Cleveland Browns notes: Craig Robertson hanging onto spot in starting lineup

Craig Robertson is holding onto his job as a starting inside linebacker next to Karlos Dansby, his position coach said after practice July 28. Robertson is being challenged by rookie Chris Kirksey, who made one of the highlight plays of the day by intercepting a pass thrown by Johnny Manziel. Linebackers coach Chuck Driesbach said there are so many variations of the defense being used that all the linebackers will get playing time.
