Observations from Browns training camp: second practice, Aug. 12, 2010

By Nate Ulrich Published: August 12, 2010

The Browns practiced twice today. Here are my observations from the evening session:

  • Cornerback Eric Wright returned to practice after sitting out in the morning. He left Tuesday morning's practice with an ice pack strapped to his right leg, but apparently his injury wasn't serious. Wright intercepted two passes in his return -- one from Seneca Wallace and another from Brett Ratliff.

  • Offensive lineman John St. Clair returned to practice after being carted off the field in the morning. Browns coach Eric Mangini said St. Clair cramped up.

  • Offensive lineman Floyd Womack sat out after practicing in the morning. Womack, though, ended the morning session by working out on a stationary bike while his teammates ran. In Womack's absence, rookie Shawn Lauvao played right guard with the first-team offense. St. Clair continued to play right tackle.

  • Offensive lineman Tony Pashos, defensive linemen Shaun Rogers and C.J. Mosley, linebackers David Veikune and David Bowens, defensive back Coye Francies, running back Montario Hardesty and punter Dave Zastudil were also sidelined.

  • Although he's still on the physically unable to perform list, Rogers worked with a trainer on the side. He manhandled a blocking sled.

  • The players were wearing shorts, shoulder pads and helmets, so there wasn't much action.

  • For the first time this week, the Browns ran some scout team to simulate the plays of their upcoming preseason opponent, the Green Bay Packers. Coaches hold up cards with instructions so the scout players know what to do on each play as they impersonate the Packers.

  • Defensive backs Nick Sorensen and Gerard Lawson had interceptions.

  • Rookie safety T.J. Ward took top honors, though, with three interceptions.

  • In a rare occurrence, offensive lineman Joe Thomas ran a lap as punishment for a miscue.

  • That's all for this week from Berea. Stay tuned to this blog Saturday night, when the Browns open their preseason schedule against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.
