Good Morning Browns Town!!!
After practice on Friday, Campbell briefly met with the media to discuss his being cleared to play on Sunday. “Just glad to be back out here with these guys and to finish out the season together,” Campbell said after practice.
In other Browns related news, defensive end Desmond Bryant underwent a cardiac ablation procedure to correct his irregular heartbeat at the Cleveland Clinic Friday and is expected to make a full recovery. An ablation typically involves inserting catheters through the groin to correct structural problems in the heart that can trigger the erratic beat.
Here’s to wishing Desmond a speedy recovery and we will see him back out on the field in time for the Browns 2014 training camp.
One last bit of news to report, defensive tackle Phil Taylor was fined $7,875 for his facemask on Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew last week against Jacksonville. That is Taylor’s third fine since being drafted in 2011.

Browns linebacker Quentin Groves on how he also went through the same procedure Desmond Bryant underwent to fix his irregular heartbeat. “It is scary,” said linebacker Quentin Groves, who had an ablation performed before attending the NFL Combine in 2008. “It’s the same things I had done. It is scary to know that you can be fine one day and the next day you not be here with us, so I think it’s the proper thing to get done. I think he made a wise choice to get it done.”
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick on former colleague and Browns general manager Mike Lombardi. “He’s smart, he’s thorough, he understands football,” Belichick said. “He understands not just personnel but schemes and how certain players fit into certain schemes better than others because of the responsibilities in those schemes; the type of plays or the type of system that coaches run, different coaches run. There are obviously a lot of different coaches in this league, different coaches in college, so that affects the performance of the players – some good, some bad, depending on how they fit into that particular system. I think he has a very good understanding of that, which is important for personnel people to understand, just like it is for coaches to understand personnel.
“Mike is a hard working guy that won’t leave a stone unturned. He’ll find players, the Tony Joneses of the world, the Wally Williams of the world, the guys like that that played very well for us at Cleveland that nobody ever heard of that came out of nowhere that were good football players. He has a way of finding those guys.”
