CLEVELAND – A tight-end from Jamestown on the Cleveland Browns practice squad, was promoted to the 53-man active roster on Friday due to injuries on the team’s tight-end depth.
Stephen Carlson, a Jamestown High School and Princeton University graduate’s promotion comes due to tight-end Pharaoh Brown landing in concussion protocol on Thursday.
David Njoku, Cleveland’s number one tight-end, has been on injured reserve since the second game of the season due to a broken wrist.
With the addition of Carlson, Cleveland will have three active tight-ends for their game vs. the Denver Broncos on Sunday, which includes Demetrius Harris and Ricky Seals-Jones.
Carlson was undrafted in the 2019 NFL Draft when Cleveland signed him in free agency, and was on the team’s practice-squad since September prior to his promotion.
