Browns Training Camp Notes (8.18.20)

For Immediate Release

Aug. 18, 2020

 

  • The Browns conducted their second practice this season in full pads.

 

  • The Browns made the following roster move:

 

  • Waived/Injured: DE Georgie Obinna (triceps)

 

  • The following players did not practice today due to injury: RB Nick Chubb (concussion), DE Myles Garrett (hamstring), DT Larry Ogunjobi (groin), WR Damion Ratley (groin) and C JC Tretter (knee).

 

  • LB Mack Wilson left today’s practice with a knee injury.

 

  • A total of 30 puppies have been adopted via the Browns Puppy Pound this year. Each practice day, the Browns, via social media, will announce open sign ups to meet local animals in need of homes from the Northeast Ohio Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). Due to health and safety concerns, walk-up adoptions are not available at this time. Since the program’s launch in 2015, 525 puppies from the Northeast Ohio SPCA have been adopted by Browns fans. The Northeast Ohio SPCA is a non-profit no-kill pet shelter located in Parma. With each adoption, Sugardale will provide new owners with a puppy starter kit (while supplies last), as well as a station for families to take their first family photo with their new puppy.

 

  • Through the #BeTheSolution campaign, a social justice educational movement inspired by EVP of Football Operations and General Manager Andrew Berry, the Cleveland Browns support the “Build the Bridge.” Established by Cleveland Heights coaches Mac Stephens and Kahari Hicks and Beachwood Head Coach Damion Creel, Build the Bridge strives to create a coalition of coaches, players, parents, administration and community members to foster the success of student-athletes through social-emotional, educational, and athletic advancement.

 

Throughout Training Camp, the Browns will recognize a number of teams that are participating in the Building the Bridge Challenge as the Cleveland Browns High School Team of the Day.  Today’s High School Team of the Day, Columbia Raiders, is paired with Beachwood Bisons, led by Coach Damion Creel, to discuss how the two programs could build the bridge of racial equality.
