The Browns’ starting tailback resumed practicing on Friday.

Willis McGahee, who sat out practice on Thursday with a knee ailment, returned to the field on Friday morning, multiple media outlets reported, including the Canton Repository.

According to multiple reports, McGahee’s off-day Thursday was planned to rest his knee.

The 31-year-old McGahee has rushed for 164 yards on 59 carries since joining Cleveland in September. He replaced the departed Trent Richardson as the Browns’ featured back.

The Browns (3-3) are one game out of first place in the AFC North. Cleveland plays at Green Bay on Sunday afternoon.
