Brandon Weeden active for Cleveland Browns tonight; Still believes he can become starter

Sep 15, 2013; Baltimore, MD, USA; Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden (3) warms up prior to the game against the Baltimore Ravens at M

It looked as though the starting quarterback job in Cleveland was Brandon Weeden’s lose when the season opened, but like so many QBs before him, an injury allowed the guy behind him on the depth chart to get a chance to play, and now, there’s no question that Weeden is the No. 2 QB in Cleveland from here on out:



Weeden has missed the past two weeks with a thumb injury, allowing Brian Hoyer to take hold of the Browns’ starting job in his absence.

Still, Weeden is proceeding as though he’ll be starting again this season:

“I’d be lying if I said this was the ideal situation,” said Weeden.”I want to be out there. You never draw it up that you’re going to get hurt Week 2 and stuff like this happens. But it’s life. You can’t feel sorry for yourself.

“I’m treating it like this is still my football team, I’m still involved in the offense. I’m not discouraged.”
