Texans' Phillip Gaines: Re-ups with Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (ankle) signed a one-year contract with the Texans on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Gaines suffered a season-ending ankle injury at the end of October, but appears on track to be healthy for the start of training camp. Given the contract is a veteran's minimum, there's no guarantee the 2014 third-round pick of the Chiefs will be a part of the team's roster when the 2020 campaign kicks off.

Texans' Phillip Gaines: Heading for surgery and IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines will undergo surgery on his left ankle and be placed on injured reserve, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Gaines suffered a severe high-ankle sprain during Sunday's loss to the Colts, and he'll face a five-month recovery after undergoing surgery. The 28-year-old joined the Texans on a one-year deal after Week 1 and had 13 tackles (12 solo) and two passes defensed in six games. The team acquired Gareon Conley from the Raiders to bolster their depth at cornerback.

Texans' Phillip Gaines: Seen on crutches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (ankle) was seen on crutches following Sunday's game against the Colts, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports.

Gaines was on the wrong end of a hit from a teammate when he bent back on his ankle late in the fourth quarter. He subsequently was carted off the field and, as evidenced by this news, seems to be exercising some caution with the injury. It's likely the team will have more news surrounding the specifics of the injury in the coming days.

Texans' Phillip Gaines: Carted off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines left Sunday's game against the Colts and won't return due to a left ankle injury.

Gaines was on the wrong end of friendly fire, when he was hit hard by a teammate and hurt his ankle. He was in significant pain and was carted off the field late in the fourth quarter. Gaines presumably won't return to the game with a minute left, and it's likely the team will comment on the specifics of the injury following the game or in the coming days.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Browns' Phillip Gaines: Returns to practice field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (neck) is participating at practice Monday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Gaines was unable to practice Saturday due to the neck issue, but his quick return to action indicates it was a minor injury. The 28-year-old re-signed with the Browns in March and is poised for a depth role in the secondary, assuming he cracks the 53-man roster.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines was sidelined during Saturday's practice with a neck injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

It's unclear how serious the injury is or how long Gaines will be sidelined. If the 28-year-old can stay healthy and stick to Cleveland's roster, he figures to see a depth role in the Browns' secondary.

Browns' Phillip Gaines: Full go Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Gaines has missed the last three games. He logged full practices before Week 16's game but was still ruled inactive at game time. His depth could come in handy if Denzel Ward (concussion) is forced to sit out again. Gaines has 30 tackles and two pass breakups this year.

Browns' Phillip Gaines: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Gaines has missed the last two games due to a knee injury, but he now appears to be nearing a return to full health. If the fifth-year pro is able to suit up against the Bengals on Sunday, he'll likely resume his usual rotational workload.

Browns' Phillip Gaines: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (knee) is inactive for Saturday's game against the Broncos.

Browns' Phillip Gaines: Officially listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (knee) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Broncos, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Gaines sat out last week's win over the Panthers due to a knee injury, has been a limited participant in practice all week. If the rotational cornerback is able to suit up against the Broncos, he could be in line for an uptick in snaps with Denzel Ward (Concussion) ruled out.

Browns' Phillip Gaines: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Gaines began the week not practicing but was able to show enough the last two days to earn the questionable tag. The 27-year-old has a chance for an expanded workload Sunday should he be able to suit up with Denzel Ward (concussion) already ruled out.

December 6, 2018 03:52 PM
Browns' Phillip Gaines: Limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Gaines did not practice to begin the week, so his limited practice session is a step in the right direction. It remains to be seen whether the fifth-year cornerback will suit up for Sunday's tilt against the Panthers.

December 5, 2018 04:12 PM
Browns' Phillip Gaines: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Gaines appears to have picked up a knee injury during a Week 13 loss to the Texans, during which he played 40 defensive snaps in place of Denzel Ward (concussion). If Gaines is able to get healthy and suit up against the Panthers on Sunday, he could once again see an increased role if Ward is unable to clear the league-mandated concussion protocol.
