CLEVELAND - There are two ways you can look at the second day of training camp for the Browns.
The interceptions and pass breakups could mean it was a dominant day for the defense, or it could mean the offense stunk.
Quarterbacks Brandon Weeden, Jason Campbell and Brian Hoyer collectively had a day to forget. Weeden had a pass intercepted by Joe Haden and returned for a touchdown. Campbell met the same fate when Buster Skrine jumped a route on a quick out. Back-to-back passes by Hoyer should have been intercepted both times by Johnson Bademosi.
"I think the secondary made some really nice plays," coach Rob Chudzinski said after joking he might try something differently on offense today. "They really broke well on the ball on a couple of them. Again, we will just have to look at the tape and see where we go from there on both sides of the ball."
It's early in camp and there's plenty of time remaining for the offense to improve, but as of now the defense is clearly the better of the two units.
Chudzinski won't jump the gun in worrying about the development of the quarterbacks, Weeden in particular.
"It's always something you have to go up and look at the tape," Chudzinski said. "Sometimes the routes are off. Sometimes the protection is off. It can be a lot of different things, as well as just the quarterback is throwing interceptions."
INJURY UPDATE: Defensive tackle Phil Taylor (leg) and tight end Kellen Davis (knee) missed practice. Both worked out inside and, according to Chudzinski, should be back on the field soon.
Receiver David Nelson practiced after sitting out day one. Nelson had knee surgery last season with the Buffalo Bills after suffering an injury in the first game.
PUTTING ON PADS: The first two practices were conducted in lightweight shell (shoulder) protection. That changes today with the first practice in full pads.
Chudzinski won't allow players to be taken to the ground, but there are always over-aggressive defenders that stretch the rule.
"We're going to hit," Chudzinski said. "We won't be tackling to the ground. That doesn't mean that nobody will be on the ground, but we are not tackling to the ground. We'll thud up and wrap up. It'll be good work for us. It's about time to get the pads."
GET WITH IT: Steelers coach Mike Tomlin recently opened a twitter account to keep fans up to date on happenings. Chudzinski isn't sure he's ready to take the step into social media.
"I'm not a real technology guy," he said. "I wouldn't even know how to get started on that. I have a hard enough time with my cell phone."
CAMPING OUT: Offensive tackle Oniel Cousins rolled an ankle late in practice and left the field early. Chudzinski termed the injury day-to-day Cornerback Joe Haden looks great in the early stages. He read Weeden's pass to Josh Gordon and easily jumped the route. "He's been real active out there," Chudzinski said. "Again, looking back yesterday compared to today, I noticed he was really focusing on some of the things that the coaches have been talking to him about."... Receiver Greg Little did a nice job of using his size and strength to pull the ball in from a defender on a deep sideline route. Little is off to a good start Weeden has made a habit of targeting Josh Gordon. As of now receiver Davone Bess hasn't been as noticeable. With Gordon missing the first two games because of a suspension, that will have to change.
