Cleveland Browns beat writer and member of the Pro Football Writers of America.
As of Monday afternoon Garrett, who did make the trip to Baltimore, remains in a walking boot on his right foot but Jackson hopes Garrett will be able to do more this week before ruling him out.
For the second straight year Browns receiver Corey Coleman will miss significant time after breaking his right hand during Sunday’s 24-10 loss to the Ravens in Baltimore.
Coleman suffered the injury with 13:15 remaining in the fourth quarter following a collision with Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphery on an deep ball from rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer down the near sideline which fell incomplete.
Hue Jackson’s team got a reality check following a strong debut at home against the Steelers in Week 1 as the Ravens thumped them 24-10 Sunday afternoon at M&T Bank Stadium dropping them to 0-2 on the year.
The Browns have gone 48-113 since he was selected third overall in the 2007 NFL Draft and he’s blocked for 19 different starting quarterbacks while playing for 6 GMs, head coaches and coordinators.
Britt sat at his locker, glued to his phone while being peppered with questions about the dropped pass, the possibility of him being pulled as a starter which was insinuated by head coach Hue Jackson on Monday and how he thought rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer fared in his regular season debut.
The 6-foot-4, 233-pound rookie was able to complete 4 passes for 20 or more yards and 10 that went for at least 13 against a tough, physical Steelers defense that hit him 8 times Sunday.
Hue Jackson didn’t mince words Monday when it came to receiver Kenny Britt’s dropped pass early in the fourth quarter Sunday.
The entire team, joined by owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam, locked arms with members of Cleveland’s police force, first responders and military members as they stood on the sideline for the anthem.
Head coach Hue Jackson might not believe in moral victories, there were plenty of them in the 21-18 loss to Pittsburgh as the youngest team in the NFL showed perseverance and promise.
A pre-practice fight has cost safety Calvin Pryor a job in Cleveland.
This is the second injury for Garrett since the Browns selected him with the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. He suffered a lateral foot sprain in May causing him to sit out the last 2 weeks of OTAs and minicamp in June.
A few hours after saying that “You shouldn’t be scared to take anybody down,” Myles Garrett himself went down.
Myles Garrett Still Aiming For Big Ben, Knows It’ll Be Tough To Make Roethlisberger His First NFL Sack
It took Myles Garrett a millisecond to name the quarterback he looked forward to sacking first after the Browns picked him No. 1 overall in the 2017 NFL Draft: Ben Roethlisberger.
There’s little doubt that Jackson and his players want to win, but do they really have the tools and players to do it? It doesn’t appear that they do.
The Browns claimed former Ravens quarterback Josh Woodrum off of waivers Sunday while also electing to keep both Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan behind rookie starter DeShone Kizer.
Should no one be willing to trade for Osweiler, the Browns would have to pay his $16 million salary in full. Even if they find a trade partner it is likely they’d be asked to pick up a massive chunk of that salary.
Hue Jackson praised the efforts of both players and wished them well Wednesday night on his coaches show.
Joe Haden will be at FirstEnergy Stadium on Sept. 10. He’ll be dressed in black and gold.
Hours after releasing Joe Haden the Browns dumped another first round pick.
A day after failing to deny reports that they were shopping 2-time Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden, the Browns cut him.
Haden is scheduled to make $11.1, $11.2 and $10.5 million in 2017, 2018 and 2019. A trade would also cost the Browns cap hits of $3.3 million this year and $3.2 million in 2018.
A Toledo, Ohio native, Kizer is all too familiar with what a disaster the expansion Browns have been and the quarterback graveyard that has followed since 1999.
An argument can be made that Kizer will only be as good as his supporting cast this coming season but through 3 preseason games the returns aren’t great, especially at wide receiver.
DeShone Kizer will be the Browns’ starting quarterback in 2017.
Kizer completed just 6 of 18 passes for 93 yards in the first half but he was not sacked.
A dozen players knelt and prayed during the anthem Monday night prior to their 10-6 win over the New York Giants at FirstEnergy Stadium drawing heavy criticism from conservative fans who maintain any demonstration during the anthem is disrespectful to the country’s military.
