The Browns have started training camp for the 2017 season.

It’s late July in Cleveland, Ohio, and that means that the Browns are finally back and getting ready for the upcoming football season. Coming into training camp, there were a few big questions that needed answers:

Is Myles Garrett looking healthy? Who has the edge to win the starting quarterback job? Can the Browns stay healthy?

Myles Garrett

Garrett scared fans earlier in the offseason by limping off the field after some organized team activities, but he arrived to training camp seemingly ready to go. There was no boot on his foot and onlookers frequently commented on Garrett’s speed and explosiveness coming off of the edge.

Obviously it’s only the first day of training camp, but things are looking good for the rookie Garrett so far.

Kessler vs Osweiler vs Kizer

The day before camp started, Hue Jackson came out and said that Cody Kessler was going to get the first crack at the starting reps in camp, giving him the slight edge in the quarterback competition. However, the Browns have frequently stated that this is a quarterback competition, so expect Osweiler and Kizer to see some first team reps as camp progresses.

Kizer was seen staying out after practice throwing footballs and practicing after most of the rest of the team had left.

Injuries

There were some injury scares early in the day, with Dan Vitale, Kenny Britt and others leaving the field, but Jackson assured reporters afterwards that the injuries were not serious.

Overall

Corey Coleman got mentioned a few times as being a standout on the first day, but for the most part it was a fairly standard training camp opening. The coaching staff still seems optimistic as the regular season approaches.
