Anderson sits out practice

By Marla Ridenour Published: June 12, 2009

Browns quarterback Derek Anderson sat out the second of two mandatory minicamp practices Friday with an apparent leg injury. The team would not give details afterward.

Anderson came up limping after scrambling to find an open receiver in the morning session, but was able to finish the practice.

But after lunch, he wore a sleeve on the lower part of his right leg and even had difficulty jogging downfield to watch his teammates. He did work with injured teammates Jamal Lewis, Steve Heiden and Braylon Edwards at the start of drills. He later put on his helmet to hear the plays being called over its headset, but watched the team portion from the sideline. He did not throw in quarterback drills.

When the team concluded the evening with a two-minute drill, Brett Ratlliff was the second quarterback working behind Brady Quinn.

Anderson and Quinn are competing for the starting job, which will not be determined until late in preseason.
