  Browns | Josh Gordon activated    Sat Nov 22, 01:28 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was officially activated from the exempt/commissioner permission list Saturday, Nov. 22. In a subsequent move, the team waived LB Keith Pough.

Footballguys view: While Cleveland is playing coy with how much Gordon will play or get targeted, they didn't spend the last 11 weeks waiting for him to come back just to have him watch. We expect him to have a great game and given how bad Atlanta is, the only thing that can stop him is an early blowout, though the Browns might keep him in there longer to play him into game shape. Start him as a solid WR1.

  Browns | Friday injury report    Fri Nov 21, 05:49 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Marlon Moore (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and has been ruled out for Week 12. LB Karlos Dansby (knee) did not practice and is listed as doubtful. LB Jabaal Sheard (foot) and CB Johnson Bademosi (concussion) were limited during practice and are listed as questionable. DE Desmond Bryant (wrist), LB Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) and DT Ahtyba Rubin (knee) fully participated in practice and are listed as probable.

Footballguys view: The loss of Dansby should make it easier on Alfred Blue (and/or Arian Foster, who is a game time decision) when it comes time to run the ball on Sunday.

  Browns | Jordan Cameron returns to practice    Fri Nov 21, 01:17 PM

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (concussion) returned to practice Friday, Nov. 21. He has missed the last three games with a concussion.

Footballguys view: Cameron will be out this week, but a return to practice means there is a shot he'll play next week and that being sidelined for the season is becoming less of a possibility. Pick him up if he was dropped in your league.

  Browns | Jordan Cameron doesn't practice    Thu Nov 20, 06:07 PM

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (concussion) did not practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: We aren't sold that he will play at this point, and that will be solidified if he misses tomorrow. At best he should be a solid TE2, but it depends upon him practicing tomorrow.

  Browns | Josh Gordon sits out of practice    Thu Nov 20, 06:03 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (non-injury related) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: Gordon should be in your lineup anyway, as a WR2, though he has the potential to be much more even in his first week back.

  Browns | Josh Gordon needs time to acclimate?    Thu Nov 20, 04:00 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was amped up and excited to take part in his first practice with the team this year Wednesday, Nov. 19, but QB Brian Hoyer cautioned that Gordon may need some time to acclimate to offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's new offense. 'It's not so much the physical aspect as knowing the plays, the heat of the battle,' said Hoyer. 'We do a lot of no-huddle stuff. Obviously, we're working with him on that.' Hoyer mentioned that last year's offense was more set on getting the ball downfield, and he said he's never been one to force the ball to one specific player.

Footballguys view: We don't know how much time he really needs, and have him as a solid WR2 with significant upside. More than likely you've been getting by with a different WR1, so if all goes well you'll have Gordon in your No. 2 spot and get No. 1 production from two places.

  Browns | Josh Gordon sore after practice    Thu Nov 20, 02:23 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was 'sore' after returning to practice Wednesday, Nov. 19, but the plan is to increase his activity each day this week, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Footballguys view: Well, it's to be expected after months off. While Gordon has likely been working out, he hasn't been playing football. There's a huge difference and more than likely Gordon will be feeling it going forward. We still like him this week and see him as a fringe WR1/WR2 and think the Browns will use him extensively.

  Browns | Expect Josh Gordon to be limited    Thu Nov 20, 12:22 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is expected to be limited in Week 12 because it will be his first game of the season, and the team does not want to rush him into the offense, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith said he believes Gordon will have a significant role in the game because of his ability to make plays.

Footballguys view: It's hard to imagine that, after waiting all this time, not picking up a new receiver in the draft and with a playoff berth within reach that they will take it easy on Gordon. Start him as a solid WR2, especially since we're not sure we trust Brian Hoyer, but you can bet he will see plenty of action this weekend.

  Browns | Josh Gordon doesn't do all drills    Wed Nov 19, 05:59 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (non-injury) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Nov. 19. Gordon looked happy and was in great shape, and he caught passes from the quarterbacks in the portion that was open to the media. Head coach Mike Pettine indicated that Gordon will be limited throughout the week. 'The trap to fall into is, 'Hey, he's back and let's just go ahead and throw him out there for a bunch of plays.' There's certainly danger inherent in doing that and we have to be smart with how we do it and have a plan to progress through the week,' Pettine said.

Footballguys view: Gordon should be in your lineup this week. Most Gordon fantasy owners should be able to have Gordon as a WR2 at least. Some out there are going to even be able to flex the star receiver. Pettine also cautioned that Gordon isn't back to full football shape, and it'll take him some time to learn a new offense.

  Browns | Isaiah Crowell still learning    Wed Nov 19, 03:21 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell doesn't have a fumbling problem, according to head coach Mike Pettine. 'I think if we get his fundamentals cleaned up [he'll be OK]. How he holds the ball is not an issue,' Pettine said.

