Browns injury report: Brandon Weeden cleared, Josh Cribbs misses practice

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden returned to practice on Wednesday, while receiver Josh Cribbs was inactive with a shoulder injury.

Although he suffered a concussion in Week 12 against Pittsburgh, Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden was fully cleared to return to practice on Wednesday according to a report by Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer.

Head coach Pat Shumur confirmed that backup Colt McCoy will see extra snaps during the week, but fully expects Weeden to be back on the field under center in Week 13. The 29-year-old rookie had never previously dealt with a serious injury before as a college player, but told Nate Ulrich of the Akron-Beacon Journal that he feels no ill effects from Sunday's game.

"It was mild," Weeden said. "I never got knocked out. I was conscious the whole time, just a little foggy. Obviously the league’s taking these things pretty seriously. So you’ve got to go through the mandated steps, and I passed all those. So I’m ready to rock and roll."

While Weeden was back on the practice field in a limited capacity on Wednesday, Browns star receiver Joshua Cribbs was one of a handful of players unable to take part due to a shoulder injury. Cribbs returned to Sunday's game after originally suffering the injury, but is nursing issues with both his collarbone and pectoral muscle due to the hit.
