Mitchell will start at cornerback in Sunday's tilt against Carolina, Pat McManamon of ESPN.com reports.
Mitchell was placed on the active roster Saturday and will be thrust right back into the fold Sunday, drawing the start in place of rookie Denzel Ward (concussion). It's unclear if Mitchell will see a typical starter's share of snaps or if he'll be limited in his first game since being activated from Injured Reserve. Look for Tavierre Thomas to see some extra snaps if Mitchell's role is limited in his return.
Mitchell (wrist) will return from injured reserve Week 14, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Mitchell was placed on injured reserve Oct. 2 after undergoing surgery on his broken wrist. It was initially thought that the fifth-year pro would miss the remainder of the 2018 season, but Mitchell has progressed quickly in his recovery and is expected to return prior to Sunday's tilt against the Panthers. It remains to be seen whether Mitchell will be able to suit up Week 14, but his presence would be a notable boon to the Browns' secondary if Denzel Ward (concussion) is unable to go.

Mitchell underwent surgery Monday after suffering a broken wrist in Sunday's contest with the Raiders, and though it was originally thought he would miss the remainder of the season, head coach Hue Jackson relayed that there's a chance Mitchell can return. Mitchell -- who had two forced fumbles and an interception -- will be replaced E.J. Gaines and TJ Carrie. Defensive back Jeremiah McKinnon was also promoted from Cleveland's practice squad to provide depth.
