BEREA - Earl Holmes, Tre Johnson and Rickey Dudley all sat out as the Browns held a light workout Monday morning.
Johnson and Dudley expect to participate in the afternoon's 60-play team scrimmage. Butch Davis said a decision on Holmes' participation would be made later.
With Johnson resting, Melvin Fowler worked at right guard with the first-team offensive line.
Fowler appears to be making major strides early in camp. The rookie did more than just hold his own against Gerard Warren today, he abused him on several plays, opening large holes for William Green and James Jackson.
Paul Zukauskas was the second-team right guard. On Sunday, Butch Davis said the team's Monday morning practice would be cut short. It was not. The Browns were on the field right up to the schedule 10:30 a.m. finish. Davis also said he would limit Couch's work in the morning. That did not happen. Couch took his normal turn, making all of the throws with the first-team offense.
The receivers accounted for most of the morning's highlights. Frisman Jackson turned in the play of the day, taking a reverse to the right, then lofting a pass on the run to Andre Davis in the end zone. Dennis Northcutt flashed some speed on another reverse on the very next play.
William Green encouraged some loud cheers from the crowd with some hard running on a seep to the left. He bounced off a couple of defensive linemen, then held on as Corey Fuller did everything in his power to strip the ball.
