The Cleveland Browns added depth to the offensive line on Saturday by promoting guard Michael Dunn to the active roster.

Cleveland needed some additional help along the offensive line after starting right guard Wyatt Teller was ruled out for Sunday night’s game against the New York Giants.

This is the fourth time this season that Dunn has been added to the game-day roster, but he has yet to take a snap on offense.

Dunn, who is 6-foot-5 and 307 pounds, was originally an undrafted free agent in 2017 who signed with Los Angeles Rams. He has spent time on the practice squads of the Rams and Jacksonville Jaguars, and also was in camp with the Miami Dolphins in 2019. He also spent time in both the AAF and XFL.

The Teller injury was a bit of a surprise this week. He quietly missed a handful of offensive snaps against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night before popping up on the injury list with an ankle injury.

Head coach Kevin Stefanski has been customarily vague about the nature of Teller’s injury all week, other than to say that Teller is “week to week” as the Browns look to secure their first playoff appearance since 2002.

Veteran Chris Hubbard will once again fill Teller’s void on Sunday just as he did earlier in the season when Teller missed three games with a calf injury.
