BEREA, Ohio — Jake Delhomme still isn't practicing, Seneca Wallace never has faced the Baltimore Ravens and now a report has surfaced that the Browns contacted the Philadelphia Eagles about the availability of Kevin Kolb.
Delhomme hasn't practiced since injuring his right ankle in the season opener, but Coach Eric Mangini is "optimistic" about his availability for Sunday.
If Delhomme is healthy, he will play Sunday regardless of practice snaps. He set his career passing mark in his only previous start against the Ravens, throwing for 365 yards in a 23-21 victory in 2006.
"I feel really comfortable with his ability to take the information, with or without reps, and be able to execute," Mangini said.

If Delhomme can't play, Wallace will get another start. Wallace completed 16 of 31 passes for 229 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs. He had a long touchdown pass to Josh Cribbs — a play which Cribbs essentially called — but also threw a costly interception that was returned for a touchdown.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Percy Harvin returned to Vikings practice on Thursday after missing the previous session with another migraine headache.
