  • preseason were announced yet." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesDawgs EDTThe order of the Cleveland Browns’ 2019 preseason schedule was released on Tuesday. The team does not have a nationally televised preseason game as of now. Here is a rundown of the schedule:Preseason Schedule for the BrownsPreseason Game 1: Washington Redskins at Cleveland Browns (August 8-12)Preseason Game 2: Cleveland Browns at Indianapolis Colts (August 15-19)Preseason Game 3: Cleveland Browns at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (August 22-26)Preseason Game 4: Detroit Lions at Cleveland Browns (August 29-September 1)This is a different type of preseason schedule for the Browns [url=][/url] , who only have the Lions as return opponents from a season ago. As previously announced, the Browns will travel early to Indianapolis to practice against them a few times leading up to the second preseason game. The Browns’ dress rehearsal game will come against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the team that new offensive coordinator Todd Monken worked for in 2018.The regular season schedule will be announced later this month. At that time, the firm dates/times of the preseason games will also be announced. Jay Crawford and Tim Couch will return for the second year in a row to call the Browns’ preseason action. With running back Duke Johnson having skipped the Browns’ entire offseason program, somebody had to take his place. That somebody is Dontrell Hilliard.The Browns are pumping up Hilliard’s offseason, preferring to talk about who is at organized team activities rather than who isn’t. “I would love to see Duke as part of the team in September [url=]Kevin Zeitler Jersey[/url] ,” Browns running backs coach Stump Mitchell said, via Steve Doerschuk of “I know it’s voluntary, but I would also like to see him take part in this camp. When you don’t, you give somebody an opportunity. Dontrell has done a helluva job taking advantage of the opportunity.”Hilliard made the Browns’ roster as an undrafted rookie last year, but he played only 58 snaps on offense with no carries and nine receptions behind Carlos Hyde, Nick Chubb and Johnson.With the Browns missing Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry [url=]Joel Bitonio Color Rush Jersey[/url] , Hilliard also has practiced at receiver this offseason.“Being down some receivers, Dontrell has played some receiver, which is making him very valuable to this team,” Mitchell said. “He can do everything well. His mindset is that he belongs here.”Kareem Hunt will miss the first half of the season while serving a suspension, and who knows what happens with Johnson. That leaves Hilliard in prime position not only to make the roster but to contribute even more than he did last season.
