The Browns (4-11) practiced today in preparation for their home game Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers (11-4). Reporters were allowed to watch about the first 30 minutes of practice. Here's what you need to know about the open session:
- Quarterback Colt McCoy (concussion), wide receiver Jordan Norwood (concussion) and right tackle Tony Pashos (illness) did not practice.
- Backup linebacker Quinton Spears returned to practice after sitting out Wednesday. He suffered a concussion this past Saturday against the Baltimore Ravens.
- Artis Hicks practiced at right tackle with first-team offense. He replaced Pashos.
