Reiter ended last season on Injured Reserve after he tore his ACL, but he's since recovered and is looking to bounce back. He played in almost half of Cleveland's offensive snaps during the first preseason game and will likely be one of the team's top backups.
Shelton finished the week with a full practice after being limited Wednesday and Thursday to avoid the questionable tag. The 24-year-old should return to his role as starting defensive tackle for the Browns on Sunday.
With dynamic edge rusher Myles Garrett (ankle) sidelined for at least the next two weeks, the Browns will expect Orchard to take on a bigger role on the defensive line. However, he hasn't been able to practice at full capacity since injuring his groin, although his limited participation in the last two days lends some optimism for his Week 1 status.
It's been quite the turn of fortune for Treggs, who was listed as a starting receiver Week 10, but turned in zero catches on three targets over 24 snaps. He'll now head to the inactive list, as it appears he'll be the odd man out with Corey Coleman (hand) suiting up for the first time since Week 2.
Johnson tended to a shoulder injury in preparation for Week 4 but was ultimately cleared by the release of the final injury report. In the time since, he's racked up 40 carries for 196 yards, 35 catches (on 36 targets) for 254 yards and three total touchdowns across seven games. His activity level in practice this week will relay whether he's in danger of missing the Week 12 matchup with the Bengals.
After four appearances this season, including a start in Week 6, Hogan was relegated to third-string quarterback behind DeShone Kizer and Cody Kessler in advance of Week 7. Subsequently, Hogan will reside on the inactive list for a second straight contest, though there's no guarantee he'll stay there considering head coach Hue Jackson's quick trigger finger this season.
Keyes had a short stint in LA, playing only two games with the Chargers before being let go. The linebacker played exclusively on special teams and will now look for a similar role elsewhere in the league.
Barker will be added to Cleveland's injured reserve if he goes unclaimed on waivers, which seems likely since he'll miss the entirety of the 2017-18 season. The 26-year-old lineman was signed this offseason to provide depth to the offensive line.
Tretter sat out the first two practices of the week, but toughed it out and got in a full day of work Friday. He'll suit up Sunday as a result, taking on his regular role as the starting center against one of the toughest defensive fronts in the league.
Holmes, a second-year defensive end out of Montana, was cut by the Browns following Week 1 before landing a spot on the team's practice squad. He'll provide added depth to a defensive front that lost Emmanuel Ogbah (foot) and Jamie Meder (ankle) to season-ending injuries during the Week 11 loss to the Jaguars.
Taylor popped up on Friday's injury report with a previously unlisted ankle injury that left him a limited participant in practice. The ailment won't cost him his first game of 2017, however, as he's active and should be in the starting lineup opposite Jason McCourty.
Jackson was waived Thursday after the 2016 sixth-round pick injured his knee. Unless he reaches an injury settlement with the team, he'll likely be stuck on injured reserve for the entire season.
Kizer committed four turnovers in Sunday's loss, but Jackson didn't hesitate to commit to the rookie as his starter for Week 12 against the Bengals. The coach's comments further suggest that Kizer will start beyond Week 12, though it's possible Jackson changes his mind if there aren't signs of progress in the coming weeks. The only real positive from the Week 11 loss was wideout Corey Coleman (hand), who returned from injured reserve to catch six of 11 targets for 80 yards. With Josh Gordon eligible to return from suspension Week 13 against the Chargers, the team may get five games to evaluate Kizer with the aid of a legitimate NFL-caliber supporting cast.
Britt saw semi-consistent work over the seven weeks Coleman was on the shelf, but he was also limited by knee and groin issues over that time. He didn't carry an injury designation heading into Week 11, but it looks like the 29-year-old Britt won't suddenly see his role expand any time soon. Further complicating the matter is the pending return of Josh Gordon (suspension), who will be allowed to resume practicing next week. Though he did find the end zone in Week 10, Britt was hardly a consistent fantasy performer when healthy and is currently trending in the wrong direction.
Kirksey -- who once again played every defensive snap -- secured his second sack in as many weeks when he took down and stripped Blake Bortles in the third quarter of Sunday's matchup. The 25-year-old has 87 tackles and 3.5 sacks on the season.
Cleveland had room on its 53-man roster after 2016 first-round pick Corey Coleman (hand) was moved to injured reserve. Porter will slot in as a depth cornerback, but he'll probably see most of his snaps on special teams.
Carder, a special teams' captain last season, was competing with Joe Schobert for the starting middle linebacker role. He has played in 77 games with the team since 2012, but will now be sidelined until next season.
Ogunjobi was unable to return to full strength during the Browns' bye week, so he'll miss his second consecutive tilt due to the groin injury. Danny Shelton and Trevon Coley figure to assume their starting roles at defensive tackle once again.
