Cleveland Browns quarterback Jason Campbell (concussion) has been cleared to start for Sunday’s Week 14 game against the New England Patriots.
Campbell was forced out of the Browns’ Week 12 game after sustaining a concussion in what would eventually be a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The play in question resulted in a fine being assessed to Pittsburgh conerback William Gay, despite a penalty not being called during the game. The Browns brought in quarterbacks Alex Tanney and Caleb Hanie in the event that Campbell (or teammate Brandon Weeden) would not be cleared by the NFL’s protocol on concussions, but it appears that one of them, likely Hanie, will serve as a back-up on Sunday. Weeden has already been ruled out for Sunday’s game.
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.
