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 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 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.
