Browns Training Camp Notes, Aug. 19, 2020
·The Browns conducted their third consecutive training camp practice in full pads.
·The following players did not practice today due to injury: RB Nick Chubb (concussion), DE Myles Garrett (hamstring), P Jamie Gillan (illness), S Karl Joseph (foot), WR Jarvis Landry (hip), DT Larry Ogunjobi (groin), WR Damion Ratley (groin). C JC Tretter (knee) and LB Mack Wilson (knee).
·A total of 37 puppies have been adopted via the Browns Puppy Pound this year. Each practice day, the Browns, via social media, will announce open sign ups to meet local animals in need of homes from the Northeast Ohio Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). Due to health and safety concerns, walk-up adoptions are not available at this time. Since the program’s launch in 2015, 532 puppies from the Northeast Ohio SPCA have been adopted by Browns fans. The Northeast Ohio SPCA is a non-profit no-kill pet shelter located in Parma. With each adoption, Sugardale will provide new owners with a puppy starter kit (while supplies last), as well as a station for families to take their first family photo with their new puppy.
·The Cleveland Browns Foundation has launched an initiative that is shared each day during “Browns Live: Training Camp” – an NFL Auction for viewers to have the opportunity to bid on a number of unique, once-in-a-lifetime Browns experiences. All proceeds benefit the Cleveland Browns Foundation’s “Stay in the Game! Keep Learning Every Day” Network.
