The Browns won’t be making a change at starting quarterback this weekend.

Cody Kessler left last Sunday’s game with injured ribs, but the early word on his chances of playing against the Titans in Week Six was good and things haven’t gotten any worse as the week played out. Kessler advanced from being a limited participant on Wednesday to a full practice on Thursday, which was all coach Hue Jackson needed to confirm that Kessler will make his fourth start in a row.

It’s less clear who the Browns will turn to in the event that Kessler needs relief again this week. They promoted rookie Kevin Hogan from the practice squad and dropped Charlie Whitehurst from the roster on Tuesday, but remain hopeful that Josh McCown can be on the 46-man roster this Sunday.

Jackson said he doesn’t know if McCown, who is recovering from a broken collarbone, will be ready to go after returning to practice on Wednesday.

    Looking at their schedule, there are not a lot of games I would put in the “winnable” category. This is one is in that category. Good luck Browns.

    So far Kessler has been very careful with the ball, lots of shorter passes, few risks: 66.7% passing, 2 touchdowns, 1 interception, only 6.5 yards per attempt. So, sort of in the game manager category. Not bad for a rook. His arm can be considered questionable right now though, and kinda was coming out of college. It’ll be interesting to see how he develops for the rest of the season. Will the coaches let him start taking more risks? So far his head seems better developed than the rest of him, can he keep that up?

    The poor Browns have been suckered before.
    I honestly hope things turn out better this time.

    This is one of the few games I can see the Browns winning and I hope they do I don’t want them going 0-16.

    The Cavs won it all and the Indians are looking good. The Browns seem to be getting worse, and I didn’t think that was possible.
