BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Cleveland Browns starting right guard Kevin Zeitler will miss several weeks of training camp because of a calf injury.
The 28-year-old Zeitler did not practice Thursday, one day after being hurt and walking off the field with a trainer.
"Kevin is going to be OK, but he will be down for a little while," coach Hue Jackson said. "It is unfortunate, but we will get him back. Hopefully, he'll be ready to go in the next couple weeks or so. Those things do happen in training camp."

Bengals looking to get more out of top pick this season
CINCINNATI (AP) — Cornerback William Jackson III spent his rookie season as a spectator, the second year in a row that a Bengals' top draft pick did next to nothing. Cincinnati can't afford for that to become a trend.
Bengals bring back offensive lineman Andre Smith
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals signed offensive lineman Andre Smith on Thursday to shore up a line depleted in free agency.
Smith played right tackle for seven seasons in Cincinnati before going to Minnesota last season. He missed most of the season with a triceps injury that required surgery.
Bengals retain OT Eric Winston, bolstering depleted line
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Cincinnati Bengals have retained offensive tackle Eric Winston for their beleaguered line, signing him Monday to a one-year contract.
Winston, president of NFL players' union, was an unrestricted free agent. He joined the Bengals late during the 2014 season and has started seven games. He shared the right tackle position with Cedric Ogbuehi last season when the first-round pick struggled.
The Browns found a franchise quarterback, just maybe not their own.
Cleveland acquired veteran Brock Oswelier and a 2018 second-round pick yesterday in a stunning trade with the Houston Texans, who were looking for a partner to help them get rid of Osweiler’s $16 million guaranteed contract.
Browns acquire QB Osweiler from Texans
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns found a franchise quarterback, just maybe not their own.
Cleveland acquired Brock Oswelier and a 2018 second-round pick on Thursday in a stunning trade with the Houston Texans, who were looking for a partner to help them get rid of the QB's contract.
The deal will give the Browns more assets to perhaps trade for a future quarterback, and it allows the Texans to clear some salary-cap space to make a run at a starter.
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns are building a wall for their to-be-determined franchise quarterback.
The Latest on NFL free agency (all times Eastern):
A person familiar with the negotiations says the Cleveland Browns will sign free agent guard Kevin Zeitler.
After giving left guard Joel Bitonio a five-year contract extension earlier Thursday, the Browns are investing heavily into their line by adding Zeitler, said the person who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal can't be announced until 4 p.m.
Bengals tender center T.J. Johnson, making him RFA
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Cincinnati Bengals extended a $1.9 million tender offer to reserve center T.J. Johnson on Tuesday, making him a restricted free agent. His contract was set to expire later this week.
Johnson was a seventh-round pick in 2013. He filled in last season when injuries depleted the line and made his first career start at left guard in the final game. Johnson has played in 32 games during his four-year career.
