Freddie Kitchens was asked multiple questions about the fullback position after Monday's practice.
Yes, it's Day 14 of training camp and the head coach has talked after every single one of them, but it's an interesting topic given the team's recent roster moves.
On Saturday, Cleveland added its first traditional fullback to the roster in Joe Kerridge. One day later, Orson Charles, who was listed as the first and only fullback on last week's depth chart, was released. A handful of the team's tight ends have lined up in the backfield, but the majority of their time has been spent at typical tight end spots.
"We are going to rep all of them at it and see who comes out of the mix," Kitchens said. "The more versatile you can be, the better off they are as a player and the better off we are as a team. We will continue to rep a bunch of them.
"We are going to run the football, and it is important to have guys that can block.”
Kerridge is a fullback through and through. In 12 career games with the Packers, he posted one carry and one reception. At the end of Monday's practice, Kerridge's helmet popped off his head and he kept on looking for people to block.
Still, nothing is set in stone. Asked if the Browns could field a 53-man roster without a true fullback, Kitchens said, "definitely."
Here's what else you might have missed from Monday's practice.
