Tyrod Taylor's first days as a backup for the Browns have been difficult.And not just because he lost his job.Taylor Cleveland Browns Andraez Williams Jersey , who was replaced as Cleveland's starter by rookie Baker Mayfield earlier this week, was cleared from concussion protocol and returned to practice Thursday, but was limited by a back injury that could prevent him from being Cleveland's No. 2 quarterback on Sunday in Oakland.Coach Hue Jackson said Taylor was limited and there's a chance Drew Stanton will be the backup when Mayfield makes his first NFL start against the Raiders."We will see exactly where that is," Jackson said. "He did not do a lot, so I will make sure that if we do put him out there, that he's ready to go. Obviously, Drew has been there since the situation with Tyrod had happened. We will see where that is. I will know more about that tomorrow."Jackson plans to make a decision on his No. 2 quarterback Friday before the team flies to California.Taylor was in the locker room after practice, but said he couldn't speak with reporters because he had a meeting.The 29-year-old sustained a head injury while taking a pounding during the first half of last week's game against the New York Jets. Mayfield replaced him and guided the Browns to a 21-17 win Cheap Andraez Williams Youth Jersey , their first in 20 games stretching to the 2016 season.Taylor was under siege early on, taking hits on five of Cleveland's first six offensive plays as the line appeared to have several communication breakdowns, which resulted in Jets players getting free shots on the QB.Coordinator Todd Haley said those early mistakes up front led directly to Taylor's rough performance (4 of 14 for 19 yards), and contributed to his injuries."I blame it 100 percent," Haley said. "I know that we are all very excited about Baker. That being said, I just want everybody to know that I think Tyrod has done nothing but a tremendous job and has done nothing but put us in a position to win the first two games. I have been very clear when talking about things that are not always comfortable talking about that we have made too many mental errors. A coach is never proud to say that of his group."That is what we need to do as a group because if we make some of the errors that we have made in all three games, it is not going to matter who is playing. ... It was not a fair situation to put Tyrod in."Haley was effusive in praising Taylor for serving as a model and mentor for Mayfield, the No. 1 overall pick and Cleveland's presumptive franchise leader.During his first season with Cleveland Cleveland Browns Sheldrick Redwine Jersey , Haley has been publicly candid when discussing several issues, and cameras captured some of his frank style during scenes on HBO's "Hard Knocks" series which chronicled Browns camp this summer.Because of his affinity for Taylor, Jackson's decision to switch to Mayfield could have been against Haley's wishes. But the former Pittsburgh offensive coordinator would not comment on whether he agreed with the move."I am going to choose to not talk about any of the internal stuff," he said. "I like all of the guys, and I believe in all of the guys. What I will say about Tyrod is he came in and has been a leader from Day 1 of this group and of this entire building."There was not this same excitement and prettiness to it right now, and he was and is a big part of getting this thing continued and going in the right direction because I feel like we are."How this goes around, we have to have all of those guys ready all of the time, and he will be."NOTES: Haley acknowledged that the trick-play Cleveland Browns Sheldrick Redwine Jersey , 2-point conversion the Browns executed flawlessly last week was stolen from the Eagles, who ran their "Philly Special" to perfection in the Super Bowl. "I have no shame," he said. "That is the whole league, though. I think you need to have your eyes open." ... DE Myles Garrett called the NFL's roughing-the-passer crackdown "ridiculous" and said he won't risk an injury to avoid a penalty. "I'm not willing to tear something to lay him on the ground like a child," he said. CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns‘ draft class of 2016 is rapidly shrinking.As he continues to revamp Cleveland’s roster, general manager John Dorsey got rid of three former draft picks on Monday by trading defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah to the Kansas City Chiefs and releasing safety Derrick Kindred and wide receiver Ricardo Louis.Ogbah did not report for the start of the Browns’ offseason program Monday, a sign that a trade was being discussed. The 25-year-old was picked with the No. 32 pick three years ago by Cleveland.He had 12½ sacks in 40 games but became expendable when the Browns acquired edge rusher Olivier Vernon from New York in the deal for Odell Beckham Jr.On the day they introduced Beckham at a packed news conference, the Browns also re-signed wide receiver Rashard Higgins (restricted free agent) defensive back Juston Burris (free agent) Cheap Sheldrick Redwine Youth Jersey , defensive tackle Trevon Coley (exclusive rights free agent) and Jermaine Whitehead (exclusive rights free agent).Kindred and Louis were both selected in 2016 by Cleveland’s previous front office, which drafted 14 players that year. Only three remain.Dorsey has spent the past year and more fixing a roster that produced just one win over two seasons. But the Browns went 7-8-1 last season and expectations are soaring following the team’s acquisition of Beckham and other offseason moves.A fourth-round pick, Kindred had been expected to start after the Browns traded Jabrill Peppers to the Giants as part of the Beckham deal. Needing a safety, Dorsey went out and got Murray, whom he picked while he was the Chiefs GM in 2016. Murray became expendable when the Chiefs signed free agent safety Tyrann Mathieu.Murray started nine games and appeared in 15 last season, making 43 tackles and an interception.The Browns were pleased with Higgins’ development last season and feel he gives them depth at a key position. He had 39 catches for 572 yards and four touchdowns in 2018.Coley has been a solid contributor over the past two seasons, starting 29 games.Burris appeared in four games for Cleveland last season after being signed off the New York Jets’ practice squad. Whitehead played on special teams in his seven games with Cleveland in 2018.
