12/13/17WRMatt HazelHamstringQUESTIONABLEThe Browns signed Hazel off the Colts' practice squad Wednesday, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports. Hazel was limited at Wednesday's practice due to a hamstring injury, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal.

Hazel will take the spot of fellow receiver Bryce Treggs, who was waived Wednesday in a corresponding move. The Browns likely wouldn't have added Hazel to the 53-man roster if his injury was a serious concern, so it shouldn't impact his availability for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Instead, Hazel's low standing on the depth chart and lack of familiarity with the playbook will likely prove to be more significant obstacles to him earning an active status for the contest.

12/13/17TEDavid NjokuFootQUESTIONABLENjoku was limited at practice Wednesday with foot and wrist injuries, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

After recording a career-high 74 receiving yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Chargers, Njoku had a disappointing follow-up effort in Sunday's overtime loss to the Packers, hauling in just one reception for three yards. It appears he may have gotten nicked up in the contest as well, though neither injury is believed to be anything overly significant. Njoku is officially listed as third on the Browns' depth chart at tight end, but he and Seth DeValve are the clear top pass-catching options at the position, despite the blocking-minded Randall Telfer being listed ahead of them in the pecking order.

12/13/17DBJamar TaylorFootQUESTIONABLETaylor was held out of practice Wednesday with a foot injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

The cornerback likely sustained the injury in Sunday's overtime loss to the Packers, during which Taylor finished with three tackles. It's too early to predict if the foot issue will prevent him from taking part in the Week 15 matchup with the Ravens, but Taylor's lack of turnover production -- he's recorded no interceptions and one forced fumble in 13 games this season -- will probably keep him off the IDP radar in any case.

12/11/17DBBriean Boddy-CalhounKneeQUESTIONABLEBoddy-Calhoun (knee) did not participate at the Browns' practice Wednesday.

Boddy-Calhoun was inactive for last Sunday's loss to the Packers, his first missed game of the season. There is no clear timetable for his return, but Thursday and Friday's practice sessions should provide a bit more clarity on his status for Week 15.

12/11/17DBJabrill PeppersKneeQUESTIONABLEPeppers (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday.

The rookie safety was inactive against the Packers in Week 14 due to a knee injury he suffered the week prior. Peppers originally was expected to miss multiple games, but his return to practice suggests he could suit up Sunday.

12/11/17DLDanny SheltonRibsQUESTIONABLEShelton (chest, ribs) was limited during Wednesday's practice.

Shelton missed last Sunday's matchup with the Packers after failing to practice all week, so the fact that he returned Wednesday as a limited participant is a positive sign for his Week 15 status.

09/13/17RBBrandon WildsShoulderOUTWilds (shouder) reached an injury settlement with the Browns on Tuesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Wilds injured in his shoulder in the latter half of training camp and was unable to earn a spot on the 53-man roster. He reverted to the team's injured reserve after getting waived/injured by the club. He now is free to find a new opportunity once he recovers from his shoulder ailment.
