Jason Campbell cleared to practice for Browns

The Browns are a step closer to having something resembling an actual NFL quarterback on the field Sunday.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, quarterback Jason Campbell has been cleared to practice today after his concussion two weeks ago.

While that’s still a step short of the necessary clearance from an independent neurologist, it’s at least a positive sign the Browns might not have to start trick-shot artist Alex Tanney or the just-signed Caleb Hanie this week.

Of course, the possibility of making Browns fans update that list of starting quarterbacks since 1999 does have a twisted bit of anticipation about it.

Brandon Weeden has not yet been cleared to practice after his concussion, and since these things move in stages, makes it unlikely he’d be ready for Sunday’s game.
