Scrimmage would be nice, but..

Here's another sign Pat Shurmur is all business in his first year coaching the Browns: A scrimmage today would probably attract more fans to Family Day at Cleveland Browns Stadium, but Shurmur believes he can accomplish more with a normal practice, so that's what he has planned.

Still, this is an important step for rookie defensive linemen Phil Taylor and Jabaal Sheard. 11-on-11 will be part of the practice, and the rookies will be fired up to be in Cleveland Browns Stadium for the first time. This is also the next step for rookie receiver Greg Little. The field, by the way, is so perfect it looks like artificial turf.

Fans are starting to file in for the 2 p.m. start. The smart ones are going to the first row on the lower deck so they can have prime spots for autographs at the end of practice. Rain is forecast for around 3 p.m., but right now the stadium is sitting under blue skies.
