The Browns had only one practice Friday. They used it to prepare for Saturday's Brown and White intrasquad scrimmage at Cleveland Browns Stadium. Here are some of my observations from Friday's practice:
The Brown team is composed of the first-team offense and the second-team defense. The White team has the second-team offense and the first-team defense. In other words, "ones" will go against "ones" and "twos" will go against "twos" Saturday.
The first-team defense (White team) had the same personnel it's had throughout training camp with one exception. I couldn't find defensive lineman Kenyon Coleman anywhere. Therefore, Derreck Robinson and Brian Sanford alternated at left defensive end.
The first-team offense (Brown team) featured Floyd Womack at right guard and John St. Clair at right tackle. Shawn Lauvao (right guard) and Tony Pashos (right tackle) were with the White team on Friday.
Browns coach Eric Mangini said punter Dave Zastudil returned to the team's training facility in Berea Friday, but I never saw Zastudil on the field. Rookie running back Montario Hardesty, defensive backs Chris Roberson and Coye Francies and defensive linemen Shaun Rogers and Brian Schaefering were missing, too. I watched defensive lineman C.J. Mosley run through light agility drills on the field. I also saw running back Peyton Hillis and linebacker Titus Brown walk onto the field in the middle of practice, wearing jerseys and shorts. Linebacker David Bowens was on the field, but he wasn't practicing.
Browns President Mike Holmgren had a walking boot on his right leg instead of an orange cast. As usual, he zoomed all over the practice field in a golf cart.
Kicker Phil Dawson made a couple of long field goals, though I couldn't determine the exact distance from where I was standing.
In an 11-on-11 session, quarterback Jake Delhomme hit wide receiver Brian Robiskie with a short pass in the end zone.
Wide receiver Chansi Stuckey returned some punts. With Zastudil missing, Reggie Hodges continued to handle the punting duties.
A day after throwing three interceptions, Delhomme escaped practice Friday without throwing one. He came close, though. Cornerback Eric Wright nearly intercepted a pass from Delhomme for the second time in as many days. Wright and Stuckey jumped to make a catch. Both appeared to get a hand on the ball, but it fell incomplete.
Quarterback Seneca Wallace had a rough time during an 11-on-11 session. One of his passes was broken up by rookie cornerback Joe Haden. Another was deflected near the line of scrimmage by linebacker Marcus Benard. And Brandon McDonald made the day even worse for Wallace by jumping and intercepting a pass that Wallace intended for wide receiver Josh Cribbs near the right sideline.
