The Cleveland Browns made two moves prior to Thursday morning's practice, as they activated defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin from the active/PUP list and tight end Evan Moore from the active/non-football injury list. Both players were expected to be limited in their first session back, but it's good to know they weren't out for an extended period of time. With more than a week to go before the team's first preseason game against the Detroit Lions, both players should be able to get enough practice time in to see action during those contests.
Rubin's return comes a day after the defensive line looked really thin due to injuries. On Thursday, defensive end Frostee Rucker missed his second consecutive practice with what seemed to be a leg injury. Defensive tackle Brian Schaefering was held out with a thigh injury. Another position on the team that is thin is at safety, where Usama Young, who has been playing with the second-team defense, was held out.
While the full reports are not out yet on just how much action Rubin and Moore saw during their first practice, Will Burge from ESPN Cleveland tweeted that Moore saw some early reps with the first-team offense. The other thing to note was that running back Trent Richardson was limited in most team drills with what Pat Shurmur deemed as a headache.
A full recap of the Day 7 action of training camp will be up later today.
