  • JoJo Natson: Cut from Browns' practice squad

    Natson was cut by the Browns on Tuesday.

    The wide receiver was reinstated from the practice squad COVID list last week prior to being cut Tuesday. In three games with the Browns this season, Natson mostly operated as return specialist while failing to draw a target over 10 offensive snaps.

  • JoJo Natson: Returns from COVID protocols

    The Browns restored Natson to the practice squad from the practice squad COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    Natson can thus resume participating in practice squad activities heading into Saturday's road matchup against the Packers. Across Natson's three appearances this season, he was not targeted but contributed in the return game.

  • JoJo Natson: Placed in COVID protocols

    Natson was placed on the Browns' practice squad COVID-19 list Tuesday.

    Natson was one of eight Browns players to test positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Natson reverted to the practice squad Monday after appearing in the Browns' Week 14 win over the Ravens, where he totaled 36 combined yards on kick and punt returns.

  • JoJo Natson: Reverts to practice squad

    Natson reverted to Cleveland's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Natson was elevated prior to the Browns' matchup against Baltimore. He's now been active for three of the team's last four games, but he has logged a combined 10 offensive snaps across those contests. However, he did serve a significant role on special teams, recording three punt returns for 15 yards and one kick for 21 yards in the team's Week 14 win.

  • Browns' JoJo Natson: Back on Browns' roster

    Natson has been elevated to the Browns' 53-man roster ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Ravens, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Fellow wideout Ja'Marcus Bradley was waived Saturday, so now Natson will be one of four healthy receivers going into Sunday's contest. The other three include Jarvis Landry, Donovan Peoples-Jones and Rashard Higgins. Thus, Natson figures to have some opportunities to see the field.

  • JoJo Natson: Back to practice squad

    Natson reverted to Cleveland's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Natson returned one kickoff for 16 yards and played two offensive snaps during Sunday's loss to the Ravens, but he wasn't targeted. The Browns can freely elevate Natson for one more contest this season before having to decide whether to keep him on the active roster.

  • Browns' JoJo Natson: Minor run on offense

    Natson did not see any targets on two offensive snaps and returned one kickoff for 15 yards in Sunday's 16-10 loss to the Ravens.

    Natson was on the gameday roster with Anthony Schwartz (concussion) and Rashard Higgins both inactive, the latter due to a coach's decision. Natson's settled into kick-return duties with Schwartz sidelined, and it's unclear if he takes up an active roster spot when the rookie gets healthy. The Browns are off Week 13 and will resume play the following week against Baltimore.

  • Browns' JoJo Natson: Elevated for Sunday

    Natson was elevated from the Browns' practice squad to the active roster for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    The 27-year-old was also elevated to the active roster Week 10 and played seven offensive snaps while also operating as a return man. The 27-year-old should fill a similar role Sunday with Anthony Schwartz (concussion) out and Donovan Peoples-Jones (groin) questionable.

  • JoJo Natson: Goes back to practice squad

    Naton has reverted back to the Browns' practice squad, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Natson contributed on kick return duties Sunday against New England, totaling 72 yards on three chances. He'll now go back to the practice squad and try to earn another chance to be activated for game day.

  • Browns' JoJo Natson: Joins active roster

    Natson has been elevated to the Browns' active roster, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Natson has spent the season on Cleveland's practice squad and will now get to suit up for the first time. He slots in as the No. 6 wideout, so his most likely area of contribution figures to be on special teams.

  • JoJo Natson: Heads back to Cleveland

    Natson was signed to the Browns' practice squad Wednesday.

    Natson was beat out for return duties by 2021 sixth-round draft pick Demetric Felton during training camp, but he rejoins the Browns a day after being cut. Cleveland also resigned wideout Ja'Marcus Bradley, giving them two receivers with experience in the system who can step in if Rashard Higgins' leg injury lingers, or if the time missed by rookie Anthony Schwartz during preseason with a knee injury stunted his development.

  • JoJo Natson: Exits Cleveland

    Natson was waived by Browns on Monday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Natson was listed as the Browns' primary return man prior to this move, rendering it somewhat surprising. His exit paves the way for Donovan Peoples-Jones and D'Ernest Johnson to compete for both punt- and kick-return opportunities. Natson, who spent the two previous seasons with the Rams, is now set to look for a new landing spot.

  • Browns' JoJo Natson: Listed as primary returner

    Natson is listed as the top punt and kick returner on Cleveland's unofficial depth chart heading into preseason Week 1 against Jacksonville on Saturday.

    Natson is among a group of players competing for the return job, so nothing is settled yet. Ideally, the Browns would have a returner that fills another role, but Natson is on the outside of the top five at wide receiver. The competition will play out over the preseason.

  • Browns' JoJo Natson: Knee injury's in rearview mirror

    Natson worked as a punt returner in Cleveland's first practice Wednesday, showing that he's recovered from his knee injury, Zac Jackson of The Athletic reports.

    Natson tore his ACL in Week 3 of the 2020 season but has regained health. His role on offense has been nearly nonexistent in recent years, so Natson's ticket to a roster spot will be winning the punt returner job on special teams.

  • Browns' JoJo Natson: Signs deal with Browns

    Natson (knee) signed a one-year deal with Cleveland on Thursday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Natson played in just three games with the Browns during the 2020 season before suffering a torn ACL in Week 3. The 5-foot-7, 153-pounder hasn't logged a target since 2017, when he caught two receptions for 18 yards with the Jets. With Cleveland's receiving corps crowded, the 27-year-old will likely continue his role as a returner for the team in 2021, assuming a full recovery from his knee injury.

  • Browns' JoJo Natson: Season-ending injury

    Natson suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's 34-20 win over Washington, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Natson's season is over, and he'll be placed on injured reserve soon. He mainly just contributes as a returner, so Donovan Peoples-Jones and D'Ernest Johnson will likely battle for that role.
