Browns coach Eric Mangini met with reporters Wednesday afternoon. Here are some of the highlights from the press conference:
- Mangini said the following players will miss practice today: Quarterbacks Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace, running back Peyton Hillis, offensive linemen Alex Mack and John St. Clair, defensive back Nick Sorensen and defensive linemen Shaun Rogers, Kenyon Coleman and Robaire Smith.
- Mangini said the bulk of the team's injured players are expected to play Sunday. The availability of Delhomme and Wallace won't be known until end of week, he said.
- Mangini said he's leaning toward starting rookie quarterback Colt McCoy on Sunday if Delhomme and Wallace are unavailable.
- Mangini said he expects running back Hillis to practice this week, maybe even tomorrow, and play Sunday.
