The Cleveland Browns continued the offensive line churn on Monday, signing offensive lineman Anthony Fabiano to the active roster from the team’s practice squad. In a related move, the Browns signed offensive lineman Zach Sterup to the practice squad after seeing the Carolina Panthers sign offensive lineman Dan France off of Cleveland’s practice squad.
The Browns haven’t named a starting quarterback for Sunday’s home game against the Cincinnati Bengals, but Robert Griffin III spoke Monday as if he expects to receive the nod. All signs continue to point to Griffin completing his comeback from a broken left shoulder this weekend.

And even if they did, just as they surged at the end last season, how much would it matter?
