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:
Wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi practiced for the first time since Nov. 4. Massaquoi, who's pictured above, suffered a concussion Oct. 23 against the Seattle Seahawks and returned to action Nov. 6 against the Houston Texans. But Massaquoi experienced symptoms related to his concussion and left the game. He also was inactive this past Sunday against the St. Louis Rams. Coach Pat Shurmur said Massaquoi's symptoms have dissipated.
Cornerback Dimitri Patterson practiced for the first time since he sprained his left knee Oct. 30 against the San Francisco 49ers. Right defensive end Jayme Mitchell practiced, even though chest and ankle injuries kept him from playing Sunday against the Rams.
Running back Montario Hardesty worked outside with a trainer while the rest of the team practiced in the field house. Hardesty, who tore a calf muscle in his right leg Oct. 30 against the 49ers, did some light jogging.
Defensive end Auston English (knee), safeties Ray Ventrone (hamstring) and Usama Young (hip) and offensive lineman Tony Pashos (ankle) also practiced. In what has become a ritual on Wednesdays, Artis Hicks practiced at right tackle with first-team offense while Pashos, the starter, watched.
