Brandon Weeden to see a hand specialist today

We may know later whether “really screwed up” is a medical diagnosis for Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden, or just a statement of being for the once-proud franchise.

According to Tony Grossi of ESPNCleveland.com, Weeden is seeing a hand specialist today to determine the extent of the injury to his right thumb.

Weeden has already been told the starting job isn’t promised to him when he returns, which gives him all the incentive in the world to make sure he’s physically well for the next team that might be interested in employing him.

Having already shipped out running back Trent Richardson, there’s no point thinking the current Browns administration has any long-term interest in the previous administration’s other 2012 first-rounder.

So with that as the backdrop, Weeden should make sure he’s 100 percent healthy, and able to prove himself to the best of his abilities before he sets foot on a field again. Doing so any sooner  would be a disservice to his own future, whether that’s in Cleveland or elsewhere.

    I only opened this to see a picture of George costanza and you let me down.

    Weeden’s thumb is so screwed up that the Browns will place him on the IR and cut ties with him after the season either by trade or cut. The new regime in Cleveland is letting it be known that Weeden and Richardson were not their guys and they will go on with out them.

    “Once proud franchise”? I think you may be referring to the team currently in Baltimore.

    The “once-proud franchise” moved to Baltimore in the 1990s.

    Please don’t confuse the current with the past.

    Upon examining Weeden’s hand, the specialist concluded that it will no longer be handing the ball off to a franchise RB this season.

    When he’s done maybe he should walk down the hall to see the career specialist.

    The $6.5 millions guaranteed he got from the Browns says he doesn’t have to work another day in in life if he is smart with his money.

    The only way he sees the field again is to visit a magician and learn “slight of hand”…

    Weeden just better make sure his hand is well enough to hold a clipboard for 3 hrs once a week.

    Has any team ever given up on the previous year’s draft this fast?

    Weeden’s like 50 years old, you sure it isn’t Arthritis??

    Forget the specialists and get a good real estate agent.

    I hear there’s a senior citizens league in need of a quarterback.

    And if the first hand specialist says there is no serious damage, they will seek a second opinion. And a third. Or as many as necessary until someone tells them the hand is seriously injured and needs season ending surgery.

    All they had to do was build Art a new stadium and the Browns AND Ozzie Newsome and his personnel staff would have never left.

    All this disaster belongs to Mayor White and the other Cleveland politicos who would never give Art a nickel towards a new stadium…daring him to leave.

    Yet they threw money at Jacob’s Field…the Cavs Arena…and the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame.

  16. tombradyswig says: Sep 19, 2013 3:19 PM

    while he’s there, can he see a professional quarterback specialist to see if there’s any hope?

    Weeden just plain sucks!
