Browns coach Mike Pettine met with reporters Sunday after the fourth full-squad practice of training camp. Below is a transcript provided by the team.
On DL Billy Winn’s status: “Billy’s X-rays were OK yesterday, but this morning, he was going for further testing. I haven’t gotten that information yet. I apologize, but we will know more later today.”
On the status of RBs Duke Johnson, Jr. and Terrance West: “Duke could be a little bit. We are confident we can get Terrance back, especially just kind of butted up against the day off. We feel coming back out on our next day out here on Tuesday that Terrance will have a shot then.”
On if the team will consider adding a RB with three currently not practicing: “Yeah, I am going to get together with (General Manager) Ray (Farmer) after this. Always when we have these breaks, we evaluate where we are from an injury standpoint and timetables of who is coming back and if we need to, add that certainly is the position that will probably be the first one discussed.”To read more or comment...

The Browns will likely need to add a running back to their roster because the stable is riddled with injuries early in training camp.
A day after Duke Johnson (left hamstring) and Terrance West (left calf) were injured, fellow running back Luke Lundy left practice Sunday with an undisclosed injury. Running back Glenn Winston (knee) has been sidelined since camp started.

"We're confident we can get Terrance back, especially just kind of butted up against the day off. So we feel coming back out Tuesday that Terrance will have a shot then.To read more or comment...
Browns owner Jimmy Haslam met with reporters Saturday following the third full-squad practice of training camp. Below is a transcript provided by the team.
Opening statement: “Good to see you. I am not sure what Pett (Head Coach Mike Pettine) said about practice. I know he was disappointed we have a couple people banged up a little bit, a couple of running backs might be out a little bit. Good effort. It’s been good to see everybody hustling around, see the new guys and the second-year guys and also guys like (OL) Alex Mack back out here. I thought it was a good start to the first three days.”
On the team’s talent level, as well as his excitement and expectations for the season: “I think we are all excited. I will defer to (General Manager) Ray (Farmer) and Pett about comments on the talent. It looks to me like we have more football players on both offensive lines and defensive lines and all around. We drafted 12 guys, and we have 10 out there. We have some free agents that have a chance. We signed four or five free agents. I think there is no doubt we have a better team. Hopefully, they will gel. We have a challenging schedule as everyone knows, but I’m sure all 32 teams are optimistic today.”
On if he knew much about QB Josh McCown before the team signed him: “I did not.”To read more or comment...
