Browns elevate Jordan Kunasyzk, Roderick Perry from practice squad

Another Saturday, another round of practice-squad elevations.

A day before their home opener, the Browns have promoted linebacker Jordan Kunaszyk and defensive tackle Roderick Perry II to the active roster from the practice squad. It’s part of the weekly ability of all teams to bump two players per week from the practice squad for a given game.

There’s no specific injury reason for these two players to be elevated. Perry fills the spot potentially created by a decision to sit rookie defensive tackle Perrion Winfrey for disciplinary reasons. Winfrey was held out of practice on Friday. It’s unclear whether he’ll play.

Kunaszyk was elevated last week, too. After three regular-season elevations, he’ll have to pass through waivers on his way back to the practice squad.

While on the practice squad, of course, Kunaszyk can sign with the active roster any team he wants, with a limited exception. Although practice-squad protections are gone for 2022, a team can’t sign a player from an opponent’s practice squad six days before playing them, 10 days if the player’s team has a bye before the game.

The Browns host the Jets on Sunday. A win by Cleveland will send the Browns to 2-0 for the first time since 1993. But since that’s actually the Ravens, these Browns have never been 2-0.

  1. This can help players that in the past would just get stuck on the practice squad gain visibility from other teams to land and get their shot. This is great thing the Browns are doing for these young players.

  2. Your comment “But since that’s actually the Ravens, these Browns have never been 2-0.”, is not true if I recall correctly.
    When the Browns were moved / stolen by Art Modell (rhymes with rot in hell) the NFL allowed Cleveland to retain their colors, their history and a few other things. If so, it was the Browns, not the Ravens prior to the move, right?
