Browns Struggling to Keep QBs Healthy

Before exiting in Week 7 and being replaced by Kevin Hogan, Kessler completed nine of 11 passes for 82 yards.  

Kessler took over as Cleveland's starting quarterback in Week 3 after Robert Griffin III and Josh McCown were injured in the season's first two games. 

He did give the Browns an injury scare in their Week 5 loss against the New England Patriots with injured ribs that caused him to exit after throwing just eight passes. 

Drafted in the third round this year, Kessler has shown some promise for a Browns team still in search of an identity. He completed over 60 percent of his passes in each of his first three games, with one touchdown pass against Washington and another against New England. 

The Browns are looking for someone who can become a long-term leader for them under center. Kessler's early promise is an encouraging sign, but he needs to stay on the field and get reps in order to keep learning the NFL game.
