Browns going with Hanie as Campbell’s backup


The Browns were fortunate to get starter quarterback Jason Campbell back after missing time with a concussion.

But for a backup plan, they’re going with a guy who arrived this week.

The Browns deactivated Brandon Weeden (who hasn’t been cleared from his concussion) along with quarterback Alex Tanney for today’s game against the Patriots.

That leaves Caleb Hanie, who signed this week, as the only backup for Campbell.

The way the Browns have cycled through quarterbacks this year, it may be inevitable that Hanie gets in there.
