The Cleveland Browns continue to make a variety of moves in advance of their Week 8 showdown with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Head coach Kevin Stefanski announced the QB Baker Mayfield would return after missing a week. RB Nick Chubb and RT Jack Conklin have been cleared from any injury designation and will return while three have been ruled out for the game.

The Browns also announced that run game coordinator and running backs coach Stump Mitchell will not coach on Sunday due to a previous knee issue. The team reported that he will be out indefinitely at this time. Ryan Cordell will take over the running backs and Kevin Rogers will assist with Mitchell’s other roles.

The team also signed cornerback Herb Miller to the active roster and designated center Nick Harris for return from injured reserve. As we noted yesterday, OL Alex Taylor was waived to make room for Miller.

Miller has been called up from the Browns practice squad in each of the last two weeks and played snaps on special teams. With Denzel Ward out for Week 8 and AJ Green questionable, Miller may need to play on defense as well against the Steelers on Halloween.

The Browns now have three weeks to activate Harris from injured reserve but will have to clear a roster spot for him when they do so. He is unlikely to be activated ahead of this week’s game.
