Browns Practice Notes: 8/16

A deep position looks momentarily shallow and the Browns get a new Taurus...

BEREA, Ohio—One of the deeper positions on the team was a little thin during practice as Peyton Hillis and James Davis walked off the field at the same time with a trainer. Both were walking on their own power, but neither returned. With Montario Hardesty still not practicing the duties were left to Jerome Harrison and Chris Jennings. The duo alternated the majority of practice at the position.

Private Time: President Mike Holmgren was one-on-one with QB Colt McCoy while McCoy sat out of practice. Holmgren was doing a lot of gesturing as if giving McCoy some tips.

Quick Hits: QB Colt McCoy (hand), WR Mohamed Massaquoi (hamstring), OL Floyd Womack (undisclosed), RB Montario Hardesty (knee), P Dave Zastudil (knee), OL Tony Pashos (shoulder) and LB Titus Brown (undisclosed) did not practice in addition to the three PUP players DL Shaun Rogers, DL C.J. Mosley and DB Coye Francies…QB Jake Delhomme threw deep to WR Josh Cribbs for a touchdown as Cribbs got behind CB Joe Haden…WR Brian Robiskie caught a pass inside the 20 from Delhomme, beating CB Sheldon Brown…S Abe Elam intercepted Delhomme near the goal line…QB Seneca Wallace hit TE Evan Moore to the one yard line and then RB Chris Jennings went in for the score…OL John St. Clair was at right tackle and OL Shawn Lauvao at right guard with OL Tony Pashos and OL Floyd Womack sitting out practice.

New Guy: The Browns waived/injured WR Johnathan Haggerty They signed WR Taurus Johnson, who was on the Lions' and Dolphins' practice squad in 2009. The 6-1, 205 pound Johnson played at South Florida, the same school that rookie WR Carlton Mitchell attended. Johnson is wearing 13.

If no one claims Haggerty, he will be placed on Injured Reserve and miss the season. Haggerty is an undrafted free agent from Southwest Oklahoma State who has looked good in the preseason. He was injured near the end of the Packers' game with what looked as though an ankle injury.
