CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns made several roster moves Saturday, including activating one player and then downgrading him shortly after.

The team elevated wide receiver Ja’Marcus Bradley to the active roster from the practice squad ahead of Sunday’s game against the Titans.

With wide receivers KhaDarel Hodge (hamstring) and Taywan Taylor (neck) ruled out for Sunday’s game, the Browns were down to just three active receivers—Jarvis Landry, Donovan Peoples-Jones and Rashard Higgins.

Bradley and wide receiver Derrick Willies were both options to be elevated from the practice squad to help provide depth to the active roster, but Bradley made the final cut.

The 6-foot-1, 198 pound receiver has been a member of the practice squad since Week 1 of this season. Bradley is an undrafted rookie out of Louisiana-Lafayette, where he played in 52 games, recording 2,359 receiving yards on 160 passes with 23 touchdowns. He also returned 24 kickoffs for 474 yards.

Bradley will wear No. 84 for the Browns.

In addition to elevating Bradley, the Browns also activated newly acquired safety Tedric Thompson, who was claimed on waivers from the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday, from the exempt list, a spot allowed to the team while they waited for him to join in accordance with COVID-19 testing protocols.

However, shortly after activating him from the exempt list, the Browns downgraded Thompson to out for Sunday’s game.

Since Thompson has been on the exempt list, he has been unable to practice for the entire week since being claimed.
