About a dozen Browns players have been stricken with the flu, and Browns coach Eric Mangini will scale back practice today because the team is so shorthanded.
Players who will sit out today include Jerome Harrison, Alex Mack, Anthony Madison, Brodney Pool, Shaun Rogers, Robert Royal, Lawrence VickersCorey Williams and Kamerion Wimbley.
"We'll cut back on some reps, take some plays off, and increase the time between reps,'' said Mangini. "We'll try to get the guys some extra rest, just be as vigilant as possible with this. A lot of these (cases) were new this morning.''
