Wide receiver Chester Rogers

The Cleveland Browns host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday Night Football this week and they’ve added two players to the roster just in time to potentially have an impact.

Thursday, the Browns announced they had elevated tight end Miller Forristall and cornerback Chester Rogers to the active roster from the practice squad.

Forristall is a second-year player out of Alabama who originally signed with the Tennessee Titans as an undrafted free agent. After spending some time on the practice squad, he was waived in September 2021. The 24-year-old signed with the Browns practice squad later that month and was activated for two games last season before he was waived in December. He rejoined the team this offseason but was waived in August and signed to the practice squad until now.

Forristall will wear No. 86 for the Browns on Thursday.

Rogers is in his sixth year in the NFL, having entered the league out of Grambling State as an undrafted free agent with the Indianapolis Colts in 2016. He played for the Colts and Titans before signing with the Browns practice squad two weeks ago. In his NFL career, which includes 69 games and 24 starts, he has garnered 141 receptions, 1,522 yards, and six touchdowns.

Rogers will wear No. 83 for Cleveland.
