The Browns (4-11) head into their season finale against Pittsburgh thin on their defensive front with Phil Taylor slowed by a concussion and John Hughes nursing a sprained knee.

Cleveland had an open roster spot after wide receiver Davone Bess was placed on the reserve/non-football illness list for personal reasons.

The Browns also signed rookie wide receiver Conner Vernon to the practice squad. He spent training camp with the Raiders. Also, running back Jamaine Cook, released from the practice squad on Wednesday, was re-signed.
