Position battles: Rookie defensive tackles John Hughes and Billy Winn split time working with the first-team offense. Hughes has started both of the Browns’ preseason games.

Highs and lows: Undrafted rookie strong safety Emanuel Davis intercepted a pass from quarterback Seneca Wallace to wide receiver Owen Spencer during a one-on-one drill. Davis later knocked undrafted rookie offensive tackle Jake Anderson to the ground during an 11-on-11 session. … Rookie wide receiver Josh Gordon stopped running a route during a one-on-one drill after cornerback Joe Haden knocked Gordon’s helmet to the side. … Several passes were dropped, and Little was responsible for at least two. In a one-on-one drill, Little used a double move to burn cornerback Buster Skrine, but the ball went off his hands while he was wide open in the end zone. Tight ends Jordan Cameron and Evan Moore and wide receiver Jermaine Saffold each had a drop as well. … Undrafted rookie receiver Josh Cooper jumped and extended his arms to catch a sharp pass from Wallace over the middle in an 11-on-11 session. … Weeden completed a deep crossing route to Little, who beat Skrine again, during 11-on-11 action. … Kicker Phil Dawson made a 62-yard field goal during a special-teams drill. ... After the first-team offense went four-and-out with its first attempt in the two-minute drill, Wallace and the second unit set up a 41-yard field goal by Dawson. Weeden and the starters then got another shot and set up 45-yard field goal by Dawson. Quarterback Colt McCoy was not used in any of the two-minute periods.
