"Cautiously optimistic" is the way Cleveland Browns coach Eric Mangini described his hopes of seeing running back Jamal Lewis and kicker Phil Dawson back in action Sunday against Cincinnati.
"I think with all those guys it'll come down to the end of the week to see where they are," Mangini said.
Lewis (hamstring) and Dawson (groin) missed the Baltimore game and the first two practices for Cincinnati. Lewis worked on the stationary bike with a trainer today. Dawson was not on the field.
Lewis said before practice that he was taking it "day by day." Dawson hasn't appeared in the locker room the last two days.
