Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer is reporting that Cleveland Browns quarterback Jason Campbell is feeling better and would like to play Sunday, citing a league source. Campbell is cleared for activity but not for contact as he recovers from a concussion he suffered against the Pittsburgh Steelers last week. The hit was not flagged on the field but the player responsible, William Gay, was fined.
Brandon Weeden, who quarterbacked the Browns in their loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, was diagnosed with a concussion after the game and is now in the league’s protocol. As a result, the Browns are waiting over the next 24-48 hours, according to Rob Chudzinski to get a status update on Campbell or go in a different direction. That direction could be the recently signed Alex Tanney, who was signed off of the Dallas Cowboys practice squad in light of the Campbell concussion. The team has not ruled out bringing in another quarterback or going with Tanney if Campbell is unable to play. The Browns, now 4-8, are preparing to go on the road to play the New England Patriots.
