We're about half-way through OTAs for the Cleveland Browns, and so far the news has been good on the injury front with everybody staying healthy. According to reports, WR Dwayne Bowe gave the team a bit of a scare when he "got tangled up with a defender and came up limping about midway through the two-hour OTA practice." In his post-practice presser, though, head coach Mike Pettine said that Bowe should be fine, but they might hold him out of the next OTA session as a precaution.

The Browns lacked a big target in the red zone last year at the wide receiver position, but Bowe is already showing signs this OTAs that he will be the guy to take on that role. The more reps he can get with QB Josh McCown in those situations, the better.
An area where WR Dwayne Bowe will help tremendously? The red zone. D-Bowe just boxed out CB Tramon Williams in the end zone for a touchdown— Kevin Jones (@Mr_KevinJones) June 2, 2015
