  Browns | Terrance West doing well    Sun Sep 14, 07:24 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Terrance West is the first rookie running back with at least 90 yards from scrimmage in his team's first two games since RB Chris Johnson (then, with the Tennessee Titans) and Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte in 2008.

Footballguys view: West looked up to the task of being the lead back and should get another start next week at home against the Ravens. He'll be good for at least a flex start.

  Browns | No package for Johnny Manziel    Sun Sep 14, 12:27 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel does not have a special offensive package in the game plan for Week 2, and would run the normal offense if he sees playing time, according to offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.

The Cleveland Browns have declared LB Barkevious Mingo, RB Ben Tate, DL Ish Kitchen, DL John Hughes, TE Jordan Cameron, WR LaRon Byrd, CB Pierre Desir inactive for Week 2.

Footballguys view: Jim Dray and Gary Barnidge will get more work with Cameron out, but Andrew Hawkins is the main beneficiary in PPR leagues. Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell will split the work with Tate out.

  Browns | Josh Gordon's suspension reduced    Fri Sep 12, 07:46 PM

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon had his suspension reduced from a season-long ban to 10 games following the new agreement between the league and the NFLPA on a new drug policy.

Footballguys view: Gordon is eligible to return in Week 12, and in all but the very shortest bench leagues, that makes him worth carrying because he could be your secret weapon for the fantasy playoffs. He does still have to keep himself in shape and his first game might not be useful, but if you bet your whole WW budget on Gordon, it looks like you got something for it.

  Browns | Friday injury report    Fri Sep 12, 06:20 PM

Cleveland Browns DE Desmond Bryant (wrist), DT John Hughes (hamstring), OG Paul McQuistan (ankle) and LB Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) are listed as questionable for Week 2, while CB Buster Skrine (thumb) is listed as probable. Mingo did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 12. Skrine fully participated in practice, while the other three players were limited during practice.

Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 12, and has been ruled out for Week 2.

  Browns | Josh Gordon could get more games    Fri Sep 12, 05:10 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon could be suspended for two additional games if he is convicted in his driving while intoxicated case in North Carolina. The hearing for the case is scheduled for Nov. 18.

Footballguys view: The case is unlikely to be settled on that hearing date, but this is a reminder that chance are we will see very little of Gordon until at least November.

  Browns | Josh Gordon suspension update    Fri Sep 12, 04:33 PM

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's suspension will be reduced to 10 games if the NFL and NFL Players Association agree on a new drug policy, according to a source.

Footballguys view: This would put Jones-Drew in play for ten fantasy weeks with a week 12 return. He could still swing playoff matchups, but his ability to stay in shape and stay healthy, while playing close to his 2013 level is still an unknown, and nothing has been settled on the drug policy front at this moment. Gordon is looking like not as great a gamble on the waiver wire as he might have been a few days ago.

  Browns | Jordan Cameron questionable    Fri Sep 12, 01:14 PM

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (shoulder) is listed as questionable for the team's Week 2 game.

Footballguys view: The team is "holding out hope" that Cameron will play, but you shouldn't. If Cameron plays and you don't have another option you trust, roll him out there, but the better outcome for his season outlook is for him to rest against the Saints and hopefully come back in Week 3 in much better shape.

  Browns | Josh Gordon's ban likely reduced    Fri Sep 12, 10:43 AM

  Browns | Sign one, cut one    Thu Sep 11, 08:35 PM

The Cleveland Browns signed OT Ryan Seymour (Browns) to the team's practice squad and terminated the contract of OG James Brown Thursday, Sept. 11.


  Browns | Jordan Cameron a no-go in practice    Thu Sep 11, 07:42 PM

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (shoulder) missed his second practice of the week Thursday, Sept. 11, and it's looking more likely that he won't suit up in Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints. He's dealing with a strained AC joint in his right shoulder after initially injuring it in the preseason.

Footballguys view: Uh-oh. Fantasy owners better have a backup plan. Cameron would be replaced by a tandem of TEs Gary Barnidge and Jim Dray Sunday, Sept. 14, if he can't play.

