“Jake Delhomme steps back in the pocket and throws…and it’s intercepted!”
That’s a quote that Cleveland Browns fans hope they don’t have to endure very often this season, but the veteran quarterback had a bad day of camp after tossing three interceptions. Here is how each of his turnovers occurred:
1. After a tipped pass, defensive end Robaire Smith grabbed the football in the air.
2. On a long pass intended for wide receiver Brian Robiskie, cornerback Eric Wright made the interception.
3. Lastly, safety Abram Elam caught the final interception in the end zone.
Despite Delhomme’s struggles, he has the support of head coach Eric Mangini, who believes the quarterback is having a good camp.
The most exciting play of practice once again involved the Cyclone formation, featuring Joshua Cribbs and Seneca Wallace. Cribbs took a snap from shotgun and tossed a pass to Wallace in the flat, who ran into the end zone untouched for a score.
On the injury front, defensive back Chris Roberson will miss several weeks with a leg injury he suffered Wednesday morning. Punter Dave Zastudil has been cleared to return to practice on Friday, and backup fullback Peyton Hillis appears ready to return soon.
