Grant Delpit and Greedy Williams each suffered what would prove to be season-ending injuries in the same training camp practice last summer. The duo was expected to play significant roles in the Cleveland Browns secondary, and they were sorely missed.

Both were back on the practice field on Wednesday in the OTA session open to the media. According to head coach Kevin Stefanski, they’re progressing just fine and should be ready to roll when the regular season starts.

“They’re working through it. I think they’re both on pace. They’re doing a great job,” Stefanski said of the DBs. “We’re going to be smart about it as we ramp them up through the next couple of weeks. And into training camp, we’re going to be smart about it. They’re hitting all of their benchmarks.”

Williams weighed in on Delpit, his former LSU teammate, after Wednesday’s practice.

“(Delpit) looked good. He looks like he’s ready to go,” Williams said via Zoom. “He has gotten bigger, faster. I ask him every day how his leg is feeling. How’s the injury feeling? He’s giving me positive feedback, which I want to hear.”

Delpit projects as one of the team’s starting safeties. He was on track to start right away as a rookie before tearing his Achilles in August. Williams started as a rookie in 2019 but never saw the field in 2020 with a nerve injury in his shoulder. He will compete with first-rounder Greg Newsome and free agent Troy Hill for playing time opposite Pro Bowler Denzel Ward.