  Browns | Jordan Cameron to play out rookie contract    Thu Sep 11, 07:36 PM

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron couldn't agree on a new long-term deal before the season started, so he'll now likely play out his rookie deal this year, according to league sources.

Footballguys view: A bold move for the Browns considering Cameron's upside and natural talent. If Cleveland can't sign him to a long-term deal before free agency, they will likely put the franchise tag on him. The number for tight ends this year is $7,035,000.

  Browns | Johnny Manziel unlikely to be used    Thu Sep 11, 07:16 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will 'probably not' be used in Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints unless QB Brian Hoyer is injured, according to offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. Shanahan also reiterated that Manziel is not a wildcat quarterback, and any plays he would run would come from the regular offensive game plan.

Footballguys view: We shall see. The Browns lack playmakers on offense, so using Manziel as a change-of-pace quarterback would make some sense.

  Browns | Browns want Josh Gordon to play    Thu Sep 11, 05:26 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon could play against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2 if a new drug policy agreement with the NFL and Players Association becomes a reality, according to offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. 'If Josh is able to play this week, I'd like to get him out there,' Shanahan said. 'I think he'd be able to help.' The Browns have not cleared out Gordon's locker, even though he has been suspended for the year.

Footballguys view: Keep dreaming Cleveland. Never say never, but it would be shocking for the league to eliminate the remaining games in Gordon's suspension. We'll see....so fantasy owners in deep leagues should add Gordon just in case.

  Browns | Browns RBs have different styles    Thu Sep 11, 03:03 PM

Cleveland Browns RBs Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell are similar in size but have different running styles, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Pettine believes West runs like he is looking to make defenders miss, but the team wants him to finish his runs. Pettine indicated Crowell appears to be more willing to run through tackles and shows great acceleration.

Footballguys view: We expect the backs to split the workload, even though West is getting the start. If West gets hot, Crowell may just end up as a change of pace back. West's desire to truck defenders could help him when he gets to the second level, but Crowell could vulture touchdowns again. We see West as a RB3 with upside, and Crowell as no more than a RB4/flex. The matchup isn't bad but if the Saints run out to an early lead, the run game could get shelved.

  Browns | Jordan Cameron working on side    Thu Sep 11, 02:10 PM

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (shoulder) is working out on the side during practice Thursday, Sept. 11.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Browns and Cameron fantasy owners but there is no guarantee the team will put in him harms way this week. Have a backup plan just in case. At least the game has a 1pm EST kickoff which leaves you a lot more options. If he plays we see him as a TE1, although a lower-end one and a guy who has some risk in case the shoulder flares up.

  Browns | Two TEs try out    Thu Sep 11, 09:05 AM

Free-agent TE Kellen Davis (Giants) and TE Chase Coffman (Titans) tried out for the Cleveland Browns Thursday, Sept. 11.

Footballguys view: Davis couldn't cut it on a team with no clear tight end and a messy offense and Coffman has never even lived up to his third round pick billing. This is more about concern for Jordan Cameron's shoulder than anything else. Cameron says his shoulder has been bothering him since camp and recently and MRI showed a sprained AC joint. So stay tuned for news on the shoulder, but whatever happens neither of these guys will be fantasy relevant even if they get signed.

  Browns | Good news for Jordan Cameron    Wed Sep 10, 09:37 PM

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (shoulder) underwent an MRI on his sprained right shoulder and it showed no structural damage. 'Yeah, it's all good,' Cameron said. 'Right now, it's just a day-to-day thing. Just seeing how it feels when I wake up, and we'll go from there.' Cameron sprained his AC joint in Week 1, the second time he has done so since Aug. 2.

  Browns | Johnny Manziel may play Week 2    Wed Sep 10, 01:43 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could receive some playing time Week 2, according to head coach Mike Pettine. The team has a special package for Manziel in their offense.

Footballguys view: The Browns could choose to use Manziel as a change-of-pace quarterback. They'll have to do anything they can to keep up with the high-powered Saints offense in Week 2. The Browns should continue to be without Josh Gordon (suspended) and now Jordan Cameron's (shoulder) playing status is up in the air.

