The Browns promoted Callaway to the starting offense on Monday, ESPN reported. Cleveland selected Callaway in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL draft, following a string of off-the-field issues during his college career.

Callaway tested positive for a diluted drug test sample at the NFL combine in April.

At Florida, Callaway was suspended from team activities during the spring semester in 2016 after a woman accused him of sexual assault. He was found not responsible at a hearing last August and placed back on the team before being suspended for the 2017 season after being one of nine Florida players who allegedly used stolen credit card information to fund bookstore accounts.

He was also cited for marijuana possession in May last year and pleaded no contest to possession of drug paraphernalia.

The Browns open preseason play on Thursday against the Giants.
