Hawkins (thumb) had four catches on seven targets for 33 yards Sunday against the Ravens.

Hawkins finishes the season with 63 catches on 112 targets for 823 yards and two touchdowns, though he's been very up-and-down, posting six games with over 80 yards and eight games with fewer than 40 yards. The Browns have a number of decent receiving options, though with so many questions at quarterback, it's tough to see Hawkins breaking out in a big way next year.

Hawkins (thumb) is active for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Hawkins was able to return to the practice field Friday, and looked to have logged enough work to suit up for the regular season finale. He should be one of the primary targets with Josh Gordon (suspension) no longer in the mix, but is a risky fantasy play with rookie quarterback Connor Shaw at the helm.

Hawkins (thumb) returned to practice Friday Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

We'll have to see how the Browns end up listing Hawkins for Sunday's game against the Ravens, but his return to the field Friday is a positive indicator with regard to his Week 17 status.

Hawkins (thumb) was listed as a non-participant on the Browns' estimated Thursday practice participation report, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports.

What Hawkins is able to do at practice (or not do) Friday will be telling, but per the Akron Beacon Journal, Hawkins was non-committal when asked Wednesday about his chances of playing Sunday against the Ravens, indicating on that front, "we'll see."

Hawkins (thumb) didn't practice Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

We'll check back on Hawkins' status as the week rolls along, but with the wideout banged up and the Browns' Week 17 QB situation unsettled, Hawkins is looking like a speculative play this weekend.

Hawkins suffered a thumb injury in Sunday's loss to the Panthers, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Hawkins was seen wearing a splint after the game, but told reporters that he didn't suffer any broken bones. We'll monitor his practice status in advance of Week 17's matchup with the Ravens, but as long as his initial assertion holds up, he doesn't appear to be in great danger of missing that contest. If anything, the news helps to explain why he was so limited during the final three quarters Sunday.

Hawkins (illness) had one catch on four targets for 28 yards, and added seven rushing yards on two carries in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

Hawkins was found by quarterback Johnny Manziel for a 28-yard strike near the end of the first quarter, but was quiet for the rest of the contest. Both quarterback inconsistency and general offensive ineptitude have made Hawkins a fantasy non-factor during the final month of the season.

Hawkins (illness) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Panthers.

Hawkins was fully expected to play, but his fantasy potential is a much bigger question mark with rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel at the helm. Manziel targeted Hawkins just four times last week, and the slot receiver has totaled just 69 receiving yards in his past three games combined. There looks to be too many negative variables in play to consider Hawkins a reliable fantasy option.

Hawkins (illness) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Hawkins should be fine for Sunday's game, but given that he is coming off a two-catch, seven-yard effort in Week 15, he's a speculative play in Johnny Manziel's second start at QB for the Browns.

Hawkins (illness) returned to practice Friday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Hawkins missed Thursday's practice with an illness, but he was back on the field Friday and should be fine for Sunday's matchup with the Panthers. He'll likely be listed as probable when the Browns release the official injury designations later in the day.
