Browns have no luck
Browns lose punter for season in non-contact drill

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- In just their second practice in full pads, the Cleveland Browns had a valuable player go down without being touched.

And he's not coming back anytime soon.

Punter Reggie Hodges, one of the AFC's best last season, tore his Achilles tendon Tuesday and will be out for the season. Team president Mike Holmgren said he would have surgery.

After being helped to his feet, Hodges was carted off the field. He covered his face with a white towel to hide his disappointment.

"It's terrible," long snapper Ryan Pontbriand said following the Browns' fourth practice of training camp. "I couldn't even concentrate the rest of practice after it happened. Hopefully, he can come back from this."
