Hazel has only played in nine games since coming into the league in 2014, with four of those games coming with Indianapolis last season.

The Browns signed Hazel off the Colts' practice squad earlier this week, but the wideout apparently wasn't fully healthy at the time of his acquisition.

Browns' Matt Hazel: Added to Cleveland's roster
The Browns signed Hazel off the Colts' practice squad Wednesday, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports. Hazel was limited at Wednesday's practice due to a hamstring injury, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal.
Hazel will take the spot of fellow receiver Bryce Treggs, who was waived Wednesday in a corresponding move. The Browns likely wouldn't have added Hazel to the 53-man roster if his injury was a serious concern, so it shouldn't impact his availability for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Instead, Hazel's low standing on the depth chart and lack of familiarity with the playbook will likely prove to be more significant obstacles to him earning an active status for the contest....

Colts' Matt Hazel: Claimed by Colts
Hazel was claimed by the Colts on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The Colts only had five wideouts on their depth chart entering Sunday so the fact that they opted to bring in Hazel shouldn't be surprising to anyone. What would be surprising is if Hazel finds a way to play meaningful snaps with the first-team offense this year. The likelihood of that happening seems low at the given point in time.... See More ...
