Browns coach Eric Mangini met with reporters Thursday afternoon. Here are some of the highlights from the press conference:
- Mangini said running back Peyton Hillis (ribs), right guard Floyd Womack (knee) and defensive end Kenyon Coleman (knee) will miss practice today. Mangini said he's still optimistic Hillis will be able to play Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
- Mangini said fullback Lawrence Vickers will return to practice today after sitting out Wednesday.
- Mangini said wide receiver Josh Cribbs looked really good last week against the Baltimore Ravens, the best he's looked physically in a while. Cribbs has done a lot of good work against the Steelers, and the game plan will include Wildcat packages for him, Mangini said.
- When asked if he'd be willing to change his offense if Browns President Mike Holmgren asked, Mangini said he expects to have those conversations after the season. It will take care of itself, Mangini said.
