The Browns signed undrafted rookie wide receiver Arceto Clark and undrafted rookie running back Dennis Johnson to their practice squad, the team announced Tuesday.

The Browns also released undrafted rookie wide receiver Jasper Collins, a University of Mount Union product, from their practice squad.

All eight spots on the practice squad are now filled.

The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Clark spent training camp with the Seattle Seahawks and had five catches for 48 yards in the preseason before being waived Aug. 31. He is a Mississippi State University product.

The Browns waived the 5-7, 193-pound Johnson, a University of Arkansas product, on Saturday. Johnson spent the preseason with the Houston Texans and tallied 33 carries for 129 yards (3.9 average) and one touchdown to go along with five receptions for 31 yards.

The Browns signed the 5-10, 180-pound Collins to their practice squad Sept. 2 after the Miami Dolphins waived/injured him because he was dealing with a hamstring problem.
