Cleveland Browns running back John Kelly Jr. carried the ball eight times for 20 yards and lost a fumble while adding a three-yard catch in an 18-18 tie vs. the Philadelphia Eagles in preseason action on Thursday. Kelly got the start but his fumble was a costly one as it came on Philly's one-yard line and short-circuited a 75-yard drive on Cleveland's opening possession. Kelly has been battling for backup carries this preseason but it appears that he has moved behind Demetric Felton Jr. He will get one more chance to make his case next week against the Kansas City Chiefs in Cleveland's final preseason game.
