Browns' Ryan Switzer: Signs on in Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns signed Switzer to a one-year deal Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Switzer linked with Cleveland's practice squad back in October, and he'll remain with the team to begin the offseason. He played a depth role with the Steelers from 2018-19.

Ryan Switzer: Back from COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns placed Switzer (undisclosed) on the practice squad injured list.

Switzer had been signed as insurance when the Browns experienced a spate of injuries at wideout.

Ryan Switzer: Joins Browns' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Steelers' Ryan Switzer: Finishes season on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Switzer (back) finished the 2019 season on injured reserve.

Switzer's season was cut short due to a back injury after he hauled in eight passes on 11 targets for 27 yards . He also totaled 195 return yards. Switzer is a mediocre receiver who may no longer be needed in 2020 for his return skills with the addition of Diontae Johnson. Switzer has one year remaining on his contract.

Steelers' Ryan Switzer: Designated for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittsburgh announced Thursday that Switzer (back) has been designated to return from injured reserve.

Since Switzer was first placed on injured reserve in Week 11, he won't be eligible to play for at least two more weeks. As such, he won't be available for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Ravens, and he would also remain out for a potential wild-card game the following week, should the Steelers make the playoffs.

Steelers' Ryan Switzer: Hits injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Steelers placed Switzer (back) on injured reserve Thursday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

Switzer suffered a back injury during Sunday's win over the Rams, the severity of which will cause him to spend the rest of the season on injured reserve. In his absence, James Washington and Diontae Johnson stand to see work fielding kicks and punts, respectively.

Steelers' Ryan Switzer: Won't gear up Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Switzer (back) is ruled out for Thursday's matchup against the Browns, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Switzer was listed as a DNP all week, so he'll miss the first game of his career. The third-year pro makes most of his impact as a returner, so James Washington and Diontae Johnson are in line to field kicks and punts, respectively. Switzer's absence hurts the Steelers' wideout depth as well, so they may bring up a practice-squad receiver.

Steelers' Ryan Switzer: Still unable to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Switzer (back) didn't participate in Tuesday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

This was the team's first official practice of the week, and Switzer was held out due to the back injury he suffered during this past Sunday's win over the Rams. The wideout is trending toward missing his first career game unless he can practice in some capacity Wednesday. If Switzer's indeed ruled out for Thursday's matchup against the Browns, the Steelers may promote Terry Wright or Tevin Jones from the practice squad for depth.

Steelers' Ryan Switzer: DNP on Monday's estimate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Switzer (back) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's practice estimate.

Switzer dealt with a back injury last week but was able to suit up for this past Sunday's win over the Rams. However, it appears he aggravated the issue, as the 25-year-old left the game early and didn't return. He'll need to get on the practice field in some capacity to have a shot at suiting up Thursday against the Browns, but his initial practice report has him trending the wrong direction in a short week. The Steelers have four other healthy wideouts, so they'll likely need to bring another player aboard if Switzer is ruled out.

Steelers' Ryan Switzer: Leaves Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Switzer (back) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Rams, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Switzer was managing the back injury heading into Sunday and was forced out in the fourth quarter of the game. As long as he's out, look for James Washington to take over kick return duties and Diontae Johnson to field punts.

Steelers' Ryan Switzer: Shakes off back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Switzer (back) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Switzer sat out of Wednesday's practice, but that appears to have been a precautionary move. The third-year pro is slated to suit up Sunday against the Rams, and he should resume duties as the team's main punt and kick returner.

Steelers' Ryan Switzer: Sidelined during practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Switzer (back) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

Switzer has suited up in all eight games this year, and he's now in jeopardy of missing his first game since entering the league in 2017. He works predominately as a return man, so James Washington and Diontae Johnson are on reserve to return kicks and punts, respectively, if Switzer can't play Sunday against the Rams.
