NEW YORK — The first day of the NFL preseason ended without a major injury to a starter for the Cleveland Browns.
That didn’t stop the Browns from putting the finishing touches on their roster and moving on from a few players who were expected to be part of the rotation.
The team also moved up from No. 2 to No. 1 in the latest NFL mock draft.
The Cleveland Browns are the first team in the NFL to rank among the top 10 teams in total wins, total losses and points per game in the preseason, the first time that has happened since the NFL started tracking the data in 1993.
The Browns have won seven straight games, the third-longest streak in NFL history.
That streak includes a 12-0 start in 2015.
They are a season-best 18-4 and 11-2 against teams with winning records in the regular season.
Browns coach Mike Pettine said it was too early to call out starting quarterback Andrew Luck, who has been sidelined since Week 4 with a groin injury.
Pettine added that he would make a decision on Luck’s status Monday.
Held on the bench, Luck completed 12 of 21 passes for 122 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions for a 2-2 Browns record.
Pettine said Luck will continue to get the best treatment he can, and he will make a final decision on his future this week.
Luck’s injury could have an effect on the Browns offense, which is averaging just 8.5 yards per play and is averaging a league-low 5.3 yards per carry.
It has been a slow start to the season for the Browns, who are 8-2 when Luck has started.
The Browns had an early lead in the third quarter and then struggled for the rest of the half.
Luck completed 16 of 26 passes for 217 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in the fourth quarter.
Luck has started 13 games in his career, but has been inconsistent and inaccurate with the ball.
Pettines comments on Luck could be a harbinger for his future.
