Browns: Weeden left to wonder about job as he heals
BEREA, Ohio — Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden threw a football yesterday morning for the first time since he suffered a sprained right thumb on Sept. 15 against the Baltimore Ravens.
It represented a significant step for Weeden as he attempts to bounce back from the injury and reclaim his starting job. But nothing has been guaranteed.
“Don’t get hurt,” Weeden said. “I don’t know how else to put it. Injuries suck. They happen. Things happen for a reason, and we’ll see how it plays out.”
With Weeden ruled out for the second consecutive game, Brian Hoyer will start at quarterback on Sunday when the Browns (1-2) play host to the Cincinnati Bengals (2-1). Browns coach Rob Chudzinski has said he wants to keep his options open at the position, even when Weeden is healthy.
