Tim KeeneyContributor ISeptember 15, 2013

As if the Cleveland Browns could afford any more problems on offensewhere they have mustered just 550 total yards through two losses to the start the season—quarterback Brandon Weeden suffered a sprained thumb in Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens.

He was ruled out for Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings and Week 4 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Brian Hoyer will start for Weeden in Week 5, though he has been cleared to play.
