The Cleveland Browns were beat up on Sunday afternoon in a tough, physical against the Pittsburgh Steelers. For the team’s quarterback Jason Campbell, Week 12 was a week that he would like to forget.

Campbell was getting beat up in the pocket by the Steelers pass rush, but the biggest hit of the game came in the third quarter when Steelers cornerback William Gay came unblocked off of the edge. Gay hammered Campbell and even delivered a shot to his head, before Campbell’s head smashed off of the frozen turf and left his bell rung.

As it turns out, Campbell suffered a concussion on the hit.

When Campbell left the game, former first-round pick Brandon Weeden stepped in to provide relief.

Earlier in the game, Campbell had suffered an aggravation to his rib injury, so he will certainly be banged up and feeling rough when he wakes up in the morning.

Campbell will need to pass the league mandated concussion tests before being cleared to return.
