Browns' Mingo improving from bruised lung

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns rookie linebacker Barkevious Mingo rode a stationary bike and is expected to do some running as he recovers from a bruised lung.

Mingo sustained the unusual injury in an exhibition game on Aug. 15 against Detroit. Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said Mingo was going to "run a little bit" on Tuesday. Mingo did not do any running during the portion of practice open to the media.

Mingo will not play in Thursday's exhibition finale against Chicago and it's not yet known if the No. 6 overall pick in this year's draft will play in the Sept. 8 season opener against Miami. Chudzinski reiterated there was no timetable on Mingo's return.

Chudzinski said the Browns have ruled out placing Mingo on the short-term injured reserve list, which would sideline him for half the season.
