The Cleveland Browns are working on getting their roster healthy and in shape for the second half of the season. With the Odell Beckham Jr. saga all but officially over (the team hasn’t waived him just yet), Cleveland can move on.

On Friday, the team designated defensive back M.J. Stewart for return from injured reserve and he returned to practice. He was placed on the injured reserve list on October 12th with a hamstring injury.

In five games this season playing both cornerback and safety, Stewart has 11 combined tackles while playing many of the special teams snaps.

Earlier this week, Cleveland also designated fullback Andy Janovich for return from injured reserve.

The Browns have three weeks to activate each player. The team waived fullback Johnny Stanton this week which indicates Janovich will be activated in time for Week 9’s game. With Stewart returning to practice on Friday, it is more likely he will be activated for Week 10’s game.
