Training Camp Log, Day 15: Stump Mitchell reflects on the old days of camp

OLD SCHOOL: Run game coordinator/running backs coach Stump Mitchell doesn’t bother telling his players about NFL training camp when he played the position from 1981-89.

“Nah, they wouldn’t believe it,” he said. “You have some guys on this team and every team in the NFL that could have played back in the day because of their attitude — Nick (Chubb), Kareem (Hunt), Odell (Beckham Jr.), Jarvis (Landry). But then you have some guys who don’t know the difference between injury and pain. There’s a big difference.”

NEWS OF THE DAY: Safety Grant Delpit left practice after aggravating a right hamstring injury. Left tackle Jedrick Wills Jr. stayed on the field but watched most of practice after sustaining an apparent leg injury that he tried to walk off.

On the final day of camp open to the public, many players walked toward the bleachers to thank fans for attending.

CAMPER OF THE DAY: Baker Mayfield made two throws in the red zone that showed his accuracy and arm strength. He lofted a ball just over the fingertips of linebacker Anthony Walker Jr. for a touchdown to tight end Austin Hooper, then threw a dart to Hunt over the middle that arrived so fast safety Ronnie Harrison Jr. couldn’t make a play on it.

PLAY OF THE DAY: Case Keenum thought he had receiver Rashard Higgins open on the goal line, but safety Jovante Moffatt closed in time to break up the out route and save a touchdown.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “It was a big shock, I ain’t going to lie. But coming up here, Coach Woods did a good job making everything transparent for me and allowing me to come in and play and show what I could do. A big shock at first, but it was a smooth transition.” — Harrison on being traded from the Jaguars to the Browns on Sept. 3 last year and getting comfortable in coordinator Joe Woods’ system.

THURSDAY’S SCHEDULE: Practice with the New York Giants is at 2:25 p.m. It’s closed to the public.
