The Cleveland Browns were highly active Saturday morning. As Kevin Stefanski shared yesterday, the team officially activated Kareem Hunt and Jack Conklin from the injured reserve.

Conklin will slide back into his starting right tackle spot while Hunt’s important role behind Nick Chubb and in the passing game is vital to the offense.

In corresponding moves, the team has waived OL Hjalte Froholdt and DE Joe Jackson to make room for Conklin and Hunt. Both players could return to the team’s practice squad if they clear waivers.

With Anthony Schwartz the lone player listed as out on the final injury report, the team has once again elevated JoJo Natson to help with kick returns. With Jackson waived, the team elevated DE Porter Gustin for the second week in a row to help on the edge. The team will also get Takk McKinley back after missing games with a groin injury.

Cleveland is as close to full health as they have been in many weeks going into Week 12 then have their bye week to continue healing up. Given the importance of their back-to-back games with the Ravens, on either side of their bye, health is coming at a very important time.
