BEREA, Ohio -- Browns tight end Jordan Cameron wouldn't discuss details, but let on that talks on a contract extension are on the right track.
"Yeah, it's positive," Cameron said. "The whole process has been positive. I'll leave it at that. It's ongoing and it's going well."
Cameron is set to earn $1.43 million this season and is scheduled to become a free agent in March. He said he is hopeful that something can get worked out before the regular season begins, though Monday's preseason game at the Washington Redskins takes precedent over contract talks.
Perhaps trumping all of that is Cameron's health.
Cameron suffered a sprained AC joint in his shoulder during an intrasquad scrimmage at InfoCision Stadium in Akron on Aug. 2. It was the first such injury that Cameron has had, and as a result, he was held out of the Browns' preseason opener Saturday in Detroit.
"It 1/8stinks3/8 because you've been working so long and going against your own team for the last six months," Cameron said. "We finally get a chance to go against an opponent and really get that game speed down and I was unable to get out there. But it's fun to watch the team, we had some success and we have a lot to work on but it was a positive day, definitely."
Browns coach Mike Pettine said he expects Cameron to be ready for the game against the Redskins and that he could be cleared for contact as early as Tuesday. Cameron participated as a non-contact individual in pads during Monday's seven-on-seven drills.
