NFL: Cleveland Browns at Detroit Lions Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

Cleveland Browns:

  • John Dorsey has put his stamp on the Browns (ohio.com) - Wandering around Berea, where the resident NFL team has practiced epic losing, wondering how the 4-44 Browns of 2015-17 get anywhere soon comes as easily as a late-summer breeze. It is easy, that is, until one encounters the rock-jawed man who has taken over the main controls, re-inventing everything but himself. John Dorsey has so blown away the roster and the language that one gropes even to begin guessing what to think.
  • Heading to Sunday’s game? Bring a rain poncho (wkyc.com) - If you’re heading to the Muni Lot or FirstEnergy Stadium Sunday, bring your rain poncho. And maybe some waders. It’s going to be an interesting weather weekend.

NFL:

  • Wide receiver Max McCaffrey suspended four games (PFT) - Free agent wide receiver Max McCaffrey currently doesn’t have a team, but even if he finds one he won’t be able to play until Week Five.
  • Week 1 injuries: Joey Bosa out for Chargers (CBS Sports) - Most teams head into Week 1 relatively healthy after spending much of the preseason resting their key players, but the Giants and Chargers are two teams that will have to deal with a big absence Sunday. For the Chargers, Joey Bosa has been ruled out after showing up to practice Friday in a walking boot. He suffered the injury during a practice early in the preseason and has been sidelined for about a month as he recovers, though the defender was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday.
  • Falcons lose Keanu Neal for season with torn ACL (atlantafalcons.com) - The Falcons announced Friday that starting safety Keanu Neal will miss the remainder of the 2018 season after suffering a knee injury in the loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night.
  • Le’Veon Bell shows limit of player solidarity (slate.com) - One of the best players in the NFL is going through some workplace drama. Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell wants a new long-term contract, something the team has been unwilling to offer. As a result, Bell skipped training camp, and his absence has carried through this week’s practices and team meetings. Barring a sudden change of heart from either party, Bell will not suit up for the Steelers’ first game, which comes against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
