Browns' E.J. Gaines: Not expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (knee) is unlikely to suit up for Sunday's season opener against the Steelers, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Gaines was able to participate in individual drills Thursday, but he hasn't practiced without limitations since suffering a knee sprain over two weeks ago. Gaines is not expected to remain sidelined for an extended period of time, but it seems unlikely that the 26-year-old will play at all on Sunday.

Browns' E.J. Gaines: New contract worth $4 million
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines' deal with the Browns is a one-year contract worth $4 million, Mary Kay Cabot of reports.

Gaines signed with the Browns on Friday but the terms of his contract weren't immediately known. Now that they are, it's clear Cleveland views him as a starter in defensive coordinator Gregg Williams' up-and-coming defensive unit. Playing under Williams while both were with the Rams from 2014 to 2016, Gaines totaled 126 tackles, 21 pass breakups and two interceptions over 26 games.

Browns' E.J. Gaines: Signs with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines signed a contract with the Browns on Friday, Andrew Gribble of the team's official site reports.

Gaines is a solid addition to the Brown's new-look secondary and will reunite with defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who coached Gaines while both were with the Rams from 2014 to 2016. The terms of his contract aren't clear, though he'll presumably slot in as a starter opposite Jamar Taylor, with Jabrill Peppers and Damarious Randall providing help at safety. In 11 games for the Bills last season, Gaines logged 59 tackles, three forced fumbles and a pick.

Bills' E.J. Gaines: Expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Sean McDermott said Thursday that Gaines (knee) "looks like he's ready to go" for Sunday's season finale in Miami, Mike Rodak of reports.

Gaines injured his knee against the Dolphins two weeks ago during their first matchup of the season and subsequently wasn't available for the Bills' Week 16 game in New England. However, after full participation in practice Thursday, he indeed seems set to make a return.

Bills' E.J. Gaines: Returns on limited basis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines, who missed Sunday's loss to the Patriots due to a knee injury, returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

The Bills struggled without Gaines in Week 16, as his replacement in the lineup, Shareece Wright, exited after suffering a concussion. Leonard Johnson entered the contest in place of Wright and had a hard time keeping up with the Patriots' aerial attack. Gaines' potential return for the season finale against the Dolphins would be an important development with the Bills' playoff hopes on the line.
