Hawkins (hamstring) caught his lone target for a two-yard gain in Friday's preseason game against Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

With Josh Gordon (suspension), Corey Coleman (hamstring) and Terrelle Pryor all available, Hawkins essentially served as the No. 4 wide receiver, though he still got plenty of snaps on the first-team offense. Hawkins figures to open the year working from the slot in three-wide sets, but his snaps may eventually come into question when Gordon returns from a suspension in Week 5.

Hawkins (hamstring) practices on Sunday, ESPN's Tony Grossi reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hawkins did not play in either of the Browns' first two preseason games with a lingering hamstring strain. He's expected to make the Browns' final roster, but, now back in the fold, will fight for pecking order amongst the team's crowded wideout corps.

Hawkins (hamstring) is slated to sit Thursday's preseason game against the Falcons, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hawkins has been hampered by a hamstring injury since the first week of training camp and joins a long list of Cleveland Browns sitting out Thursday's game. There is no indication that Hawkins' ailment is anything to worry about in the long term, and once the season rolls around he should be getting plenty of looks in the slot. Expect Terrell Pryor, Gabriel Taylor, and Marlon Moore, if he plays, to receive additional looks at wide receiver with Hawkins sidelined.

Hawkins (hamstring) has been ruled out of Friday's preseason opener versus the Packers, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hawkins tweaked his left hamstring roughly a week ago during practice and has been limited ever since. Along with fellow wide receiver Corey Coleman (hamstring), Hawkins will sit out the team's preseason opener, but the injury isn't expected to keep him out for an extended period of time, so look for a return to practice in the near future. Coleman and Terrelle Pryor were listed as the team's starting wideouts on the Browns' first unofficial depth chart, so Hawkins looks to be battling for targets with the second unit.

Hawkins tweaked his left hamstring during Tuesday's training camp session, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The severity of the "tweak" is unknown, but the 30-year-old Hawkins will need to quickly retake the field if he wants to secure a roster spot. The Browns currently employ 12 wide receivers, and half of them could conceivably find themselves on the chopping block when it comes time to trim the depth chart in advance of the regular season.

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

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.

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.

The Browns placed Hawkins (concussion) on injured reserve Wednesday.

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.

Hawkins (concussion) won't play Sunday against the Seahawks, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Browns have not shut Hawkins down for the season at this stage, which suggests that the team is holding out some hope that wideout could returmn to the field in either Week 16 or 17.
