NFL Report: Browns add defensive lineman to practice squad

From the Browns-

“The Cleveland Browns today signed defensive lineman Hall Davis to the practice squad.

Originally drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the fifth round (149th overall) of the 2010 draft, Davis has appeared in one regular season contest. He spent 10 weeks on the Titans’ practice squad in 2010, before being signed to the active roster where he appeared in one game. He spent training camp with Raiders this season before being waived on final roster cuts on August 31. A two-year starter at Louisiana-Lafayette, he totaled three sacks and one interception in 12 games as a senior. Born March 2, 1987, the 6-4, 270-pound Davis is a native of Baton Rouge, La., where he attended University High School.”

DT Ahtyba Rubin did not practice again today for the Browns. Emmanuel Stephens was placed on the IR yesterday. DT Phil Taylor expects to be active this week against the Ravens, taking Stephens’ spot on the roster.

    That is not a football player. That’s an Ivy League core course lecture site.

    BTW, anyone announce why Emmanuel Stephens had to be IR’d?

    I see what’s happening here and like this move. We bring in a Ragin’ Cajun. Why? Well, where’s the Super Bowl being played this year? That’s right. New Orleans. This is all making sense, if you have the twisted mind to see it. Fortunately, I do.

    Shurmur said it was a neck injury in his presser today, although I wonder if it was one of those phantom injuries to make room for Taylor on the roster.
