CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns announced Wednesday that they have designated safety Ronnie Harrison for return from injured reserve after placing him on the list for a shoulder injury he sustained in Week 12.

Harrison, who was looking forward to the game against his former team the Jacksonville Jaguars, injured his shoulder on the first play. He was placed in the injured reserve list on Dec. 1.

The Browns acquired Harrison in a trade with the Jaguars on Sept. 3 and in his time in Cleveland, Harrison has played in nine games with six starts, recording 31 tackles, six passes defended, an interception and a touchdown.

With the new rules this season, a player on injured reserve is able to return after missing only three games.

Harrison is now able to practice with the team and it comes at a potentially crucial time as the AFC North crown hangs in the balance and the Browns are still in the running for the division with a win over the New York Jets Sunday and a Pittsburgh Steelers loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

If those two things happen, the Week 17 matchup between the Browns and the Steelers would determine the division leader, and having Harrison on the field could be a game-changer.
