He is not set in stone as the starter, so it will be interesting to see if DeShone Kizer or Brock Osweiler can win the starting job, even though Kizer is a rookie and Osweiler's contract likely won't be picked up in 2018 even if he has a solid season.
Jackson said he hopes to settle on a starter before the Browns play their preseason opener against the Saints on August 10, but he concedes he might not have a decision by then.
Left guard Joel Bitonio, who is had Lisfranc surgery last October, has fully recovered and he took some reps during 11-on-11 work. "There will be markers as we go", Jackson said. "Joel has done a great job with his rehab, and again, credit to our medical staff for getting him up and going, but he put in the work".More news: Emergency Nursing Association Opposes Senate Legislation to Repeal ACA Without Significant Improvements

The first overall pick in the 2017 draft had a scare in June when he suffered a lateral foot sprain at the end of minicamp.

"I think it's real fan-friendly and more people will come out which our players will enjoy". "I think that is what was asked earlier: How will it all turn out?" Thomas will probably rest more than he practices this summer. "I'm going to monitor Joe. All those first-day-of-school type things go through your head just like you are going into fifth grade for the first time". "All those guys walk out there and compete to play, and I know - we talk about DeShone more than we do Brock and more than we do Kevin, but I think all four of those guys are going to have to have an opportunity to walk out there and compete, because I think that's the right way to run this".
Thomas has never missed a snap in his career.
