Browns placed WR Miles Austin on injured reserve with a kidney injury, ending his season.

He remains in the hospital. It's a tough blow for Austin, who was enjoying a bounce-back season for Cleveland. He'd appeared in all 12 games and managed to avoid injury to his balky hamstrings, posting a 47-568-2 line after an injury-riddled 2013 in Dallas. Austin is on a one-year deal. 31 next June, Austin has earned another contract, but he's no longer a game-breaker on the outside.

Miles Austin (kidney) will remain hospitalized for a third night Tuesday.

The Browns still haven't revealed the exact nature of Austin's injury, but insist his continued hospitalization is "precautionary." Austin is stuck in Buffalo, where the Browns lost on Sunday. It's extremely unlikely that he suits up for Week 14.

Miles Austin will spend another night in a Buffalo hospital with a kidney injury.

Austin was hurt in Sunday's loss to the Bills and will stay a second night as a precaution. The 30-year-old has a 47-568-2 line this season and has played in every game.

Browns WR Miles Austin has a kidney injury and will be kept overnight at a Buffalo hospital.

Austin sustained the injury during Sunday's loss to the Bills. Before going down, he went 7-86-0 on nine targets.

Miles Austin was hospitalized with abdominal pain following Cleveland's Week 13 loss to the Bills.

Details are scarce, including whether Austin's pain was the result of an injury he suffered against Buffalo. Austin was Cleveland's leading receiver on Sunday, catching 7-of-9 targets for 86 yards. He took a colossal hit from three defenders when making an ill-advised attempt at a hurdle, but was never announced with an injury. His status will be updated in the next 24 hours.

Miles Austin caught 6-of-8 targets for 64 yards in the Browns' Week 12 win over the Falcons.

The catches were Austin's most since Week 3. Increased production isn't going to be in the cards for Austin with Josh Gordon back in the fold. He's a dubious hold in 14-team leagues.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 05:36:00 PM

Miles Austin caught 3-of-8 targets for 31 yards in the Browns' Week 11 loss to the Texans.

He also had a crucial third-down drop. Devoid of playmaking ability at this stage of his career, Austin is just a possession receiver best left on fantasy football waiver wires. He will crash down the depth chart when the Browns get back Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron, which is expected in Week 12.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 06:25:00 PM

Miles Austin caught 5-of-6 targets for 48 yards in the Browns' Week 10 win over the Bengals.

The Browns' de facto No. 1 receiver in the absence of Andrew Hawkins (knee/thigh), Austin had his first five-catch performance since Week 3. Austin has done exactly what the Browns paid him to do, making chain-moving catches while keeping his famously-troublesome hamstrings healthy. But he has only 31 catches through nine games, and is bracing for the return of Josh Gordon. Austin can be left on the waiver wire in 12-team leagues.

Miles Austin caught 3-of-5 targets for 54 yards in the Browns' Week 9 win over Tampa Bay.

Austin made some critical catches for first downs, but his playmaking ability evaporated years ago. He isn't worth a roster spot in 14-team leagues. Josh Gordon will return in Week 12 to hog targets.
Sun, Nov 2, 2014 05:29:00 PM

Miles Austin caught two passes for 34 yards in Week 8.

Austin is a late-career possession receiver with WR5 value in fantasy.
Sun, Oct 26, 2014 08:08:00 PM

Miles Austin secured 3-of-8 targets for 53 yards in the Browns' Week 7 loss to the Jaguars.

He finished second on the team in targets behind Andrew Hawkins' nine. Austin has been a somewhat useful role player in Cleveland's run-first attack, but offers zero fantasy upside. He's, at best, a WR5 in PPR leagues.
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 04:55:00 PM

Miles Austin caught 2-of-3 targets for 29 yards in Cleveland's Week 6 win over the Steelers.

A fairly-standard day for Austin in the Browns' run-heavy offense. He's a WR5/6 in standard leagues.
Sun, Oct 12, 2014 06:56:00 PM

Miles Austin caught 2-of-3 targets for 54 yards in the Browns' Week 5 win over the Titans.

With Jordan Cameron back to soak up seven targets, Austin operated as a role player in Cleveland's Week 5 offense. He's a low-ceiling WR5 heading into a Week 6 meeting with the division rival Steelers.
Sun, Oct 5, 2014 06:10:00 PM

Miles Austin caught six passes for 51 yards and a touchdown in the Browns' Week 3 loss to the Ravens.

His seven targets ranked second on the team behind only Andrew Hawkins' 10. Despite back-to-back stat lines of 6-44-1 and now 6-51-1, Austin will be tough for fantasy owners to hang onto entering Cleveland's Week 4 bye. As Jordan Cameron gets healthier, Austin's targets are likely to sink, perhaps considerably.
