We noted earlier that the Browns had picked up quarterback Josh Johnson today.
He’s not far from having to play Sunday.
According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, both Brandon Weeden and Colt McCoy were held out of practice Wednesday with shoulder problems.
Browns coach Pat Shurmur said Weeden’s shoulder wasn’t as serious as previously thought, and they haven’t ruled him out yet.
But losing McCoy, who was injured late in last week’s loss to the Broncos, would leave them with a depth chart of Thaddeus Lewis and Johnson. Lewis took all the first team reps at practice Wednesday.
If he plays, it would make it just as Brown-ish as you’d expect from a meaningless December game.
