Given the number of injuries that the Cleveland Browns have been dealing with including four players ruled out for Week 15 versus the Chicago Bears, GM Andrew Berry might wish they could elevate half of their practice squad. From Week 14, the Browns will be without:
- OL Dawand Jones (inactive last week)
- S Grant Delpit
- DT Maurice Hurst
- S Juan Thornhill
- DE Ogbo Okoronkwo
- OL Ethan Pocic
- LB Jordan Kunaszyk
Three players, Denzel Ward, Anthony Walker and Jordan Elliott are also questionable for the game.
Saturday, Cleveland elevated S Tanner McCalister and LB Charlie Thomas III to help fill in for Thornhill and Kunaszyk. McCalister was undrafted out of The Ohio State Buckeyes while Thomas was undrafted from Georgia Tech this year.
Thomas played in one game for the Browns this year with all of his 18 snaps coming on special teams. McCalister also has one game to his name this year with four snaps on special teams.
