The Browns (3-6) practiced today in preparation for their home game Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars (3-6). Reporters were allowed to watch about 30 minutes of practice. Here's what you need to know about the open session:
- Defensive end Jayme Mitchell, who's pictured to the left, was not at practice during the open period. Mitchell has been dealing with chest and ankle injuries, but his absence was a surprise. Before practiced, coach Pat Shurmur said Mitchell would be ready to play Sunday. A team spokesman said Mitchell missed practice for a personal reason.
- Running back Montario Hardesty (calf) ran outside again like he did Wednesday. The rest of the team practiced in the field house.
- Wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi (concussion) and cornerback Dimitri Patterson (knee) practiced again today after returning to action Wednesday.
- Offensive lineman Tony Pashos practiced today at right tackle with the first-team offense. Artis Hicks took first-team reps at right tackle Wednesday.
