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, )

News: Burleson (hamstring) rode a stationary bike on the side during Friday's practice, and "isn't looking good" for Monday's preseason matchup with the Redskins, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Impact: Burleson didn't play in the preseason opener due to the same hamstring issue, and it appears it will keep him out of a second straight contest. The team likely wants to seem him in 11-on-11 action before deploying the veteran in a game, and reaching this goal prior to Monday's exhibition game doesn't seem probable at the moment. Depending on the ruling on Josh Gordon's suspension appeal, Burleson may have an opportunity to earn meaningful looks in the offense this season, but he'll have to get some reps out on the field before coach Mike Pettine will be comfortable sending him out for a heavy snap count.(RotoWire, )
