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.
