Browns' Duke Johnson: Excused for personal reasons

Johnson missed practice Wednesday for personal reasons, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Interim coach Gregg Williams is hopeful Johnson can return from the excused absence to take part in Thursday's session. It won't be a concern for Johnson's Week 14 availability unless the running back is still away from the team Friday. The Browns will play host this weekend to a slumping Carolina team that has been torched by opposing wideouts and tight ends this season while mostly holding running backs in check (105.2 scrimmage yards per game, 11 touchdowns in 12 games).