Footballguys view: Crowell has fantastic instincts for running the rock...he just needs to do a better job of securing the football. With the release of Ben Tate, Crowell should be the team's lead back. Fellow rookie Terrance West will serve as his backup.

  Browns | Josh Gordon has big plans    Wed Nov 19, 01:48 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has big plans in his return to game action in Week 12. Gordon told reporter Nate Burleson that he plans to tear up the league when he returns. 'He told me: 'Starting on practice this Wednesday, I'm going to outwork everybody on the field,'' Burleson said Tuesday. '(He said) 'I'm going to try to evoke a pride in Cleveland that can hopefully lead us to the playoffs.' He's excited about coming back.'

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners should have big plans for Gordon. He was a superstar last year for the Browns, and he could easily pick up where he left off in a nice matchup against a poor Falcons defense. Gordon's return will change the target distribution for guys like Andrew Hawkins or Taylor Gabriel. We like Gordon as a WR2 with WR1 upside in Week 12.

  Browns | Ben Tate waived    Tue Nov 18, 11:19 AM

The Cleveland Browns have waived RB Ben Tate.

Footballguys view: The Browns are moving on with rookie backs Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West. Tate may draw some interest from teams like the Colts or the Steelers. He wasn't doing much for the team this year, and he certainly was a disappointment as a free agent signing. We'll see how long it takes Tate to find a new job.

  Browns | Josh Gordon reinstated    Mon Nov 17, 11:26 AM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has been reinstated Monday, Nov. 17, after serving his 10-game suspension.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners rejoice! Those fantasy players who have been patiently waiting for Gordon's return could have a WR1 each week going forward. Gordon was able to put up fantastic numbers last year with the likes of Jason Campbell and Brandon Weeden throwing him the ball--catching passes from Brian Hoyer will be an upgrade.

  Browns | RB carousel will continue in CLE    Mon Nov 17, 10:56 AM

Cleveland Browns RBs Ben Tate, Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West will continue to be mixed and matched on a weekly basis, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Crowell had a critical lost fumble Sunday, Nov. 16, but the team kept going to him despite the miscue. 'It's something we'll look at week to week,' Pettine said. 'We're not just going to pick one. When you go in a game-plan situation you look at what gives us the best chance to win.'

Footballguys view: Round and round it goes, where it stops nobody knows! This is not what fantasy owners wanted to hear. Just when it looked like Terrance West was their guy, we get surprise news on Sunday morning that Isaiah Crowell is the starter. We believe Crowell is the most talented back on the roster, but his ball-security problems could put him in the doghouse with the staff. All three backs are talented--and great fits in the offense. Deciphering which one is going to be the best fantasy play on a weekly basis is complicated.

  Browns | Brian Hoyer struggles in loss    Sun Nov 16, 09:36 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer completed 20 of his 50 pass attempts for 330 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 11 game against the Houston Texans. He is the fourth NFL quarterback since 1988 to at throw at least 50 passes with a complete percentage of 40 percent or lower.

Footballguys view: Hoyer was let down by some drops, but his scattershot accuracy was a problem as the Browns tried to get back into this game. He should be helped by the return of Josh Gordon next week, but Hoyer is not a viable option.

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron's (concussion) rest of the season could be in doubt, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Pettine said concussion symptoms can come and go.

Footballguys view: Now that Cameron has not played for multiple weeks following his concussions, there's a chance we don't see him again this year. If he was your top TE, you should make plans as if you won't have him for the remainder of the season and consider it a bonus if he does return.

  Browns | Browns will get ball to Josh Gordon    Fri Nov 14, 12:33 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is set to return to the team next week against the Atlanta Falcons after serving his 10-game drug suspension. Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is looking forward to getting Gordon back, and he doesn't seem worried about disrupting the offense by trying to get Gordon the ball. 'I haven't seen him out on the football field since training camp, so we'll have to see where he's at physically and everything," said Shanahan. 'We'll try to get him in there, and as soon as he's ready to go, we'll make sure to work to get him the ball.' Gordon has been able to work out with trainers at the team's facility but hasn't been able to practice with the team. Still, Shanahan wouldn't be surprised if Gordon was ready for full-time duty immediately.

  Browns | Terrance West not guaranteed to start    Thu Nov 13, 04:44 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Terrance West had 94 yards on a season-high 26 carries in the team's Week 10 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, but head coach Mike Pettine stopped short of saying West would start in Week 11 against the Houston Texans. "I just control what I can control, and I can control my performance," West said. "The NFL, man, it's a roller coaster. You've always got to be ready for anything and be ready when your number is called. We will see what happens Sunday."

Footballguys view: Just when you thought there might (maybe...possibly) could be one RB to emerge from the cluster you-know-what at RB in Cleveland.....this news item comes along and crushes that thought. The Browns have rich man problems at the position. West, Ben Tate and Isaiah Crowell could all be quality bellcow backs...but the workload is split unevenly, and fantasy owners are left guessing which one will be the hot play from week to week.
