Early in his career at Oklahoma State University, Josh Cooper paid his dues by practicing as a member of the scout team offense along with Brandon Weeden. After those humble beginnings, each player evolved into a college standout. Now Cooper and Weeden are on the verge of trying to establish their wide receiver-quarterback connection for the first time in an NFL regular-season game. They’ll have a shot Sunday when the Browns (0-5) host the Cincinnati Bengals (3-2) in an AFC North rematch from Week 2.
