  • The following players did not practice today due to injury: DT Sheldon Day (back), C Nick Harris (knee), DE Myles Garrett (personal), CB Shaun Jolly (groin), Greg Newsome II (hamstring), Elijah Nkansah (shoulder), DE Chase Winovich (hamstring) and WR Michael Woods II (hamstring).


  • OL Dawson Deaton (knee), WR Mike Harley Jr. (ankle) and DE Isaiah Thomas (hand) did not finish practice due to injury.


  • A total of 61 puppies have been adopted this year at the Browns Puppy Pound, presented by Sugardale. Since the program’s launch in 2015, 686 puppies from the Northeast Ohio Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) have been adopted by Browns fans at training camp practices. The Northeast Ohio SPCA is a non-profit no-kill pet shelter located in Parma. For more information on the Northeast Ohio SPCA (9555 Brookpark Road, Parma, OH 44129), visit the organization’s website.


  • Launched in 2019, “Bring the Dawgs Out” welcomes youth and high school football programs onto the field to greet Browns players and coaches as they head out to practice. Members of Hawken’s Rookie Tackle program greeted Browns players and coaches prior to this afternoon’s practice. Launched in 2017, the Browns and local youth football organizations across the country operate USA Football Rookie Tackle programs to further introduce and evaluate the new education and skills-progression focused version of the sport. USA Football’s Rookie Tackle was created to provide a playing structure and format to serve as a youth football development bridge between flag football and 11-player tackle. In line with other sports’ models, Rookie Tackle offers young participants an opportunity to be introduced to or progressively learn more about football fundamentals, strategy and the game itself prior to advancing to full 11-on-11, 100-yard competition that is equivalent to the high school, collegiate and professional ranks. The Browns were the first NFL team to help coordinate USA Football’s “modified tackle” football scrimmages and a Rookie Tackle pilot league within their home market as the two organizations continue their partnership and dedication to advance youth players’ enjoyment of playing the country’s most popular sport.


  • As part of the Browns’ ongoing commitment to social justice efforts, the team hosted another “Conversations for Change” event, multiple of which have been hosted at the Browns’, Guardians’ and Cavaliers’ facilities since the establishment of the CL3 Alliance. After enjoying training camp practice today, approximately 150 youth and first responders from the local community gathered together for a panel discussion and additional group dialogue surrounding impactful social topics related to Cleveland and Northeast Ohio, with the goal of building stronger relationships and further understanding between the groups.


  • During open sessions of Browns training camp, all Browns fans in attendance can visit the Alumni Autograph Stage, presented by Keep It Fun Ohio, to collect an autograph of one of their favorite past players from 1-2:30 p.m. Today’s esteemed guest was Browns Alumnus John Hughes III.
