The Cleveland Browns elevated two offensive players from the practice squad to the active roster for Sunday’s AFC divisional round game in Kansas City. Offensive tackle Alex Taylor and tight end Kyle Markway were elevated to face the Chiefs.

Both Taylor and Markway are standard elevations from the practice squad. In recent weeks the Browns have used the COVID-19 elevation, which is different. With all the Browns players off the reserve/COVID-19 list after left guard Joel Bitonio was activated on Friday, there is no need for those this week.

The elevations come at positions where the Browns have some injury concerns. Right tackle Jack Conklin is questionable with a knee/hamstring injury, and normal backup tackle Chris Hubbard is on injured reserve. That leaves only Kendall Lamm in reserve prior to elevating Taylor. Two tight ends, David Njoku and Stephen Carlson, are also questionable for Sunday’s game.
