Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden is "fine" after suffering a concussion in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Jeff Schudel of the Morning Journal.

Weeden wanted to go back on to the field to keep playing, but doctors kept him off, according to the report.

Colt McCoy will start Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders if Weeden isn't ready to go, Schudel wrote.

Weeden, 29, was the 22nd overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. He's started all 11 games for the Browns this season, completing 55 percent of his passes and throwing for 2,456 yards. He's thrown 12 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

Safety Usama Young also left Sunday's game with a head injury and did not return. Young may have a concussion, according to CBS Sports, but nothing has been confirmed.

Young, 27, is in his second season with the Browns. He's played 10 games this season and has started eight of them. He's recorded 27 tackles, six pass deflections, two interceptions and 1 1/2 sacks.

Young was a third-round pick in the 2007 NFL Draft by the New Orleans Saints. He spent four seasons with the Saints, making just six starts in that time. His best season as a Saint came in 2008 when he recorded 27 tackles, two interceptions and recovered a fumble.
