News: Burleson (hamstring) has been released by the Browns, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Impact: Hamstring woes slowed Burleson in the preseason and the veteran wideout was deemed expendable by the Browns, presumably leaving the team on the lookout for wideout help in the coming days, with Josh Gordon's suspension having been confirmed earlier in the week.(RotoWire, )

News: Burleson (hamstring) caught one pass on two targets for 27 yards in Thursday's preseason finale against the Bears. Impact: Making his preseason debut, Burleson was able to get involved, working primarily with Johnny Manziel and the second-team offense. He hauled in another pass which was eventually called back due to an illegal formation penalty. He seems to be a near-lock to make the team at this point, and could help pick up some of the targets suspended wideout Josh Gordon leaves behind.(RotoWire, )

News: Burleson (hamstring) will play in Thursday's preseason finale, the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Impact: Burleson returned to practice Monday after missing the entire preseason thus far due to a hamstring injury. That time off could put Burleson on the Browns' roster bubble, although his veteran presence could come in handy given the uncertainty surrounding Josh Gordon's pending suspension.(RotoWire, )

News: Burleson (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland reports. Impact: Burleson has missed all three of the Browns' preseason games thus far due to a hamstring issue. However, with the regular season quickly approaching and Cleveland still awaiting a ruling regarding Josh Gordon's potential suspension, Burleson's return to action represents a welcome sight. The veteran projects to be a Top 4 receiver for the Browns this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Burleson (hamstring) won't play Saturday against the Rams, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Impact: Burleson's absence continues, marking his third DNP of the preseason in as many games. Once he's cleared for action, he'll help cover for Josh Gordon, who is awaiting word on his possible season-long suspension. However, Burleson is coming off back-to-back injury-plagued seasons in which he logged time in just 15 games, recording 66 catches (on 97 targets) for 701 yards and three touchdowns.(RotoWire, )

News: Burleson (hamstring) is inactive Monday at Washington, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Impact: Burleson continues to be beset by injury, as a hamstring issue will keep him sidelined for a second preseason game in a row. The incoming decision on Josh Gordon's suspension will inform potential owners of the receiver pecking order in Cleveland, but even when healthy, Burleson will have to compete with Miles Austin and Andrew Hawkins, among others, in the Browns' pass-catching corps.(RotoWire, )
