Browns elevating TE Miller Forristall, WR Chester Rogers from Practice Squad vs. Steelers

The Cleveland Browns are activating tight end Miller Forristall and wide receiver Chester Rogers from the Practice Squad for their Thursday night showdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers. After placing tight end Jesse James on Injured Reserve this week, the elevation of Forristall felt inevitable on a short week.

Rogers, however, signed after the Week 1 mistakes of Demetric Felton as a punt returner, makes his first appearance with the team. There is a reasonable chance Rogers could find himself back deep in the return game tonight as special teams continue to be a weak spot of the team.

The countdown to kickoff begins.
