CLEVELAND -- Jarvis Landry has been activated by the Cleveland Browns from injured reserve. This will allow the Pro Bowl wide receiver to make his return for Thursday's home match against the Denver Broncos.

Landry was injured in the medial collateral ligament and had to miss four games. The injury occurred on September 19, during the Houston Texans' opening drive.

Landry's 80 yard receiving on six catches this year should give an immediate boost to the battered Cleveland offense.

The Browns will not be able to play against the Broncos because Baker Mayfield, their starting quarterback (non-throwing right shoulder), and running backs Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunter (calf) are both injured. Wideout Odell Jr. (shoulder), is also questionable.

To support Case Keenum who starts for Mayfield, the Browns elevated QB Nick Mullens to the practice squad.
