The Cleveland Browns have signed QB P.J. Walker to the active roster from the practice squad, the team announced Wednesday.   That means not only does Walker have a new contract, but it also means “No other team can sign him.  When a player is on the practice squad, any other team in the league can sign and play him on their team.  Walker played a key role in helping the Browns win their last two games against the San Francisco 49ers and the Indianapolis Colts while Browns starter Deshaun Watson dealt with injuries.

PJ Walker is slated to start Sunday’s game against the Seahawks, while Watson focuses on rehabbing his injured throwing shoulder.

It remains to be seen if Watson is officially ruled out for the contest later this week, but the decision to start Walker this weekend was announced by coach Kevin Stefanski on Wednesday. With Watson not starting Sunday’s contest, Dorian Thompson-Robinson is presumably in line to serve as the Browns‘ No. 2 QB behind Walker versus Seattle.
