Facing a depth crunch along the offensive line due to several injuries, the Cleveland Browns brought back a familiar old name. The Browns signed lineman Anthony Fabiano to the active roster on Wednesday.

Fabiano has been with the Browns before. Back in 2016, he played in four games, starting one, as a rookie center out of Harvard. He’s also played for the Indianapolis Colts in 2017 and has spent time on several practice squads in the meantime. Fabiano spent the 2018 preseason with the Browns, too.

The team also activated linebacker B.J. Goodson from the reserve/COVID-19 list, which is a very welcome development to help bolster the defense. Goodson was the team’s leading tackler in the regular season despite missing the final two games. He was the first player to test positive for COVID-19 during the latest wave of infection.

Practice squad safety Elijah Benton was also activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list.
