Berea, OH (92.3 The Fan) – Trevon Coley returned to practice Tuesday after sitting out 25 days with a high ankle sprain while safety Damarious Randall received a second opinion on his knee.

Coley, who started 15 Games last season, suffered the ankle injury Aug. 2.

“It was good to see him at practice,” head coach Hue Jackson said. “I’m not going to put him out there this week but we’re going to make sure he’s ready. His injury was a little bit different so we’ll make sure he’s ready for Pittsburgh.

“I feel very encouraged that he’ll be ready to go.”

Coley’s injury opened the door for defensive lineman Larry Ogunjobi to solidify a roster spot and role. Ogunjobi had been starting in Coley's place.

Coley was signed as an undrafted free agent out of FAU by Baltimore in 2016 but didn’t make the team and he spent time on the Washington practice squad, but not until November of that year where he spent a few weeks before the Browns picked him up in mid-December.

Coley totaled 41 tackles, 2 sacks and a fumble recovery in 2017.

Randall has missed the previous 3 practices after his knee locked up during warm-ups Thursday night prior to the game against the Eagles. 

“He went to go have...just make sure everything’s checked out and I think he’s gonna be fine,” Jackson said. “He’ll be back here ready to go practicing when we get back.”

Jackson, who held Randall out of the game against Philadelphia as a precaution, said he does not expect surgery to be required but Randall wanted a second opinion.

“We just gave him an opportunity to go see someone that he knew, and we okayed it and made sure that everything is okay,” Jackson said.

The Browns acquired Randall from Green Bay in March.
