Jarvis Landry, Karl Joseph activated off PUP list; Browns healthy with practice set to start

The Browns are healthy in time for practice to begin next week.

Receiver Jarvis Landry (hip), safety Karl Joseph (foot) and tight end Pharaoh Brown (foot) were activated off the physically unable to perform list Saturday. Receiver J’Mon Moore was activated from the non-football injury list.

With the reserve/COVID-19 list also empty, the roster is at 80 healthy players.

The Browns also claimed cornerback M.J. Stewart off waivers. He was a second-round pick of the Buccaneers in 2018.

The Browns are scheduled to begin full practices Friday, the official start to training camp. Landry should be on the field after undergoing extensive hip surgery in February.

He’s never missed a game in six NFL seasons, and practicing in August was the timetable he mentioned to reporters in May. He made his fifth straight Pro Bowl last season after catching 83 passes for 1,174 yards and six touchdowns.

Joseph, 26, was signed to a one-year, $2.5 million contract as a free agent in April. He had foot surgery in November, reportedly to have screws inserted to repair the plantar fascia. He said in April he was healing well and expected to be 100 percent for training camp.

He’s expected to start alongside rookie second-round pick Grant Delpit at safety and said in April he hopes to earn a long-term deal with the Browns.

Brown will compete for playing time in coach Kevin Stefanski’s scheme that relies heavily on tight ends.

Stewart (5-foot-11, 200 pounds) started six of 21 games played with Tampa Bay, totaling 64 tackles and five passes defensed. He started one of 10 games last year.
