Mike Harley: Waived by Cleveland
Harley was waived by the Browns on Tuesday, Christopher Dellecese of Cleveland 19 News reports.

Browns' Mike Harley: Hauls in TD
Harley caught one of three targets for 20 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason game against Washington.
All of Harley's activity came in the fourth quarter, which gives an indication of where he's at on the wideout depth chart. The Browns are dealing with injuries at wideout, including projected starter Elijah Moore, who sustained a rib injury Friday, which boosts Harley's chances of sticking with the team. At this point, his main competition is David Bell, Jaelon Darden (leg), Jakeem Grant, Anthony Schwartz and Austin Watkins.... See More ... See Less
Browns' Mike Harley: Two catches in HOF Game
Harley (head) caught two of four targets for 18 yards in Thursday's 21-16 preseason win over the Jets.
Harley suited up for 39 snaps, which suggests he has fully recovered after being placed in concussion protocol in July. He spent the 2022 season on Cleveland's practice squad. Harley's chances of making the roster may have gotten a slight boost with the news that fellow wide receiver Daylen Baldwin (hamstring) is expected to miss significant time, but Harley remains a long shot to make the team....

Harley (head) returned to the field Tuesday for practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Browns' Mike Harley: In concussion protocol
Harley hasn't practiced since Thursday after leaving camp early and has been in concussion protocol, Zac Jackson of The Athletic reports.
Harley spent time on Cleveland's practice squad after signing with the team as an undrafted free agent in 2022. The Miami product has yet to touch the field in the NFL, so once he's healthy, he'll most likely be competing for a depth role in the team's wide receiver room or even practice squad ahead of the coming season....

Mike Harley: Winds up on Browns' practice squad
Harley was signed to the Browns' practice squad Wednesday.
The Browns were happy to see Harley clear waivers, as he enjoyed a strong camp as both a wide receiver and return man. The 24-year-old Harley could be elevated to the main roster later in the season if Cleveland's in need of depth on offense or a spark on special teams.... See More ... See Less
Mike Harley: Cut by Cleveland
The Browns will waive Harley on Tuesday, Josina Anderson of CBS Sports reports.
Harley impressed during training camp when several receivers went down with injuries, and he was used as a returner during preseason action. The Browns would be very interested in adding him to the practice squad, if Harley clears waivers. His dismissal suggests sixth-round draft pick Michael Woods (hamstring) will make the team and possibly be ready to go for Week 1 against Carolina. The Browns also have hybrid running back/receiver Demetric Felton to fill out the depth chart at wideout.... See More ... See Less
Browns' Mike Harley: Gets chance as returner
Harley caught three of seven targets for 30 yards and returned one kickoff for 19 yards in Sunday's preseason game against the Eagles.
It was a showcase day for Harley, who was on the field for 61 of Cleveland's 74 snaps and the latest to audition for the vacant return job. He lined up as a punt returner but did not get an opportunity to return one. Since Jakeem Grant went down with an Achilles injury, Ja'Marcus Bradley and now Harley have been given chances to return kicks and punts during preseason action. Others in camp that could pick up a return role are Demetric Felton and Donovan Peoples-Jones. As for Harley's chances at wideout, the undrafted free agent out the University of Miami is a long shot and more likely headed for the practice squad.... See More ... See Less
Browns' Mike Harley: Returns to practice
Harley (ankle) was back at practice Tuesday after leaving the previous day's session early, Anthony Poisal of the Browns' official site reports.
Harley walked off the field Monday accompanied by team training staff, but the absence was a short one. As a testament to the ankle being fine, during Tuesday's session, Harley made a nice leaping catch over cornerback Parnell Motley, but the receiver's feet landed out of bounds. He's in a battle for the fifth wideout job, as the Browns prepare for two days of joint practice with Eagles leading up to Sunday's preseason matchup between the two teams.... See More ... See Less
Browns' Mike Harley: Suffers ankle injury
Harley walked off the practice field Monday accompanied by a trainer due to an ankle injury, Chris Easterling of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Harley made inroads during training camp due to injuries to several wideouts but now finds himself on the sideline. The undrafted rookie played 30 snaps and was not targeted in the Browns' preseason opener against the Jaguars last Friday.... See More ... See Less
Browns' Mike Harley: Injury creates opporutnity
Harley's path to a roster spot improved after Jakeem Grant suffered an Achilles injury during Tuesday's practice, Zac Jackson of The Athletic reports.
In addition to Grant's injury, which is feared to be a torn Achilles, sixth-round draft pick Michael Woods will miss time due to a hamstring injury, creating reps and opportunities for receivers like Harley further down the depth chart. Harley is a undrafted free agent out Miami (Fla.) that gained kickoff return experience during his time in college. Since Grant was slated to serve as the club's primary return man on both kickoffs and punts, Harley should be among the many players the Browns audition for either role during the preseason....
