Morata however admitted it has been challenging to adapt to Antonio Conte's tactics.

Rooney also played in both legs of the Europa League third qualifying round against Slovakian side MFK Ruzomberok.

The Browns haven't solved their endless QB dilemma, but Garrett appears to be a long-term answer at defensive end. We've already gone over that, but the effects were that Kizer didn't get in the game until the second half.
