Best soundbites from Saturday's practice

Day 12 of training camp is in the books.

Here are the best soundbites from Saturday’s practice.

HUE JACKSON

“We can’t hurt our team. It is something we talked about as a staff and as a football team, and we’re going to do that better.” — on taking Myles Garrett and Joel Bitonio off the field during practice because of penalties

“He needs to. He has got to keep getting better. That’s what he is doing. He is working hard and trying to get better.” – on WR Corey Coleman’s strong practice performance

DL NATE ORCHARD

“It’s the game of football, you're always one injury away from a season-ending or career ending injury so I definitely took a step back, looked at my life, analyzed everything where I wanted to be, who I wanted to be and how I wanted to bounce back from this injury.” — on bouncing back from a season-ending injury in 2016

WR JORDAN PAYTON

“I’m thankful that I’m still here and I am thankful that they stood behind me. It says a lot about them. For me, I have always been a loyal person in my life. I have always, if someone defended me or stood with me through anything, I will give my life to them. That is where I am right now. I just try to do everything I can for this organization, for (Head Coach) Hue (Jackson), for (Executive Vice President of Football Operations) Sashi (Brown), for all of the people upstairs and obviously for those guys in the locker room.” — on his 2016 suspension

C JC TRETTER

“We came out with a win, which was the first goal, but those first couple of drives, we kind of shot ourselves in the foot. We had some bad penalties that put us behind in down and distance. There are not many third-and-10-pluses that are really high percentage downs to keep the chains moving. We have to get rid of those mistakes.” — on the first few series for the Browns offense Thursday

RB ISAIAH CROWELL

“It’s the chemistry that we have to build, but I feel like we are out there chasing the same goal. That is just getting better and winning as a team. I feel like it won’t be that hard. Everybody just stick to their rules and do what is right, and everybody is a professional so I feel like it won’t be too hard.” – on building chemistry with the offensive line
