Browns: News and notes from Day 3 of training camp

BEREA – The Browns moved the third practice of training camp inside today because of rain. It was closed to the public because of limited space in the field house.
Here are some notes and highlights:
** Backup offensive lineman Ryan Miller suffered a concussion and was taken to the Cleveland Clinic. He’s likely to be released from the hospital tonight, the team said.
It was a very scary scene as he lay on the ground motionless.
** The Browns were scheduled to practice in full pads for the first time, but coach Rob Chudzinski decided to go with only shoulder pads because he didn’t want the first padded practice to be inside.
He said the team will be in full pads outside Sunday.
** Chudzinski said backup offensive tackle Oniel Cousins sprained an ankle Friday and is expected to miss a couple of weeks.
** Defensive lineman Phil Taylor (calf) and tight end Kellen Davis (knee) practiced for the first time. They were limited to individual drills.
** Jason Pinkston, who’s working as the second-team left guard, was yanked from a drill after a false start. Chudzinski said Pinkston was replaced because avoiding false starts was a focus of the drill.
** Linebacker D’Qwell Jackson had a fumble recovery for a touchdown when a pitch got loose.
** Newly acquired fullback Brock Bolen didn’t practice with a calf injury. He was signed this week.
** Receiver Jordan Norwood made a nice over-the-shoulder catch and saw some time with the first-team offense. He also dropped a pass over the middle.
** Rookie outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo showed good range in breaking up a deep out route from quarterback Brian Hoyer to tight end Brad Smelley.
