According to Multiple reports out of Cleveland, Browns rookie linebacker Tony Fields II was out on the first full-squad practice of camp after suffering another foot injury. Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski said the injury occurred during recent on-field work with rookies and quarterbacks before the entire team reported to camp Tuesday with no indication on the severity of the injury or when he will return. 

Fields II missed all of the rookie minicamp in May after showing up with an injury he sustained on the opposite foot.
