CLEVELAND (AP) — Browns starting linebacker Anthony Walker Jr. has been activated from injured reserve.

He will return Sunday against the Chargers after missing three games with a hamstring injury.

Walker came back to practice earlier this week. While he was out, the defense posted back-to-back impressive performances in wins over Chicago and Minnesota, holding the Bears and Vikings to a combined 20 points.

Cleveland’s defense is ranked second overall in the NFL going into Sunday’s game against Los Angeles.
