The Cleveland Browns had a very simple walkthrough practice Wednesday morning, so there is not much to today's practice report. Nonetheless, let's recap what we learned on Day 12 of training camp for the .
CLEVELAND BROWNS TRAINING CAMP REPORT - DAY 12 (8/7/13)
Practice Moved Inside: Practice was already scheduled to be closed to the public, so it was fitting that it rained in Cleveland, forcing practice to be moved indoors.
First-Team Secondary: Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reported that the first-team secondary consisted of CB Joe Haden, SS Johnson Bademosi, FS Tashaun Gipson, and CB Chris Owens. That will likely be the unit we see to start Thursday's game. S T.J. Ward will be rested, and CB Leon McFadden was idle Wednesday with a groin injury.
Who is Out Against Rams? The following players are out against the Rams, according to head coach Rob Chudzinski: RB Trent Richardson, RB Montario Hardesty, FB Brad Smelley, FB Brock Bolen, WR David Nelson, OG Shawn Lauvao, OT Oniel Cousins, OT Ryan Miller, OT Chris Faulk, DE Dave Kruger, S T.J. Ward, and CB Leon McFadden.
Rookie Hazing: I am not a fan of rookie hazing, but some of the veteran Browns players, including NT Phil Taylor, became barbers and shaved patches of hair off of the likes of OLB Barkevious Mingo, K Brandon Bogotay, OT Martin Wallace, and DE Armonty Bryant.
Marecic Trolling: You can make your own assumption about the outcome of the play. Chudzinski confirmed that FB Owen Marecic would be paired with RB Brandon Jackson on the second-team offense against St. Louis.
