Desmond Bryant has wrist surgery
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3:08 pm ET) Browns defensive end Desmond Bryant underwent surgery on his injured wrist, and coach Mike Pettine isn't sure he'll be ready for the season opener, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Bryant had 31 tackles and 3.5 sacks in 12 games last year.

Justin Hunter basically unstoppable on fades
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3:04 pm ET) Titans receiver Justin Hunter is making the fade pattern "look all too easy," reports the Tennessean. When the team get near the goal line, Jake Locker lofts a pass toward the corner of the end zone and "the 6-4, 203-pound Hunter turns into the Titans' version of a jack-in-the-box, leaping over defenders to haul in a touchdown pass – just as he did in Friday's loss to the Saints," the paper said.

"He's so big and so long, and he has the ability to jump and he has such a big catch radius," Locker told the paper. "You're able to put the ball a lot of places to give him a chance. That puts a lot of pressure on the defense at that point."

Hunter beat the Chargers with a leaping 34-yard touchdown catch in the closing seconds last year. He's looking for a lot more opportunities in the end zone this season.

"They want to use my big frame, so they throw it to me there," Hunter said. "The cornerback has to turn his back at some point to try to defend me. That's when I can use my leaping ability to go over the top of him – before he gets a chance to figure it out."

S-Jax continues to work on the side

Brian Hoyer won't have quick hook
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:43 pm ET) Browns coach Mike Pettine told reporters he doesn't want starting quarterback Brian Hoyer "looking over his shoulder if he makes one bad throw." Pettine said theres' no leash on Hoyer and no package for rookie Johnny Manziel.

Pettine announced his choice to the team Wednesday. Hoyer will start Week 1 at Pittsburgh.
