BEREA, OHIO (AP) - Browns starting cornerback Eric Wright was kept out of practice after injuring his right leg during Cleveland’s morning workout.

Wright got hurt during 7-on-7 drills about halfway through the first of the Browns’ two practices Tuesday. He was attended to on the sideline by trainers, who put an ice wrap on Wright’s leg. He limped to the team’s training facility for further treatment.

Wright’s injury appeared to be to his hamstring. It’s not yet known if it will keep him out of Saturday’s exhibition opener against Green Bay.

Before the evening practice session, Wright walked onto the field without a limp but did not have his helmet. He worked out on a hand bike as his teammates warmed up nearby.

A second-round pick in 2007, Wright had four interceptions last season. If he is out for any extended period, rookie Joe Haden would likely take his spot.

Haden is excited about the possibility of more playing time.

“Real excited,” said the seventh overall pick. “It definitely means a whole lot more playing time and that’s just more time to make plays. The only way that you make plays is out on the field. If I get a whole lot more time, I’m looking forward to that.”
