Browns May Be Facing Charlie Whitehurst Instead Of Tarvaris Jackson

The Cleveland Browns have had little time to worry about other teams' injuries this past week, dealing with Peyton Hillis and his hamstring issue, as well as cornerback Joe Haden and his possible return to action following an injury of his own. But their opponents on Sunday have been dealing with a little quarterback controversy - or, rather, uncertainty as Pete Carroll put it - and injury concerns of their own. The Seattle Seahawks currently don't know who will be starting under center when they come into town to take on the Browns.

Carroll is adamant that it's not a controversy because it's injury-related, but Tarvaris Jackson may not be good to go with a pectoral injury. The fans, however, are singing a different tune. They've been clamoring for Charlie Whitehurst to get the start after his heroics against the New York Giants two weeks ago, and they're really not picky about how they get their wish. If it's because Carroll pulls Jackson, then fine - if it's because Jackson is hurt and Whitehurst gets the start in his place, that's equally fine.

Either way, Jackson remains questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, and it will certainly be Whitehurst to take his spot if he can't go. The Browns need to prepare for both quarterbacks, but for the latter, there's really not a ton of film to go on, though Carroll has said he feels confident in him, for whatever that's worth.
