CLEVELAND (AP) — Browns wide receiver Antonio
Callaway has stepped out of bounds again.The NFL suspended Callaway four games without pay Friday for an unspecified violation of the league’s policy and program on substance abuse. Callaway will sit out the first four regular-season games.The 22-year-old can practice and play in preseason games before his suspension begins. He will be eligible to return to the Browns’ active roster on Sept. 30 Nick Chubb Jersey , the day after the team plays in Baltimore.Callaway started Thursday night’s exhibition opener against Washington because Browns coach Freddie Kitchens rested star receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry. He finished with three receptions for 42 yards.“I take full responsibility for my actions,” Callaway said in a news release sent by the Browns. “I made a mistake and I own that. I have taken steps to make myself better and I appreciate the Browns standing by me and supporting me during this time. I know there’s nothing I can say to regain trust; it will all be about my actions.”Callaway didn’t practice Friday after suffering a high ankle sprain against the Redskins. Kitchens credited Callaway with playing through the injury.Kitchens said Callaway will have his unwavering support so long as he does his part.“We’re not willing to put up with it. OK?” Kitchens said. “When you start talking in terms of that, the person that it’s affected has to be willing to commit to doing what’s right. So if he’s willing to commit to doing what’s right, then we’re willing to support him in every that we can, and that’s what we’re going to do until he proves us wrong.“He knows what he has to do, so we will evaluate the situation as it goes forward. But, yeah, if you talk about my relationship with Antonio, I’d say, ‘Yes, I like the kid.’ I think he’s a good person. Sometimes people lump these sort of things into being a bad person.“This is a great kid now. So we’re going to support him until he proves us otherwise. He knows what he has to do, though.”Browns general manager John Dorsey said the team was disappointed by Callaway’s actions.“Freddie and I have had a direct conversation with him about where we stand,” Dorsey said. “He understands our expectations of him. We will continue to support him as long as he remains committed to taking advantage of the resources made available to him by our club and the league to help him become the best version of himself as a person first and foremost.”The Browns drafted Callaway in the fourth round in 2018 despite his troubled stay at Florida, where he had a series of off-field issues ranging from a suspension for using stolen credit cards to a sexual assault allegation for which he was cleared.Before being drafted, he had a diluted urine sample at the NFL combine Chad Thomas Color Rush Jersey , and then Callaway got off to a rough start with the Browns last year when he was cited for marijuana possession following a traffic stop in August.He was recently demoted on the depth chart, and offensive coordinator Todd Monken said Callaway reported to camp out of shape.Now, it appears the Browns may have had an inkling of the suspension and dropped Callaway intentionally to give others more playing time.Kitchens would not comment on the timeline, but said Callaway has been improving on and off the field.“He’s been working his tail off,” Kitchens said. “He’s getting in shape. He’s been doing very well from a mental-error standpoint and he continues to work every day.”The speedy Callaway played in all 16 games as a rookie, starting 11. He finished with 43 catches for 586 yards and five touchdowns. He also returned five punts. CLEVELAND (AP) — Just over a week before their opener, the Browns still haven’t settled on a starting right guard.Coach Freddie Kitchens didn’t rule out the possibility of newly acquired lineman Wyatt Teller lining up in front of quarterback Baker Mayfield in Cleveland’s Sept. 8 season opener against the Tennessee Titans.The Browns traded for Teller on Thursday, sending a pair of 2020 draft picks — a fifth and sixth-rounder — to the Buffalo Bills. The move by general manager John Dorsey not only underscored the team’s need for depth up front, but also that the Browns hasn’t settled on a position they’ve spent the summer trying to fill.Last week, Kitchens penciled in Eric Kush as the starter, but that was before the arrival of Teller, who started seven games as a rookie last season. Teller passed his physical Friday and is ready to go.Kitchens is eager to see what Teller brings, and hinted he could push past Kush next week.“Eric is our right guard as we speak, but we haven’t even had Wyatt on the field yet,” Kitchens said during a teleconference. “So I would say , I mean, my first inkling would be to say yes, (Kush will start in Week 1), but we haven’t seen him (Teller) on the field yet. We’ve still got four practices to get through, and we’ll see where it all goes. Even though training camp has ended, there’s always competition.“There’s always going to be competition while I’m here, and I think you get the best out of everybody when you run it that way.”To this point, Kitchens has only seen Teller on film, but has liked the footage.“Anytime he goes in the game, he brings a toughness to it,” Kitchens said of Teller, drafted in the fifth round in 2018 by the Bills. “He plays with good technique most of the time and I think he gives us some depth at the position in the short term.”Teller went from being a potential starter to backup when the Bills overhauled their line in the offseason.Cleveland has been on a quest to fill the starting guard position since trading solid veteran Kevin Zeitler to the New York Giants in the mega deal that landed it superstar receiver Odell Beckham Jr.Since the start of training camp, the Browns have rotated 2018 second-round pick Austin Corbett, Kyle Kalis and Kush with the starting offense, but none of them has seized control of the job. Corbett has been dropped to second-team center and Kalis missed time with a concussion.Kush Britton Colquitt Jersey , who signed with Cleveland as a free agent in March after playing 18 games for Chicago last season, seemed to be the choice before Dorsey made another deal.And based on Dorsey’s free-wheeling track record, the Browns’ line might not be done changing.NOTES: Kitchens said suspended RB Kareem Hunt will need four to six weeks to recover from sports hernia surgery. Per NFL rules, Hunt will not be permitted to be in the team’s building during his eight-game suspension. The team’s request for an exception was denied by the league, and while the Browns would prefer Hunt to be around, Kitchens said they’ll make the best of it. “Of course, we would like him here, we feel like we offer the best support for him,” he said. “He’s comfortable with being here, he trusts us here, things like that. We’ll develop a plan for him.” … Rookie OL Drew Forbes sustained “a minor knee issue” in Thursday’s win over Detroit, Kitchens said.
