On-Field Observations: No days off for Jarvis Landry

Jarvis Landry has been offered days of rest throughout the first nine days of Browns training camp, but he hasn't taken coach Hue Jackson up on a single one of them.

Even on Saturday, when Jackson did his best to keep Landry on the sidelines during the team's mock game, the Pro Bowl wide receiver still came away with a touchdown.

"It is a chore to get Landry off of the field," Jackson said. "You almost have to take his helmet and threaten to kick him out of here because he wants to be out here all of the time."

Jackson did the next closest thing, removing Landry from the field after the early touchdown and putting players such as Antonio Callaway and Rashard Higgins in his place.

"He did not take it, we took it for him," Jackson said. "Normally, those guys would come out here and not dress to practice. I know that we cannot do it that way. Let him dress, let him go at it a little bit and then we take him out. That is the way that we have to go about it, because he is not going to go out. He wants to compete the whole time.

"Two big days in a row like that, that is when guys start getting something with their legs. It was smart on his part that he did not fight to get back in, because he knows that when you are out, you are out. But, I do love his want-to."

-- WR Corey Coleman was limited during the practice with what Jackson described as a sore hamstring.

-- LB Genard Avery (groin), DL Caleb Brantley (thigh), DL Trevon Coley (ankle), LB Justin Currie (concussion), TE Seth DeValve (quad), DL Daniel Ekuale (calf), OL Desmond Harrison (toe-PUP) and OL Kevin Zeitler (calf). Jackson said he doesn't believe Brantley's injury, which was suffered during Friday's scrimmage, is serious.

-- Callaway had a rare drop early in Saturday's practice but was able to find immediate redemption. He caught a deep ball down the right sideline later in the series to set up Landry's touchdown.

The defense notched a few interceptions during the practice, as Joe Schobert picked off Baker Mayfield and trotted into the end zone against a second-team offense that was backed up against its own goal line. Mike Jordan and T.J. Carrie also had interceptions during the session.

-- The Browns' second off day of training camp is set for Sunday. They'll have two more practices before traveling to New York on Wednesday. The preseason opener against the Giants will kick off at 7 p.m.
