Wide receiver Josh Cooper signed again with the Cleveland Browns today as the team prepares for life with Brandon Weeden back at quarterback.
Cooper, a slot receiver at Oklahoma State who caught eight passes for the Browns last season, was released just last Monday. Then today, the team signed him back to the practice squad and released linebacker Justin Staples.
In other practice news for the Browns, defensive end Desmond Bryant returned to form today. He left Thursday night’s game in an ambulance because he was experiencing shortness of breath. It appeared to be a scary incident, but it’s good to see he’s back at work.
Running back Chris Ogbonnaya (concussion), linebacker Jabaal Sheard (knee) and linebacker Quentin Groves (ankle) all worked out with trainers in various regimens today as they continue their roads back to health. Defensive lineman Billy Winn (quad) did not practice.
