It was just a week ago that the Cleveland Browns watched starting quarterback Jason Campbell suffer a concussion which led to Brandon Weeden starting in Week 13, and now the dreaded head injuries have struck the team once again.
Following Sunday’s match up against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the former first-round pick was diagnosed with a concussion of his own.
Weeden did not tell the team about his concussion-like symptoms until after the game, and the team is expected to provide an update on his status during Monday’s press conference.
If Weeden is not able to go in next weekends match up against the New England Patriots, then the team will have to hope that Campbell is cleared by an independent neurologist in time. If he is not, then the Browns will need to rely on second-year pro Alex Tanney, who was signed off of the Dallas Cowboys practice squad last week. He is best known for his trick shot video that surfaced on YouTube earlier this year.
We will be able to update you on Weeden’s status tomorrow, one head coach Rob Chudzinski addresses the media.
