Browns coach Eric Mangini met with reporters Wednesday morning. Here are some of the highlights from the press conference:
- Mangini said running back Peyton Hillis will miss practice today, but he should return to action Thursday. Mangini would not specify Hillis' injury. He said it's more rest than anything. Mangini said he doesn't think Hillis is wearing down because his conditioning is superb.
- Mangini on why rookie offensive lineman Shawn Lauvao hasn't cracked the lineup: "To this point, the other guys have played better than him."
- Mangini said he's been encouraged by rookie quarterback Colt McCoy's play. He's excited to see what McCoy can do against the Baltimore Ravens' elite defense.
