The big news of Day 13 of training camp was the return of cornerback Eric Wright during the evening session of practice. Wright made a splash right away, intercepting two passes.
The secondary as a whole dominated the evening practice, recording at least seven interceptions. Besides Wright’s interceptions, the other five picks came from rookie safety T.J. Ward (three), Gerard Lawson (one), and Nick Sorensen (one).
With linebacker D’Qwell Jackson out 3-8 weeks, veteran Eric Barton filled in on the first-team defense, which would seem to improve his roster odds. Second-year man Kaluka Maiava worked with the second-team at inside linebacker, but also subbed in on the first team.
The defensive play of the day came during the morning practice, when outside linebacker Jason Trusnik tipped a pass by Brett Ratliff in the air, intercepted it, and then returned it for a touchdown.
The Browns have Friday off as they prepare for their first exhibition game of the season against the Green Bay Packers.
