The Cleveland Browns are attempting to achieve their first winning record on Monday night since the 2014 season. Cleveland is activating Antonio Callaway after serving his four-game suspension, per Ian Rapoport.

During the offseason, the expectation was that Callaway would join Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry in the starting offense. Unfortunately, the second-year wideout was handed a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy.
The first month of the season has been quite the rollercoaster ride on offense for the Browns. In the first and third weeks of the season, Baker Mayfield and the offense struggled to get into a rhythm.
On the other hand, in Week 2 and 4, the Browns offense was able to move the ball with ease. Now, they'll add another weapon in the offense that can help provide a spark to an inconsistent group.
Aside from Beckham Jr. and Landry, Cleveland hasn't gotten consistent production from the other wideouts. From Rashard Higgins sustaining an injury and Damion Ratley underwhelming; the team has to be ecstatic to get Callaway into the mix.
Last year, in his rookie campaign, Antonio Callaway quickly built a decent rapport with Mayfield in the passing attack. The Florida product caught 43 passes for 586 yards and five touchdowns in 2018.
Along with that, Callaway's skill set makes him a perfect fit alongside the two LSU pass-catchers already in the offense. It remains to be seen how much work he gets on his first game back against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football.
Nonetheless, Freddie Kitchens is glad to get his young receiver back on the field for the rest of the season.
