Kendricks (ankle) was back on the field Thursday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Kendricks -- who underwent offseason ankle surgery -- looks to be back at full health after sitting out minicamp. Signed as a free agent after spending the last six seasons in Philadelpha, the outside linebacker will see work behind Christian Kirksey.
Kendricks (ankle) did not participate in mandatory minicamp but head coach Hue Jackson expects the linebacker to be on the field for training camp, Pat McManamon of ESPN reports.
Kendricks is likely in recovery from March ankle surgery, so his absence for minicamp was likely expected even before Kendricks signed with Cleveland this past April. When healthy, Kendricks will play a key role in a strong Browns linebacking corps that otherwise includes Christian Kirksey and Jamie Collins at OLB.
Kendricks was earlier rumored to have inked a deal with Cleveland, but ardently denied these murmurs when questioned. As it turns out, the seventh-year linebacker will end up with the Browns anyways and will reportedly start. The team already boasts a strong linebacker corps with Jamie Collins, Joe Schobert and Christian Kirksey, so it will be interesting to see how Kendricks fits into defensive coordinator Gregg Williams' scheme in 2018.
Kendricks (ankle) has disputed the original report that he has agreed to terms with the Browns, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Kendricks vehemently denied original reports that he had signed with Cleveland, stating that the news was inaccurate. For the moment, the veteran is unsigned, and it remains to be seen whether he will end up joining the Browns.
Kendricks has spent his entire career in Philadelphia and is coming off a 2017 campaign where he tallied 77 tackles and two sacks across 15 games. He was released this offseason to clear some cap space, however, and now joins Cleveland in what should be a very talented linebacking corps that already includes the likes of Jamie Collins, Joe Schobert and Christian Kirksey. As a result of the already impressive group, Kendricks could have trouble matching his production from last season in Philadelphia.
