The Browns designated cornerback Terrance Mitchell for return, per a team announcement. Mitchell has not been on the field since suffering a broken wrist in Week 4.
Mitchell took the practice field on Wednesday, but league rules mandate that he must sit out for two more games before seeing live action. He’s the first Browns player designated to return from IR this season.
Mitchell, joined the Browns in March as a free agent and secured a starting job in the team’s revamped secondary. In the first month of the season, he recorded 19 tackles, one interception, three passes defensed, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery.
After Mitchell was knocked out of action, E.J. Gaines stepped into his role. Unfortunately, Gaines has since been lost for the season due to multiple concussions, leading to some serious shuffling in the secondary.
After sitting out the next two games against the Bengals and Texans, Mitchell will be eligible to play on Dec. 9 against the Panthers.
