BEREA, Ohio — The Cleveland Browns wrapped up their three-day mandatory minicamp Thursday, sending the players home for summer vacation.
From the much anticipated on-field action between quarterback Baker Mayfield and wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to the questionable future of running back Duke Johnson with the team, Browns minicamp had a lot packed into just three days.

“This has been a long process for these guys,” Head Coach Freddie Kitchens said. “I’ve been most impressed with how these guys have kept their heads down and just worked because it does get redundant after a while.”
On the third and final day of minicamp, the load was a lot lighter for some of the players, including Beckham and Johnson.
Although the team's goal during these practice sessions is to work hard and develop a physically tough team, coaches and players are aware that the safety of the players has to come first.
Even keeping safety in mind, cornerback T.J. Carrie appeared to sustain an injury during Thursday’s minicamp. According to the Browns, Carrie grabbed his knee before limping off and eventually walking out of the indoor facility.
Carrie’s leg injury isn’t believed to be serious, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal.

The Browns will enjoy their summer for a few weeks, returning for training camp at the end of July.
