Weeden cleared to practice with Browns

Updated:

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden is practicing three days after sustaining a concussion and will likely start Sunday against Oakland.

Weeden was injured in the final minutes of Sunday's 20-14 win over Pittsburgh. Weeden banged his head against teammate Joe Thomas' leg as he fell after throwing an incompletion. Weeden was taken to the locker room and backup Colt McCoy came in for two series to close out Cleveland's second win in 18 games against the Steelers.

Weeden was on the practice field Wednesday as the Browns (3-8) began preparing for the Raiders (3-8). Weeden took part in all the drills during the portion of practice open to the media. On Tuesday night, Weeden attended the Cleveland Cavaliers' game against Phoenix, an indication he was cleared to practice by doctors.

Browns coach Pat Shurmur said unless Weeden suffers an unexpected setback, the 29-year-old will make his 12th straight start. Shurmur said McCoy may get a few more snaps this week but "we're moving ahead with Brandon."

Weeden finished 17 of 26 for 158 yards with a touchdown and an interception before he was injured. He has thrown 12 TD passes this season and 13 interceptions. His 55.9 completion percentage is 32nd in the league as is his 70.9 rating.

Browns return specialist Josh Cribbs is not on the practice field. He sustained a shoulder injury against the Steelers.

Also, Browns safety Usama Young remains sidelined with a concussion he received in Sunday's game.
