NFL News: Canfield's Sean Baker activated by the Falcons and Jamaine Cook released by the Browns

Posted: Updated:

Canfield's Sean Baker has been activated by the Atlanta Falcons from their practice squad and will suit for the final regular season game.

The Cleveland Browns are also juggling their roster the day after Christmas.

Former Youngstown State running back Jamaine Cook was released from the practice squad to make room for wide receiver Connor Vernon.

The Browns did sign free agent defensive lineman Brian Sanford who was cut by the Raiders on December 7th.

Phil Taylor has a concussion and John Hughes is nursing a sprained knee.

Cleveland had an open roster spot since wideout Davone Bess was placed on the reserve non-football illness list for personal reasons.

Despite missing four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy, Josh Gordon was named the Cleveland Browns most valuable player.

Gordon leads all NFL receivers with 1,564 yards and average per catch at 19.6.

Seven times this season he's had 100 plus yards receiving in a game and looks to add to his club record on Sunday in Pittsburgh.

For the second time in his career, Antonio Brown was named team MVP by his Steelers teammates.
