Browns CB Joe Haden (questionable, groin) made the trip to Miami.

It confirms Haden is a game time decision. Coach Hue Jackson has suggested Haden will play, but there's always concern with late additions to the injury report. Haden is PFF's No. 2 overall corner through two weeks.

ESPN Browns reporter Pat McManamon believes Isaiah Crowell will continue to be the lead back moving forward.

There was some concern Duke Johnson would take over as the lead back before the season, but Crowell has impressed with 195 yards and two scores through two weeks. Those numbers do not tell the whole story, however. Crowell earned 40 yards on three meaningless draws at the end of a loss Week 1, and he had an 85-yard touchdown last week. He has averaged just 2.7 yards on his other 26 carries. With the offense sure to nose dive with Cody Kessler under center, Crowell is a great sell high.

Browns placed K Patrick Murray on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

Cody Parkey was signed to replace him. Murray injured the same knee which required season-ending ACL surgery last season during Friday's walkthrough. He could be headed for another surgery. The Browns need to figure out how they angered Apollo.

Browns signed K Cody Parkey.

This means the knee injury Patrick Murray suffered in Friday's walkthrough will likely keep him out of Sunday's game. The Browns are vying with the Colts to be the most injury-bitten team in the league.
Sep 24 - 9:12 AM

Cleveland CB Joe Haden (groin) missed Friday's team walk-through and is questionable for Week 3.

The injury bug has devoured the Cleveland offense and is now working its way to the defense. Haden had two interceptions in Week 2 and his potential absence is a significant issue for the Cleveland defense. The Browns D/ST won't be a viable fantasy option this week with or without Haden, but having the cornerback in the fold would help Cleveland's chances of stealing a win at Miami.

The Browns are expected to sign free agent K Cody Parkey.

He'll be replacing Patrick Murray, who injured himself at practice this week. Parkey missed most of last season with a groin injury and was among the Eagles' final cuts this summer. He's made 35-of-40 field goals for his career with a long of 54 yards.

The Browns confirmed Josh McCown suffered a broken clavicle in the Week 2 loss to the Ravens.

His break is non-displaced, and the Browns are saying he's week to week. It would be a shock if he plays before November, however. Broken collarbones are typically two-month injuries. It's now the Cody Kessler Show.

Browns CB Joe Haden (groin) is questionable for Week 3 against the Dolphins.

Already a glorious spot for Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins' passing attack, it would become even better if Haden sits. He had two interceptions last week against the Ravens and dropped another. Haden has been the only Browns cornerback to show any reasonable coverage skills through two games.
Sep 23 - 12:12 PM

Browns DC Ray Horton said Josh McCown suffered a broken left collarbone in the Week 2 loss to the Ravens.

This is the first we've heard of this, as there's yet to be any official word on what McCown's injury is. If true, McCown played a full three quarters with an injury that is likely to cost him upwards of two months. Tony Romo missed nine weeks with a similar injury last season, and Aaron Rodgers missed seven weeks in 2013. McCown could be a candidate for I.R.-designated for return. It sure seems like third-round rookie Cody Kessler will be making starts into November.
Sep 23 - 10:29 AM

Browns coach Hue Jackson said Andrew Hawkins will replace Corey Coleman (hand) in the starting lineup.

He'll start opposite Terrelle Pryor in base sets. Hawkins has been a non-factor so far, contributing just three catches for 28 yards on six targets. We're guessing the Browns will attempt to hide rookie quarterback Cody Kessler by going with a run-heavy approach in Week 3. Hawkins is off the fantasy radar.
Sep 22 - 1:40 PM

Corey Coleman is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a broken hand, but he will not require surgery.

Things just keep getting worse for the Browns, who have now lost two starting quarterbacks, their No. 1 receiver, their starting center, and a rookie defensive end to injury in the first two weeks. With Cody Kessler under center, the offense was unlikely to light up the scoreboard even if Coleman was healthy, but they are now in dire straits. The Dolphins DST is an elite option this week.

Suspended WR Josh Gordon's warrant for a paternity test has been rescinded after he complied with a year-old court order to have his DNA examined.

Per Gordon's attorneys, their client was "unaware" the request was ever made before Wednesday, at which national reports of Gordon's non-compliance surfaced. A hearing has been scheduled for November 8. An NFL spokesman said Wednesday that the situation would have no effect on Gordon's bid for reinstatement to pro football, which remains on track for Week 5.

Corey Coleman suffered a broken hand at Wednesday's practice.

One of Coleman's teammates came down on his hand after making a catch. The injury occurred at the portion of practice that was closed to the media so details are scarce. More will be known when Coleman visits a hand specialist on Thursday. Coleman needs his hand to catch footballs so it's fair to assume he'll be facing a lengthy absence. Coming off a breakout game in Week 2 (104 yards, 2 TDs), it's a shame to see Coleman go down after such a promising start. The Dolphins' defense will be an elite streaming option in Week 3 with Coleman out and third-round rookie Cody Kessler at quarterback.
Sep 21 - 6:46 PM

An NFL spokesman told the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot that suspended WR Josh Gordon remains on track to return Week 5 despite an arrest warrant being issued for him in Cleveland on Wednesday.

The warrant has nothing to do with Gordon's suspension and is expected to be settled either in or out of court. It's still troubling that Gordon is even continuing to have off-field matters creep up in his life. Gordon can't be trusted in Dynasty leagues, and whatever we get from him is viewed as a bonus.
Sep 21 - 2:11 PM

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports suspended WR Josh Gordon has a warrant out for his arrest after he failed to respond to subpoenas in a paternity case.

A female by the name of Christina Lockhart says Gordon is the father of her one-year-old daughter, and she is seeking child support. Authorities have allegedly been trying to get in contact with Gordon for months regarding the matter, but Gordon has failed to respond. He was ordered to provide a DNA sample in September 2015 but never did. Any off-field incident is bad news for Gordon.
