Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain Dealer wrote today:

Nose tackle Shaun Rogers (who suffered a serious leg injury late last season), who still hasn't passed his physical, did some work on blocking sleds with a trainer nearby. It appeared a sign of progress that Rogers might soon come off PUP and rejoin his teammates. But coach Eric Mangini threw water on that thought when he said, "I don't think we're close right now. I think we're a little ways away."

Rogers’s absence is critical. The Browns are prepared to go with Ahtyba Rubin at nose tackle, but Rogers’s presence would still be sorely missed on the edges. Starting ends Kenyon Coleman and Robaire Smith were both underwhelming last season. (The former hasn’t shown the same level as energy that he did as a backup for the Cowboys and Jets, and the latter is in his 30’s and wore down late in the schedule).
