AKRON, Ohio (USA Today) — The Cleveland Browns fans who trekked to Akron for the team’s first scrimmage saw Johnny Manziel run and they saw Brian Hoyer throw, but they didn’t see any touchdowns from the first- or second-team offense.

That should be the biggest takeaway and the biggest concern coming out of the Browns’ annual scrimmage at the University of Akron’s InfoCision Stadium. No matter who winds up winning the starting quarterback job, whether it’s stable veteran Hoyer, or the exciting but raw first-round pick Manziel, the Browns offense could be in trouble.

The Browns will say that the offensive struggles Saturday, the first unscripted practice of the preseason under new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, is part of the learning process, part of adjusting to a new language and roster full of new players and playing without No. 1 receiver Josh Gordon. The Browns will also say that one of the reasons the offense has not looked good is because the defense is playing pretty great.
