The Dolphins on Saturday elevated WR Antonio Callaway from the practice squad. We wouldn't consider the former Cleveland Brown a fantasy option for Week 10, but his role will be interesting to watch as the team deals with Preston Williams landing on IR.

The Browns have released WR Antonio Callaway. He slipped to the the 4th round of the 2018 draft due to a plethora of off-field issues -- and that continued in Cleveland. We'll see if the 22-year-old gets another shot elsewhere. Rashard Higgins is back as the Browns' #3 WR but isn't a fantasy option unless we see this passing game get rolling.

Browns WR Antonio Callaway is a healthy scratch for today's game against the Bills. He's been serving as Cleveland's #3 WR -- a role that now figures to go back to Rashard Higgins. Higgins isn't a viable Week 10 fantasy play, but he's worth keeping an eye on today.

Browns WR Rashard Higgins (knee) isn't listed on the final Week 6 injury report. But HC Freddie Kitchens wouldn't say whether Higgins will play against the Seahawks on Sunday, according to insider Scott Petrak. Higgins operated as Cleveland's #3 WR in Week 1, but WR Antonio Callaway is in the mix now. Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry are the only Browns who should be in Week 6 fantasy lineups.

Browns WR Rashard Higgins is inactive for tonight's game against the 49ers. It marks the 4th straight game he will have missed because of his knee injury. We'll see whether Antonio Callaway can wrest #3 WR duties from Damion Ratley in his return from a 4-game league drug suspension.

Browns WR Antonio Callaway has been suspended 4 games for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Callaway has already unsuccessfully tried to appeal the ban. The 22-year-old entered the league last year with major character concerns, so this shouldn't come as a major surprise. The news also explains why Callaway has been running behind WR Rashard Higgins in training camp. Higgins will open the season as Cleveland's #3 WR. Callaway isn't worth rostering redraft leagues.

Browns WR Rashard Higgins has been working with the 1st team in camp so far, ahead of 2nd-year WR Antonio Callaway, according to Scott Patsko of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Even when Odell Beckham missed team drills Monday, Derrick Willies and Jaelen Strong reportedly stepped in for 1st-team reps over Callaway. The Browns' #3 WR spot will likely only matter in deep fantasy football leagues, but it's worth noting that Higgins looks like the early favorite -- especially after Callaway flashed some deep-ball abilities as a 4th-round rookie.

Browns WRs Antonio Callaway (ankle) and Rashard Higgins (knee) are active for today’s game against the Chiefs. We’ll be curious to see how these guys and Damion Ratley are deployed behind Jarvis Landry. One or 2 of them could have a nice fantasy day in what figures to be a pass-heavy game from the Browns as they try to keep up with Patrick Mahomes and Co.

The Browns believe WRs Antonio Callaway (ankle) and Rashard Higgins (knee) will be able to play today against the Chiefs, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Both will test things out pregame but should be in the lineup. Neither looks like a strong fantasy option for Week 9, but Higgins is worth a stash in a situation that could quickly find him the #2 WR behind Jarvis Landry.

Browns WRs Antonio Callaway (ankle) and Rashard Higgins (knee) are listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Chiefs. Higgins was limited in practice this week, while Callaway was added to the injury report on Thursday and sidelined on Friday. We’ll find out these guys’ statuses by noon ET on Sunday, but it’s a situation to avoid in Week 9 fantasy lineups.

Browns HC Hue Jackson said Monday that WR Antonio Callaway will start this weekend's opener against the Steelers. That'd be alongside WR Jarvis Landry and instead of WR Josh Gordon. Of course, who starts is far less important than who plays the most snaps. And we'd still bet on Gordon playing the 2nd most snaps among Browns WRs. But he won't be a full-go after essentially missing all of August. Gordon will be a risk/reward WR3 in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Browns WR Josh Gordon tweeted Saturday just after noon that he's ready to "humbly return to being a member" of the Browns. The announcement comes a day after Cleveland's 2nd preseason game against the Bills. We have to assume he'll rejoin the team for practice in the coming week. We'll see if Gordon's ready to play in the "dress rehearsal" 3rd exhibition Thursday against Philadelphia. We'll also have to see what his extended absence means for his depth-chart standing. Of course, Gordon's return is obviously good news for both the Browns offense and the fantasy outlook for 1 of the league's most physically gifted receivers. His ADP has remained a bit high for our tastes, but Gordon's draft-day evaluation comes down more to where (if at any point) you feel comfy taking the risk.

Update: According to NFL PR guy Brian McCarthy, Gordon is allowed to attend practices and meetings but cannot yet participate in practice. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Gordon is still in the league's "jointly negotiated substance abuse program." Gordon remains a risky pick in fantasy football drafts.

Browns WR Antonio Callaway was pulled over and cited for marijuana possession and driving with a suspended license at 2:59 a.m. this past Sunday, according to ESPN's Tony Grossi. That'd be less than 24 hours before Cleveland traded away WR Corey Coleman. Callaway had a prime opportunity to capture the #3 WR gig but is now likely looking at a suspension -- especially considering his checkered past. His time at Florida included arrests for sexual assault and marijuana possession, plus a year-long suspension for his involvement in a credit card fraud scheme. Callaway also failed his drug test at the Combine. We'll see what the league decides here, but it's tough to use a draft pick on the rookie at this point. Rashard Higgins is next up on the Browns' depth chart if Callaway misses time.

Browns insider Mary Kay Cabot believes WR Antonio Callaway's "emergence" in training camp is part of the reason the team felt comfortable trading WR Corey Coleman to Buffalo. This isn't the first buzz we've heard on Callaway, who some scouts believe is 1 of the most talented WRs in this year's rookie class. He slipped into the 4th round of the draft due to a litany of off-field issues. Callaway actually ran ahead of Coleman as Cleveland's "X" receiver in camp on Friday, according to Cabot. That'll be Josh Gordon's spot when (if?) he returns. But Callaway at least looks in line to serve as the Browns' #3 WR this season, giving him some late-round flier appeal. And if Gordon remains away, Callaway could return a big profit.

Browns WR Antonio Callaway is back on the field after missing most of the spring with a groin injury. And he's been impressing. Callaway "tore up the defensive backs in 1-on-1 drills" on Thursday, according to insider Mary Kay Cabot. He "looked fast and healthy." Callaway lasted into the 4th round of this year's draft due largely to character concerns. Some had him pegged as a 2nd-round talent. Cabot believes the rookie could push Corey Coleman for his spot on the depth chart. That battle becomes more and more interesting the longer Josh Gordon is away from the team.

Browns WR Antonio Callaway missed 7 of 12 offseason practices with a groin injury, per beat writer Nate Ulrich. He should be back at full health by the time Cleveland opens up training camp on July 26. The rookie will spend camp battling Corey Coleman for the #3 role behind Josh Gordon and Jarvis Landry. Callaway will be given a chance to earn return duties, too.

The Browns selected Florida WR Antonio Callaway in the 4th round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Callaway would have come off the board much earlier if not for off-field issues, including arrests for sexual assault and marijuana possession. He was also suspended for the entire 2017 campaign for his involvement in a credit card fraud scheme and then failed his drug test at the Combine. When on the field at Florida, Callaway averaged 15.7 yards per catch and scored 3 return TDs. The 5’11, 200-pounder registered a 44th percentile SPARQ score in the pre-draft process. If he can stay out of trouble, Callaway has a shot to make a significant impact as a pro. He joins a crowded WR corps in Cleveland, though, that also includes Josh Gordon, Jarvis Landry and Corey Coleman.
