Broncos WR/PR Jordan Norwood tore his ACL in Wednesday's joint practice with the Texans.
Norwood reportedly had a legitimate shot at making the 53-man roster as the Broncos' sixth wideout and punt returner. He caught 4-of-5 targets for 54 yards and a touchdown through two preseason games, but will now miss the year. Norwood, 28 next month, hasn't appeared in a regular season game since 2012.

Broncos signed WR Jordan Norwood, LB L.J. Fort, S Eric Hagg, OL Mike Farrell, and OL Ryan Miller to reserve/future contracts.

Norwood caught 36 passes for 405 yards and one touchdown in 16 games with the Browns from 2011-2012. Fort, Hagg, and Miller all also played for the Browns in 2012. Ex-Cleveland GM Tom Heckert is currently in Denver's front office.

Bucs agreed to terms with WR Jordan Norwood, formerly of the Browns.

DE Aaron Morgan was waived in a corresponding move. A fifth-year undrafted free agent, Norwood spent the past two years with the Browns. He was waived on Monday. He's likely just a camp body, but the Bucs don't have a set slot receiver. Norwood plays exclusively in the slot.

Browns waived WR Jordan Norwood.

Norwood is a slot receiver only, and the Browns are all set there with Davone Bess. Norwood could still help a team with a specific need at his position.

ESPN Cleveland considers WR Jordan Norwood on the roster bubble.

Norwood is a carryover from former GM Tom Heckert and will need a strong preseason to avoid being cut. Josh Cooper, Ryan Miller, and Owen Marecic are also in danger of losing their roster spots.

Browns re-signed exclusive rights free agents WR Josh Cooper and LS Christian Yount.

Norwood caught 13 passes in two games last season before a foot injury landed him on injured reserve. He'll compete with Josh Cooper for slot duties. The Browns are hosting free agent David Nelson for a visit on Thursday. Nelson would vault ahead of both Norwood and Cooper if signed. Regardless of whether Nelson is brought aboard, Norwood won't be guaranteed a roster spot in camp.

Browns assigned WR Jordan Norwood (foot) the "designated for return" tag on injured reserve.

Norwood can't resume practicing for six weeks, and won't be eligible to return for eight weeks. It's an extremely ill-timed blow for a player who had recently locked down slot duties and caught a career-high nine passes in Week 5. It also means rookie Brandon Weeden will have one less security blanket over the middle. Although Norwood should play again this season, he's not worth holding onto in PPR leagues. It's unclear whom the Browns will install in the slot.

Browns WR Jordan Norwood (foot) was spotted on crutches Thursday.

The Browns have been mum on Norwood's status, but with his left foot in a boot, he's clearly out for Week 6. It's a disappointment for a player who could have been in for increased snaps with Mohamed Massaquoi (hamstring) and Travis Benjamin (hamstring) both still on the shelf. Norwood should be considered week-to-week.

According to FOX 8 Sports in Cleveland, WR Jordan Norwood has a sprained foot and is in a walking boot.

Browns coach Pat Shurmur was very coy when asked about Norwood on Wednesday, refusing to even acknowledge that his slot receiver is injured. If this report turns out true, Norwood is facing a multi-week absence.

WR Jordan Norwood is listed on the Browns' Week 6 injury report.

Coach Pat Shurmur declined to provide an update when asked if Norwood is hurt. It's strange timing considering Norwood had a career day with nine catches and 81 yards in Week 5. He has the starting slot job sewn up as long as he's active against the Bengals this week.

Browns WR Jordan Norwood caught nine balls for 81 yards in the team's Week 5 loss to the Giants.

Seeing an uptick in playing time due to Travis Benjamin and Mohamed Massaquoi's hamstring injuries, Norwood was heavily targeted among Brandon Weeden's 35 pass attempts and played efficiently in the slot. Norwood is a decent little inside receiver, but brings to the table little big-play ability. We certainly wouldn't rush to pick him up in fantasy leagues.

ESPN Cleveland says not to be surprised if undrafted rookie Josh Cooper edges out Jordan Norwood for the slot receiver job.

Norwood managed just 23 catches in 14 games last season. Meanwhile, Cooper was Brandon Weeden's second-favorite target at Oklahoma State, hauling in 71 catches for 715 yards a year ago. At the very least, Norwood has a battle on his hands.

Jordan Norwood is working as the first-team slot receiver at Browns OTAs.

He should be pushed for this role in camp by rookies Travis Benjamin and Josh Cooper, but Norwood is the incumbent and gets the first crack. Norwood finished last season with 23 catches for 268 yards and one touchdown. The only Browns receivers worth 2012 fantasy looks are Greg Little and perhaps Benjamin.

ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi believes undrafted rookie Josh Cooper could be a "formidable challenger" to slot receiver Jordan Norwood.

Cooper's odds increase if Brandon Weeden wins the quarterback job, as the two played together at Oklahoma State. Grossi also believes Josh Cribbs "appears to be fading as an integral receiving option by the coaching staff," and Carlton Mitchell "could be a wild-card surprise if he has an injury-free preseason."

Browns re-signed exclusive rights free agent WR Jordan Norwood to a one-year, $465,000 contract.

An undrafted free agent in 2009, Norwood had just one career appearance before playing in 14 games last season. He made four starts, and hauled in 23 catches for 268 yards and a touchdown. A 5-foot-11, 180-pound slot receiver, Norwood has limited to nonexistent fantasy upside in the Browns' pop-gun attack.
