Odell Beckham Jr.'s excused, debated absence is over. He's run a comeback route to the Browns.

The star wide receiver practiced with his new teammates for the first time Tuesday after skipping Cleveland's voluntary workouts last month.

Beckham, who was acquired in a blockbuster trade with the New York Giants in March, had drawn local and national criticism for not taking part in the team's offseason program, which included an extra session because the Browns have a new coach, Freddie Kitchens.

Lawsuit blames Woods for drunken driver's death

The parents of a drunken driver who died in a car crash last year are suing Tiger Woods. They blame the golfer and his girlfriend for allowing their son to drive home from their Florida restaurant while intoxicated.

The wrongful death lawsuit filed Monday says Nicholas F. Immesberger was served excessive amounts of alcohol before the Dec. 10 car crash.

Immesberger worked at The Woods restaurant in Jupiter that Woods owns. His girlfriend, Erica Herman, is general manager.

The lawsuit says Herman recruited Immesberger as a bartender despite knowing that he was an alcoholic. It alleges that the restaurant's employees, managers and owners allowed the 24-year-old man to drive after being over-served alcohol.
