BEREA, Ohio -- Injured Cleveland Browns starting quarterback Jake Delhomme and backup Seneca Wallace both met with the media Wednesday.

Here are some highlights:
  • Delhomme has a boot on his right foot and said his goal is to get better every day. He didn't rule out playing Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs, and Browns coach Eric Mangini said a decision on who will start will not be made until the end of the week. But Delhomme wasn't happy about missing practice time.
"It's disappointing; I will say that," Delhomme said. "I've been very lucky in my career injury-wise. It's embarrassing to me; that's just kind of the way I look at it. That's just the way that I am. I believe you should be out there with your guys. But I know this is for the best."
  • Wallace, who received first-team reps in practice, said he's ready to run the offense Sunday if needed. He had 14 career starts with the Seattle Seahawks.
"This is a different system than what I was used to in Seattle," Wallace said. "But all the hard work that we did in OTAs and in training camp, I became very familiar with this offense and I feel comfortable with it."
  • Cleveland linebacker D'Qwell Jackson, who has a pectoral injury, confirmed that he will try to return to practice this week, but he's waiting on word from the doctors. Mangini said Friday could be a target date for Jackson. Also, Browns defensive lineman Shaun Rogers (ankle) and rookie guard Shawn Lauvao (ankle) didn't practice on Wednesday.
  • Sunday will mark the return of former Browns head coach Romeo Crennel, who is now the defensive coordinator for Kansas City. Crennel's defense gave up just 14 points Monday in a win over the San Diego Chargers. Crennel coached the Browns from 2005-2008 and went 24-40 in that span.
