"Two helmets kind of hit the wrong way," he said. "It was kind of a freak thing."

After Miller was wheeled from the building, Chudzinski huddled his players and promised to give them an update when he got one. And about an hour later he got the news that the 24-year-old was "alert and awake."

"Anytime that happens you just pray and just hope for the best and hope everything is OK," Jackson said. "Coach gave us word that he is fine and that's a good thing. But those are the challenges and the scares that when you sign up for the game there's a possibility of something like that happening. I'll tell you what, it made everyone realize that at any moment anything can happen."

Chudzinski was proud of the way his team handled the difficult event.

"I thought they did a great job," he said. "It really says a lot about them, our coaches, our staff and our players to be able to do that. This team is a family and when something happens to a family member like that, it's tough. These guys did a great job of staying focused and getting a lot of work done that we needed to get done."

Miller was drafted by the Browns in the fifth round in 2012 out of Colorado. He appeared in eight games as a rookie, and got extended time in the fourth quarter of the season finale at Pittsburgh after John Greco sustained a knee injury. He was a four-year letter winner at Colorado, setting a school record with 48 career starts. He missed just two offensive plays over his final three seasons.

Thomas, who has become close to Miller, was thrilled to hear he was doing better.

"When we heard it was not neck-related, that was fantastic news and you feel great about that," he said. "He's a nice guy. He's real easygoing. He's a hard worker. He's really kind of a gym-rat type guy and him and I have become good friends in the last year for sure."

NOTES: DT Phil Taylor (calf strain) and TE Kellen Davis (knee strain) returned to practice on a limited basis. Taylor took part in individual drills and was held out of team sessions. ... OL Oneil Cousins will miss a "couple weeks" with a sprained ankle, Chudzinski said. ... The Browns will be in full pads for the first time Sunday. ... The Browns did some extensive work on screen passes, a staple of Chudzinski's offense.
