“Greg kind of refocused on some things, and I’m glad he’s having some success,” Shurmur said. “He doesn’t always catch the most balls, but he’s a tough sucker. He’s blocking and you feel his presence out there.
“He’s gotten away from doing some of the things that I don’t care for, so he’s listening. He wants to be a good player, he wants to be a good pro. … As for Josh Gordon being here, any time you have players that are competing to get better within your group, I think it helps.”

“I just don’t think that I’m going to have that type of issue,” Little said. “I’m seeing the ball a lot better, focusing on the ball instead of just running after the catch. That’s what you see oftentimes, that you’re so open that you’re ready to get that ball, and make a move that you just don’t secure the catch right away.”

"He's as far along as you can be as a rookie," HC Pat Shurmur said. "I'm happy with the progress so far. We got a chance to see him make some plays in preseason games. Now it's important for him to go out and do it in a regular-season game."
Mohamed Massaquoi will apparently get the start opposite of Little.

Browns rookie wide receiver Josh Gordon has often stopped short of finishing plays and lacked overall hustle during camp, but coach Pat Shurmur believes Gordon is turning the corner and giving more effort as of late.
“The last couple of days, he’s practicing faster in my mind, catching the ball and running with it instead of catching it and stopping,” Shurmur said. “He’s learning how to do it better in practice, and as we all know if you see it here, then it’ll translate to the game.
It's a good sign for the rest of the offense too. This young Browns team has a chance to put things together eventually this season with a rookie QB (Brandon Weeden), rookie RB (Trent Richardson) and second-year player in WR Greg Little. Little could be a nice value pick late in drafts while Gordon, who likely won't get drafted, is someone who could eventually be nabbed off waiver wires.
Browns officially name Weeden starting QB

Coach Pat Shurmur made the announcement here today following practice.
We rank Weeden just 26th, so he likely won't get drafted in standard leagues as he's just QB3 material. Weeden has some options to work with, but for the most part the WRs on the Browns are unproven, so this will be a growing process for everyone. Greg Little and Josh Gordon should be the starters at WR, but the team has already said the offense will go through rookie RB Trent Richardson.

Gordon already has established himself as the Browns’ most physically gifted pass-catcher. His combination of exceptional size, strength, and athleticism is mostly unmatched by any other receiver on the team. All he needs is to continue to work his way into football shape, having been out of the game for more than a year because of his suspension at and subsequent transfer from Baylor, and learn the Browns’ offense. Even when he doesn’t know exactly where he needs to go on a certain play, he is still able to do enough to get open and make a catch.
Benjamin has been a standout since camp began. He is using his remarkable speed to his fullest advantage, and is catching the ball well.

Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon, whom the Browns picked in the second round of the NFL’s supplemental draft July 12, worked with the first-team offense when it used three-receiver sets. Gordon and Mohamed Massaquoi lined up on the outside, and Greg Little moved to the slot.
