Observations from Friday's second practice at Browns minicamp

By Nate Ulrich Published: June 11, 2010

Here are some of the notes I took during Friday's second practice at Browns minicamp in Berea:

  • The Browns' offense performed much better today. On Thursday,  quarterbacks Jake Delhomme, Seneca Wallace and  Brett Ratliff combined to throw five interceptions. On Friday, no interceptions were thrown.

  • There were, however, some broken-up passes, including ones batted down by linebacker Jason Trusnik and defensive back DeAngelo Smith during the second session.

  • Tight end Evan Moore remained sidelined after sitting out the during the first session of the day. Moore again participated in light exercises with defensive linemen Shaun Rogers, C.J. Mosley, Keith Grennan, defensive back Benjamin Burney, receiver Jake Allen and punter Dave Zastudil. Cornerback Eric Wright, linebacker David Bowens and T.J. Ward also were sidelined during the second session.

  • Rookie safety Larry Asante injured his leg while defending an incomplete pass from Wallace to receiver Johnathan Haggerty. Asante remained on the field, but a trainer strapped a massive pack of ice to his left thigh.

  • Linebacker Scott Fujita walked off the practice field and into the field house, though nothing major appeared to be ailing him.

  • Receiver James Robinson was penalized for a false start. Yes, there are officials who actually throw yellow flags onto the field during practices.

  • Tight end Greg Estandia dropped a pass from Ratliff.

  • Delhomme and Mohamed Massaquoi combined to produce the play of the day -- a long touchdown pass for about 60 yards.

  • Delhomme also hit tight end Robert Royal in the end zone, and Wallace connected with receiver Joshua Cribbs for another score.

  • Phil Dawson and Shaun Suisham each made 2-of-3 field-goal attempts to end practice.

  • I had a chance to watch the running backs go through their drills while I was standing only about 15 yards away. In an entertaining exchange worthy of a Comedy Central Roast, Jerome Harrison relentlessly ripped Chris Jennings for driving a pink Cadillac. Jennings' come back: "It's red."
