Neither Jason Campbell nor Brandon Weeden have been cleared to practice as both quarterbacks attempt to return from concussions.
While both players have been cleared to exercise by the NFL’s concussion protocol, neither has been allowed to take reps in practice, leaving Alex Tanney and Caleb Hanie to suit up with the first team during Wednesday’s practice as the team prepares for the New England Patriots (9-3).
“One week you’re having Thanksgiving with your family, the next you’re with the Cleveland Browns,” said the recently-signed Hanie.
Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski referred to the team’s quarterback situation as “fluid” and “unique.” If neither Campbell or Weeden are available for Sunday’s game in Foxboro, the first-year head coach will have to choose between a player who has never thrown a pass in an NFL regular season game and one who has a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 3-to-10, the latter of which having been on the roster for less than one week.
The Browns are presently 11.5-point underdogs.
