BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns on Saturday promoted Tori Gurley to the active roster from the club's practice squad. In addition, the team waived RB Dennis Johnson.
Gurley, a 6-4, 230-pound wide receiver, is a first-year NFL player. He spent training camp with the Browns this season before being added to the practice squad on Sept. 2. He spent time on the practice squads of Minnesota (three weeks), San Diego (three weeks), Tampa Bay (two weeks) and Oakland (two weeks) in 2012 after spending the entire 2011 season on Green Bay's practice squad.
A two-year letterman at South Carolina, Gurley entered the NFL following his redshirt sophomore season. A native of Rock Hill, S.C., he graduated from Rock Hill High School.
He will wear No. 81.
