The Browns were busy getting the dilapidated roster back up as strong as possible for Sunday’s game in Pittsburgh. Aside from activating three players from the reserve/COVID-19 list, the team also elevated three players from the practice squad to the active roster for the wild-card game against the Steelers.

WR Ja’Marcus Bradley, CB A.J. Green and OT Alex Taylor were all elevated on Saturday. Green was designated as a COVID-19 replacement, while Taylor and Bradley were deemed standard elevations.

That doesn’t seem like good news for Denzel Ward to play. Ward is the only cornerback on the reserve/COVID-19 list, and the protocols for elevation dictate a player designated as a COVID-19 replacement must directly fill a hole created by someone on the reserve list.

There was some additional good news. Safety Jovante Moffatt was cleared from being a close contact to an infected person and was reactivated.

In addition to the elevations, the Browns also released DL Joey Ivie from the practice squad.
