Former Utah defensive tackle Dave Kruger joined free safety Jamoris Slaughter and offensive tackle Chris Faulk on the sidelines today during the second practice of Browns rookie minicamp.
Kruger, the younger brother of Browns outside linebacker Paul Kruger, stretched and did light exercises off to the side with Slaughter and Faulk. Kruger’s injury is unknown. He signed with the Browns as an undrafted free agent.
Slaughter is recovering from a ruptured left Achilles’ tendon he suffered in September, and Faulk is rehabilitating after tearing two ligaments in his right knee in September. Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said he expects Slaughter, a sixth-round pick from Notre Dame, and Faulk, who signed with the Browns as a undrafted free agent from Louisiana State, to be back in action by training camp, which starts in late July.
The other 45 players attending rookie minicamp participated. Although the Browns will wrap up their rookie minicamp Sunday, the final practice is closed to the media.
New regime watches
Browns owner Jimmy Haslam attended the second practice of rookie minicamp despite his family business, Pilot Flying J, being at the center of an ongoing federal investigation into an alleged fraud scheme.
Haslam chatted with CEO Joe Banner while watching practice. General Manager Mike Lombardi and President Alec Scheiner also watched the action.
