“Nothing significant on the injury front to report,” Browns head coach Mike Pettine said to lead off his statement to the media after the Cleveland Browns completed their first preseason game of the 2015 NFL season. There might not be a better statement that a NFL head coach can make at the conclusion of a
It is finally game day for the Cleveland Browns! Before the Browns take the field at First Energy Stadium against the Washington Redskins, let’s take a gander at the new look offense.

I made it out to Cleveland Browns training camp today and here are some of the things that I saw. Johnny Lefty Johnny Manziel had a sore elbow and nobody knew it until he started throwing lefty. Coach Mike Pettine and quarterbacks coach Kevin O’Connell both said Manziel is likely to play Thursday against Washington
It’s okay, everyone. No need to drive to the I-480 bridge. Yes, Joe Thomas was hurt in practice on Monday. But, it sounds like he’s going to be fine. Thomas went down after having his right leg rolled up on at training camp, reportedly by rookie defensive tackle Danny Shelton. Word in Berea is that Thomas

Johnny Manziel is no stranger to saying the right things. It’s always the “doing” part that’s tripped up the second-year quarterback from Texas A&M. The only time I can think of where Johnny backed up his words with action was when he spent the off-season in rehab after calling himself out in front of the
Browns left tackle Joe Thomas took some time during OTA’s on Friday to talk with SiriusXM Radio’s Bruce Murray and Kirk Morrison.

Joe Thomas is the best. He’s easily the best Cleveland Browns player since 1999. After last night’s Game 5 win in the Eastern Conference Semifinals he might be the best Browns cheerleader too. Sorry, Joe Haden. Your attendance record at Cavs games is unmatched among your fellow Browns players, but until such time as you
