The 29-year old rookie quarterback out of Oklahoma State hasn't missed a game all season; he's been replaced by Colt McCoy after the injury. Weeden was 12 of 19 on the day for 104 yards in the air. He also scrambled three times for four yards. McCoy has played in just two games all year and hasn't thrown a pass in 2012 after starting in 2011 for the Browns.
Coming into the game, Weeden was completing 57.2 percent of of his passes and had thrown 14 touchdowns to 17 interceptions on the season. There's no word yet whether Weeden's injury is severe enough to keep him out of the Browns' season finale on the road against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
