QB takes part in non contact drills Wednesday
|CLEVELAND, Ohio -Robert Griffin III took another major step back to the playing field Wednesday when he was designated for return from injured reserve.
He practiced Wednesday for the first time since fracturing the coracoid bone in his left shoulder during the season opener at Philadelphia.
FF Today's Take: Robert Griffin III could find himself quarterbacking an improved offense as the Browns evaluate the future of the franchise. RG3 hasn't been cleared for contact yet but there is a real chance that he could return to give Terrelle Pryor, Corey Coleman and Gary Barnidge a boost leading into the fantasy playoffs.

FF Today's Take: Pryor missed practice time this week but it appears he will give it a go in Week 7. The Browns are void of very few offensive playmakers so anything Pryor can give them today is much needed. Due to being less than 100 percent, Pryor is a Flex play only.

Hamstring injury; WR has yet to practice this week
|Terrelle Pryor suffered a hamstring injury in the third quarter of a Week 6 loss to the Titans. He has not practiced this week, but Jackson said he'll need to see Pryor run before the end of the week to determine whether he can face the Bengals.
Perhaps Jackson inadvertently revealed Pryor will at least be limited against the Bengals when the coach said “obviously we will see more of (rookie receiver) Rashard (Higgins) this week.” (Akron Beacon Journal)|
FF Today's Take: It looks as though owners may need to make other plans. Jackson has reportedly "been dying" to give Higgins some playing time, so perhaps "Hollywood" has a shot at establishing a role behind Pryor and fellow rookie Corey Coleman with a solid performance against the Bengals in Week 7. That doesn't mean owners should rush out to add him, but his college pedigree is such to suggest he could be a player of interest next week.

|Browns receiver Terrelle Pryor and cornerback Joe Haden both sat out practice Thursday for the second day in a row.
Pryor suffered a hamstring injury during Sunday's 28-26 loss to the Titans, and Haden pulled a groin muscle the Thursday before the game.
Coach Hue Jackson said Wednesday he's hopeful both can play Sunday in Cincinnati. (Cleveland Plain-Dealer)|
FF Today's Take: If Pryor is at least limited on Friday, he'll have a good shot of playing Sunday against the Bengals. The Browns are thin at receiver, leaving Andrew Hawkins as a desperation play if Pryor sits.

FF Today's Take: Pryor is sole focus of the Browns passing game, so he would be sorely missed if he can't suit up against the Bengals. More updates to come...
| Terrelle Pryor dealing with hamstring injury -- Mon Oct 17 5:25 pm --|
Will be evaluated throughout the week
|Terrelle Pryor has a hamstring injury. HC Hue Jackson says they’ll see how that goes through the week. (Cleveland Browns on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Literally all five players who have received snaps at quarterback for Cleveland this season have missed game action, been released or are currently hurt. The team's top three receivers are either currently out or hurt as well. Pryor has emerged as the team's go-to receiver with Josh Gordon away and rookie Corey Coleman injured. Be sure to monitor his status throughout the week, but he's a WR3 with obvious WR2 upside if this ends up being a minor issue.
| Cody Kessler expected to play Week 6 -- Mon Oct 10 10:43 am --|
|After a scare yesterday, #Browns QB Cody Kessler (ribs) is expected to be back under center vs. the #Titans, I’m told. He checked out OK. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: The Browns QB left in Week 5 with a rib injury allowing Charlie Whitehurst into the game. Whitehurst (knee) left the game as well causing the Browns to finish the game with Terrelle Pryor at quarterback. Kessler won't be a fantasy option against the Titans in Week 6.

Rookie receiver joins growing list of injured Browns
|Rookie first-round pick Corey Coleman broke his hand during practice on Wednesday, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. Cleveland.com first reported the development.
Both Rapoport and Cleveland.com both noted that there was no recovery timetable yet available.
FF Today's Take: Yikes. Corey Coleman was just starting to make his mark on this offense but now will be put on shelf until further notice. This opens the door for Terrelle Pryor, Andrew Hawkins and Duke Johnson to get more targets in the short term. How effective any of them will be with the team depending on rookie quarterback Cody Kessler remains to be seen.
