Orchard (groin) fully participated in practice Friday.
Orchard was limited on Wednesday and Thursday but should be ready to go for Sunday's matchup with Pittsburgh. The 24-year-old will likely have in increased role in Cleveland's defense with first-overall pick Myles Garrett (ankle) sidelined for at least a couple weeks.
Orchard (groin) was limited during Thursday's practice.
With dynamic edge rusher Myles Garrett (ankle) sidelined for at least the next two weeks, the Browns will expect Orchard to take on a bigger role on the defensive line. However, he hasn't been able to practice at full capacity since injuring his groin, although he has returned in a limited fashion the past two days, which brings optimism for his Week 1 status.
Orchard (groin) returned to practice in a limited fashion Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Orchard could be called upon for a serious role sooner than expected since Myles Garrett left Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury that the Browns fear could keep him out for weeks. However, there's no definitive ruling on Orchard or Garrett, but this is definitely a pair to keep an eye on.

After sitting out the team's second preseason game and missing subsequent practices with a groin injury, it seems unlikely Orchard will be healthy enough suit up Saturday versus the Buccaneers. The defensive end is in competition for a roster spot but is missing valuable time to showcase his talent.
Orchard will sit out Monday's exhibition with the Giants due to a groin injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Orchard tallied two tackles and a half sack in the team's first preseason game. It's unclear if he sustained the groin injury during that contest or in a recent practice, but either way, he'll be unavailable Monday. The 24-year-old is looking to secure a spot on the final roster, so his quick return to practice will be essential to those efforts.
