Adrian Clayborn: Cut loose by Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns released Clayborn on Tuesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

This move provides the Browns roughly $3 million in salary-cap space when the new league year begins March 17. Clayborn played 14 games for the Browns in 2020, averaging 27 defensive snaps per contest and producing 12 tackles, 3.5 sacks and a pass breakup. The 32-year-old defensive end will seek his fourth team in four years.

Browns' Adrian Clayborn: Steps into starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn will start at defensive end Sunday against the Steelers with Olivier Vernon (Achilles) sidelined, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

Vernon will be out indefinitely after rupturing his Achilles during the final game of the regular season, opening up the starting spot. Clayborn filled a rotational role for most of the season and had 12 tackles (six solo), 3.5 sacks and one forced fumble in 15 games. Porter Gustin should also see more playing time for Cleveland.

Browns' Adrian Clayborn: Starting Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn will start at defensive end Sunday against the Jaguars, Zac Jackson of The Athletic reports.

The 32-year-old had 1.5 sacks last week against the Eagles and will make his second start of the season Sunday. Clayborn should have an increased workload with fellow defensive ends Myles Garrett (illness) and Porter Gustin (undisclosed) on the COVID-19 list.

Browns' Adrian Clayborn: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Clayborn sat out Week 4 due to the hip issue and was questionable to play Sunday, but he'll return to the field after the one-game absence. The 32-year-old has four tackles and two sacks in three games this season.

Browns' Adrian Clayborn: May play Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The 32-year-old sat out Week 4 due to the hip injury, but he could return to action Sunday following the one-game absence. Clayborn has four tackles and two sacks in three games this season.

Browns' Adrian Clayborn: Out for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn (hip) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.

Clayborn's next chance to suit up will come Week 5 against the Colts, if he's able to shake his hip injury. With Olivier Vernon (abdomen) considered questionable for Sunday's game, the Browns defensive end corps could be depleted against Dallas.

Browns' Adrian Clayborn: Draws start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn (hip) is active Sunday against the Washington Football Team.

Clayborn logged just one limited practice all week, but it will be enough for him to suit up for the Week 3 contest, where he'll get the start in place of the inactive Olivier Vernon (abdomen).

Browns' Adrian Clayborn: Back at practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn (hip) practiced Friday and is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus Washington, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Clayborn missed the first two days of practice, but he has a chance to play Sunday because he participated in Friday's session. If he's able to suit up, a potential starting opportunity awaits since Olivier Vernon (abdomen) has been ruled out. Clayborn has a sack in each of the first two games this season.

Browns' Adrian Clayborn: Starts week with missed practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn (hip) didn't practice Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Clayborn hurt his hip in last week's win over Cincinnati, which he started due to Olivier Vernon's (abdomen) absence. Vernon was also a no-go at Wednesday's practice, and if neither guy is able to heal up in time for Sunday's game against Washington, the Browns would be shorthanded on the defensive line.

Browns' Adrian Clayborn: Hopes to play through injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn sustained a hip flexor strain during Thursday's win over the Bengals, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Clayborn will get treatment for this injury, and he intends to play through it in Week 3 versus Washington. The Browns have afforded Clayborn a decent role as part of the defense, as he logged 54 percent of the defensive snaps in the season opener. With Olivier Vernon battling an abdomen injury as well, the Browns' depth at DE could be rocky in Week 3 if neither can play.

Browns' Adrian Clayborn: Will not return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn (hip) will not return to Thursday's contest, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Clayborn suffered the injury in the first half and will be unable to return. Look for Porter Gustin and Joe Jackson to receive increased snaps at defensive end for the Browns.

Browns' Adrian Clayborn: Gets hurt Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn (hip) is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Bengals, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

It's unclear how Clayborn suffered the injury, however, he was forced to leave the game in the second quarter. As long as Clayborn is out, look for Porter Gustin and Joe Jackson to see an increase in snaps at defensive end.

Browns' Adrian Clayborn: Records sack in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn had two tackles and one sack in Sunday's 38-6 loss to the Ravens in Week 1.

The highly regarded defensive line had a hard time with Lamar Jackson, as Clayborn was the lone member of the front to get to the quarterback. The 32-year-old is a back-up at defensive end, so Clayborn may not be in a position rack up huge sack totals.

Browns' Adrian Clayborn: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn (groin) returned to practice Saturday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron-Beacon Journal reports.

Clayborn missed the last four days of practice but returns in time for the final days of training camp. After Saturday's light session, Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski will move the troops to FirstEnergy Stadium on Sunday before Monday's off day. After that, the club enters regular-season mode in the build-up to the season opener Sept. 13 against the Ravens.

Browns' Adrian Clayborn: Nursing groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn (groin) didn't participate in Tuesday's practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Clayborn dealt with knee, back and groin injuries in 2019 but still played 15 games for the Falcons and averaged 29.7 defensive snaps per contest. Even if the 32-year-old defensive end gets healthy for Week 1, he's missing valuable training camp reps that are necessary to secure consistent playing time right away.

Browns' Adrian Clayborn: Inks deal with Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn (knee) signed a two-year contract with the Browns on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Clayborn heads over from Atlanta, where he produced 18 tackles (12 solo) and four sacks across 15 games this past season. The 31-year-old will most likely be deployed in a rotational role for the Browns during the 2020 season.

Falcons' Adrian Clayborn: Four sacks during 2019 campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn accumulated 18 tackles, four tackles for loss, seven QB hits, four sacks and two forced fumbles across 15 appearances for Atlanta in 2019.

The veteran edge rusher had a sparse output in the tackle column despite fielding an average of 29.3 defensive snaps per game, but he continues to be a formidable pocket disrupter for the Red and Black. Clayborn endured an underwhelming 2.5-sack campaign during a one-year stint with New England in 2018, but he's collected 13.5 combined sacks during his past two seasons with Atlanta between 2017 and 2019. The 31-year-old becomes an unrestricted free agent when his contract expires in March, and it remains to be seen if the cash-strapped Falcons will possess sufficient financial flexibility to bring him back for a fifth season with the club.

Falcons' Adrian Clayborn: Ruled out for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Buccaneers, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.

Clayborn is set to miss his first game of the year due to a knee issue. In the veteran defensive end's stead, John Cominsky is a candidate to handle additional defensive snaps. Clayborn logged 18 tackles (12 solo), four sacks and two forced fumbles across 15 contests in 2019.

Falcons' Adrian Clayborn: Not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn (knee) was listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's estimated practice report.

Clayborn must have picked up some sort of knee injury during last weekend's victory over the Jaguars, in which the defensive end recorded one tackle over 35 defensive snaps. It's premature to be concerned over a missed practice this early in the week, but Clayborn will probably need to return to practice Thursday or Friday in order to suit up for this weekend's finale in Tampa.

Falcons' Adrian Clayborn: No injury status for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn (back) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Clayborn played a season-high 47 snaps in Week 14 before being limited with a back issue this week. He'll be back in the rotation Sunday.
