Randall appeared to injure his left leg during Wednesday's practice, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal reports.
Head coach Hue Jackson doesn't believe Randall is dealing with anything serious, but it's reasonable to assume the safety will undergo further medical testing in the near future. We should know more about the situation sooner rather than later.
Randall underwent hand surgery back in January and was traded from the Packers to the Browns just two months later. Now, it looks like he has finally managed to get on the practice field with his new team in a full capacity, suggesting he'll be ready to go for the start of the season as a free safety.
Cleveland acquired Randall this offseason through a trade with Green Bay. While the former first-round pick endured his fair share of struggles while playing cornerback with the Packers, Cleveland thinks he'll be better suited to play safety in the AFC North.
Randall (hand) will most likely play free safety for the Browns in 2018, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.
Per the report, Randall -- who was traded from the Packers in return for DeShone Kizer -- is open to the position switch and will slot in opposite of Jabril Peppers in the secondary. This move, however, is dependent on whether or not the Browns can improve their current cornerback situation via free agency and/or the 2018 NFL Draft. If the team fails to make an upgrade, Cleveland may decide to keep Randall at corner for the time being.
A first-round pick in the 2015 draft, Randall wasn't able to become the No. 1 cornerback the Packers desired. That said, he still produced when on the field, averaging 3.7 tackles per game and picking off 10 passes in 39 outings. With Jason McCourty and Jamar Taylor under contract for the upcoming campaign, Randall may have to settle for a slot corner role in his new climes.