  Browns | Terrance West will start    Wed Sep 10, 01:00 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Terrance West will be the starting running back Week 2 with RB Isaiah Crowell also receiving playing time, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners should have expected this. Ben Tate has never played a full 16-game season during his pro career. West looked good in Week 1, but we'll see how much fellow rookie Isaiah Crowell cuts into his playing time.

  Browns | Jordan Cameron's status unknown    Tue Sep 9, 02:02 PM

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (shoulder) has no injury update on his status for Week 2, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

  Browns | No update on Ben Tate    Tue Sep 9, 02:01 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate (knee) has no injury update on his status for Week 2, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Footballguys view: The Browns have two capable rookie backs behind Tate in Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell. Fantasy owners should add one or both just in case this Tate injury is serious. He's never played a full 16-game schedule, so it shouldn't come as any surprise that Tate is once again banged up.

  Browns | Make practice squad changes    Mon Sep 8, 06:44 PM

The Cleveland Browns signed DT Calvin Barnett to their practice squad Monday, Sept. 8, and released TE Emmanuel Ogbuehi from their practice squad.


  Browns | Isaiah Crowell fits system    Mon Sep 8, 04:30 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell appears to be built for offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's system, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Footballguys view: Crowell was one of our favorite rookie backs for a reason. Coming out of high school, Crowell was a star during his freshmen season at Georgia. Weapons charges (later dropped) caused him to transfer to Alabama State. He stayed out of trouble for two years with the Hornets, and the Browns got a steal when they picked him up as an undrafted free agent. Crowell will continue to split time with Ben Tate and fellow rookie Terrance West.

  Browns | Terrance West responds favorably    Sun Sep 7, 11:17 PM

  Browns | Isaiah Crowell wasn't in plan    Sun Sep 7, 11:00 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell had a pair of rushing touchdowns in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, coming on after RB Ben Tate (knee) suffered an injury. Head coach Mike Pettine said Sunday, Sept. 7, that Crowell wasn't in the game play. He was impressed with how the rookie played. 'It was going to be Tate and (RB Terrance West). To Crowell's credit, he prepared like the starter. He went in there and did his job,' Pettine said.

  Browns | Ben Tate nursing knee injury    Sun Sep 7, 08:02 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate (knee) suffered a knee injury in the second quarter of the Week 1 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, Sept. 7, and he was unable to return. RBs Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell replaced Tate, with West rushing for 100 yards and Crowell scoring a pair of touchdowns.

Footballguys view: The Browns running game gashed the Steelers, and it could have success next week against the Saints defense that gave up big plays to multiple Falcons backs today. Terrance West would be the preferred pickup on the waiver wire getting the bulk of the worst, but Isaiah Crowell scooped up the scores, so he shouldn't be left on the waiver wire, either.

  Browns | Exam Monday for Jordan Cameron    Sun Sep 7, 05:37 PM

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (shoulder) said Sunday, Sept. 7, that he re-injured the shoulder he sprained during a scrimmage Aug. 2. Cameron isn't sure of the severity of the injury, and he will be re-evaluated Monday, Sept. 8.

Footballguys view: Cameron was seemingly the only deep threat for the Browns offense and they did get the running game going, but a shoulder injury that limits his catch radius would really put a cramp in Cameron's upside. Stay tuned.

  Browns | Josh Gordon has solid chance    Sat Sep 6, 07:41 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has 'better than a 50-50 chance' to play this season, in the opinion of ESPNCleveland.com's Tony Grossi.

Footballguys view: This is going to be a fascinating thing to watch and it all seems to hinge on the HGH/Drug Testing agreement the NFL and NFLPA have tentatively agreed to. Both Gordon and Wes Welker could see a lightening of their sentences if it goes through which means it could be the last time to buy low on either one. Whenever he returns, Gordon would be a top WR1 and Welker would be a top 20 fantasy receiver the rest of the way.
