Winston (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Nate Ulrich of Ohio.com reports.
Winston hasn't practiced since Aug. 15 and missed the team's last two preseason games with a hurt shoulder. Instead of cutting him, the Browns decided to place him on IR with hopes he'll be able to contribute at some point in the future. The 27-year-old was far down on the depth chart before being injured, fighting with a handful of other players for the third running back spot.
Winston (shoulder) did not play in Thursday's preseason loss to the Falcons, George Thomas of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Winston hasn't practiced since injuring his shoulder on Monday. The third-year back is near the bottom of the Browns depth chart and will need a very strong camp performance to make the team and see any role on offense.
Winston sat out of Monday's practice as he is dealing with a shoulder injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
The 27-year-old has played his first two seasons with the Browns, but has only posted one rush for negative eight yards. He currently sits at fifth on the team's depth chart at running back, and figures to have a long shot at making the final roster.
Winston, who did not play Week 17 due to a concussion, finished the season with one rushing attempt for a loss of eight yards.
To make matters worse, that single attempt resulted in Winston losing a fumble. The 26-year-old back was active for three games this season, primarily to provide an emergency option behind Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson following the release of Robert Turbin. Winston is on a team-friendly contract for another season, one in which he'll likely serve a similar role.
Winston (knee) will be activated from the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list this week, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Winston returned to practice in late October, and it appears he is ready for game action after a couple weeks of practice. The Browns cleared the road for him to return by waiving fellow running back Robert Turbin on Tuesday. Head coach Mike Pettine has been impressed by Winston's work in practice, but Winston will slot in as the third running back on the Browns' depth chart, and will have to earn a regular role in the offense.
Winston (knee) -- who is one the Browns' non-football injury list -- returned to practice Wednesday, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Winston, who underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on Aug. 6, is eligible to play as soon as this coming weekend. He will now need to be activated by the team within three weeks, or else he'll remain on the team's reserve list for the rest of the season.
The battered Browns list three injured players on their inactive list for their Sunday game at Carolina, including Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden (shoulder). Also hurt and out are fellow corner K'Waun Williams (hamstring) and tight end Gary Barnidge (rib).
The healthy scratches are wideout Rodney Smith , running back Glenn Winston and offensive linemen Vinston Painter and Andrew McDonald.
Injured players pepper the inactive list produced by the Browns for their Sunday game against visiting Cincinnati. They are defensive backs K'Waun Williams (hamstring) and Tashaun Gipson (knee), linebacker Karlos Dansby (knee), wideout Robert Nelson (hamstring) and tight end Gary Barnidge (rib).
The healthy scratches are tackle Vinston Painter and running back Glenn Winston.
A trio of injured Browns have landed on their inactive list for Sunday against Indianapolis, including linebacker Karlos Dansby and safety Tashaun Gipson, both with knee injuries. Gipson has stated he hopes to return for the last two games of the season.
Also injured and out is tight end Gary Barnidge (rib). The healthy scratches are wide receiver Rodney Smith, running back Glenn Winston, defensive back Robert Nelson and offensive lineman Vinston Painter.
Browns running back Glenn Winston, who has yet to carry the ball this season, believes that status will change Sunday against Indianapolis.
Winston could indeed receive some attempts given the struggles of fellow rookies Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West in the Week 13 loss at Buffalo.
"Lights, camera, action," Winston declared to the Akron Beacon Journal on Thursday before stating he has received first-team reps in practice this week and adding that he believes he's quicker downfield than Crowell.
After saying running back Terrance West has been "very careless with the football," Browns coach Mike Pettine told ESPNCleveland.com that No. 3 running back Glenn Winston, a 6-2, 220-pounder, could get reps with the regular offense.
"That's something we'll look at," Pettine said. "Because we need to pride ourselves on not turning the ball over."
Isaiah Crowell will continue to start.
Two concussed Browns have been declared inactive for their Week 11 game against Houston. They are tight end Jordan Cameron and defensive back Johnson Bademosi.

The Browns claimed two players off waivers from the 49ers: running back Glenn Winston and offensive lineman Ryan Seymour.

Among those moves was the placement of cornerback Kenneth Acker and fullback Will Tukuafu on the injured reserve list.
San Francisco cut the following players: T Carter Bykowski, TE Asante Cleveland, WR Lance Lewis, LS Kevin McDermott, CB Darryl Morris, G Al Netter, DL Lawrence Okoye, WR Kassim Osgood, T Michael Philipp, NT Mike Purcell, G Ryan Seymour, LB Shayne Skov, RB Alfonso Smith, G Adam Snyder, S C.J.
