AFC Notes: Browns, Dolphins, Patriots

Browns

  • Tom Pelissero reports that Browns rookie WR Antonio Callaway pled not guilty last week to two misdemeanor charges stemming from August traffic stop.
  • Callaway’s case will now head to Berea municipal court and probably won’t be on the docket for weeks.
  • According to Peliserro, Callaway’s attorney said they’ll fight the misdemeanor marijuana charge and his driver’s license issue is expected to be resolved.
  • Browns placed DB Terrance Mitchell on injured reserve. (NFLTR)
  • Browns promoted DB Jeremiah McKinnon to their active roster.

Dolphins

Dolphins DE William Hayes, who suffered a season-ending ACL tear while trying to avoid landing on Derek Carr with all of his weight while sacking him, tells Mike Garafolo that “frustrating as hell” to have his season end because of league’s emphasis on quarterback hits.

“It’s very frustrating because any guy who’s played with me, they know what I put myself through in the offseason and every week just to get to the next game. To have that stripped away from me by trying to look out for somebody else’s well-being and not my own is tough,” Hayes said. “You’re basically telling us, ‘You can tackle everybody on the field one way, but this one guy, you’re going to have to figure out how you can torque a 280-pound body in different ways to take the pressure off him.’

“It’s frustrating as hell.”

Patriots

Patriots HC Bill Belichick says he’s been impressed with WR Josh Gordon up to this point.

“Josh has worked hard,” Belichick said, via Phil Perry of NBC Sports Boston. “He’s a smart kid. He’s got quite a bit of experience. He’s obviously played in a lot of different systems, different coordinators and so forth.

“I think in one way or another he’s probably experienced things that we’re doing in one of those systems that he’s been involved in. He’s been able to pick things up quickly and has experience doing different things. It was good to get him out there.
