Found October 10, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:

Those hoping for rookie wide receiver Josh Cooper to get the nod might have to wait a bit longer as the Cleveland Browns have signed Rod Windsor to the practice squad.

Windsor spent 15 weeks with the Browns’ practice squad a season ago before being activated for the team’s final two contests. In the preseason, he hauled in five passes for 51 yards and a touchdown. He will likely provide depth behind an otherwise decimated corps as Mohamed Massaquoi (hamstring), Travis Benjamin (hamstring), and Jordan Norwood (foot) all have been bitten by the injury bug.

To make room for Windsor, the team has released linebacker Benjamin Jacobs from the practice squad while waiving injured defensive end Marcus Benard from the Injured Reserve.

The receivers who could be healthy options for the Browns this weekend are now Greg Little, Josh Cribbs, Josh Cooper, Rod Windsor and any of Massaquoi, Benjamin or Norwood who can find a way to go.
