Willis McGahee is out for the Browns, Brandon Weeden’s back

The Browns will be short a running back because of a concussion, but the good news (I guess) is that they get a quarterback back.

According to Mate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal, the Browns have ruled out running back Willis McGahee for Sunday’s game against the Bears, along with left guard John Greco (knee) and tight end Andre Smith (calf).

In McGahee’s place, fullback Chris Ogbonnaya will get more work, as they’re thin in the backfield. Against a run defense as leaky as the Bears’ it might not matter who’s back there, as everyone seemingly runs for 100 yards against them.

Brandon Weeden has been cleared after his concussion, and coach Rob Chudzinski said Weeden would be the backup behind Jason Campbell.

    Everytime Weeden gets cleared to play a collective sigh goes up in Cleveland.

    Relying on Weeden as the backup is better than some ‘trick shot artist’ who needed 200 takes to complete some of those, but everyone acts like he did them on the first try.

    Well , i am going to guess , most fans are glad there are only three more games ,BW has a chance to screw up .

    In other words, another no name back up will gash the Bears D for 150+ yards.

    Brandon Weeden would be a complete upgrade for the Minnesota Vikings trainwreck under center.

    Willis McGahee is out for the Browns, Brandon Weeden’s back, Fans undecided on which news is worse.

    Cassell is better than Weeden. Campbell is decent though. Browns have some receiving weapons. And defense plays solid.

    Brandon Weeden is a total scrub and I’d be happy if he never took another snap. No doubt about that… But just as loser-ish are the posters who are cracking themselves up with the “WEDONE” joke… like no one has thought of it yet. It was hilarious the first 2 or 3 times. the 10,743rd, not so much. Even funny jokes become boring when the guy who posts it three months after everyone else did thinks he just came up with it.

    I know Minny fans are disgruntled, but my LORD, you don’t realize how wrong you are.
