Ready if needed

By Marla Ridenour Published: September 5, 2008

If Browns running back Jamal Lewis can't play Sunday against Dallas because of a hamstring injury, coach Romeo Crennel said Jason Wright and Jerome Harrison will share the load.

Lewis was hurt Aug. 18 against the New York Giants, running downfield after a fumbled exchange with quarterback Derek Anderson was returned 95 yards for a touchdown.

If he's called on, Wright said he's not looking to prove anything. He's made just four career starts in three seasons.

''When you go in with that mentality, you end up playing poorly. You end up trying to do too much,'' Wright said Friday. ''You read your reads, you pick up your blocks and the production comes to you, you don't really find production. I've learned that over the last couple years.''

Left tackle Joe Thomas said offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski has brought out some different looks and plays for Wright and Harrison.

''Whoever's in there, I think we're going to do pretty well,'' Thomas said.

But Wright won't put anything past Lewis, whose off-season workout regimen could rival Jerry Rice's.

''As far as people who take care of their bodies, Jamal is top-notch,'' Wright said. ''If anybody can come back as quick as possible, it's Jamal.''
