth-round pick caught five of 10 targets for 45 yards across 10 appearances (144 offensive snaps). The injury has little impact on Cleveland's targeting depth chart. The Browns fortified their receiving corps with the additions Elijah Moore, Marquise Goodwin and Jordan Akins.

  • Browns' Michael Woods: May have suffered serious injury

    The Browns are concerned that Woods may have suffered a torn Achilles during workouts with quarterback Deshaun Watson, Josina Anderson of CBS Sports reports.

    Woods, a 2022 sixth-round pick, suited up for 10 games as a rookie and secured five of 10 targets for 45 yards. It would be a brutal turn of events if he's indeed suffered a torn Achilles during early offseason personal workouts, as that would jeopardize his availability for the entire 2023 campaign. It sounds like Cleveland will have an official update on the severity of Woods' injury after further testing Tuesday.

  • Browns' Michael Woods: Catches lone target in finale

    Woods caught his only target for 15 yards in a 28-14 loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday.

    Woods was a bit player for much of his rookie season, sitting out on several occasions early in the campaign as a healthy inactive before seeing an uptick in playing time down the stretch while David Bell and Anthony Schwartz missed time with injuries. All of the Browns' primary wide receivers are under contract for 2023, so Woods' fantasy outlook may not improve much during his second season. He finished the 2022 season with five catches for 45 yards on 10 targets.

  • Browns' Michael Woods: Steps in for Bell

    Woods caught one of two targets for four yards and carried once for minus-5 yards in Saturday's 13-3 win over Baltimore in Week 15.

    Woods was the primary beneficiary of David Bell's thumb injury and Anthony Schwartz's concussion. He played a season-high 41 snaps and had just his third reception. The Browns also used Daylen Baldwin as a third wideout; he caught two passes and was on the field for 12 snaps.

    Woods (illness) was listed as a full participant on the Browns' injury report Thursday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
