Brandon Weeden injury update: Browns QB has sprained throwing thumb

The Cleveland Browns entered the 2013-14 NFL season with a bit of hype and plenty of expectations due to their revamped roster and coaching staff, but after games against the Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Ravens they are off to a disappointing 0-2 start.

Even worse for the team, during the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game, starting quarterback Brandon Weeden suffered an injury to his throwing hand that forced him to undergo x-rays and put back up Jason Campbell on the field.

The good news is that Weeden’s x-rays did come back negative, but there is no official update on how long he will be out.

According to the Akron Beacon-Journal, Weeden has been diagnosed with a sprained right thumb.

His status for the Week Three match up against the Minnesota Vikings will likely be dependent on how he can grip the ball and whether or not he is feeling pain.

“It was tough to put pressure on the ball,” Weeden said. “It hurts. Doesn’t feel too good.”

Of course, if Weeden is unable to go next Sunday, Campbell will get the start.
