The Cleveland Browns activated right guard Wyatt Teller from the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Sunday.
That means the starting offensive line will be intact when the 9-3 Browns host the 7-5 Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football.

Teller was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on December 8 after he was found to be a close contact of someone outside of the team who tested positive. The hope was that Teller would continue to test negative in time to rejoin the Browns for the game against the Ravens, so today’s news is good.
Teller, who is Pro Football Focus’ top-ranked guard, missed three games earlier in the season while dealing with a calf injury. Teller’s absence coincided with running back Nick Chubb being on injured reserve, which temporarily stalled Cleveland’s top-ranked rushing attack.
Since welcoming Teller and Chubb back to the lineup in Week 10 against the Houston Texans, the Browns have ripped off four consecutive wins while rushing for 693 yards and averaging 4.62 yards per carry.
In a corresponding roster move, the Browns released running back Dontrell Hilliard, who was in his third season with the Browns.
During his tenure in Cleveland, Hilliard appeared in 30 games, rushing for 97 yards and two touchdowns, catching 22 passes for 199 yards, and returning 45 combined kickoffs and punts for 813 combined yards.
