Sept. 22, 2022




BEREA, Ohio — The Cleveland Browns have elevated TE Miller Forristall and WR Chester Rogers to the active roster from the practice squad.


Forristall is a first-year player out of Alabama. He appeared in two games as a rookie with the Browns in 2021 and spent the majority of his rookie season on the club’s practice squad. Forristall will wear No. 86.


Rogers is a sixth-year player from Grambling State. He entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the Colts in 2016. Over the course of Rogers’ career, he served stints with the Colts (2016-19), Titans (2020-21), and was signed to the Browns’ practice squad on Sept. 13. He has caught 141 passes for 1,522 yards and six touchdowns in 69 career games (24 starts). Rogers will wear No. 83.


*A club can carry up to 55 players on its roster during a given week by elevating one or two players from its practice squad prior to the transaction deadline that precedes the game. The rule allows teams a larger pool from which to select their 47 or 48 game-day active players. Any player elevated from the practice squad for this purpose will immediately revert to his team’s practice squad the day following the game.
