Cleveland Browns Training Camp Report: Day 25 - Training Camp Closes to Public

It was the final day of training camp open to the public Tuesday morning, and probably the team's final practice session before they travel to Philadelphia to battle the Eagles on Thursday. How did things go for the Browns?


  1. Big Return for Moore: I was thrilled to hear that tight end Evan Moore returned to the practice field on Tuesday, and it sounded like he put on a show for fans again. He was reportedly dominant in red-zone drills on Tuesday by using his height to his advantage. Moore had a nice one-handed catch in the end zone with Mike Adams in coverage, according to the Akron Beacon Journal. Moore said that his concussion was a "minor" one.
  2. More Reps for Hardesty: Even though he practiced Monday, starting running back Peyton Hillis rested Wednesday, and Brandon Jackson remained out with a toe injury. That means the bulk of the reps were reserved for Montario Hardesty again, who is a full-go for Thursday.
  3. Bring Out the Golf Cart: I loved it when Mike Holmgren rolled around in a golf cart last year, and word is that he was taking the golf cart around on Tuesday with team owner Randy Lerner. Too bad Holmgren didn't have an orange cast on his leg again. Speaking of Holmgren, I forgot to mention that it seemed like he was taking notes on Monday.
  4. Brown Jumps Another One: After picking off Seneca Wallace twice on Monday, cornerback Sheldon Brown was back at it on Tuesday, jumping a route in front of Brian Robiskie to notch an interception on a pass by Wallace. Wallace was also intercepted by Coye Francies during practice.
  5. Windsor Making a Late Push? Wide receiver Rod Windsor made a nice leaping catch on a pass by Colt McCoy Monday, and he came right back with another nice play on Tuesday. Per the Akron Beacon Journal, Windsor made a one-handed catch over cornerback Ramzee Robinson despite tight coverage. Speaking of Robinson, it was noted that he was playing some nickel back with the first-team offense on Tuesday.
  6. Gocong Still Out: Linebacker Chris Gocong admitted after practice that his neck stinger has kept him out longer than anticipated, but he says he should be back practicing some time next week.
  7. Future Camp Sessions: The public practices are gone, and Tony Grossi reports that the total attendance for all the Berea sessions combined 20,905 fans. Grossi says that the media will only have access to about 30 minutes of camp in the coming weeks, so you can pretty much bank on the typical "training camp reports" ending here on DBN.
