NFL News: Brandon Weeden’s thumb won’t require surgery

Good news for those who still have included Brandon Weeden in their plans for the Browns going forward. Adam Schefter reports that Brandon Weeden’s sprained thumb will not require surgery and he could be ready as early as next week. Ready for what, you ask? You’ll have to ask Joe Banner, Michael Lombardi and Rob Chudzinski that question.

This news will obviously be overshadowed by the news of the Cleveland Browns trading Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts. As we’ve also heard, it isn’t like Brandon Weeden is definitely going to be in the Browns’ plans going forward as he’s not been guaranteed his starter spot if and when he returns.

For now, though, we’ll have to assume the availability of the number one quarterback on the depth chart sooner rather than later is a good thing.

    Clicked on Schefter’s link and he said that Chuck Pagano calls Richardson “a rolling ball of butcher knives.”
    Really? To me it does not seem like a rolling ball of butcher knives would go very far, and his presence would be dangerous to anyone who had contact with him. I actually made such ball and when rolling it, only averaged 3.6 yards per roll, and could not get it to go more than 20 yards in any of the rolls. Mind you, I had a small sample size.

    Brandon Weeden is not damaged goods!

    The bidding starts at one 3rd round draft pick in the 2014 draft.

  • Wow

    I still say his career in Cleveland is done.

    Stay down BW3 show us you are indeed smarter then we thought. Ride the pine let Hoyer get tossed around like a rag doll while you collect a paycheck.

    You know… Hoyer might surprise us all and EARN the starting spot on the field. Who knows??? Remember Major League when the Owners wanted the team to tank, but they said screw you and kicked ass?? Maybe the football (g)ods will smile upon us. #eternal optimis
