Day 18 Of Browns Training Camp: Marcus Benard Plays With First Unit

The big news during Tuesday’s practices for the Browns involved the linebacker position, which featured second-year player Marcus Benard playing outside linebacker with the first team. The move also saw linebacker Scott Fujita move to inside linebacker, presumably while D’Qwell Jackson is out. That doesn’t bode well for veteran Eric Barton, who was initially replacing Jackson.

Wide receiver Bobby Engram had a big evening practice, hauling in three touchdown passes in situational drills. The veteran receiver is competing for the fifth receiver spot, and with Carlton Mitchell and Jake Allen dropping passes regularly, that spot could come down to Engram and Syndric Steptoe.

Cornerback Sheldon Brown intercepted Jake Delhomme twice — once in the morning, and once in the evening. Safety T.J. Ward also continues to look good in coverage, breaking up a pass intended for Steptoe.

The Browns only have one day of public practices left on Thursday, when they go to work in the morning and the evening.
