Stanton returned to the Browns' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction report. Stanton failed to record a stat across his 12 offensive and nine special-teams snaps. Should starting fullback Andy Janovich remain on the reserve/COVID-19 list, look for Stanton to get another start Sunday in Jacksonville.
Stanton has officially been promoted to the Browns' active roster, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Stanton has been called up from the practice squad to fill in for Andy Janovich (reserve/COVID-19 list) at fullback. It will mark his NFL debut. He is expected to primarily contribute as a blocker out of the backfield.
Stanton signed a reserve/future contract with the Browns on Tuesday. Stanton spent the part of the 2019 season on the Vikings' practice squad, but he never elevated to the active roster because C.J. Ham stayed healthy. The Browns have hired former Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski to be their head coach this year, and he utilized a fullback in Minnesota. Stanton is currently the only fullback on the Browns' roster.
The Vikings cut Stanton from their practice squad Tuesday. Stanton still hasn't suited up in a regular-season NFL game after injuring his knee during the 2018 preseason and landing on injured reserve. The 25-year-old fullback has been unable to get promoted after a couple weeks on the Vikings' practice squad, which is partially attributed to how well C.J. Ham has played.
Stanton was signed to the Vikings' practice squad Tuesday, the team's official site reports. A serious knee injury forced Stanton to spend the entirety of his 2018 campaign on IR, having been carted off the field during the Vikings' preseason tilt against the Jaguars last year. The former UNLV quarterback has since returned to full health and will rejoin the Vikings' organization as a member of the practice squad.
