Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden has taken every first-team snap in training camp. He completed 10 of 13 passes for 112 yards and a touchdown in the Browns’ preseason opener against the St. Louis Rams last week. However, that’s still not enough for head coach Rob Chudzinski to say Weeden will be the team’s starter come Week 1 of the regular season.
According to Tom Withers of the Associated Press, Chudzinski says the battle for the starting job between Weeden and Jason Campbell remains “close.”
”There’s a point where I will name a starting quarterback,” Chudzinski said. ”I am not ready to do it yet.”
It still appears to be Weeden’s job to lose. If there truly is a competition for the starting job, Campbell will need to get more involved in the first-team offense in the coming weeks. If Weeden continues to take all the work it seems highly unlikely he wouldn’t be the team’s starter against the Miami Dolphins on Sept. 8.
Weeden started 15 games for Cleveland as a rookie last season. He completed 57.4-percent of his passes and threw for 3,385 yards with 14 touchdowns and 17 interceptions.
