Browns coach Mike Pettine said Friday that Dwayne Bowe will be active for Week 4 against the Chargers.

Getcha popcorn ready. Dead-legged Bowe was scratched in two of Cleveland's first three games. His return will cut into the snap workloads of rotating WRs Travis Benjamin, Brian Hartline, Andrew Hawkins, and Taylor Gabriel.

The Browns continue to claim they aren't considering releasing Dwayne Bowe.

Bowe was a healthy scratch Sunday after drawing one target in Week 2. The Browns have tried to claim his slow start and two inactives in three weeks are due in part to a hamstring injury, but nobody is buying it. Bowe has nothing left, but the Browns didn't realize it when they gave him $9 million guaranteed. They need to cut their losses and move on.

Browns declared WR Dwayne Bowe, QB Austin Davis, RB Robert Turbin, DB K’Waun Williams, LB Scott Solomon, TE E.J. Bibbs, and DL Desmond Bryant inactive for Week 3 against the Raiders.

Bowe is inactive for the second time in the season's first three weeks.

The Browns continue to claim Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) isn't 100 percent.

"He's limited in what he's doing," OC John DeFilippo said Thursday. It's just an excuse. Bowe isn't on the Week 3 injury report. The Browns have mega buyer's remorse on Bowe, and are trying to justify not playing him. Bowe is a million miles from fantasy relevance.

Dwayne Bowe did not catch a pass in Week 2 against the Titans.

He was targeted once and is safe to ignore in re-draft fantasy leagues.
Sep 20 - 4:58 PM

Dwayne Bowe is active for Week 2 against the Titans.

He's making his Browns debut. Bowe is not expected to be a starter, but could mix into three- or four-wide receiver sets.

Dwayne Bowe will be active for Week 2 against the Titans.

He missed the opener with a hamstring injury. Being active and actually playing are two very different things. The rapidly declining veteran won't see more than a handful of snaps. He's nowhere near the fantasy radar, particularly with inept Johnny Manziel under center.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports some Browns coaches "would prefer" the team release WR Dwayne Bowe.

The problem is that the Browns stupidly guaranteed Bowe $9 million when they signed him to a two-year, $12.5 million deal back in March and may be stuck with him. He didn't practice much in training camp due to a hamstring injury and then failed to make an impression in the fourth preseason game. Bowe was basically a healthy scratch Week 1 against the Browns and may end up being one again in Week 2. Brian Hartline, Travis Benjamin, and Andrew Hawkins are currently the top three receivers in Cleveland. Bowe turns 31 on Monday.

Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 2.

Bowe declared himself ready to play on Thursday. He was limited in practice after having a setback last week. Beat writers expect Bowe to be active, but his role remains up in the air.

Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) has declared himself ready to play.

"(I) put together two great practices," Bowe said Thursday. "I am feeling pretty confident I can go out on Sunday and play." Bowe is optimistic, but OC John DeFilippo cautioned the wideout still isn't 100 percent. The Browns are in zero hurry to get Bowe back into the lineup. He could be scratched even if he's at a level with his hamstring where he would have played in the past. The Browns don't think Bowe helps their odds of winning.
Sep 17 - 4:31 PM

Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday’s practice.

Bowe was a Week 1 inactive after suffering a setback. He’ll likely need a full practice to play against the Titans. Bowe is currently listed with the third team and not guaranteed to have a role when healthy.
Sep 16 - 7:26 PM

Browns coach Mike Pettine revealed Monday that Dwayne Bowe suffered a "minor setback" with his hamstring last week.

This led to Bowe's inactivity against the Jets. Bowe's status for Week 2 against the Titans is unknown, but it's not looking good. Bowe is believed to have reported to training camp severely overweight, then missed almost all of August with the hamstring injury, which is still giving him problems.
Sep 14 - 4:33 PM

Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) is inactive for Week 1 against the Jets.

Bowe practiced on a limited basis this week and likely could have played, but isn't up to speed after missing the majority of training camp. Brian Hartline, Andrew Hawkins, and Taylor Gabriel will start in three-wide sets. The rest of the Browns inactives are CB Justin Gilbert, QB Austin Davis, RB Robert Turbin, LB Nate Orchard, TE E.J. Bibbs, and DL Xavier Cooper.
Sep 13 - 11:30 AM

Dwayne Bowe (hamstring, questionable) is expected to be inactive Week 1 against the Jets.

It's not believed to be the hamstring that's keeping Bowe out of the opener; he's missed so much of camp that he's fallen to third-string and doesn't play special teams. Look for the Browns to start Brian Hartline, Taylor Gabriel, and Andrew Hawkins in three-wide sets. Bowe was given $9 million guaranteed at signing.
