Neck injury limits Browns RB Lewis in practice

BEREA, Ohio -- Cleveland Browns running back Jamal Lewis was limited in practice Wednesday because of a neck injury.

Lewis showed nice bursts of speed while running for 57 yards in the Browns' 34-20 season-opening loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. He went down with an apparent stinger in his neck after a 15-yard run in the first half.

Linebacker David Bowens (knee), wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi (shoulder) and nose tackle Shaun Rogers (foot) were listed as limited on Browns coach Eric Mangini's injury report. It was the first injury report completed by Mangini since the NFL fined him $25,000 for his role with the New York Jets in failing to report quarterback Brett Favre's arm injury last season.

Browns rookie running back James Davis also didn't participate in practice because of a shoulder injury suffered against the Vikings.

The Browns will play at Denver on Sunday. Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey (ankle) and safety Brian Dawkins (hand) didn't practice Wednesday.
