Brandon Weeden seems to have returned to normal following a concussion on Sunday, but Josh Cribbs missed practice for the second day in a row on Thursday.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden is showing no lingering signs from a concussion suffered during last Sunday's win against the Pittsburgh Steelers and seems likely to start Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, according to a report by Nate Ulrich of Ohio.com on Thursday.
Head coach Pat Shurmur indicated in the report that Weeden lead the first-team offense for the entire practice on Wednesday. Meanwhile, wide receiver Joshua Cribbs (with shoulder/chest injuries) and free safety Usama Young (concussion) both missed their second straight day of practice, and their availability in Oakland on Sunday remains uncertain.
Cornerback Dimitri Patterson, on the other hand, returned to practice after sitting out the team's previous six games with a torn ligament and high sprain in his left ankle. Shurmur, however, said in the report that he is uncertain as to whether or not Patterson will be able to play against the Raiders.
Weeden threw for 158 yards on 17-of-26 passing with one touchdown and an interception in the Browns' 20-14 over the Steelers on Sunday.
