BEREA, Ohio--BEREA, Ohio--Some of the best laid plans.
Just as the Browns were set for their first training camp practice under Hue Jackson open to the public, thunderstorms and lightning hit Berea causing the Browns to close practice to the public. The Browns were expecting about 3,000 fans for the practice that had to be turned away.
Practice was scheduled from 3-5:30 pm but at 3:08 pm the team decided to close practice to the public due to the threat of lightning. The Browns stretched and started individual drills in the indoor field house, but went outside about 3:20 pm when the skies brightened.
The first practice open to the public now will be Saturday starting at 3:25 pm but the tickets have been sold out.
Greco on Side: OL John Greco, DB Joe Haden (ankle), TE Seth DeValve (hamstring), OL Conor Boffeli (knee/ankle) and LB Jackson Jeffcoat were on the stationary bikes as practice began. Haden and DeValve are on the PUP list, while Boffelli is on the non-football injury list along with WR Josh Gordon (quad).
Jeffcoat to PUP: LB Jackson Jeffcoat was placed on Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list Friday.
