Browns coach Eric Mangini met with reporters Friday morning. Here are some of the highlights from the press conference:
- Mangini said linebacker David Bowens (concussion) will return to practice today.
- Mangini said tight end Evan Moore (hip) and linebacker Scott Fujita (knee) will miss practice again today.
- Mangini said he still hasn't decided who will serve as the team's backup quarterback Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. On Thursday, he announced rookie Colt McCoy will be the starting quarterback.
- When asked if the team has already shown enough improvement to convince Browns President Mike Holmgren that the coaching staff should return next season, Mangini said, "I haven't done that math." Mangini also said he thinks the whole season, not just the final three games, will influence Holmgren's decision.
