Browns' Tyrod Taylor: Sees limited action Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor completed 4-of-7 pass attempts for 22 yards and ran once for five times in Friday's 19-17 preseason loss to the Bills.

Meanwhile, No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield completed 7-of-13 attempts for 75 yards in the contest. As intriguing a narrative as the notion of Mayfield overtaking Taylor in short order might be, coach Hue Jackson maintains that the Browns are committed to Taylor as their starter out of the gate this season. With that in mind, Taylor is in line to work with an interesting collection of pass-catchers, featuring wideouts Jarvis Landry and Josh Gordon (now that he's back with the team), as well as promising tight end David Njoku and change-of-pace back Duke Johnson. Assuming Taylor clicks with the above-mentioned players, he brings a degree of fantasy utility to the table, factoring in the points he can rack up with his wheels, as well as his tendency to record a low turnover rate.

Browns' Genard Avery: Returns for second preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avery logged one tackle during Friday's preseason game against the Bills.

Avery seems to be over the groin injury that forced him to miss the Browns' preseason opener. The fifth-round rookie is competing for a depth role in advance of the 2018 campaign, but snaps could be hard to come by in Cleveland's loaded linebacking corps.

Browns' Josh Gordon: Placed on NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon has been placed on the Browns' active/non-football illness list.

Gordon has returned to the team from a personal absence, but at this stage he doesn't have clearance from the NFL to practice with his teammates or play in games. There's not yet a timetable in place for that to change, but this represents the next step in the wideout's planned return to action.

Browns' Josh Gordon: Can't practice yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (personal) is returning to the Browns, but he's still in the NFL's substance abuse program and hasn't been given permission to practice, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

Gordon's reinstatement last year came with conditions that extend into future seasons, and he apparently hasn't yet done enough to receive clearance for practice or games. An NFL spokesman did say Gordon can observe practice and do conditioning work while he makes his way toward the next step in the process. With no timeline provided for that next step, it's hard to say if Gordon will be ready for the start of the regular season, despite Saturday's announcement that he's rejoining the team.

Browns' Josh Gordon: Returns to Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon announced he's returning to Browns, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. "Thank you for your love, support, and most importantly your patience as I took the time needed to ensure my overall mental and physical health," he said in a statement.

It's not clear when he'll return to practice or if he'll be far behind in conditioning, but it looks like he'll be part of the team's plans this season.
