Browns activate cornerback Mitchell from injured reserve
Cleveland made the move Saturday, enabling Mitchell to be available for Sunday’s game against Carolina. The Browns need Mitchell because rookie cornerback Denzel Ward is out with a concussion suffered last week at Houston.
The 26-year-old Mitchell broke his wrist making a tackle on Sept. 30 against Oakland. He started Cleveland’s first four games opposite Ward before getting hurt.
The Browns placed tight end Pharaoh Brown on injured reserve to open a roster spot for Mitchell, who signed with Cleveland as a free agent in March after two seasons with Kansas City.
Defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi is expected to play Sunday despite a biceps injury that initially appeared serious.
