Gardner Minshew helps Eagles edge Browns

Gardner Minshew completed 14 of 17 passes for 142 yards to help the visiting Philadelphia Eagles beat the Cleveland Browns 21-20 Sunday in a preseason game.

Kenneth Gainwell led the Eagles (1-1) in rushing with 46 yards and one touchdown on 11 carries, and Deon Cain had team highs of five catches for 66 yards.

For the Browns (1-1), Joshua Dobbs started at quarterback and completed 14 of 20 throws for 141 yards, and backup Josh Rosen was 7-of-20 for 88 yards.

Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson, who was suspended for 11 games last week for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy amid accusations of sexual misconduct, did not play.

Even though Watson’s suspension doesn’t begin until Aug. 30, Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said Thursday the quarterback won’t play again in the preseason. He started in the Browns’ 24-13 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Aug. 12 but completed just one of five passes for 7 yards.

Watson will be eligible to return to the Browns on Dec. 4 for their Week 13 game against the Houston Texans, his former team. He will be permitted to begin practicing again on Nov. 14.
