Johnny Stanton: Returns to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Vikings' Johnny Stanton: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton (lower leg) cleared waivers Tuesday and reverted to injured reserve, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

It's still unclear how severe Stanton's injury is, but it's bad enough for the Vikings to have cut him. If he's able to reach an injury settlement and get healthy, the 23-year-old will be able to sign with another team. The Vikings signed Luke McNitt and Kobe McCrary to compete with C.J. Ham for the fullback job.

Johnny Stanton: Lands on waivers with injury tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings waived/injured Stanton (lower leg) on Monday, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The undrafted rookie was carted off the field during Saturday's preseason loss to the Jaguars, signaling a serious injury. With Stanton dropped from the roster, C.J. Ham is the last fullback in Minnesota and is expected to make it past final cuts.

Vikings' Johnny Stanton: Carted off Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton was carted off the field during Saturday's preseason game against the Jaguars due to a left leg injury, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports.

Stanton appeared to have suffered a potentially severe lower-leg injury during the fourth quarter of Saturday's tilt, so an upcoming long-term absence is not out of the question. Stanton's injury leaves C.J. Ham as the Vikings' lone healthy fullback, so he could have a much clearer path to securing a spot on the 53-man roster.
