CLEVELAND, Ohio (92.3 The Fan) – The Browns activated receiver Jarvis Landry from injured reserve Thursday afternoon in time to play against the Broncos Thursday night.
Landry missed the previous three games due to a sprained MCL suffered in a Week 2 31-21 win over the Texans.
The return of Landry should provide the Browns offense with a much needed boost, depending how healthy he truly is.
Landry, who was designated to return from IR last Friday, was injured on the second offensive play against Houston when he was tackled following a 9-yard reception.
The five-time Pro Bowler has six catches for 80 yards in just over a game this season.
The Browns will be without quarterback Baker Mayfield as well as running backs Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt against Denver. Receiver Odell Beckham Jr., left tackle Jedrick Wills Jr., right tackle Jack Conklin are questionable for the game.
Beckham sprained his left shoulder in the second quarter against the Cardinals while Wills has been dealing with a sprained left ankle since Week 1 and Conklin a knee injury since the fourth quarter against the Chargers in Week 5.
The short week prevented Mayfield, who had been playing with a torn left larum and other damage in the shoulder, from playing Thursday night. He could return October 31 against the Steelers with additional time for the inflammation to go down after he dislocated the same left shoulder against the Cardinals Sunday.
The team also elevated quarterback Nick Mullens and cornerback Herb Miller from the practice squad in time for Thursday's game. Mullens will be active and back up Case Keenum.
