  • Johnny Stanton: Placed on COVID-19 list

    Stanton was placed on the practice squad COVID-19 list Monday.

    Stanton was called upon to provide depth to the running back position earlier this season, but he's now back on the practice squad and is also expected to be held out of practices on a short-term basis. The Browns are on a bye this week, though, and their next game will be against the Ravens on Dec. 12.

  • Johnny Stanton: Reverts to practice squad

    Stanton reverted to the Browns' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Stanton was called upon to provide depth to the Browns' backfield with Nick Chubb, Demetric Felton and John Kelly all on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Kareem Hunt has also been out with a calf injury. Depending on who is available for the Browns in Week 11, Stanton may get another shot on the active roster.

  • Browns' Johnny Stanton: Active for Week 10

    Stanton had one carry for zero yards in Sunday's 45-7 loss to New England.

    Stanton was elevated to the active roster amid a COVID-19 outbreak in the running back room. His lone carry came on the first series -- the Browns' lone scoring drive -- when he took a direct snap at the 2-yard line and was snuffed out by the Patriots' defense. That was Stanton's only snap on offense. Stanton's presence on the active roster depends on the health and availability of Nick Chubb (illness), Demetric Felton (illness), Kareem Hunt (calf) and John Kelly (illness).

  • Johnny Stanton: Rejoins practice squad

    Stanton was signed to the Browns' practice squad Thursday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Stanton was waived by the Browns on Tuesday but will remain in the organization after clearing waivers. He had a minimal role while filling in for Andy Janovich (hamstring) across the last few weeks.

  • Johnny Stanton: Waived by Cleveland

    Stanton was waived by the Browns on Tuesday, according to Brad Stainbrook of the Orange and Brown report.

    Assuming he clears waivers, Stanton is expected to rejoin Cleveland as a member of the practice squad. The fullback had been filling in for Andy Janovich (hamstring) and scored his first career touchdown during the Browns' Week 7 win over the Broncos. Janovich is eligible to return from injured reserve ahead of Week 9, so waiving Stanton may suggest that he will be available for Sunday's matchup against the Bengals.

  • Browns' Johnny Stanton: Questionable with calf injury

    Stanton (calf) was a late addition to the injury report heading into Sunday's game against the Steelers after being limited in practice Friday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Stanton evidently sustained the injury during practice, as he wasn't on the injury report Wednesday or Thursday. The fullback scored the first touchdown of his career in last Thursday's win over Denver, and Stanton will continue to fill in for the injured Andy Janovich (hamstring) if Stanton's own injury doesn't keep him from suiting up.

  • Browns' Johnny Stanton: Scores first career TD

    Stanton had two carries for five yards and caught his only target for a one-yard touchdown in Thursday's 17-14 win over Denver.

    Stanton hauled in his first career touchdown, finishing off a 13-play drive that quarterback Case Keenum kept alive with a fourth-down scramble immediately prior to the fullback's score. He's filling in for the injured Andy Janovich (hamstring), who is on injured reserve and will miss at least one more game.

  • Browns' Johnny Stanton: Active for first time in 2021

    Stanton caught his lone target for six yards in Sunday's 37-14 loss to Arizona.

    Stanton replaced the injured Andy Janovich (hamstring) on the active roster for Week 6. It was his first action, and he played just two snaps. The Browns typically don't use a fullback for anything other than blocking, but Stanton did line up at tight end during the preseason.

  • Browns' Johnny Stanton: Signed to active roster

    The Browns signed Stanton to their active roster from their practice squad Tuesday.

    Stanton replaced Andy Janovich, who was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, on the Browns' active roster. The 27-year-old fullback spent the preseason with Cleveland and should get acclimated to the offense quickly. His role will likely be limited to blocking duties for Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb.

  • Johnny Stanton: Re-ups in Cleveland

    Stanton was signed to the Browns' practice squad Wednesday.

    Stanton spent the preseason with Cleveland, serving as both a fullback and tight end. In the right circumstance, he could be a useful offensive tool, but if Cleveland's counting on Stanton, its season has gone wrong. The Browns kept three tight ends, so there could be a path should an injury occur, but they also inked tight end Jordan Franks, another player who spent preseason with the team and has familiarity with the system.

  • Browns' Johnny Stanton: Used at tight end

    Stanton had one carry for a one-yard loss and caught both targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 17-13 win over the Giants in Preseason Week 2.

    The Browns rested their top three tight ends, leaving them light at the position. Enter Stanton, normally a backup to fullback Andy Janovich, to get reps behind Connor Davis and Jordan Franks. Stanton could serve has a hybrid fullback/tight end, which could be useful for Cleveland after the team lost Stephen Carlson during Preseason Week 1 to what appears to be a season-ending knee injury.

  • Browns' Johnny Stanton: Agrees to future contract

    Stanton signed a reserve/future contract with the Browns on Tuesday, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.

    Stanton made his NFL debut in 2020, recording 21 total snaps without a touch. Fellow fullback Andy Janovich is under contract for another season, so Stanton is a long shot to make the roster in 2021.

  • Johnny Stanton: Returns to practice squad

    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.

  • Browns' Johnny Stanton: Elevated by Browns

    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.

  • Johnny Stanton: Could join Browns in Week 11

    Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski mentioned Stanton as a potential candidate to get a callup from the practice squad to replace Andy Janovich (reserve/COVID-19 list) in Sunday's game against the Eagles, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Janovich was placed list Monday, but he still has time to pass the necessary protocols ahead of Sunday's contest. That said, if Janovich can't go, Stanton would be the most logical option to replace, should the Browns want to add another blocker to their backfield. Stanton has yet to make his NFL debut.

  • Browns' Johnny Stanton: Inks deal with Cleveland

    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.

  • Johnny Stanton: Let go from practice squad

    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.

  • Johnny Stanton: Joins practice squad in Minnesota

    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.

  • Johnny Stanton: Waived off IR

    Stanton (lower leg) was waived from the Vikings' injured reserve list Friday, according to the league's official transaction log.

    Stanton spent the entire 2018 season on IR due to an unspecified leg injury that required him to be carted him off the field during Minnesota's preseason game against Jacksonville. It's not clear if the fullback and former UNLV quarterback is recovered at this stage, but he's immediately free to sign a contract with any another organization outside of Minneapolis upon clearing waivers.
