The Browns (3-4) practiced today in preparation for their road game Sunday against the Houston Texans (5-3). Reporters were allowed to watch about 30 minutes of practice. Here's what you need to know about the open session:
- Starting running back Peyton Hillis practiced for the first time since Oct. 26. He has missed the Browns' past two games after pulling his left hamstring Oct. 16 against the Oakland Raiders. Hillis wore full pads and had his left leg wrapped today as he participated in team drills during the open period.
- Starting wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi practiced for the first time since he suffered a concussion Oct. 23 against the Seattle Seahawks. Massaquoi also competed in team drills during the open session.
- Safety Ray Ventrone practiced for the first time since he aggravated a hamstring injury against the Seahawks.
- Tony Pashos (ankle) practiced at right tackle with the first-team offense. On Wednesday, Artis Hicks took the reps as the first-string right tackle even though Pashos practiced.
