Scott Fujita Activated, Will Take Joe Haden's Place On Browns Roster

Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita is back on the active 53-man roster after the NFL lifted a roster exemption when the league overturned Fujita's three-game suspension, according to reports.

The Browns received a roster exemption from the league Friday after Fujita's three-game suspension for his alleged role in the New Orleans Saints' bounty scandal was overturned by a three-member appeals panel. Fujita, though, did not play Sunday and remained on the exempt list until today.

Browns coach Pat Shurmur said Fujita, who's coming back from an injured left knee, will practice this week.

Fujita slipped right into the 53-man roster after cornerback Joe Haden was suspended on Monday for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances and removed from the active roster. The Browns are back in action on Sunday when they visit the Cincinnati Bengals.
