Terrelle Pryor and Josh Gordon lined up at wide receiver for the Browns on a steamy, muggy Florida morning. They have the ability and potential to turn one of pro football’s least productive units into one that can at least find the end zone without using Google maps. Rookie Corey Coleman will eventually make it a threesome.
“They provide us with some opportunities to do some things that we like to do,” Jackson told reporters after practice. “Pryor, (Gordon), Corey, Hawk (WR Andrew Hawkins), we have a lot of good guys, a lot of different pieces that we can use. Those guys are just part of it. We have some other guys and we just have to keep getting better.”
Pryor and Gordon split wide with Coleman in the slot could be on the field at the same time on Aug. 26 when the Browns and Buccaneers meet in a preseason game, the story said. They can’t be together in the regular season until Oct. 9 when the Browns host New England because Gordon is suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the regular season. Pryor has been impressive this camp, making the transition from QB to WR, he seems to be overshadowing Coleman even. QB Robert Griffin III could benefit the most if this trio continues to shine once the regular season starts.
Terrelle Pryor’s transition to receiver is apparently going pretty well.
Via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns have issued their first training-camp depth chart. Pryor is listed as a starting receiver.
The story went on to say Josh Gordon does not have a spot on the depth chart, because he has yet to practice with the team. Even if Gordon climbs the ladder quickly, his four-game suspension puts Pryor currently on track to start in Week 1. Which is an impressive development for a guy who reluctantly gave up the quarterback position and embraced playing receiver. Also keep in mind, as we've said a few times today with the release of several teams' depth charts, these don't often mean a whole lot. But in this case, it looks like Pryor has made some progress at his new position.

The move was necessary because wide receivers Andrew Hawkins and Taylor Gabriel are out with concussions. Jennings, who wasn’t drafted last spring, had an impressive preseason and has been on the practice squad all season.

Browns WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion, out) and Andrew Hawkins (concussion, out) missed practice all week and are out for Week 13. Brian Hartline should once again see a ton of playing time (and targets) given the current state of the Browns’ receiving corps. He has 18 catches for 183 yards and two touchdowns (on 31 targets) in his last three games, and new starting QB Austin Davis targeted Hartline on five of his 10 pass attempts in Week 12.
