Mangini responds to criticism from RB Lewis

Friday, November 13, 2009 - 11:49am

Browns coach Eric Mangini has defended his practices one day after running back Jamal Lewis said Cleveland's players are being worked too hard.

Lewis complained that Mangini was wearing out his players during the week with 2 1/2- to 3-hour workouts and they had nothing left by kickoff on Sunday. Mangini said on Friday that he and Lewis, a team captain, had a "good conversation" on Thursday and discussed their differences.
