Jason Campbell will start at quarterback today for the Browns against the Chicago Bears. Jay Cutler will reclaim his starting quarterback job from Josh McCown after missing the previous four games with groin and ankle injuries. The move has left some scratching their heads, as McCown is coming off the best statistical three game stretch ever for a Chicago Bears.
The Browns announced today that quarterback Alex Tanney will be inactive for Sunday’s game and that Brandon Weeden will serve as Jason Campbell’s backup. Other inactives for the Browns include running back Willis McGahee, offensive linemen John Grecko and rookies Martin Wallace and Reid Fragel (GO BUCKS), as well as tight ends Keavon Milton and Andre Smith. Jason Pinkston will start in place of Grecko and Chris Ogbonnaya will take McGahee’s starting running back spot (with Fozzy Whtitaker expected to see time as well).
For the Bears, veteran linebacker Lance Briggs will miss today’s game with a shoulder injury. Joining Briggs on Chicago’s inactives list are quarterback Jordan Palmer, defensive back Sean Cattouse, tackles James Brown and Jonathan Scott, defensive tackle Christian Tupou, and defensive end Cornelius Washington.
With some light snow on the ground and winds swirling at reportedly 20-30 mph, it should be a pretty fun and entertaining game.
