Testy in Cleveland

A little drama in Cleveland on Wednesday: Browns cornerback Joe Haden best corner in the AFC North, remember? got tossed from practice for being too physical and exited after exchanging harsh words with coach Pat Shurmur.

Later in the day, Shurmur said everything was cool. He called it a dead issue. However, immediately after the practice with the confrontation, Shurmur had said, as reported by ESPNCleveland: This was practice No. 21. Weve had 21 walk-throughs. As you might expect, none of us have had enough sleep in the last month, and we get very emotional.

As for the incident itself, Shurmur didnt want to talk about it.

Thats between me and the player. I have a great deal of respect for Joe. My only apology is that I used bad language and the fans were here to see it.

Though he wasnt addressing Haden directly, Shurmur did talk about how the Browns want to limit how much contact they have during practices.

I think its important that we practice smart, he said. You have to be able to practice at game speed without tackling. I want all of our guys to make it to the horse race.

Horse race, eh? Well, we all know how jumpy some horses can get in the paddock.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Left guard competition heating up

Kick off your Monday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. The Ravens are still looking for a left guard and the competition is "wide open" according to Ravens media. Last week, Coach Harbaugh tried out 2017 fifth-round pick Jermaine Eluemunor in the spot, acknowledging his hard work there.

2. Linebacker Kenny Young is expected to be a big playmaker this season. Now that C.J. Mosley is gone, Young is expected to fill that void. “I’m not going to make expectations for myself so soon, but what I expect to do right from the get-go is compete hard and make plays,” Young said to Ravens media. “My expectation is to make plays. That’s it. Make plays.”

Looking Ahead:

July 15: 4 p.m. ET deadline to get a long-term deal done with designated franchise tag players.

The 2019 NFL schedule is set! See the Baltimore Ravens defend the AFC North at M&T Bank Stadium this season. Get your tickets now at www.BaltimoreRavens.com/tickets.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: 'Jack-of-all-trades' QB Trace McSorely excited for new role

The weekend is here and before you make plans, catch up on the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. QB Trace McSorely is excited for his "Jack-of-all-trades" role this upcoming season with the Ravens. Expect him to be returning punts like New Orleans' backup QB Taysom Hill. The sixth-round draft pick is the third-string QB on the depth chart and will likely have work to do for a roster spot.

2. Wednesday Pro Football Focus ranked Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram No. 2 among the best rushing tandems ahead of the 2019 NFL season.' Last year Jackson had 130 rushing attempts and with a bruiser like Ingram by his side that number may go down but keep the production up.

Looking Ahead:

July 15: 4 p.m. ET deadline to get a long-term deal done with designated franchise tag players.
