Browns notes from Hue Jackson Emmanuel Ogbah Jersey Stitched , John Dorsey pre-camp presser With training camp set to officially open on Thursday, Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson and general manager John Dorsey were live in Berea on Wednesday, answering any and all questions the media had heading into this year’s sessions. With Jackson humorously dressed in sweatshirt-Dorsey attire, let’s recap some of the big takeaways from press conference.WR Situation – Looking at Dez Bryant, Josh Gordon’s StatusThe Browns will be down another wide receiver at the start of camp, as WR Ricardo Louis is out for the season with a neck injury. Cleveland is also using the “Did Not Report” label on WR Josh Gordon to help open a second roster spot (at least temporarily).Dorsey wants to respect Gordon’s privacy and the team supports him through this time. He does not have clarity as to when Gordon will be back, other than they expect him to be back at some point for the 2018 season. They feel he is 100% committed to the Browns and they are 100% committed to him as well.Hue Jackson has not had the chance to speak with Gordon since the news. Dorsey was asked if he knows what Gordon’s statement meant when he said he would be back “soon.” Cleveland has talked with Dez Bryant, and they will think about the receiver position in the coming days. However Youth Duke Johnson Jersey , he also cautioned not to read too much into that specifically, since they have talked to a lot of players. While Gordon is out, Corey Coleman will slide into the starting lineup to begin training camp.WR Eli Rogers has re-signed with the Steelers. Cleveland will be working out some receivers in the coming days.Staying Confident in QB Tyrod TaylorDespite the praise both Jackson and Dorsey had for rookie QB Baker Mayfield, both were clear that this is Tyrod Taylor’s team.Jackson did not want to discuss whether Mayfield will be the No. 2 or No. 3 quarterback to begin camp; instead, he just kept stressing that Mayfield will get the amount of reps he needs. Here is what Jackson said about Taylor being the No. 1 quarterback in camp:Hue Jackson’s Different Role in 2018 as Head CoachEven though Hue Jackson is still the head coach, now entering year three with the Browns, his role has very much changed into this year’s camp. He now compares himself to a CEO who is overseeing the operation. In my opinion, this was 100% necessary and the only way to justify keeping Jackson for a third season — to see if he could thrive in such a role.Other NotesShon Coleman will be the first player to get a shot at left tackle.Jamie Collins Duke Johnson Jersey Stitched , Mychal Kendricks, and Antonio Callaway are ready to go for camp.Asked why the secondary was revamped so much, Dorsey said, “After you sit and listen to the head coach talk about what he thinks we need, and then you talk to the defensive coordinator and see what he thinks he needs at that time – it was obvious that we needed some players here and that is why we went down the path we did.”Ricardo Louis’ neck injury happened late last season and required surgery.Daily Dawg Chow: Browns news (9/5/18) Cleveland Browns:“Desmond Harrison could start at left tackle” (Plain Dealer) – “In all seriousness, coach Hue Jackson is contemplating starting the unknown rookie Sunday against the vaunted Steelers’ defense, and moving Bitonio back to his natural position at left guard.”“Chris Hubbard ready for starting role” (C-T) – “Training camp was in its dog days. The preseason had only just begun. Right tackle Chris Hubbard was already concentrating on the season opener against the Steelers.”“Browns counting on Tyrod Taylor, Jarvis Landry and Carlos Hyde” (MJ) – “Dorsey dumped all three quarterbacks from last season — DeShone Kizer Youth Jaelen Strong Jersey , Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan — and replaced them with Tyrod Taylor, Drew Stanton and Baker Mayfield…”“Newest Browns additions were coveted by other teams” (247Sports) – “Rapoport noted that four teams put in waiver claims for former Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Carl Davis. The Browns had waiver priority…”NFL:“Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (foot) full-go in practice Tuesday” (NFL.com) – “Philadelphia Eagles running back Jay Ajayi is on pace for Thursday night’s season-opening kickoff versus the Atlanta Falcons.”“Steelers confident in James Conner as Le’Veon Bell remains absent” (ESPN) – “Mike Tomlin needed one word to describe why he feels better about Le’Veon Bell’s absence this year compared to last.”“Luck admits he was a ‘sad, miserable human’ and ‘scared about football’ during comeback” (CBS) – “Before we look ahead to Luck’s 2018 season, it’s worth revisiting how he got here. It’s worth revisiting because that’s exactly what Luck himself did.”“Pat Shurmur leaves door open for Odell Beckham to return punts” (PFT) – “Shurmur isn’t afraid to use Odell Beckham and Saquon Barkley in the return game. Shurmur said Tuesday on WFAN 660 that the team would use their offensive weapons strategically…”