Lengel gets the call-up from the practice squad and will step in as the No. 4 tight end on the depth chart. However, he isn't worth fantasy consideration at this juncture.
Howard was originally signed by the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina but was unable to make the team's final roster. He'll serve as an emergency option at wide receiver in Cleveland as part of their practice roster.
With Ogbah on the shelf for the rest of the 2017 season with a broken foot, Nassib -- a second-year defensive end out of Penn St. -- will be inserted into the starting lineup. Ogbah was tied for the team lead with four sacks, while Nassib has accumulated two of his own off the bench. He'll try to add to that against the Bengals on Sunday.
Hall spent time with the Browns in the preseason, collecting seven catches for 103 yards and a touchdown before all was said and done. He could be promoted to the active roster sooner than later if the Browns continue to receive underwhelming play from their current crop of receivers.
Garrett was unable to add to his team-high four sacks Sunday, but he did rack up two quarterback hits. Though the rookie has fully recovered from a concussion he suffered in Week 7, he played just 77 percent of the team's defensive snaps. That number should rise going forward, however, with Emmanuel Ogbah (foot) sidelined for the rest of the season.
Through the first seven games of the season, Coley earned the second-highest share (62 percent) of the defensive snaps among Browns defensive linemen, which translated to 19 tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery. He's joined by fellow defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi (groin) on the inactive list, thereby allowing Danny Shelton and Jamie Meder to man the starting spots at the position in Week 8.
Louis definitely didn't benefit from Corey Coleman's return from injured reserve, as the 23-year-old's lone catch was his lowest total since Week 3. Meanwhile, Coleman saw a team-high 11 targets. Coleman's presence on the field should, in theory, draw coverage away from Louis, though that didn't seem to be the case Sunday. In fact, third-string wideout Rashard Higgins actually out-snapped Louis, and although Higgins failed to make any catches, it'll be interesting to see if this becomes a trend.
If McGill ends up suiting up Sunday, it would represent his season debut. The third-year player would likely only see a handful of snaps in that scenario, given his standing as a reserve along the defensive line.
Alexander left Sunday's loss to the Bengals with the knee injury and was unable to return, and it looks like he'll be done for the remainder of the regular season. The Browns promoted Deon King from their practice squad Tuesday for added depth to their linebacking unit.
Telfer will return to his role as a reserve tight end, and he shouldn't be expected to contribute much outside of run blocking and special teams.
Dayes was limited to special teams duty on Sunday. It's worth noting that the Browns' two lead backs carried the ball just 14 times total, while Cleveland passed with its rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer 47 times and ran him on another seven occasions. When the likes of Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson aren't getting touches, it's hard to see any room in the mix for Dayes.
McCourty is set to return to the field after a two-game absence, where his presence will be particularly valued against Matthew Stafford and Detroit's passing attack. The 30-year-old has three interceptions and two forced fumbles on the season.
Schobert leads the Browns with 88 total tackles and has produced double-digit totals in all but five games this season. It appears Schobert's tackle production is not a fluke, and the 24-year-old out of Wisconsin should be considered in all IDP leagues.
The rookie offensive tackle was injured during the preseason finale against the Bears and was subsequently placed on IR. The Browns' fifth-round pick (160th overall) was expected to back up and learn from Joe Thomas, but that will have to wait until at least the 2018 season.
Peppers has missed the Browns' previous two games with a toe injury, but it appears he had a enough time to recover over the bye week. Barring any setbacks, the rookie should return to his role starting at free safety and returning kicks Sunday against the Lions.
Starting in place of Jamie Collins (knee), Burgess had a career day. He was all over the field Sunday, finishing with a career-best 16 tackles and his second sack of the season. If he continues to rack up the tackles at this pace, he could become a sneaky play in IDP leagues.
Jordan went down last week against the Seahawks. However, his full participation Thursday suggests he isn't in line to miss any time.
Smith has been relegated to a strict special-teams regimen this season, and he's already on his second tam of the season as he was waived by the Bengals in early November and picked up by Cleveland less than a week later. If he's unable to return Sunday, his special teams snaps will likely be picked up by Kai Nacua.
Calitro agreed to terms with San Francisco after the team placed Malcolm Smith (pectoral) on injured reserve. In all likelihood, Calitro will see most of his duties on special teams if he makes the 53-man roster out of training camp.
Vitale had returned to practice Wednesday but was a limited participant, so he's certainly trending in the right direction with respect to being available for Sunday's season opener against the Steelers. The second-year fullback did not record a carry in nine games for the Browns last season, but he did notch four receptions for 27 yards.
Collins may have to sit out a few weeks. The fifth-year linebacker has played just six games this season, compiling 31 tackles (21 solo), one sack and one interception. In the event of an absence, James Burgess will be called upon to pick up Collins' duties for the time being.
