Browns' Damion Ratley: Returns to team work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley (hamstring) is participating in team drills at Monday's practice, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Ratley sustained the hamstring injury in late July but returned to practice late last week, though he apparently didn't get enough work in to play in Saturday's preseason contest. The 24-year-old caught 13 of 20 targets for 144 yards in 13 games last season, but he may need to perform well in the last two preseason games to earn a spot on the 53-man roster.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Sits out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley was unable to suit up for Saturday's preseason game against the Colts due to a hamstring injury.

Ratley had missed most of camp with the hamstring injury, and his absence is concerning, considering he returned to practice Thursday ahead of the game. With the 2018 sixth-round pick on the roster bubble, it's likely the injury is serious enough to hold him out. Ratley will have two more games to hopefully get healthy and make his case for a spot on the 53-man roster.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley (hamstring) returned to practice Thursday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Ratley has been sideline for most of camp due to a hamstring issue. He is currently on the 53-man roster bubble, so a return to camp should be advantageous for his chances. He hauled in 13 receptions for 144 yards across 13 games during his rookie season in Cleveland.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Working on the side Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley (hamstring) practiced on the side at Sunday's session, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Ratley sustained the hamstring injury Thursday and it's unclear how long he'll need before becoming a full participant in practice. Regardless, Ratley faces a difficult path to significant playing time in 2019.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Absent from practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley (undisclosed) is not participating in Friday's training camp practice, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Ratley was reportedly examined by a trainer during Thursday's practice and appears to be dealing with an undisclosed injury. The 2018 sixth-round pick notched 13 catches for 144 yards as a rookie, but he faces a more difficult path to playing time in his sophomore campaign given the addition of Odell Beckham Jr. to Cleveland's receiving corps.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Sees limited action in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley finished his rookie season with 13 receptions on 20 targets for 144 yards.

Drafted in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Ratley was buried on Cleveland's depth chart from the beginning of training camp. He did, however, have a solid four-game stretch in the beginning of the season when he hauled in 12 catches for 142 yards. From Week 10 on, though, the rookie wideout saw just one target as his time on the field disappeared. Ratley will likely fight for a depth role in 2019.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Plays two snaps against Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley played two offensive snaps and wasn't targeted during Sunday's 28-16 win over the Falcons.

A week after playing 27 percent of Cleveland's offensive snaps, the rookie wideout saw his snap count fall off a cliff Sunday, as Breshad Perriman seemingly leapfrogged him on the depth chart. It remains to be seen how much he's involved coming out of the bye week in Week 12, but don't expect him to all of a sudden be a favorite target of Baker Mayfield's.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Two catches against Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley corralled two of four targets for 16 yards during Sunday's 37-21 loss to the Chiefs.

With Rashard Higgins' return from a three-game absence, Ratley's playing time was expected to decrease, and while that was true Sunday against the Chiefs, the rookie receiver still played 27 percent of the offensive snaps. He was also targeted four times, which equaled that of Higgins. Still, Ratley should only be considered in deep and dynasty fantasy leagues, due to the fact he doesn't figure to be a key factor on offense going forward.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Hauls in one pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley caught one of four targets for 21 yards during Sunday's 33-18 loss to the Steelers.

Ratley played 50 percent of the offensive snaps Sunday, which was still considerably more than recently signed Breshad Perriman. The rookie wideout has just four receptions over the past two weeks, and it doesn't look like more involvement is on his horizon. This will be especially true if the Browns acquire another receiver before the trade deadline.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Falls back down to earth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley caught all three of his targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Buccaneers.

A week after catching six passes for 82 yards, Ratley's Week 7 performance fell of a little, though he still managed to outperform Antonio Callaway for the second straight game. The rookie wideout has stepped into the No. 3 receiver role and was on the field for 59 percent of the team's offensive snaps. If he continues to make the most of his opportunities while Callaway struggles, it isn't crazy to think Ratley could move up on the depth chart.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley (hip/back) wasn't listed Wednesday on the Browns' initial injury report for Week 7.

Ratley had a breakout game during Sunday's blowout loss to the Chargers, catching six of eight targets for 82 yards in his first game as a starter. The rookie did pick up a pair of injuries in the process, but neither will impact his availability Week 7 against the Buccaneers. As long as Rashard Higgins (knee) remains sidelined, expect Ratley to continue to play healthy snaps alongside Jarvis Landry and Antonio Callaway.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Dealing with hip, back injuries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Hue Jackson said Ratley should be "fine" after the wide receiver picked up hip and back injuries Sunday against the Chargers, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Entering Sunday's game, Ratley had been active just twice in the Browns' first five games, totaling one snap on offense and 19 on special teams. With fellow wide receiver Rashard Higgins tending to an MCL sprain, Ratley actually earned the start Sunday and ranked third in offensive snap count (65 of 74) among Cleveland wideouts behind Jarvis Landry (73) and Antonio Callaway (72). The increased exposure allowed Ratley to make his first contribution (6-82-0 on eight targets) to the box score as a professional. As long as Higgins is sidelined, Ratley should be a viable option in the Browns' passing attack.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Impressing throughout camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley has been impressive throughout camp and earned some first-team reps during Monday's practice with Antonio Callaway (groin) out, Ryan Isley of ESPN.com reports.

Ratley has yet to make a big splash under the bright lights of preseason games. Behind closed doors at practice, however, Ratley has turned coaches' heads. With Corey Coleman no longer in the picture, Ratley has a chance to latch onto the roster and perhaps even make a name for himself in 2018.

Browns' Damion Ratley: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ratley (hip) has returned to practice, Nathan Zegura of the Browns' official site reports.

Ratley was carted off the field at the very start of training camp with a hip injury, but he has since returned and impressed with his exceptional speed. Ratley, who was drafted by the Browns in the sixth round this year, has a chance to break into the team's receiving rotation if he can sharpen up his route running.
