Browns rookie quarterback Colt McCoy did not practice Wednesday afternoon. A team spokesman said McCoy is sick.
Running back Peyton Hillis (knee), tight ends Robert Royal (shoulder) and Evan Moore (hip), defensive lineman Shaun Rogers (ankle, hip) and linebacker Eric Alexander (groin) also missed practice Wednesday.
In his news conference Wednesday morning, Browns coach Eric Mangini revealed Hillis would miss practice because he needed "more rest than anything else."
Mangini, however, did not mention the other players who ended up sitting out Wednesday, including McCoy. A team spokesman said McCoy was at the Browns' headquarters Wednesday morning, but he didn't feel well and took the day off as a result.
Mangini said he expects Hillis to return to practice Thursday. A team spokesman said Mangini expects McCoy to do the same.
After missing three games with a left high-ankle sprain, McCoy returned to the Browns' starting lineup this past Sunday in a 19-17 loss against the Cincinnati Bengals. He completed 19-of-25 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns without an interception and was sacked four times. He is now 2-4 as a starter this season.
