Browns Coach Hue Jackson told reporters after Sunday’s loss to the Patriots that rookie quarterback Cody Kessler will be “day-to-day” after leaving Sunday’s game in the first quarter due to rib and chest injuries.
Jackson said an initial X-ray on Kessler showed “nothing broken” and that Kessler will undergo further examination Monday.
The Browns were down to wide receiver Terrelle Pryor at quarterback by the end of Sunday’s game. Backup Charlie Whitehurst limped off in the final four minutes with what appeared to be a knee injury. Whitehurst was scheduled for X-rays after the game.
Jackson said veteran quarterback Josh McCown, who’s been out the last three games with a broken collarbone, will get a follow-up X-ray this week.
Cleveland.com reported that Browns tight end Gary Barnidge also had a postgame X-ray on his ankle.
