NFL News: Brandon Weeden diagnosed with concussion

Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden has been diagnosed with a concussion and is in the middle of the NFL’s usual protocol for treatment. He reported symptoms after the game, per a team spokesman, and thus did not speak to the media.

Weeden threw for 370 yards and three touchdowns on Sunday, yet had two interceptions and a lost fumble. Wide receiver Josh Gordon had a record-breaking game with his second straight 200-yard game.

Brian Hoyer is out for the season with a torn ACL. Jason Campbell is already out with a concussion, although coaches were optimistic about his progress throughout the week. Alex Tanney is the only other quarterback on roster after being signed from the Dallas practice squad earlier in the week.

The Browns play in New England next week.

    So Weeden has a concussion. Allow me to be the first to make the obvious tasteless joke:

    How could they tell?

    I’m not buying it until Brad McCoy weighs in.

    The last three minutes of the first half were what sealed it.

    For Brandon’s sake, the sake of the Browns and their fans, and the sake of the entire city of Cleveland, I hope he doesn’t play next week regardless of his injury. It simply must stop.
