BEREA — The day Deshaun Watson returned to Browns practice, Amari Cooper got his usual Wednesday Veterans Day off. When Watson returns to actual game action on December 4, however, you can expect him to be looking in Cooper’s direction often.

The quarterback and receiver were able to officially get to know each other again on the field Thursday, the first time they’ve been there together since late August. Cooper knows there’s going to be a lot more time spent together between now and Watson’s return leg in Houston to get back on the same page.

“I’ve been thinking about that,” Cooper said Thursday. “I mean, I didn’t work out yesterday, but after the workout and whatever it takes, talking to him about getting more reps post-workout. It’s actually something I’m really excited about.”

The Browns are really excited about the thought of Watson throwing passes to Cooper. That’s how they envisioned it when they traded for the quarterback on March 18, just six days after acquiring the receiver in a trade with Dallas.
