PAndrew Hawkins WR CLE 4 weeks ago

Hawkins (concussion) took part in April minicamp, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Hawkins missed eight games due to a pair of concussions last season, ultimately landing on injured reserve for the final two weeks. He should be back in the mix for a key role out of the slot, though the Browns did add possible competition for snaps, selecting four wide receivers in the recent draft. Meanwhile, Robert Griffin and Josh McCown are expected to compete for the starting quarterback job.

Hawkins (concussion) finished the year with 27 catches for 276 yards. He missed eight games after sustaining multiple concussions.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Hawkins saw three or more targets in each of the team's first seven games before sustaining his first concussion. The slot receiver then sat the next two contests before returning for his best game of the year Week 10 against Pittsburgh, where he caught seven passes for 69 yards before sustaining yet another concussion. He'll presumably be cleared from concussion protocol for the start of the 2016 season, where Hawkins will remain under contract with the organization. The veteran will compete to earn back a starting job as a slot receiver next year.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Hawkins has been sidelined since suffering his second concussion of the season Nov. 15, and the Browns ultimately decided to place him on injured reserve, which ends his season. Hawkins started all eight games he played in this year and is not due a hefty salary in 2016, so chances are he remains with the Browns next season.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Beyond Week 14, Hawkins is viewed as a candidate for IR, and if that move ends up being made, the wideout would finish up the 2015 season with a 27/276/0 line through eight games.

Hawkins (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Hawkins has been sidelined since mid-November, and his status for the remainder of the season is questionable at best as the struggling Browns may opt to shut him down until next season. At this rate it appears he won't likely be on the field for the team's Week 14 matchup against the 49ers.

Hawkins remains in the league's concussion protocol, and thus he will remain on the sideline for at least one more game. The Browns are considering placing Hawkins on injured reserve if he does not show improvement in the near future, so it's unclear if he will play again this season.

In any case, Hawkins -- who did not practice Thursday -- is expected to miss Sunday's game against the Bengals, and given that the wideout has sustained two concussions this season, the 2-9 Browns are evidently contemplating shutting Hawkins down.
