Cleveland head coach Rob Chudzinski made it official on Wednesday. Brandon Weeden will be starting at quarterback for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Jason Campbell was knocked from the game last Sunday against the Steelers with a concussion. He is still going through the league’s protocol on head injuries. Though he has not yet been ruled out of the game on Sunday, he has not practiced and will not again on Wednesday.
The Browns brought in QB Alex Tanney from the Dallas practice squad this week to play back-up in case Campbell was unable to go. Chudzinski said that the Browns will install a small package of plays for Tanney in the event he is forced into action this week.
The Browns are 0-4 this season in games that Weeden starts. He did come into the Buffalo game in the first quarter for the injured Brian Hoyer and lead the team to a win. For the season Weeden has a 51.5% completion rate while throwing for 1,361 yards, six touchdowns and seven interceptions. He has fumbled four times and has a QB rating of 66.0.
Chudzinski also said that ILBs Tank Carder (shoulder) and Craig Robertson (knee) won’t practice today. CB Buster Skrine (ribs) will practice.
