5 things to know about Saturday's Orange and Brown Scrimmage


With Saturday's Orange and Brown Scrimmage in Columbus right around the corner, we decided to go straight to the source to get the finer




details of what to expect when the Browns run through the tunnel of The Shoe for a second straight year.

The following are Browns coach Hue Jackson's answers to our five pressing questions about the team's trek to the state capital.

1. What should fans expect to see at Saturday's Orange and Brown Scrimmage?

"They're going to get an opportunity to see our football team, all of our team, all 90 of us, as we have an opportunity to be at Ohio State's stadium and have a chance to see how far we've come along."

2. What are the benefits of getting the team out of Berea for a day and taking them to a place like The Horseshoe?

"I think it's always good to break up the monotony of just the everyday training camp life. I think the guys are excited about being in another stadium and having another opportunity to compete against each other."

3. What is a mock game?

"A mock game will really prepare our team for next Friday's exhibition game at Green Bay. We'll go through all the different situations that may happen in the game from pre-game to halftime to starting the second half. I think it's really important we find out how we go through that process."

4. What does it mean to the team to see thousands and thousands outside of Northeast Ohio come to watch them practice?

"I think our players are very excited to get out in front of our fans and show the progress we've made. I think it's always great to be amongst people who are really rooting for us and wanting to see us be successful. It's just an opportunity for us to give back to them for everything they do supporting us."

5. What should fans be most excited to see? The rookies? The offense?

"I think they should be really excited about seeing our team. Obviously, everybody wants to see our rookies perform and some of our vets as well. But I think what's most important is they see a team that's a team, and they're really excited to go out and compete and show that they have gotten better over the last several days."


When does it start?

The practice begins at 3 p.m. and runs to 5:30 p.m. but all of the fun outside the stadium on Dawg Pound Drive, where the team will feature many engaging pregame opportunities for all fans to enjoy, kicks off at noon

If I can't make it, is there a way I can watch what's happening?

You can also follow Browns senior writer Andrew Gribble (AndrewGribble), staff writer Patrick Maks (@maksimuspatrick) and Cleveland Browns Daily host Nathan Zegura (@NathanZegura) on Twitter.

What's the team doing before the Orange and Brown Scrimmage and what lies ahead after it?

On Friday evening, the Browns will hold a practice in Berea that Jackson has described as a "scrimmage-type setting" in which the players "kind of get after it."

"We're going to put the ball down and play," Jackson said. "It'll be like the siren is going the whole time. That is what that is truly all about."

The team is off Sunday before practicing Monday-Wednesday. The Browns will travel to Green Bay on Thursday and play in their first preseason game Friday, Aug. 12, at Lambeau Field.
