By  | 

The Cleveland Browns have signed DB Jeremiah McKinnon from the club’s practice squad and placed DB Terrance Mitchell (wrist) on injured reserve.*

McKinnon is 5-11, 192 pounds and officially in his first NFL season out of Florida International. Originally signed by Dallas as an undrafted free agent in 2016, McKinnon spent the first four weeks this season on the Browns’ practice squad. He has also spent time on the Titans’ (2016) and Giants’ (2017) practice squads. He is a native of Miami, Fla.

Mitchell, who joined the Browns as an unrestricted free agent this year, started each of the first four games this season. He recorded 19 tackles, one interception, three passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He fractured his wrist in the second quarter at Oakland.

*Each team can designate two players to return from injured reserve. Designation does not need to be made until that player is able to return to practice. A player placed on injured reserve is eligible to return to practice in six weeks and must miss a minimum of eight games.
