Browns coach Eric Mangini met with reporters Friday morning. Here is a transcript from the press conference:
- Running back Peyton Hillis (thigh) and John St. Clair (ankle) won't practice today, Mangini said.
- Hillis experienced "tightness" Thursday and was pulled out of practice for precautionary reasons, Mangini said. But Hillis' injury shouldn't prevent him from playing Sunday, Mangini said.
- Center Alex Mack (shoulder) will return to practice today, and Mangini said he feels good about Mack's chances to play Sunday.
- Mangini said quarterback Jake Delhomme's playing status will be determined by how he feels Saturday. Delhomme and Seneca Wallace have been splitting the reps close to 50/50 this week.
