Browns HC Hue Jackson told reporters that TE Gary Barnidge had sports hernia surgery Thursday. The team expects him to miss the rest of spring workouts but be ready for training camp. That would give Barnidge plenty of time to prepare for the regular season, and players regularly return fine from this surgery -- with some even playing through the injury. This doesn't alter our 2016 outlook for the veteran TE, especially with no clear challenger to his role on the team.
The Browns have released TE Gary Barnidge -- not a major surprise after trading back into the 1st round to grab TE David Njoku last night. After an out-of-nowhere 1,043-yard, 9-TD 2015 season, Barnidge mustered just 612 yards and 2 scores this past year. He figures to latch on elsewhere but turns 32 in August and isn't particularly likely to re-emerge as a fantasy asset. Cleveland, meanwhile, is clearly expecting Njoku to play a significant rookie-year role. The only other TEs on the roster are Seth DeValve and Randall Telfer.
Browns HC Hue Jackson said Monday that TE Gary Barnidge "tweaked" a knee in the 1st half of Sunday's loss to the Giants, according to Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot. That led Jackson to rotate Barnidge the rest of the way and avoid overworking him. Barnidge still played 76% of the offensive snaps, though. This doesn't seem like an issue that should impact his fantasy outlook -- especially with a Week 13 bye to rest up. The fact that Barnidge hasn't caught more than 3 passes in a game since Week 7, on the other hand, is a good reason to not bother with him.
Browns TE Gary Barnidge (forearm, hip) is active for today’s game against the Titans. We haven’t heard any concern about those injuries. Barnidge is a low-end TE1 for Week 6.
Browns TE Gary Barnidge (forearm, hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Titans. He put in 3 limited practices this week, and we’ve seen nothing to suggest that either injury will keep him out this week. Barnidge is a low-end TE1 vs. Tennessee’s 15th-ranked TE defense.
Browns TE Gary Barnidge passed his physical, according to insider Mary Kay Cabot. He underwent sports hernia surgery in June and might still be limited at the start of training camp, per Cabot. But Barnidge should be a full-go well ahead of Week 1. Although his stock took a bit of a hit with the reinstatement of WR Josh Gordon, Barnidge is still in the low-end TE1 mix.
