Mangini: Browns' roster OK despite flu
BEREA, Ohio -- Nine of the 10 Cleveland Browns who missed practice the past two days with the flu are back with the team.
Backup defensive end Corey Williams was the only player still at home, and coach Eric Mangini said he didn't anticipate needing the NFL roster exemption put in place for a team besieged by swine flu.
Mangini said there have been no new cases since 12 players missed Wednesday. He expects to have a nearly complete roster for Sunday's game against Green Bay.
Two of the Browns tested positive for Influenza A, of which H1N1 is a strain. Mangini has not received test results on the other 10 players.
