The Browns practice this afternoon. Even though it's still the preseason, we're in regular-season mode in terms of practices and policies regarding media. In short, this means reporters are prohibited from posting updates via Twitter from the practice field. Also, there are several restrictions on what reporters can reveal. This hinders my ability to write an observations blog like I did throughout training camp, so I'll be feeding this space with other features instead.

What's Browns coach Eric Mangini saying?

By Stephanie Storm Published: August 16, 2010

Browns coach Eric Mangini met with reporters Monday afternoon. Here's the transcript from the press conference:

(Opening statement) -- “Good afternoon everybody.  Just looking at the tape of the game, a lot of the things that I felt on Saturday were reconfirmed.  One of the things that I talked to the players a lot about, we talked about it before the brown and white game, we talked about it again this week: win or lose, you come in and you look at the tape and you draw value from the experience.  You draw value from whatever happened and it only has value if you can take that information and apply it to the next time that you play and you stay consistent with the approach.  Often times in a post-game analysis, if you win you can gloss over some things that have to be fixed.  If you lose, you can harp on some things overly so.  It was a good chance for me to go through that process again.  I really liked the way that we played offensively.”
“I thought Jake (Delhomme) did an excellent job on the first drive.  I thought the group as a whole did an excellent job on the first drive and we were able to do a lot of things against a team that we weren’t able to do very much against last year and their first group, including converting on the fourth down, being able to run it in when we got there on the four yard line.  Good control of the offense by Jake in terms of establishing the protections and getting the line in sync with where we wanted to go with the protections.  So a lot of real positives and then Seneca (Wallace) having a chance to work with that group as well after the sudden change and the things he was able to do.  And the people we were able to get involved, whether it was Ben Watson, Brian Robiskie, Peyton Hillis, Mohamed (Massaquoi).  I thought the catch he (Mohamed) had on fourth down was outstanding.  Shawn Lauvao getting a chance to start, Evan Moore getting involved; so that whole group I was pleased with.  We didn’t have any penalties with that group, didn’t have any turnovers with that group.  Green Bay was the team that led the NFL last year in turnovers.  Obviously, some things to correct there, but a very good start.  I also really liked the way we operated at the end of the game, putting ourselves in a position to tie it and then putting ourselves in the position to win it offensively on that last kick.”

Browns training camp is closed to the public and media today, so I took advantage of a golden opportunity to sleep in a bit. The Browns players will be able to relax a little more, too, because coach Eric Mangini canceled practice today. The players, however,  are still expected to attend meetings today at the team's training facility in Berea. Practices are scheduled to be open to the public again from 8:45-10:45 a.m. and 5:45-7:45 p.m. Wednesday.

Rookie RB Montario Hardesty twisted his right knee

By Nate Ulrich Published: August 2, 2010

On Saturday, news broke about Browns rookie running back Montario Hardesty twisting a knee, causing him to miss training camp for at least a couple of weeks.

During a press conference Monday, Browns coach Eric Mangini said Hardesty twisted his right knee. That might raise concerns because of this: In college, Hardesty had surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his right knee. He also had an operation on his left knee, but it was reported as a minor surgery.
