The Cleveland Browns cut WR Nate Burleson Saturday, Aug. 30.
Huddle Up: Burleson is 33 and battling injuries. The fact that he couldn't make the Browns - one of the most WR-needy teams in the NFL - doesn't bode well for his future.

Cleveland Browns WR Nate Burleson (hamstring) played in the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28.
Huddle Up: The 12-year vet finished with 1 catch for 27 yards on 2 targets Thursday night, but there remains a question as to whether he'll make the final roster -- even on one of the shallowest WR corps in the league -- as hammy and hand injuries have wiped out most of his preseason and also caused him to miss OTAs and mini camp.

Cleveland Browns WR Nate Burleson (hamstring) may not play in the team's preseason game Monday, Aug. 18.

Cleveland Browns WR Nate Burleson said he did not fracture his arm during an April minicamp and it was just a minor injury. He said the severity of the injury was exaggerated. Because there was no fracture, Burleson was able to run and lift weights with the cast on, and will have it removed later this week.
Huddle Up: Burleson, who's missed a combined 17 games over the past 2 seasons, is being counted on to be healthy and productive with a possible lengthy suspension looming for No. 1 wideout Josh Gordon.

Cleveland Browns WR Nate Burleson (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Thursday, May 1.
Huddle Up: Burleson, who's played in only 15 games the past 2 seasons, is looking for a reversal of his health fortunes in 2014 as he switches teams. His chances to make an impact also hinge on the Browns' draft plans as wideout Sammy Watkins is said to be in play for the team's No. 4 overall selection.
