Green might still have to carry the load

BEREA, Ohio -- Browns running back Lee Suggs practiced
Friday but is still questionable for their game at Dallas this
weekend.
Suggs missed the opener against Baltimore with a neck stinger.
He practiced three times this week but none involved high-contact
drills, coach Butch Davis said.
"He does more every day," Davis said. "The trainers have
asked him to do a little more. It still remains a medical
decision."
If Suggs can't play Sunday, William Green will get the bulk of
carries with James Jackson and Dee Brown as backups. Green rushed
for 65 yards on 22 carries in the Browns' 20-3 victory against the Ravens
last week.
Suggs rushed for 186 yards and two touchdowns in Cleveland's
season finale in 2003 and appeared to win the starting job over
Green before getting hurt two days before the Browns' last
exhibition game.
"I've been rarin' to go the last two weeks," he said. "I feel
good, I feel like I can play."
Defensive tackle Gerard Warren, who injured a pectoral muscle
against the Ravens, practiced Friday. Earlier this week, Davis said
he expected Warren to play Sunday.
Defensive end Ebenezer Ekuban is also questionable with a groin
injury. Ekuban played five seasons for the Cowboys before signing
as a free agent with Cleveland in March.
