Browns QB Weeden to sit out Bears game
Browns rookie starting quarterback Brandon Weeden will sit out
Cleveland’s preseason finale against Chicago.
Coach Pat Shurmur said after Tuesday’s practice that Weeden, who
did not throw a touchdown pass in three starts, will not play and
Colt McCoy will start against the Bears on Thursday night.
Shurmur said quarterbacks Seneca Wallace and Thad Lewis will
also play against the Bears. Shurmur did not indicate how much time
his QBs will get.
Shurmur said most of Cleveland’s starters will rest, and the
ones who do get into the game will not play much.
McCoy is battling Wallace to be Weeden’s backup. Shurmur may
have already decided on his No. 2 quarterback, but doesn’t intend
to make it known until the Browns cut their roster to 53 players on