The high-ankle sprain Meder suffered in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars was likely to keep him sidelined for at least one game, so the Browns decided to shut down the reserve lineman for good in order to free up a roster spot for a healthy player. Meder finishes the 2017 campaign with 13 tackles across 10 games.
While the Jaguars were able to generate 139 yards on 44 carries in frigid weather conditions Sunday, per the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, Crowell was bottled up by Jacksonville's defense, with his longest carry going for five yards. He'll look to bounce back on the road against the Bengals next weekend, a plausible outcome, given that the 5-foot-11, 225-pounder approached Week 11 action on the heels of back-to-back solid efforts, in which he combined for 27 carries for 154 yards and two TDs.
Though Coleman appears to have cleared concussion protocol after logging a limited practice Friday, he's not in line for many snaps as the team's backup offensive tackle.
Bitonio looks to be on track to play Sunday against the Steelers after practicing on a limited basis Wednesday and Thursday.
Coming off his best game of the season Week 10, DeValve failed to keep the momentum going against the Jaguars. Granted, quarterback DeShone Kizer struggled throughout the contest, completing just 16 total passes, so not much of DeValve's lackluster performance should be blamed on him. Plus, DeValve was on the field for 12 more plays than fellow tight end David Njoku, and it has become abundantly clear that coach Hue Jackson favors the former over the rookie.
Just one day after returning from a finger injury, Brantley is out again. Thankfully, the team thinks he'll be fine and expects him to return soon.
Over Njoku's last two games, the rookie tight end has only been able to haul in two catches for 16 yards, as Seth DeValve continues to get most of the playing time in coach Hue Jackson's offense. Njoku's one target Sunday was his lowest total of the season, and he hasn't been able to find the end zone since Oct. 8. The 21-year-old has 20 receptions for 211 yards and three touchdowns this season.
While starting cornerback Leodis McKelvin nurses a hamstring injury, the Eagles will promote Smith as a depth option in the secondary.
The 0-10 Browns didn't get much going offensively Sunday, but the fact that Coleman was quickly able to reestablish chemistry with quarterback DeShone Kizer following a seven-game absence was a bright spot. Coleman may see his target volume take a hit if Josh Gordon (suspension) is able to play beginning Week 13 against the Chargers as anticipated, but the second-year wideout will rank as the Browns' clear top receiver for the team's Week 12 matchup with the Bengals.
Rounds, an undrafted rookie out of Tulane, spent the preseason with the Bears, averaging just 2.3 yards per carry on 36 attempts. The Browns will oversee Rounds' development on the practice squad for now, but even if he gets promoted to the 53-man roster at some point, he's unlikely to have much of a role in Cleveland's offensive game plans.
When Kizer left the game with a rib injury, Kessler was called on to replace the rookie, though the former USC quarterback ultimately failed to move the ball as well as his teammate. He was sacked three times during his seven plays of action while completing just one pass. Kizer is confident he'll be able to suit up Sunday against Jacksonville, meaning Kessler will once again be destined for backup duties.
Coates sustained the injuries early in Sunday's game and never seemed poised for a return. The 24-year-old has only five receptions on the season and the Browns offense is unlikely to be majorly affected in his absence.
Ogbah is scheduled to undergo surgery in the near future to repair a fractured right foot, which he sustained in Sunday's 19-7 loss to the Jaguars. The second-year defensive end, who was enjoying a productive campaign with 29 tackles, four sacks and two forced fumbles in 10 games, is expected to require 3-to-4 months to heal up from the procedure.
Zeitler is expected to start at right guard Sunday, but don't be surprised if there's some sort of extra protection for his thumb.
Williams' dismissal likely paves the way for fellow wideout Corey Coleman (hand) to return from injured reserve in advance of Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Since turning in back-to-back four-reception outings in Weeks 5 and 6, Williams had seen his role within the Cleveland passing attack fall by the wayside, earning one total target over the Browns' subsequent three contests.
Boddy-Calhoun was limited in practice until Friday, when he was a full participant for the first time since injuring his hamstring in Week 8. He and the rest of Cleveland's secondary will look to slow down Matthew Stafford and the Lions on Sunday.
Kindred broke his ankle in Week 13 last season and ultimately ended 2016 on injured reserve. His participation in OTAs suggests he's since been cleared by team doctors to return to football activities.
As long as Cleveland's offense sputters, Gonzalez will be far from a viable fantasy option. He has just eight field goals on the year and has attempted only three over past three games.
Wilson, who broke his kneecap in rookie minicamp, was never removed from the preseason PUP list. He won't be eligible to return to game action until Week 7.
Higgins went without a catch for the first time this season, as No. 1 wideout Corey Coleman made his return to the field. Interestingly enough, despite Higgins' lack of production, he saw more action than Ricardo Louis, finishing with five more offensive snaps. It remains to be seen if that trend will continue, but it's definitely something to keep an eye on.
