Cleveland Browns quarterback Jason Campbell took the first-team reps in Thursday’s practice, having been cleared of any potential symptoms through the NFL’s concussion protocol.

Campbell will be officially listed as “limited,” but is reportedly on track to gain full clearance prior to Sunday’s game in Foxboro against the New England Patriots. Surprisingly, Campbell was backed up by Caleb Hanie on Thursday despite reports that he was out-played a day earlier by Alex Tanney.
In five games, the 31-year-old Campbell has completed 87 of his 153 pass attempts (56.9 percent) for 933 yards, adding six touchdowns and three interceptions.
Cleveland’s other quarterback, Brandon Weeden has yet to resume practicing after sustaining a concussion in Sunday’s loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
