Glenn Winston , who did not play Week 17 due to a concussion, finished the season with one rushing attempt for a loss of eight yards.
To make matters worse, that single attempt resulted in Winston losing a fumble. The 26-year-old back was active for three games this season, primarily to provide an emergency option behind Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson following the release of Robert Turbin. Winston is on a team-friendly contract for another season, one in which he'll likely serve a similar role.
Glenn Winston (knee) will be activated from the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list this week, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Winston returned to practice in late October, and it appears he is ready for game action after a couple weeks of practice. The Cleveland Browns cleared the road for him to return by waiving fellow running back Robert Turbin on Tuesday. Head coach Mike Pettine has been impressed by Winston's work in practice, but Winston will slot in as the third running back on the Browns' depth chart, and will have to earn a regular role in the offense.
Glenn Winston (knee) -- who is one the Cleveland Browns ' non-football injury list -- returned to practice Wednesday, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Winston, who underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on Aug. 6, is eligible to play as soon as this coming weekend. He will now need to be activated by the team within three weeks, or else he'll remain on the team's reserve list for the rest of the season.