Saturday night’s third preseason game for the Browns is more than just a dress rehearsal for head coach Hue Jackson.
Joe Thomas Praises DeShone Kizer’s Professionalism A Week After Saying The Rookie Wasn’t Ready To Play
Thomas didn’t back down from his point that starting at any position – and especially quarterback – in the NFL as a rookie is extremely difficult. However, he also expressed faith that head coach Hue Jackson knows what he is doing in putting Kizer out there so quickly.
Hue Jackson Doesn’t Put QB Situation To Bed, But DeShone Kizer Is Under The Covers Ready To Be Named The Starter
Jackson will start Kizer Saturday night at Tampa Bay, their third preseason game which is often referred to as the ‘dress rehearsal’ for the regular season, pushing the 21-year old into the driver’s seat to face the Steelers come September 10.
Browns Notes: DeShone Kizer Hopes To Be Last QB Joe Thomas Blocks For, No Regrets For Brock Osweiler
Kizer will start Saturday night at Tampa Bay and he appears in line to get the nod Sept. 10 against Pittsburgh. The announcement comes a week after Thomas said that the rookie wasn’t ready to start.
Jackson named Kizer the starter for Saturday night’s game at Tampa Bay, the third preseason game which is often referred to as the ‘dress rehearsal’ for the regular season.
Hue Jackson Hopes To Sort Browns QB Situation Out By Wednesday After Brock Osweiler And DeShone Kizer Fail To Separate Themselves
Jackson has made it clear on multiple occasions that there is no rush to start Kizer but Kessler and Osweiler might be making it a necessity, if not the best option.
Last week head coach Hue Jackson came under fire for saying that he hoped he would not have to deal with protests from members of his team before recanting and promising to support their right to do so in a prepared statement a few days later.
Hue Jackson could name his Week 1 starter this week before the Browns travel to Tampa Bay for the customary “dress rehearsal” which is the third preseason game, and who that will be could be decided Monday night.
After Kizer’s preseason debut that saw him complete passes of 52 and 45 yards and account for 2 touchdown drives in 5 offensive series in the second half, the bandwagon to have him start Sept. 10 filled up quickly.
Jackson read a prepared statement at the conclusion of his press conference to clarify his position.
Before season No. 2 of the rebuild kicks off under Jackson, several questions still need to be answered.
Brock Osweiler will start Monday night against the New York Giants head coach Hue Jackson announced after practice Wednesday.
Jackson dismissed his team following practice allowing them to forego the usual nightly meetings they have before calling it a day.
Rookie safety Jabrill Peppers spent the afternoon with the first team defense and put on quite the display.
Following Monday’s practice, Jackson was asked what his reaction would be, or how would he handle the situation if one of his players chose to protest in any form – sitting, kneeling etc. – during the national anthem.
Lee and the Browns haven’t held back as far as installing the offense with Kizer, but Lee has also been trying to break some of Kizer’s bad habits, especially mechanically which takes time.
Everyone is talking about whether or not Jackson will move rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer up the Cleveland Browns’ depth chart.
Kizer’s performance Thursday night basically threw kerosene on the Browns annual QB competition bonfire, setting the debate ablaze once again much to the chagrin of head coach Hue Jackson.
Here’s a look at the good and bad from Thursday night’s 20-14 preseason win over the Saints.
It remains unclear just how long Osweiler will be on the field, along with the rest of the starters, but if he is able to move the offense and provide them with scoring opportunities he’ll take a big step towards putting an end to this “competition.”
Garrett will finally get his first crack at a quarterback Thursday night in the preseason opener against Drew Brees, who likely will see very limited action, and the New Orleans Saints.
The sudden emergence of Louis is good news for the Browns, who are in dire need of finding production beyond just veteran Kenny Britt and sophomore wideout Corey Coleman.
The offense had one of their most productive and spirited practices of camp with Osweiler at the helm slinging footballs all over the field – and deep too – while receivers were laying out to try and haul the passes in Monday afternoon.
