  • Ryan Switzer: Announces retirement

  • Ryan Switzer: Gets tryout

    Switzer (foot) received a tryout with the Panthers on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Switzer signed a one-year deal with the Browns last offseason, but he suffered a foot injury during training camp that required surgery, and he never saw the field. Switzer last played in 2019 with the Steelers, appearing in nine games and making eight catches on 11 targets for 27 yards. The 2017 fourth-round selection will continue working to earn a shot at a comeback somewhere next season.

  • Ryan Switzer: Back from COVID-19 list

    The Browns activated Switzer (undisclosed) from the practice squad/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Switzer will now be eligible to rejoin teammates at the Browns' facilities. If any of Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge are unable to come off the COVID-19 list Week 17, it's possible that Switzer could be called up to the active roster.

  • Ryan Switzer: Shifts to COVID-19 list

    The Browns placed Switzer on the practice squad COVID-19 list Thursday.

    Switzer either tested positive for the virus or came into close contact with an infected person. He'll be required to clear the league's COVID-19 protocols before returning to the Browns' scout team.

  • Ryan Switzer: Removed from practice squad IR

    The Browns restored Switzer (undisclosed) from the practice squad injured list Tuesday.

    Switzer was placed on the list in early November. The Browns currently have three wide receivers on injured reserve, and KhaDarel Hodge (hamstring) is questionable heading into Week 14, so Switzer could be in line for a promotion before the season ends.

  • Ryan Switzer: Joins Browns' practice squad

    The Browns signed Switzer to the practice squad Thursday.

    Switzer spent the last two years in Pittsburgh, and he'll now remain in the division as an emergency wideout option for the Browns. He also boasts significant experience as a return man, something Cleveland can use in the wake of losing JoJo Natson (torn ACL) for the season.

  • Ryan Switzer: Checks out Cleveland

    The Browns hosted Switzer (foot) for a visit Tuesday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Switzer was waived by the Steelers with an injury tag before rosters were finalized, but it appears he's healthy and ready to find a new team. The 25-year-old played nine games last year and caught eight of 11 targets for 27 yards, but he has plenty of experience as a kick and punt returner. That could come in handy for the Browns with JoJo Natson (torn ACL) done for the season.

  • Ryan Switzer: Cast aside by Steelers

    Switzer (foot) was waived by the Steelers on Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    The Steelers could try to bring back Switzer with some injury-related roster shenanigans, but for the moment he'll pass through waivers. The selection of Chase Claypool in the 2020 NFL Draft and emergence of castaway Ray-Ray McCloud made Switzer's skillset expendable, although his status as a 2017 fourth-round pick likely will secure, at minimum, a practice squad spot down the road.

  • Steelers' Ryan Switzer: Still not practicing

    Head coach Mike Tomlin said Switzer (foot) is day-to-day after missing Friday's practice, Tribune-Review Sports reports.

    Switzer sustained the injury during Tuesday's practice and hasn't made it back onto the field yet, but Tomlin doesn't seem too concerned. The 25-year-old should return soon, but most of his contributions this year will be as a returner since the Steelers selected receiver Chase Claypool in the second round of April's draft.

  • Steelers' Ryan Switzer: Injures foot Tuesday

    Switzer suffered a foot injury at Tuesday's practice, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports.

    Switzer did not return to practice after suffering the injury. Health permitting, Switzer looks primed to serve as a depth receiver and contributor in the return games for Pittsburgh.

  • Steelers' Ryan Switzer: Remains in good roster position

    Switzer is in a solid position to retain his spot on the Steelers' season-opening roster, Chris Adamski of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

    The 25-year-old caught eight passes for 27 yards and appeared in only eight games last season due to a back injury, but the trust he's earned from the team gives him an edge for a roster spot. Switzer has primarily worked as a returner and will likely fill a similar role, assuming he remains with the team.
