Browns' Wright at practice after flipping his car

From the Associated Press:

CLEVELAND -- Browns cornerback Eric Wright was back at practice hours after flipping his car on a wet highway entrance ramp. He may play Sunday against Green Bay.

Wright rolled his Mercedes early Friday when his vehicle slid on wet pavement. He was examined and released at MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland.

The Browns sent him for more tests and Wright was back at the team's training facility in Berea, Ohio, in time for practice.

Coach Eric Mangini was hopeful Wright would be able to play in Sunday's home game against the Packers. Mangini did not know if Wright would be cleared to practice.

Wright rode a stationary bike and appeared uninjured during the 30-minute period he was observed by reporters.

Mangini spoke with Wright before practice.

"I'm really happy he's safe," he said.

Police said Wright's accident happened at 2:10 a.m. Mangini did not make an issue of Wright being out at that time.

"I wouldn't necessarily be out at 2:10 in the morning, but we don't have curfew year-round," Mangini said. "I'd rather everybody be home, but guys do go out. You don't want to see anybody in a bad accident or any situation like that. I much prefer that guys were in, but it's a personal decision."

Police did not ticket Wright for the crash. They said he was entering Interstate 490 from Interstate 77 east of downtown when he lost control. His car suffered substantial damage and was and towed.
